There are many incredible attractions in the capital of Italy, located in the central region of the country. You can start by visiting the Colosseum, which is the symbol of Rome and one of the most visited monuments on the planet. Be sure to visit the Roman Forum, which is located very close to the Colosseum, the Pantheon, St. Peter’s Basilica and to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain.
Although known as the capital of fashion and shopping, Milan has much more to offer. Start by visiting the Milan Cathedral in Piazza del Duomo, which is the historic center of the destination. You should also visit the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, considered one of the most beautiful galleries in Europe and the Sforza Castle, which is located in the center of the city and houses several museums.
One of the best things to do in this southern Italian city is to eat and there you will find the best pizza in the world. So be sure to try the typical Neapolitan pizza of Naples. Take the opportunity to visit the historic center of the city, walk along the famous Via San Gregorio Armeno and visit the Piazza del Plebiscito, the Galleria Umberto I, the Cappella Sansevero, the Castel dell’Ovo and the Castel Nuovo.
Continue the route by car, now already in the Chianti region, famous for its wines. In the afternoon you will arrive in Florence and you will have time to stroll through its historic center. Book a hotel to spend the night in Florence. For dinner we will recommend a real gem: a local restaurant, very good and cheap.
The route continues this day to Venice. For this, you can continue with the rental car but we recommend you to go by train (in the Detailed Route we will give you the website and directions so you can book it without problems). Upon arrival you will have time to visit St. Mark’s Square and surroundings. Overnight in Venice.
Recommended route to stroll through the most emblematic neighborhoods of Venice: San Polo, Dorsoduro and Santa Croce. Night in Venice. We will recommend several local restaurants, especially to try the “cicchetti”, Venetian tapas bars very famous among the locals but unknown to most tourists!
This route starts in Rome and ends in Venice, because this way the round trip flights will be cheaper for you. You can always do it the other way around, following the directions of the Detailed Route in the opposite direction.
If you are about to travel to Italy, you will love this section of the blog. You will find information about different destinations, itinerary ideas and data that will help you organize your trip to the Bel Paese and enjoy it without rushing.
You’ve decided to travel to Italy and now it’s difficult to choose the places to visit. Or rather, which ones to leave for your next trip. Italy is divided into 20 regions, each one is a world of its own. Not only historically and politically speaking, but they have different traditions. That’s why one of the options to organize a trip to Italy is to dedicate yourself to discover a particular region. I’m telling you that you will have to leave some things for your next trip. But who’s complaining, right?
I am one of those who believe that gastronomy is a fundamental part of the trip. Through flavors we can learn about the history, traditions and culture of a country. And all this while enjoying one of life’s pleasures: eating, in every corner you visit in Italy you will find a gastronomic world to discover. In this section of the blog I will tell you which are the typical dishes you have to try and, in addition, I will share with you alternatives where to taste them.
I already told you in my article on what to see in Italy in 30 days, many of these places, but this time I will focus on the most interesting regions. So, you will not necessarily have to make a long route, but I give you the option to make short trips to its different regions.
It’s close, it’s spectacular and you’ll be able to see it better than ever, without the hordes of tourists that usually make it more difficult to visit. While they still keep the borders closed with other non-EU countries, it is the best way to get close and see the best places to visit in Italy.
Beyond the must-sees like St. Mark’s Basilica or the Rialto Bridge, I recommend you to wander around Venice. Moving away from this area, where there are always people, you will find other equally beautiful, full of bridges, canals and historic buildings, but completely empty.
Emilia Romagna unjustly goes unnoticed as it is located between Veneto and Tuscany, two of the most touristic regions in Italy. However, it is another truly amazing region for a getaway.
