Top 5 Cities to Visit in Italy
- Rome is an epic city including such extremely grandiose ancient monuments as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Fontana di Trevi, Saint Peter's Basilica, Castel Sant’ Angelo. There are many beautiful squares in Rome, among which the best are Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Navona, Piazza del Popolo, and Piazza Cavour. You would definitely want to visit Vatican City. Keep in mind that you have to book tickets in advance or take a tour to get in such places as the Colosseum, Saint Peter's Basilica because the lines to the ticket offices are endless. As you can see a couple of days is not enough to see all the sights of Rome. It wouldn't be a bad thing to create a list of places to visit and make a rough itinerary.
- Florence is the capital city of the Tuscany region with beautiful landscapes, gorgeous sculptures and rich artistic legacy. Tuscany is the home of many influential people of Renaissance such as Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Niccolo Machiavelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and so on. Thus, we can say that Florence itself reminds a big museum with many sculptures and monuments around the city. Also, Florenc has many hidden sights, for instance, a simple building from the outside can appear to be a genuine masterpiece inside. If you have a chance to see the top view of Florence, go for it without delay. Take your time to enjoy the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
- Venice is widely known as the city of love and romance. You will fall in love from the first sight with its cozy small streets, fancy bridges, and unique building. Here are several things you should definitely experience in Venice:
- walk around the tremendous St Mark's Square;
- take a public waterbus (vaporetto) on route No. 1, which will take you all way long across the Grand Canal surrounded by many magnificent palaces;
- cross the Rialto bridge
- take a 30 minutes romantic ride on a gondola, drink a glass of champagne and find out why all gondolas are painted in black colour.
- Milan ia a city, which represents the mixture of historical and modern sights. It is a paradise for those who enjoy shopping, football, opera, and nightlife. Milan has the biggest and grandest Gothic cathedrals in the world, the Duomo; one of the best established opera houses in the globe, La Scala; an ancient and glamorous arcaded shopping gallery, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele; a huge and famed stadium, the San Siro; and a grand medieval castle, the Castello Sforzesco.
- No matter what time of year you plan to visit Naples, here is a list of the things not to be missed in this one of the oldest cities in the world.So, while in Naples visit impressive Royal Palace, visit old city of Naples including Castel dell'Ovo, walk along Spaccanapoli street, enjoy one of the three authentic types of Napolis pizza. For history lovers, no trip to Naples would be complete without a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius and National Archaeological Museum.
Top 5 Tips While Travelling in Italy
- Italy is the country where you should be more careful than anywhere else if you don’t want to spoil your holiday! We strongly advise you to watch your money, valuables and passport especially when you use public transportation and visit public places (WC, cafes, train stations etc.). Never, under any circumstances, leave them unattended, especially your passport and money. One moment of your inattention may cost you spoilt holidays, undesirable delays and unwanted hassle. According to the statistics, every year British consulates in the south of Europe deal with 6,000 cases of lost or stolen passports. A lost passport is much more than inconvenience. So, make sure to have the copy of your passport in a safe place. Watch the video with advice for British tourists on how to take care of your passport when visiting Italy.
Always keep your eyes open and keep your stuff as close to yourself as you can!
- If you are going to Italy in summer, please, remember that it is extremely hot in most of south cities such as Rome, Florence etc. There is a probability that such heat could leave you dehydrated and feeling unwell, so take sensible precautions to avoid such problems. Visit the supermarket before you spend the day sightseeing and get yourself a large bottle of water since buying water in tourist areas can be twice expensive.
Take care of your health and your expences!
- Lines to the ticket offices are endless in Italy. Thus, if you don't have much time for waiting in lines try to book tickets in advance to take a tour or to get into such places as the Colosseum, Saint Peter's Basilica etc . Booking online is very easy and not that tiresome.
Save your time by booking tickets online.
- Crowds of tourists are everywhere in touristic cities. This fact complicates taking decent pictures because someone always gets in the frame. To avoid crowds of tourists, you should come either early in the morning or late at night. Also, don't forget to consider the sun position.
Learn tricks to make great shots.
- If you plan a single trip travel to Italy, you definitely want to have a stress free holiday, so make sure you have a decent travel insurance policy covering for personal accident, catastrophe, passport and money loss and with pre-existing medical conditions covered for free.
