Cities to See in Italy

When overseas, you have many options on where to spend your time. People spend years planning trips to just one location, so one thing you should remember is that you can’t see everything in one trip! Here are some of the locations in Italy you may want to make time for, along with some of the reasons why.

Rome
Going to Rome can be one of the most exhilarating experiences for history buffs. The city is one of the oldest in history, and the culture is unique to Europe. Locations like the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are not only beautiful impressive structures to behold, but they are old as the day is long.

Even the street food is delicious!   This city is well known for a reason, and one visit here and you will understand why millions visit each year.

Florence
Ever hear the term Florence Syndrome? It is the term people get from having their senses overwhelmed by beautiful art. It can cause light-headedness and fainting in some people, so if you’re a fan of beautiful buildings and art, you may want to bring a friend to catch you! The city welcomes all, and is home to sites such as the Santa Maria Novella, and Florence Cathedral (known as the Duomo). You can also find one of the World’s finest museums, the Uffizi Gallery.

Venice
Who can resist the open water canals in the city of Venice? Catch a ride in one of the chartered gondolas, or walk along the cities many pathways and bridges to get to such locations as the Santa Maria della Salute, the Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge.

    I totally agree with Kat…Naples should be considered a must, especially if you want to get away from the tourist hordes.This is Italy at its most raw and basic, a city to be allowed to wash over you and not just oohed and aahed over while following a tour guide. And don’t forget Siena, a jewel of a city that defines the ambience of La Toscana. Of coure Rome and Florence absolutely mut be on one’s agenda! By the way, the Trevi Fountain, beautiful as it is, is not very old even by our Western standards. Also, consider the Trastevere section while in Rome.
