Why Travel Italy?

 

Italy with its capital Rome is home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Other major cities of the country that are a must visit include Florence, with Renaissance treasures such as Michelangelo’s "David" and its leather and paper artisans; Venice, the sinking city of canals; and Milan, Italy’s fashion capital.

 

One of the most important visits on your list should be the Valley of the Temples, in Agrigento which is an extensive archaeological site containing the well-preserved remains of various Doric temples dating from the 5th century B.C. Next stopovers include the Cinque Terre, Uffizi Gallery, Colosseum, Sassi di Matera, Sassi di Matera, Amalfi Coast to Capri Boat Excursion, Historic Centre of Siena, Vatican, Saint Mark's Basilica, Roman Forum, Blue Grotto, Grand Canal, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Duomo - Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Trevi Fountain, Assisi, Mount Vesuvius, Aosta Valley, Lake Como, Chianti Wine Route, Frasassi Cave and the Trulli di Alberobello

 

Also recommended is spending 15 minutes with “The Last Supper” in Milan which most tourists skip but this is the only city where you can see Leonardo’s masterpiece of “The Last Supper.” It’s a heavily regulated 15-minute time limit, and you’ll need to get your tickets well in advance, but it’s worth it. Also don’t forget to Eat pizza in Naples as there’s nothing like eating something as universally well-known as pizza in the place where it was born, and for that you’ve got to go to Naples.

 

A motherland of artists and scientists that changed the shape of the world, home to the greatest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites, and a kaleidoscope of bewitching vistas - Bella Italia! From the staggering antiquities of Rome and the alluring romance of Venice to the rolling hills of Tuscany and the cosmopolitan flair of Milan, the country is a bottomless well of attractions.
