Italy doesn’t feel like Italy if we don’t mention Venice with it. This canal city is not like any other city in the world, this place flaunts its own distinctive charm that indeed is non-pareil. However, many cities like Macau and Las Vegas have some attractions inspired by Venice. But of course, what’s original is always closer to hearing. The Gondola ride through the city’s most iconic landmarks is the most beautiful experience to have when you’re here. If you’re on a honeymoon, you must go for private gondola serenade tours. You get your own gondola and the rower sings beautiful folk melodies to make the moment even more romantic.
Rome, the city that shows the best of Renaissance art, architecture, and of course history will move you. There are museums, art galleries, and archeological sites that are picture-perfect and have legends to narrate. St Peter’s Basilica is indeed a site that’s symbolic of Italian tourism. This is the largest church in the world. Similarly Colosseum, the royal Roman theatre is massive, having the capacity to host as many as 55,000 visitors at a time.
When we talk about Tuscany, we automatically start picturing miles of rolling hills covered in vineyards and golden sunsets to adore. Tuscany can be regarded as the Wine Capital of Italy tourism without a doubt. Besides wine tours here, the art will leave you bewitched too. Gallery of Uffizi and Leaning Tower of Pisa is among the most popular attractions in Tuscany. But, if you’d much rather lose yourself in the countryside, then you must opt for bike tours which can be taken in groups too.
If you’re thinking of gorging on pizza when in Italy, you can not go to Naples. This is where you’ll get the best of pizzas in the world. Alongside the gastronomical experience, the sight of Naples is to die for! The colorful buildings by the shore and volcano Mount Vesuvius in the backdrop take my breath away. Castel Sant’Elmo military fortress, Capodimonte Museum, National Archaeological Museum, Naples Cathedral- II Duomo, and Piazza San Domenico Maggiore are among the top places to visit in Naples.
Often known to be the Fashion Capital of the world, Milan is among the best tourist places in Italy for fashionistas, and even for football enthusiasts. When you’re here, don’t miss the fashion shows organized twice a year. Or if not, window shopping in world-renowned designers’ studios is something that will give you an insight into the fashion scenario of this grand city. Basilica Sant’Ambrogio, Navigli Lombardi canal, and Milan Square (Piazza del Duomo) are some of the must-visit places to visit on your visit to Milan.
