Italy is synonymous with good food and fantastic wine, grand cities filled with ancient history, grand architecture and gelato at every corner!! Usual places to visit in Italy are Venice, Rome, Vatican City, Florence and Milan. And while they are fantastic cities many tend to find them repetitive and overwhelming. According to us the best places to visit in Italy are the smaller rural villages and scenic areas like the mountains, lakes and national parks of Italy.
If you are going to visit Rome add a few nights in Naples, Amalfi Coast and Capri. If you are short on time opt for daytrips to these wonderful places. From Florence you must visit Tuscany and Cinque Terre. Pisa with its leaning tower is a popular daytrip from Florence. From Milan make time to visit the beautiful lakes of Como or Maggiore.
