Think Vespa tours amid vineyards, eating gelato on venetian canals, shopping in Milan, Roman statues, the Vatican and of course Italian pizza.
Rome, the capital of Italy, is the city acclaimed for its astounding architecture, rich history, Roman ruins, and wide collection of arts.
While in Rome, make sure you check out some of the many iconic landmarks:
The Colosseum – the largest amphitheater ever built, made out of concrete and sand. Most of the structure is still standing today.
The Vatican City is home to the Catholic church and the Pope. (Remember to dress conservatively to gain entrance). Here you can see the famous brushstrokes of Michaelangelo in the Sistine Chapel.
The Pantheon Stands as one of the most well preserved Roman structures.
Don’t forget The Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona.
Florence: Is recognized as the capital of Italy’s Tuscan region. Florence has many iconic art and architecture pieces dated back from the Renaissance era. One of the most notable structures in Florence is the Duomo, which is the large and world famous cathedral.
Venice is Italy’s “sinking city.” Venice is made up of 118 small islands which can be reached by the large canal system, linking the islands to one another. Don’t leave without taking a gondola trip and treat yourself to a cornetto gelato!
And located on the southern edge of Italy, the Amalfi Coast traces the Sorrentine Peninsula and offers breathtaking views from sheer cliffs and dotted with pastel colored buildings.
