With so many holiday destinations available, Italy can arguably be said to be Europe’s most toured country. The country offers enticing tourist destinations that are unlike any other. Italy features charming architecture, impeccable arts, ancient and modern scenery, and mouthwatering dishes, among many other things to enjoy.

Are you planning a trip to Italy, and wondering how to get the most out of your holiday? Perhaps the first thing to consider would be the types of activities and sites that are most interesting to you and your traveling companions. Whether looking for historical sites and ruins, museums featuring classic works of art, tours of vineyards and world-class wine cellars or water attractions featuring beautiful lakes or miles of sandy beaches, Italy has it all!

Rome is a particularly popular destination. Featuring the famed Trevi Fountain, the Palace ruins of Palatino, Vatican Museums, and the Pantheon that has been standing for more than 2000 years, there is plenty to see and do in this historic city. Venice is another gem, featuring a city that seems to float. From the grandeur of St. Mark’s Basilica, the wonder and history of the Doge’s Palace, the fascinating Bridge of Sighs to the Grand Canal, Venice has plenty of options for those enjoying a trip to Italy. Those wanting to explore the region of Tuscany should discover Florence. Known as the Cradle of the Renaissance, this magnificent city features numerous art galleries with works by some of the world’s most famous artists, the spectacular Duomo with its stunning terra cotta roof and the famous Boboli Gardens, offering beautiful backdrops for photos. 

Though Rome, Venice, and Florence provide unique sites and opportunities for visitors, Italy has many more destinations to discover. Naples, for instance, is home to Mt. Vesuvius, featuring the famous ruins of Pompeii. It is also home to Castel Nuovo, which is a Medieval castle featuring imposing towers, a chapel and a civic art museum. The beautiful Teatro di San Carlo is the oldest theater in Europe that is still in working order. Naples is also home to centuries-old catacombs, numerous castles, churches and historic sites. Those seeking the finer things in life can go shopping in Milan, or get away to the stunning Italian Riviera, which are both favorites of celebrities and royalty alike.

Each region and city in Italy holds something for everyone. Whether taking a bike tour across rolling hills with vineyards and wildflowers, skiing the less-busy Italian Alps, snorkeling or scuba diving in the pristine waters, visiting historic sites and ruins, exploring museums featuring famous works, indulging in local cuisine, enjoying bustling city centers featuring fascinating history and local goods, or relaxing on a beautiful shore below breath taking cliffs, the possibilities of a trip to Italy is only limited by the imagination.

This magnificent boot-shaped country has a variety of landscapes and climates, featuring innumerable activities and historic sites to explore. A well-planned trip to Italy will provide experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
