What to visit in Italy?
Let’s begin our journey in the north of Italy, in the Dolomites. These Unesco World Heritage-listed mountains will delight hiking enthusiasts. Further south, discover the romantic Venice and its many canals. St. Mark's Square (Place Saint Marc) and gondola rides have made this city the second most visited in Italy. West, you’ll fall on the Italian fashion capital Milan. The inevitable of this city is the Piazza del Duomo and its cathedral. From the top of its dome you will have a superb panoramic view of Milan. Nearby, go to Lake Maggiore and its Borromean islands which offer you an exceptional scenery. The fashionable destination right now in Italy are the Cinque Terre, five small cliff-sided villages that offer a panorama of postcards. You have the possibility to discover the Cinque Terre by means of hiking circuits or by boat. Let’s continue our round of the boot, further south, in Pisa. We no longer have to present his famous Tour of Pisa but discover the other monuments of the city. Further east, discover Florence, the most visited city in Italy and the most beautiful in Tuscany. Its rich cultural heritage comes from the Renaissance era. The Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Basilica San Miniato al Monte make it famous. En route to the south, the capital, Rome. Since ancient times, Rome has become the most important city of Italy. On every street corner you will come across an exceptional building of the ancient era such as the Colosseum or the Roman Forum. Do not leave without throwing a coin in the Trevi fountain, or without visiting the Vatican City. On the Mediterranean coast, discover the city of Naples from where you can embark on the Capri island or walk the remains of Pompeii, at the foot of Vesuvius. Finally, we finish this journey with a deserved rest on the beaches of Sicily and Sardinia. Throughout this trip, enjoy the Italian gastronomy, its famous pasta and pizzas.
