Choosing must-see places in Italy is easy to do: it is not exactly like there are only a few places to choose from! However, narrowing them down to just five places is incredibly difficult. Although this is by no means a definitive list, the following five would probably be on most people’s to-do list, so you might want to keep them in mind for your next holiday in Italy.
1. The Amalfi Coast
TheÂ Amalfi CoastÂ is one of the most popular places for Italian holidays. The stunning beauty of the area is the stuff that holidays were made for, and you can stay in different places in the 30-mile stretch and travel around at your leisure. The coastline is incredibly picturesque, dotted with cliffs, beaches, lemon trees, quaint villas and more, and you will find it in the Campania region in the southwest of the country.
2. Lake Como
Lake Como is arguably the most beautiful of Italy’s lakes, and the surrounding area is also spectacular. You may want to stay in one of the towns next to the lake, where you will find yourself surrounded by beautiful architecture, and you can then spend your days relaxing in the water or enjoying various water activities.
Some of the best towns to visit here include Como, Bellagio and Cernobbio, and you can also take a trip to the island of Comacina.
As one of the most beautiful of Italy’s cities, Venice attracts a huge number of visitors each year. Its famous waterways, gondolas and exquisite architecture make it a unique place to visit, and you will be able to see highlights such as St Mark’s Basilica, the Grand Canal, the Bridge of Sighs and Piazza San Marco.
Of course, even if you want to visit somewhere as beautiful as Venice, you may not want to spend your entire holiday here. If so, you could always try aÂ multi-trip holidayÂ instead by booking with a specialist like Bellarome. That way you could see as much of Venice as you want and then spend the second half of your holiday seeing another of Italy’s beautiful cities.
4. Cinque Terre
The name Cinque Terre means ‘Five Lands’, and this is because it consists of five villages. It is located in the region of Liguria in the northwest of Italy, and the main attraction here is the stunning surrounding landscape, made up of high cliffs and ancient vineyards, making this a beautiful area to explore.
Florence is the best city in Italy for Renaissance lovers, and you will be in awe of its fabulous architecture, museums and art collections. See Michelangelo’s ‘David’ in the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, the Piazza della Signoria, the impressive duomo with its huge dome, and the Campanile Bell Tower with its incredible views as you explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
See more than one place on your holiday
When you plan your holiday to Italy, these five areas are some of the best places you can choose. However, don’t feel the need to stay in one place. If you want to see multiple destinations, that is always a possibility, and you could get even more from your time in Italy.
