Your perfect Italian itinerary, Rome to Milan
Italy with thousands of year of history and culture has more Unesco World Heritage cultural sites than any other country. Visiting Italy is like walking in the footsteps of ancient Romans. It can be very overwhelming and thrilling all that at the same time. Millions of travelers travel to Itay for the worlds best pizza, pasta and wine. I can assure you that Italy is so much more than just history and food, the natural beauty of Italy is second to none with its pristine coastlines, snow-capped mountains, gorgeous lakes and refreshing landscapes.
In Rome, you get to lose yourself in the presence of Michelangelo’s David and Sistine Chapel frescoes. Be wowed by the timeless Colosseum and get inspired by the vibrant streets of the hot-blooded capital.
This Medieval city will impress you with its red-brick lanes and amazing architectural building surrounding the main square where Siena comes to meet and greet its visitors in style.
Cinque Terre, Italy
Cinque Terre seduces travelers and tourist visiting Italy. The city offers the best of both worlds. Sun, stone/pebbles style beach, fresh seafood, local wine and last but not least, pure tranquility are all factors that make this place a must go. This little fishing village is now on the tourist radar, which means it can get quite busy in summer months.
Lucca, the city of Walls. Best way to enjoy the layers of history and the urbane Lucca charms is by foot or push bike. I believe, Lucca is Italy’s most impressive fortress city.
Florence is very touristy, expect lots of crowds everywhere in Florence. Rightly so, this city is home to the Renaissance, and here you will get to admire the best Renaissance art in Europe.
San Marino is the fifth smallest country. This little cliffhanger is going to take you for an adventure of your life. Might be small in size but it sure is big in personality.
Bologna’s leaning towers put Pisa to shame, yet I did not know about these towers until I visited Bologna. The city impressed me with it’s alive, vibrant street markets, the food culture, and the history.
Venice, being a canal city, is very different to everything you have seen in Itay and is sure to wow you. During the day, Venice will impress you with the museums, churches, shopping and food culture and after night falls, Venice will seduce you with dancing under the stars in the square or gliding in a gondola in the moonlight or just simply enjoying a delicious glass of wine and watching the sunset.
Lake Garda, Italy
Lake Garda is the best place for you to stop and smell the flowers, away from the hustle and bustle of busy cities. Enjoy the nature where Italy lakes meet to the Alps. The surreal beauty and history of this Lake will make it very hard to leave.
Genos is known as a major port city in Italy. For some reason, tourist and travelers overlook Genoa when they visit Italy. I am so glad I visited this beautiful city. Layered with thousands of years of history, food and culture this city surprised me.
Milan is known for its high-end fashion industry, but it is so much more than just fashion. Here, the locals known as Milanesi people are a work of art, as you wander the streets you soon notice, the cigarettes are chic, the women shop in vintage clothing and stilettos, the dogs and the handbags are fancier than you can imagine, and even cheese comes gift wrapped.
