The beaches in this part of the country are simply beautiful, and they have yet to be taken over by hotels, shops, and restaurants making them ideal if you love to lay on a quiet beach and forget all of your troubles.

It simply wouldn’t be right if you came to Italy and didn’t visit Venice, even for just a few hours. This magnificent city that’s floating on water is a must-see destination for all tourists. Make your way around St. Mark’s Square. If you don’t arrive in Venice with a camera, you will be disappointed.

Sardinia

Rome is another city that you just have to visit when you’re in Italy. If you’re a fan of classical ruins and churches, this really is the place to be. You don’t have to be the world’s biggest fan of early Christian churches to appreciate how beautiful and significant some of the buildings and ruins are. Once you’ve had your fill of architectural and history, why not take a walk around some of the local shops that can only be described as ‘Quirky’. Wine connoisseurs will love Rome thanks to the availability of some very tasty and locally produced wines. With a mild climate and a city that is simply stunning, you must come to Rome when you have the chance.

Milan

Known as one of the fashion capital’s of the world, Milan is the ideal destination if you are happy to shop ‘til you drop, and browse those stores that are just a little too expensive. But shopping and fashion are not all that Milan offers, it is also home, as you would probably expect to some historical buildings that can be found standing right next to skyscrapers, making Milan a very interesting place to be.

The Italian Lakes

The foothills of the unbelievably beautiful Alps make their way to Italy’s northern plains and it’s here when you can find some of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes. One of the wonderful things about visiting the Italian lakes is that they look almost as they did a few thousand years ago. Make sure you bring some good shoes or boots with you as you’ll need them while you make your way around the lakes, taking in their beauty and history.

Italy is a very beautiful country that’s full of some very beautiful cities. With historical buildings, amazing scenery, and some interesting stories to tell, each of these cities is well worth a visit. But you don’t have to be a huge fan of architecture to make your way around the cities as they also host some excellent shops, highly recommended restaurants and good nightlife.
