Some years ago I had an amazing trip in Italy. Let me share with you the hightlights of what you need to do in Italy. We took a boat from Patras, Greece to Ancona, Italy. The trip to Ancona lasted a half day (most of the time the trip is at night so you have time to get some sleep).
First stop: Venice. What a romantic place! Venice is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world, due to the city being one of the world's greatest and most beautiful cities of art. Today, there are numerous attractions in Venice, such as St Mark's Basilica, the Grand Canal, and the Piazza San Marco. There, we had the opportunity to have a tour with a gondola, taste gelatos, and visit the litle island of Murano where muranno deco are artcrafted.
Next stop : Garda: There we visited Gardaland, the Eurodisney of Italy let us say a place full of adventure and energy. The next stop was Italian riviera! Portofino is the most beautiful place! The part centered on Sanremo, is the "Riviera dei Fiori". Green everytwhere, colourful flowers, and fantastic hotels!
Then we went down to Florence. Florence is famous for its history. A centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of the time. Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, and has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages. Old buildings and an air of majesty. We had a long walk at the city and we stayed in a wonderful hotel.
Next stop: Pisa. The building which leans on one side is fantastic!
We then spent some days in Rome! Rome is the ancient city of Italy and its current capital. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are amongst the world's 50 most visited tourist destinations. Among others, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture in Rome is the Piazza del Campidoglio by Michelangelo. Rome enjoys a Mediterranean climate. It is very beautiful! Fontana di Trevi is the most amazing place! Shopping is one of the things to do in Rome as well as tasting spaggetti and pizza.
I really had the greatest memories during this trip! Why don't you try it?
