Do you know any great place to visit while in Italy?


Country: Italy


All places in Italy are great!!! Milan, Rome, Venice, Siena,Napels ............
Of course all the Peninsula is a great land to visit!
But if you want to experience something different...come to the South and Calabria, the southernest region.
I'ld be happy to advice/help you to enjoy this beatufiul and undiscovered part of Italy!
Italy is rich of culture and there is a lot to do from sightseeing to museums, opera, great food and shopping. I highly recommend you Rome for its countless monuments, works of art, spectacular architecture, ancient culture, fun and of course shopping districts.
Hi! Please, tell me exactly where you'll stay in Italy and then I can suggest area to visit.
It's depends how long you will stay...
Of course I would suggest to you to visit Rome, Naples ( Pompei excavation) Florence, Siena and if you have more time to visit Sicily ( Palermo-Sircusa-)...
The relaxing lakes in the northern region, the welcoming Sicily with the best ancient Greek temples in the world, the wonderful rocky and sandy coasts of Sardinia with their crystal-clear emerald waters, the rolling hills of Tuscany with they world-wide famous vineyards, the breathtaking views of the bay of Naples and Capri island, and of course the 3 most important art cities in the world: Venice, Florence and Rome.
thera are many many places to visit;I live in Perugia so I can tell you about Umbria.
I shortly write obout the 7 good reasons to visit Umbria:

1 ART AND CULTURE: A journey amongst architectural splendours, masterpieces of art, and cultural events.
2 NATURE AND PARKS: Life and sport in the protected areas
3 MYSTICAL UMBRIA: A pilgrimage to the places of spirituality
4 ARCHAEOLOGY: Discovering buried treasures
5 FOOD WINE & OIL: The traditions of ours grandmothers
6 HANDICRAFT: Traditional products and artisan jewels
7 WATERS: Taking a plunge into wellness

In Umbria you learn to know the
meaning of beauty. Umbria is the
heart of Italy, but not simply for its
geographical position. The region’s
wealth of natural and artistic
wonders seems almost inexhaustible.
Travelling the roads of Umbria is a
journey full of surprises, continuously
suspended between the signs of a
well-preserved past and a vocation
for the future that is entirely new,
that has reawakened Umbria from
a torpor that lasted for centuries
(from the Renaissance onward, at
least), bringing to light a region that
is alive and exquisitely beautiful.
Umbria today, reinventing itself
fashionable but without overdoing
it, has much to offer visitors: sport,
culture, museums, epicurean delights,
healing waters, and musical events
of international renown. Because
Umbria is a land of balance, able to
assemble a thousand facets and a
thousand different souls into a single
fresco, a blend of man and nature,
intense spirituality and secular
pride. Immersed in an atmosphere
of palpable harmony, every stretch
of land and every city has its own
unique identity, the result of millennia
of civilisation that have left dense
layers of memory and timeless
masterpieces throughout the land:
Umbrian, Etruscan, and Roman fi rst;
the extraordinary - and in many ways
revolutionary - period of the Middle
Ages, and then the Renaissance. In
parallel, rural ingeniousness patiently
chiselled the environment, reclaiming
land, tilling and planting olive groves
and vineyards that not only produce
prized oils and wines but have become
the symbol of the region. Dotted with
medieval towns and silent hermitages,
the Umbrian hills have just as much
to offer as other regions that may be
more famous. In Umbria you need only
travel a few kilometres to discover
places of unspoilt wilderness, with
centuries-old beech woods, deep
caves, and mountains populated
by ancient legends. And Umbria is
also rich in water: it rises in springs
and mountain lakes, runs in rivers
that carve impressive rocky gorges,
and broadens out into wetlands and
man-made lakes that are magically
transformed into nature reserves.
Lake Trasimeno, the gentle fl owing
of the Tiber, and the leaping falls of
the Cascata delle Marmore all seem
to have been created intentionally to
inspire poets and painters. At the end
of the journey, one thing is certain:
Umbria has a true vocation

Wow!! this is a like opening Pandora's box. Rome, of course, is a must see city.
One thing to mention is that even though Italy is a small country, from north to south it is very diverse in food, language, and cultural traditions. I always ask what are your interests? For art you must visit Florence. For food, any of the regions. All have their own food and wine traditions. Italy is delicious. For nature, the mountain of Abruzzo can't be beat, nor the sea of Salento.

Italy is a gorgeous place in nature, diverse in culture, and rich in history and art. You can find anything you are looking for.
I would suggest South this time. Go down to Amalfi coast. Stop by Positano. Try some limoncello and some great pastries. Drive around, stop to eat at small local tratoria. If you like bigger cities, then Napoli you shouldn't miss. Has everything, from history, culture, great food ( they invented pizza), best gelato in the world, etc.
Sure, Tuscany is a beautiful region, where Nature meets Culture and History. Florence, Pisa, Lucca are great places to visit. And Siena too.
