Incomparable Piazza San Marco, Venice
If you’re planning a trip to the exciting boot-shaped peninsula in southern Europe but don’t really have a clue which cities to visit in Italy, then you might want a few pointers, especially if your time or other resources are limited.
From eating authentic pizza in Naples to visiting the quiet villages of the Cinque Terre, there are lots of places to see and things to do in the country that has been at the forefront of many important movements in history.
See Naples and Delight your Taste Buds with Authentic Pizza
Naples is one of the busiest cities in Italy. The capital of the Campania region, Naples has a plethora of historical sites, art galleries and beautiful streets that are teeming with life. The atmosphere is vibrant, the people friendly, and you also get to experience the nightlife in one of the many night venues.
And while you’re in Naples, you certainly don’t want to miss eating the authentic pizza made here. This extremely popular food that has taken over the world actually originated in Naples, so if you want to taste what a true pizza really is like, you can’t find a better location
If you’ve seen all the movies with tourists in Italy, then you know what Venice is all about. The canals are running throughout the city, which isn’t actually just one piece of land that’s divided, but an archipelago of 118 islands which are connected through one another by countless bridges.
You can take a ride with one of the gondoliers and experience these scenic canals first hand and relax while immersing in the atmosphere. Just don’t count on each gondolier to be a natural born singer, and you’d best avoid busy hours.
Stroll through Cinque Terre
In case you want something less popular, then Cinque Terre, is the go-to destination. In Italian, this means five lands, which are actually five villages interconnected by quiet roads. There are 5 villages perched on the cliffs of the Italian Riviera.
Although they are not technically cities, from Riomaggiore and Manarola to Monterosso, Corniglia, and Vernazza, Cinque Terre will provide you with panoramic trails, quiet restaurants to eat delicious food and charming strolls through the narrow streets where you get to interact with friendly locals.
If you’re planning a trip with your other half, then you’d be delighted to know that you also get to walk the Via Dell’Amore or Love Walk from Riomaggiore to Manarola and enjoy a marvelous view.
