Best Places To Travel In Italy

1. Rome

Filled with ancient monuments and art galleries, the Vatican City provides a beautiful insight into the history of how Rome wasn't built in a day. Although the city is jam-packed with tourists for the most part of the year, the Pantheon, Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and the numerous basilicas and museums are a must visit when in Rome. Do not forget to relish the gelatos and pasta while exploring the ancient city. 

2. Naples

Located in the southern coast of Italy, Naples provides a good base to visit most of the colourful coastal towns such as Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento along with the historical city-Pompeii. It is situated close to the oldest active volcano, Mount Vesuvius that holds a historic significance in turning the city of Pompeii to ruins. Naples also happens to be the birthplace of the beloved dish-pizza so make sure to visit the L'antica Pizzeria in Naples for an authentic Neapolitan Margherita pizza. 

3. Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most marvelous region in Italy for those who revel in the concept of art and wine. Surrounded by acres of rolling fields filled with vineyards and olive groves, the countryside of Tuscany makes for a perfect vacation for those inclined towards some seclusion and peace. One can even opt for some adventurous treks along the Apennine Mountains or simply enjoy the waters at Island Elba. The world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa is located in Tuscany and is definitely worth spending a day here.
