Title: The Best Places to Visit in Italy; My Personal List

The Best Places to Visit in Italy My Personal
Italy, one of the worlds favorite and much loved
travel destinations could easily take a lifetime
to explore. City after city beckons not only for
their ancient monuments and art treasures but
also for gastronomic delights, a frenzy of
fashion, breathtaking landscapes and warm,
friendly people. Though even the best travel
guides to Italy will be at a loss when asked to
pick and choose places in Italy one should not
miss, listed below is an attempt at condensing
the best of Italy.
Venice If you get a choice when it comes to
loosing your way while on vacation, opt for
getting lost in the winding waterways and
mysterious passages of Venice - an archipelago of
118 islands all picturesquely connected to each
other by beautiful bridges and charming canals.
One of the most alluring cities in the world,
none can rival Venice, a city drenched in beauty
and romance. Not to miss sites the Grand
Canal, Palazzo Ducale.
Florence If beauty could be labeled as a city
it would be called Florence. Famous for its
hoards of art and architectural treasures,
Florence is legendary as an outdoor museum. Its
world-renowned art galleries Ufizzi and Pitti
Palace rub shoulders with a bevy of reputed
museums and stunning churches. Not to miss sites
Michelangelos David, Piazza del Duomo.
Milan - Fashion mecca to most, Milan also
doubles up as a culture buffs dream destination.
Its fashionable streets, lined with designer
shops and teeming with well dressed wonders also
lead to magical sites like Santa Maria della
Grazie the church that is home to Leonardo
DaVincis The Last Supper. The La Scala Opera
House and the Milan Cathedral, having survived
heavy bombing during the Second World War, stand
today in Milan for visitors viewing pleasure.
Not to miss sites Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
Naples Home to the pizza, spaghetti and
parmigiana, food is taken with a certain degree
of seriousness here. A gastro-hub, Naples is
known for its quality cuisine. Visit Naples also
for its various monuments and historic sites.
Feast your eyes on finds excavated from the
destroyed cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum,
buried under Mt. Vesuvius lava, now on display
at Museo Archeologico Nazionale.
Pisa Synonymous with the Leaning Tower, Pisa
also retains other glimpses of its former
grandeur as a commercial hub during the middle
Ages. Sites to visit include the Duomo,
Baptistery and Camposanto.
Amalfi Coast Stretching 30 miles along Italys
southwestern coast, Amalfi Coast is one of the
countrys top tourist spots. Known for its sheer
physical beauty, the coastline also boasts plush
resorts and charming villas perched on rocky
cliffs facing its sparkling bays.
Bologna Though not a tourist magnet like
Florence and Rome, this historic university town
is charming in its own right, and fun to discover
in a laid back way. Sample the cuisine, if only
to see how it is different from what is served
under the citys name in other parts of the world!
Rome What trip to Italy can conclude without
Rome in the mix? Also called the Eternal City,
it has been the seat of power since the times of
the Roman Empire. So, it is jam packed with
cultural and historical sites of much
significance. Not to be challenged in the
religious field, Rome proudly shows off the
Vatican City. Known for its squares and
fountains, doing justice to the Italian capital
can mean spending the entire span of your
vacation in one city. Not to miss sites Trevi
Fountain, Pantheon, Colosseum, St Peters
