8 Best Places To Visit In Italy

8 Best Places To Visit In Italy.  Where Italians go!

You’re at a restaurant and wish for wine, but you’re unclear what to order. A Tuscan Chianti or Piedmontese Barolo?  Or, do you want to splurge on new boots, a winter coat or possibly a handbag.
There are great places in Italy that offer Italian-manufactured clothing and footwear which are coveted around the globe for their quality and brand. The point is, Italians have great taste. Like, Maserati- and Marni- great taste.

<img src ="Destination Italy" alt="Italian">
Destination Italy

You can depend on that Italians’ favourite domestic travel spots are as favoloso as his or her food and fashion.
The best places to visit in Italy are numerous and here, we’ve outlined the superior destinations where Italians themselves holiday.

Southeast Italy.
The southeastern the main country (i.e., the heel of the boot) is less crowded plus more affordable than places like Tuscany and also the Amalfi Coast. Add sandy beaches with clear waters plus historic significance and head towards the peaceful Puglia countryside.
It becomes clear why this region is really popular with vacationing Italians. The beautiful and historic capital of scotland- Lecce (the “Florence with the South”) is one kind of Italy’s most under-the-radar destinations for food and culture, with restaurants, shops, piazzas and palazzos. You'll find the Basilica di Santa Croce -- maybe the most beautiful church inside the city.

<img src ="Places In Italy.png" alt="Italian">
Great Views

Lecce is located inside Salento region, that's famous due to its wines. The wine-producing area of Salice Salentino is thirty minutes west from Lecce by car. On the Ionian side of Salento is historic Gallipoli, whose scenic old town is placed on a limestone island linked on the mainland by way of a 16th-century bridge. Other popular places add some resort towns of Torre Dell’Orso and Otranto, the place defined by its ancient stone buildings, plunge-ready rock pools and laid-back beaches like Baia dei Turchi.

Amalfi Coast is one of the places that swarms of tourists -- even Italians -- arrive daily to view one in the world’s most popular coastlines. Yes, you will find massive summertime crowds, exorbitant high-season hotel rates and hard-to-navigate roads, even so the payoff -- ingesting vertigo-inducing views on the Mediterranean and exploring unbelievably photogenic villages that are part of rocky cliffs -- will probably be worth the travel hassles.

<img src ="Facts about Italy.png" alt="Italy">

Our Amalfi Coast Trip is exciting covering Rome Amalfi and Sorrento.  Naples Italy can be a foodie destination of legendary proportions, and Naples in excess of pulls how heavy it is on this front.
The third-largest city in Italy, Naples is widely viewed as the birthplace of pizza, countless visitors here are on the pilgrimage to get the very best pie topped with San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella and charred to chewy perfection in a very wood-burning oven. Naples’ culinary delights don’t begin and end with oven-fired pizza: The port city is renowned due to its seafood, spaghetti, gelato, zeppole, coffee, wine and limoncello (strong lemon liqueur, emphasis on strong). Between euphoric throes of meals, there’s plenty else to try and do. Naples is one on the oldest cities in Europe -- its origins date to your 9th century B.C. -- as well as profusion of art, architecture and archaeology could vie with Rome and Florence.

<img src ="Florence.png" alt="Italian Tour">

For example, the historic centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) is home of the Chiesa di San Gregorio Armeno, a 16th-century Baroque masterpiece; the Duomo, a Roman Catholic cathedral that broke ground from the 13th century; and San Giovanni Maggiore, a basilica with stone original to its fourth-century construction. Though Naples’ prestige dates to antiquity, the modern-day experience on the city is rife with grit, graffiti, trash, crime and congestion.

Sicily is certainly a hub for writers, artists and expats. Today, the island’s countless annual tourists include celebrities, NBA stars, media moguls from worldwide, and, increasingly, mainlanders. In fact, as outlined by data from UnionCamere Sicilia (this company of Sicily’s Chambers of Commerce), around 50 % of Sicily’s visitors in the past several years have been Italians themselves. Like those travelling from abroad, Italians arrive at Sicily to determine sparkling seas, rugged landscapes, Roman and Greek ruins and charming old towns with winding cobbled streets and tiled roofs. Cefalu, is the quintessential Sicilian seaside town, filled with excellent trattorias and cafes. Hike to the very best of the town’s iconic La Rocca for excellent views on the surrounding landscape and Tyrrhenian Sea.

<img src ="Capri.png" alt="The Trip to Italy">

Northern Italy’s Mountains and Lakes
Most pop culture buffs could play a really quick word-association game with all the phrases “George Clooney” and “Lake Como.” Long before it turned out a favorite for American A-listers, the famous Alpine lake while others nearby were Italian idylls for European royalty, romantic poets, diplomats and well-off natives. Even ancient Romans were drawn to the region’s spectacular lake and mountain views. Today, aquatic events, boating, hiking, biking (ambitious cyclists can loop Lake Como) and wildlife-spotting are favorite pastimes.
In addition to Lake ComoLake Garda (the country’s largest lake) and Lake Maggiore are top destinations in northern Italy.

A trip to Lake Garda, Venice and Verona is a must.
The lakes shores are lined with lush woodlands, beautiful villas and picturesque villages -- Bellagio on Lake Como (dubbed “the Pearl with the Lake”) and Riva del Garda and Bardolino on Lake Garda are specifically popular stopovers.

Siena and Rural Tuscany Siena might be considered the prototype for Tuscan towns.
Its centro storico (historic center) is packed with narrow, pedestrian-only streets and sites just like the magnificent Siena Cathedral and Piazza del Campo, Siena’s main square -- viewed as one with the best samples of a medieval square in Europe.

<img src ="Amalfi.png" alt="Italian">

Every July and August, Piazza del Campo fills with countless bystanders to the Palio di Siena, annual races where jockeys ride horses bareback round the treacherous track and tight corners. Outside of Siena’s historic walls, the Tuscan countryside rolls outside in every direction. This section of the world has long enticed travellers featuring its bucolic fields and farmland, dotted with moody cypress trees and rustic farmhouses, along with its wine, thermal hot springs and hiking and mountain-biking trails.

All around are castles, monasteries (such as the roofless Abbey of Saint Galgano in Chiusdino), and walled towns dating on the Middle Ages. One such town, San Gimignano, inside the province of Siena, is notable with the Romanesque and Gothic architecture seen in its UNESCO-designated historic centre.

Emilia-Romagna Tuscany and Naples are really no slouches on the subject of food and wine, but Emilia-Romagna is Italy’s true epicurean superstar.  Italian cuisine -- Parmigiano-Reggiano, prosciutto, polenta and pastas like tortellini, lasagna and tagliatelle -- are native to the northeastern region.
You can tour the region with a 6 day train journey covering Venice, Florence, Lucca and other major interesting sites. Here is the Link for the Orient Express Train Journey

Needless to say, food tours with the Emilia-Romagna countryside and cities of Bologna and Parma are must-dos, though the region’s magnificent basilicas, piazzas and museums demand lots of sightseeing time, too. (A short list includes the Basilica San Vitale and Mausoleum of Galla Placidia in Ravenna, Modena’s 12th-century duomo, as well as the ancient Bridge of Tiberius in Rimini.) Emilia-Romagna’s terrific food, wine and historic sites include the stars in the show, and also the region’s remarkable affordability relative to your more touristy

Tuscany is the icing on the cake (or perhaps the balsamic vinegar of Modena about the strawberries, because the case might be).

<img src ="Sardinia.png" alt="Italy Tour">

Sardinia is to Italians exactly what the Caribbean is to North Americans. The island’s Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) from the north is specially beautiful, with sandy beaches and exceptionally blue waters. The area was developed in the1960s as a possible exclusive getaway for your uber-rich (think Russian billionaires with mega-yachts). That level of luxury still exists, however these days Costa Smeralda attracts tourists all walks of life -- especially during its peak season in August and September.

Costa Smeralda is among Italy’s most iconic attractions, there is however a stunning coastline throughout Sardinia, on the dramatic windblown terrain of Capo Testa in the north to your breathtaking beaches near Capo Spartivento in the south. And the vertical cliffs of Capo Caccia in the west create spectacular sunset viewing.

A ferry ride from the area of Palau delivers visitors towards the Maddalena islands, an archipelago with crazy-beautiful beaches which might be mostly untouched by tourism -- for the moment.

<img src ="Flights.png" alt="Flights to Italy">

Flights to Italy are frequent and the trip takes around 3 hours from UK airports.
