Arguably Europe’s most luxurious and enticing country, Italy charms visitors with irresistible food, stunning architecture, diverse scenery and unparalleled art.
If you only manage to travel to Italy once or twice, start with visiting the big three: Rome, Florence and Venice. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you certainly can’t see it in one either. Take your time wandering around the Colosseum and the 2000-year-old Pantheon, walk the Spanish Steps and make all your dreams come true by tossing a coin in the Trevi Fountain. A visit to the Vatican is also a must – to explore its art-filled museums and the sacred St Peter’s Basilica.
In the Tuscan city of Florence, spend your time in museums, galleries and medieval churches, all boasting priceless works from well known names from the Renaissance, while in Venice, glide down the Grand Canal by gondola and tour the grand Palazzo Ducale.
