Italy is the land of large ice cream scoops, beautiful designs, coffee, pasta, pizza and the Pope. If you want to stroll through ancient streets, enjoy the classic architecture and see for yourself what it is like to live in this beautiful country, then you have come to the right place in Italy. We recommend a city trip to Italy because you get a good and broad picture of the entire country and can see several beautiful places in one holiday. But which cities are really worth visiting? That is difficult to decide. Fortunately, we have listed them here for you.
First of all, there’s Milan , because of all the high street fashion stores you’ll find here, also known as the Paris of the Mediterranean. Milan is the city for all fashion lovers and has streets full of shops from Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and you name it. You don’t have to be rich to shop here, there are plenty of shops with a less extreme price range. In this city you also have the football stadium of AC Milan and Internazionale , great for football fans. Milan still feels really authentic compared to the other hotspots.
Then of course you have Rome, the capital of Italy. In Rome there are sights such as the imposing Colosseum where gladiators used to fight, St. Peter’s Basilica (in Vatican City) with Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and the Trevi Fountain that seems to bring good luck. Rome is busy in high season, so book tickets well in advance. However, the city is rich in history and if you want to get a good picture of Italian history somewhere, it is in Rome, which is why the capital is on our list.
If you want to leave the bustle of the city behind during your city trip in Italy and enjoy a quiet sunset on a secluded beach with a clear blue sea without tourists, then you should go to Cagliari† Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia, the largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily. It is quite a trip by boat, but because it is so beautiful and quiet here, we wanted to mention the city. You will find a rocky landscape here and it is nice and warm.
Then there is Florence, also known as Firenze and is located in the region of Tuscany. It is here in this city where the renaissance began and you can still see this strongly in both architecture and art. You have the famous Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo) and the Baptistery. Both are crowded but not without reason, the architecture and aesthetics are very impressive. Of course, in addition to the countless ice cream stalls, you also have atmospheric alleys filled with restaurants that serve you the tastiest pizzas and pastas. Florence is also a good starting point for day trips to surrounding villages or walks in the area.
