The food, history, culture and beautiful landscapes are all calling my name.

Rome

Starting off with the obvious choice of the Italian capital of Rome. I’ve seen numerous bloggers such as Bee and Lily visit recently which has only fueled the need to book a trip. The city holds so much history with so much to see and do such as The Colosseum, Pantheon and Sistine Chapel just to name a few. I can also imagine there are a lot of hidden gems to be uncovered throughout the cities cobbled streets.

Milan

Oh, The fashionable City of Milan. I came pretty close to booking a trip last year but it all fell through. I’d really love to visit Milan during Fashion Week when it plays host to some of the fashion industry’s most iconic fashion house’s showcasing their new collections. A visit to the incredibly stunning Duomo Di Milano Cathedral would be a must do.

Sicily

Sicily sometimes gets overlooked and I’ve had a few friends who visit every Summer and their photographs just look delightful. From stunning beaches, Unesco World Heritage Sites and incredible landscapes, there certainly is a lot on offer. Traghetti PER have put together a handy infographic with their 5 landmarks for an unforgettable tour which can be viewed here. The island can be easily accessed and ferries to Sicily depart from various ports along the Italian coast.

Venice

Venice is another destination I’ve seen so many bloggers visit recently and I’m green with envy. This place is just an iconic destination with over 100 small islands separated by canals, there is so much to explore. Charl is always visiting Venice and has just posted a blogpost on how to make your trip as affordable as possible which is super handy. In between all the exploring, eating pizza and gelato, a visit to the colourful island of Burano would be a must visit.

5 Places I’d love to visit in Italy - Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast just looks like the dreamiest and most instagrammable destinations. With so many beautiful towns along the coast, it would be rude not to explore them all. Positano and Sorrento are high on my list and would be perfect bases for day trips over to Pompeii or Capri.

Believe it or not, this is just a very condensed list of place I’d love to visit in Italy with Florence, Lake Como, Verona, Naples, Sanremo, Lucca and Pisa all high up on my list. Fingers crossed, I’ll finally take the plunge and book a trip to Italy in the next year so I can immerse myself in the food, culture and history.

Have you been to any of the places mentioned? Where’s your favourite place in Italy?

XOXO

    Italy looks like such a beautiful place! Itd love to go. I’d really like to go to Verona. You’ve picked some fantastic places.

    Ahh I am just back from Italy, I was lucky enough to be able to book a trip to Verona and Venice for my 21st! Thank you Ryanair and your 10 euro flights. I would definitely say a trip to Venice is a must it is such a unique place. At times I genuinely felt like I was in some sort of magical wonderland. Burano was also a highlight it was just so fun and vibrant and different from the mainland. I’ve already published a few posts about my trip and am in the process of writing my Venice travel guide on my blog too. I’ve seen some beautiful posts on Positano so that is next on my Italy list along with Rome (inspired by the Lizzie Maguire movie of course ha!) xx
