Italy is the country that captures my heart every time I visit. It is one of the main inspirations behind this travel blog.
From its vibrant cities to the gorgeous Italian lakes and coast, the landscapes will get you first. And then there’s the food and culture. There is truly something to enchant everyone.
The country’s famous tourist attractions are popular for good reason but it’s also been my mission to uncover the best-kept secrets in Italy – local restaurants, quiet regions and bustling smaller cities.
All popular cities, like Venice and Rome, are well connected by train, car, or aeroplane. The best and fastest option is travelling by train, and the best way to see Italy is by car, so this Italy travel itinerary is a mix of those.
Italy is a must-visit country and is one of the most-traveled destinations in Europe. There are so many highlights in this beautiful country — from the canals of Venice to the Tuscan wine lands to the cobblestone streets of Rome to the Arno river running through Florence to the cliffs of Positano… and beyond.
Florence was one of my favourite cities because of the architecture and natural beauty— the sun setting over the Arno River is something you can’t soon forget.
Rome is one of the most iconic and most travelled cities in Europe and you could spend days getting lost in this magnificent destination. The most picturesque spots in Italy might just be Cinque Terre and all the stops along the Amalfi Coast. Positano is the gem of the Amalfi Coast and is arguably the most picturesque and most romantic town in the whole of Italy.
The cheapest time of year to visit Italy is in the winter. From December to March, the cold weather keeps most travellers at bay, and you can explore the country’s incredible museums and galleries to your heart’s content.
