AD- This a sponsored post. All thoughts are my own.
Italy is right at the top of my travel list, and there are so many amazing places I want to visit in this warm and varied country.
As a history lover, Italy has so many historical buildings and interesting spots, and I would love to wander around one of its famous art galleries- with a scoop of gelato, of course.
From historical attractions to gorgeous weather, Italy has it all. And you really can’t beat the food!
In this post, I’ve put together the top 8 places I want to visit in Italy when I next travel abroad.
While I’m in Italy, I want to try lots of tasty food! Naples is known for its ice-cream and pizza, and there are so many places to explore in this pretty city.
Naples is also on the coast, and it looks like a picturesque place to enjoy a trip away.
There are lots of ways to make a booking for fantastic holiday accommodation across Italy, including ebooking sites that put together any information about hotels and other places to book, and allow you to make a reservation for a service via the Internet.
Rome is a history lover’s dream! There is ancient history all around you, and there are so many things I would like to do in Rome.
From looking at the colosseum to taking a picture in front of the Trevi fountain, Rome is steeped in history and culture.
Ever since I watched the film ‘Letters to Juliet’ I have been obsessed with going to Verona! This is where the play ‘Romeo and Juliet‘ is set, and there are lots of romantic spots to check out in this picturesque city.
I really want to visit Juliet’s balcony, and I think this would be an amazing place to visit in Italy when I get the chance.
Florence looks like a beautiful city, with lots of churches and spots of religious history. There are also lots of art galleries and museums in Florence that I would love to check out.
I loved learning about the Medicis in University, and even just wandering around the city and checking out the beautiful architecture would be enough for me!
Pompeii is basically like a museum in itself, and as a history lover it is somewhere I would love to visit.
It is the oldest archeological site in the world, and the whole city has been excavated to see what it once was, before Mount Vesuvius erupted and covered the city in molten ash.
Venice has always interested me, especially because it’s so different to anywhere I’ve ever been.
Using gondolas to get around the city instead of walking is one of the reasons why Venice is so famous, and I think a visit to this city would be a unique experience.
This is technically a sovereign state in its own right, but it is a place I would love to visit if I ever travel over to that area of the world.
Despite not being religious myself, I am very interested in religious history- and I would love to see everything this tiny place has to offer.
Are you really a tourist in Italy if you don’t take a cheesy picture with the leaning tower of Pisa?!
I would love to check out Pisa for its history and culture, including lots of ancient churches and even a few medieval palaces.
