Milan - Go shopping in Milan, Italy’s fashion and design capital. Embrace the juxtaposition of dated historical buildings and tall, modern skyscrapers, and experience luxury whilst visiting this region. This city is jam-packed with fancy outlets and lavish boutiques, as well as virtually untouched ancient courtyards to inspire the hopeless romantic within you.
Rome - Explore Italy’s most famous city, Rome, on the back of a Vespa. What could be more Italian? While you’re roaming Rome, be sure to book a tour around the ancient Roman ruins, such as the Colosseum, or relax in a traditional Roman bath house. The food in Rome is unparalleled, so make certain to enjoy a customary Italian pizza or pasta before you leave!
Puglia - Escape the tourists in the quiet region of Puglia, this area offers everything from beautiful azure coastlines, to quaint old towns, rich in culture and charm. You’re more likely to see an Italian tourist in this sunny region than an English one, meaning you can fully immerse yourself in Italian culture. A tip for visiting this exquisite expanse is to hire a car or Vespa to dart through these picturesque old streets, as it’s not possible to get everywhere by rail or bus as easily as it would be in more populous areas of Italy.
Sicily - Get lost in the Mediterranean Island charm of Sicily, Italy. From its baroque architecture to its natural wonders, there’s something for everyone in this region. Scale Mount Etna (a large active volcano) or unwind on one of Italy’s virtually undiscovered beaches on your trip to Sicily. Plus, part of its location is in line the North African coast, which makes the weather hot in the summer, and fairly mild all year round!
Florence - Absorb yourself into the wonders of Florence, Italy. Often called the art capital of Italy, Florence is in the core of Renaissance culture, with many tourists flocking to admire the original paintings and sculptures of the likes of Michelangelo and Raphael. Florence also, surprisingly, harbours a bustling and vibrant nightlife, as well as a tremendous scene for opera, galleries and museums. All these attributes make it the perfect destination for the sophisticate, and the ordinary traveller.
Travel Risks in Italy
Italy is a relatively safe place to travel, but beware of thieves and pickpockets, especially in larger, more tourist focussed cities like Rome and Pisa. Keep an eye on your belongings at all times.
Scam artists have also been known to operate in Italy, so be vigilant of those offering to help you with your luggage or taking a sudden, increased interest in you.
Italy hosts popular ski resorts and slopes, so take care when taking part in these activities, and make sure you have the appropriate cover.
