Five Things To Do In Italy That Make For A Well-Rounded Vacation
If you had to pick any country to visit, what would it be? My first pick has always been Italy. Italy is a country that oozes romanticism, and it is also all about the arts. Many writers have traveled Italy, penning literary works in various places. Italy is certainly a country that I would want to visit, and there are some great places of interest to visit in many cities all over the country of Italy. Let’s look at five of the top attractions there.
Ortigia is located at Corso Umberto, and it is an entire island. See what you get when you decide to visit this first attraction? You get an entire island, and there is an old town with narrow streets and historic places of interest.
One of the places is Piazza Duomo. You can walk around the waterfront, too, and there are said to be all kinds of great restaurants there.
Sassi di Matera is another old town that is a very popular place of interest. It is located in Matera, and it is said to be a European city of culture. This is where Mel Gibson filmed ‘Passion of the Christ.’ This historic town also features narrow streets, just what you would expect to see in Italy.
People say that this place is a bucket list destination, and there are also cave dwellings there. This attraction is a UNESCO site.
Doge’s Palace is the next place to visit, and it is in Venice. Located at Piazza San Marco, this place features the Bridge of Sighs, a dungeon, the Correr Museum and much more. This palace is full of things to check out. Reviews also talk about a golden staircase, and people say to make sure that you take what is called the secret itineraries tour. That way you don’t miss anything.
Next is The Roman Forum, and it is of course in Rome at Piazza Santa Maria Nova. This is one of the places in Rome where you get to check out ancient ruins. If you also stop by The Colosseum to take the tour, you get to go to the Roman Forum as part of your ticket.
Florence is home to the Uffizi Galleries, and there are so many famous paintings to see there. Italy is definitely a country to visit when you want to see art, especially historical art. There is an audio guide available when you visit Uffizi Galleries, and reviews talk highly of the place.
Do these five places seem like some of the best attractions in all of Italy? Remember, the first two are more than just one place of interest, and that palace is huge with plenty of things to see. Thr art museum features work by Da Vinci, and well, you get the idea. You are going to enjoy seeing as much of Italy as you can, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea at all to start with these five places.
