It’s simply unbelievable how many Italians remain at home during holidays. Where should they travel, if they do have a captivating culture, kilometres long beaches and white mountain peaks in winter. Check out the ten places that you should not certainly miss while you are in Italy. Or at least some of them 🙂
There is a good reason why to visit Venice, it is one of the most romantic cities in the world and the most famous city in Italy. So many cultures, galleries, museums, churches and basilicas are in one place what is only typical for Venice. Venice in fact is not only about history, but also about current fashion. There are many favourable Factory Outlets. Beware of visiting Venice in the summer, it is literally overwhelmed by tourists. The Best time to visit Venice is from September till April.
Tuscany is a beautiful region in central Italy. Visitors attracts the beutifulscenery, hills vineyards, historical cities, works of art, great food and wine of the famous Chianti area. Holiday in Tuscany will certainly be one of your life experiences. One of my tip is to visit Pisa.
Pisa is worldwide famous because of the 56-meter high Leaning Tower. The tower at its height is currently moving away from the axis by about 4 meters, compared to the axis up to 4 degrees. In the past, it tilted even more, but reconstruction in the years 1990 – 2001 it straightened up a bit. It’s certainly one of the best photogenic tourist spot in Tuscany.
