If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, then why not give Italy a go? Full of history and filled with great food, there is something for everyone. You can sample some of the beautiful Italian wine, or just enjoy the laidback way of life. Here are some of the best places Italy has to offer.
Located in the north of the country, Verona is famous for being the setting for William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” In fact, there is a 14th-century house in the city known as Juliet’s House with a balcony, even though the building’s connection to the story is fictional. The city is also home to vast amphitheater which was completed in 30AD. The city itself is full of beautiful historical sites and is ideal for anyone looking for a cultural trip.
Perhaps most famous for being a fashion capital, Milan also offers high-end dining and plenty to see. The architecture there is astounding, with Milan Cathedral drawing in visitors from all over the world. There are plenty of art galleries and museums, so you won’t be short of things to do. If you are planning a trip here, you should check out singles holidays to Italy where you can meet like-minded travelers.

Visiting the capital of Italy is an extraordinary experience. If you know anyone who has been, you’ll know how much everyone falls in love with the city. From the ancient Colosseum to the stunning Trevi Fountain, there seems to be history everywhere you look. There are so many different places to visit here such as the Sistine Chapel or even a trip to the Vatican. There are also hundreds of cafes to sit and just watch the world go by with an espresso, or perhaps a glass or two of prosecco.
No trip to Italy would be complete without visiting Venice. The city is built on more than 100 small islands, and there are no roads or cars. It’s a wonderful place to experience, and you haven’t lived until you’ve been on a Venetian gondola. Take a trip to St. Mark’s Square and see the famous Basilica de San Marco, or see the Penny Guggenheim Collection. Whatever you do here, you’ll be certain to fall in love with the Venetian way of life.
Ok, so it’s not IN Italy, but it is just off the mainland. The Italian island Sicily is a beautiful place full of rich culture and beautiful scenery. Situated in the Mediterranean Sea, this is a perfect holiday destination for those seeking something a little different. It’s a mixture of Greek temples, Norman churches, and Baroque palazzos. You can also check out the volcanic landscape of the Etna region. There are miles of sandy beaches and hidden coves so that you can combine a relaxing break with a cultural education.
