Looking to visit multiple stops in Italy?

When booking a holiday to Italy, many people decide that they would like to see more than one destination. And that makes good sense because Italy is a fairly small country that is easy to get around. In addition, it has so much to see that it would be a shame to stick to one place.

At Bellarome, we provide a wide range of multi-centre holidays in Italy, so you can combine two or more destinations on your trip and enjoy even more of the country.

So how can you go about seeing more than one place on your Italian holiday?

Choose your destinations
This is the hardest thing to do when you start planning your trip. Where exactly should you choose to visit when there are so many beautiful cities, regions, beaches and more to see?

Start by thinking about regions you might want to explore. These could include:

  • Sicily, an autonomous region where you will find beautiful beaches, ancient attractions, the mighty Mount Etna and the Aeolian Islands;
  • Tuscany, a beautiful region where you will be able to relax with a glass of Chianti while exploring the numerous World Heritage Sites;
  • Umbria, a small region where you can explore the most beautiful scenery in the Apennines, stopping off in small towns like Spoleto as you do so.

Urban retreat or rural escape?
Then think about whether you want to spend your time in towns and cities or exploring the countryside. If you want to spend most of your time in cities, you could visit:

  • Rome;
  • Venice;
  • Florence;
  • Pisa;
  • Milan.

But if you want to see more of the countryside, you may want to visit:

  • the lakes in the north of the country;
  • the Amalfi Coast;
  • the countryside of Sardinia;
  • the Apennines in Umbria.

Think about the cuisine you want to try
Italy is well known for having a different type of cuisine in every region and indeed every town. Although pizza and pasta are popular all over the country, you will find subtle variations wherever you go, and this is one of the things that makes travelling around Italy such a pleasure.

A few suggestions include:

  • Bologna, home of Bolognese sauce and the Tortellini;
  • Tuscany, famous for truffles, pecorino cheese and some of the best wine in Italy;
  • Sicily, famous for its Arabic influenced cuisine and couscous, as well as wines like Marsala.

Getting from place to place
You may be wondering how to get around when you book stays in multiple destinations. Fortunately, this is easy to do.

If you are travelling short distances between towns and cities, you will almost always be able to take a train. Alternatively, you may want to hire a car to enjoy more independence and travel at your own pace.

But you can also fly if the distances are longer. For example, if you would like to visit Sardinia, you can easily catch a flight from the mainland, and this is something you can arrange far in advance.

Choose the best way to see Italy
You really can see Italy any way you want to. It is the perfect holiday destination because there is so much to see without having to travel far, and every time you return the experience will be different.

Keep this information in mind when you book your holiday, and do get in touch if you would like any help coming up with an itinerary because that is what we do best!
