Where to go in Italy on holiday

Are you trying to work out where to go on your Italian holiday? Although Italy is not a huge country, it has so much to offer that choosing a destination can be a challenge.

Of course, one option is to stay in two or more places on a multi-centre break like the ones we offer here at Bellarome.

Here are some suggestions you may want to consider when you start planning your holiday to Italy.

Choose a city or two
Italy's cities will all provide you with a unique experience. They are all completely different from each other, and many of them boast world-class attractions, so consider viewing a couple of our multi-centre holidays in Italy.

The four most famous cities in Italy include:

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

It would be a shame to visit Italy without spending a couple of nights in at least one city, so why don't you take your pick and make it one of the focal points of your trip? There is so much to see in each that you will never get bored. For example:

  • in Rome you can see historic attractions, like the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and St Peter's Basilica, and you can spend hours exploring the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel;
  • in Milan you can discover some of the best shopping in Europe, as well as famous art galleries like the Brera Art Gallery. You can also see 'The Last Supper' by Leonardo Da Vinci housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent, or visit La Scala Opera House;
  • Venice is not only one of the most romantic cities in the world, but it is also full of famous attractions like the Grand Canal and the San Marco Basilica;
  • Florence is an art lover's dream, and you can spend your whole time visiting galleries like the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery, as well as climbing the steps of the Duomo.

Go beyond the cities
Of course, the cities are just the start when you book your holiday in Italy. There are plenty of larger regions of the country to go exploring, so perhaps pick one of these regions and discover the highlights by basing yourself here for part of your holiday. Some of the best include:

  • Tuscany, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful regions of the country. Here you will find stunning countryside, decadent wine, like Chianti, history, culture and plenty of opportunities to relax;
  • Umbria, a small landlocked region where you will find stunning scenery and impressive mountains, is ideal for hiking. Try to visit some of its most beautiful towns, including Assisi, Spoleto and Perugia;
  • Abruzzo is an easy region to explore from Rome. You can discover the Adriatic Sea and its stunning beaches on one side, as well as mountains on the other. It's also ideal for skiing during the winter.

Of course, you could also head north to the lake region on the border with Switzerland. Here you will find the popular lakes of Lake Garda, Lake Como, Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore, among others.

Enjoy a good mix of Italy on your holiday
Whether you choose two cities, two regions or a mixture of both, try to enjoy a good mix when you visit Italy. The country has so many different areas to explore that it would be a shame to stick to just one place.
