So, take to the streets, put your explorers’ hat on and make sure your walking boots are secure as sightseeing in Italian cities is second to none.

Italy In A Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 
  • With so much to do and see in Rome, narrowing it down to a few absolute-musts is a necessity. A culture fix awaits as you walk around the ruins of the Colosseum, make a wish at the Trevi Fountain and take a tour of the majestic Vatican City.
     
  • When in Milan, be sure to visit Duomo di Milano. The most magical cathedral you’ll ever lay eyes on, this popular tourist attraction is seen as an artistic monument as well as a spiritual site of prayer. The cathedral is one of the largest in Europe and is the mother Church of the Diocese.
     
  • Experience fine dining in Florence with an evening meal at the delectable La Bottega del Buon Caffe. Serving Italian and Mediterranean cuisine as well as vegetarian-friendly dishes, visitors are certainly in for a treat of the senses. This Michelin-starred eatery is the perfect destination for those celebrating a special occasion or simply wanting to try something new.
     
  • Palazzo Petrucci Ristorante in Naples shouldn’t be missed out on. Exceptionally exquisite, diners will tuck in to tasty Italian fare while admiring views of Vesuvius from across the bay. We recommend ordering from the á la carte tasting menu for a sample of multiple delightful plates that will send you dizzy with pleasure.
     
  • Known for its famous canals, don’t be mistaken that the only way to travel by water in Venice is aboard a gondola. Take the reins with a kayak tour of Venice where visitors hop in a regular or pedal-powered boat and paddle along the Grand Canal or the Venetian Lagoon. You’ll pass iconic landmarks during this scenic excursion, making this the perfect activity for both sightseers and adventure seekers.
     
  • Calling all motor-heads! Take a ride on the wild side as you test drive a Ferrari in Florence. Cruise through the legendary Italian streets in one of the world’s most luxurious sports cars and feel like your very own episode of Top Gear.
