5. Bologna

Home to the oldest university in the world founded in 1088, students still come here from all over the world making it a ‘young’ city in an old shell. Half swanky and half laid back. A real melting pot of Italy.

Poetry in ‘paddling’ motion. Escape the touristy side and wander through the San Polo and Dorsodouro neighborhoods, here is where the ‘real’ Venice lies.

7. Amalfi Coast

A sunseekers paradise. Grand villas perched on a rugged coastline, perfect beaches and pastel-coloured fishing villages. There’s even a nightclub where fish swim beneath a glass dance floor.

9. Tuscany

The views. Thats all you need to know. But if you want other reasons to go there then seeing Renaissance art, eating (the famous) Tuscan food, tasting the excellent local wines and a day at the beach in Viareggio are some top things to do.

10. Rome

The old Roman Empire influenced the World so much, it’s the reason why more than 20% of people in the world speak a Latin-based language. Rome is full of old roman landmarks which are open to the public. 

The most enigmatic is the Colisseum and the remains of the monuments of the old Roman City are spread in a small area, making it easy to visit.
