How to Explore Italy in 3 Different Ways

How to Explore Italy in 3 Different Ways

Do you want to know why Italy is an ever-present destination on the list of places that most people would like to visit? Travel to Italy and you will understand why a lot of travellers fall in love with the country. Below are three of the best ways that you can enjoy the wonderful country:

City Break in Rome

When talking about Italy as a holiday destination, for sure, most people would instantly think of Rome, especially devout Catholics. It is not just the capital of Italy, but also the capital of the old Roman Empire, which provides plenty of opportunities to explore its rich history through its numerus attractions and iconic landmarks such as the historic coliseum.

One of the most popular sites to visit in Rome is the Vatican City, where you can see the basilica of St. Peter. Make sure to be there early as it gets crowded as it gets late, especially during peak season. The Pantheon, Colosseum, St. Peter’s Square, and Navona Square should not also be missed, which are all included in the 45 UNESCO heritage sites that are found in Italy. The best way to ensure that you don’t miss any of the delights that Rome has to offer is by booking with a Rome tours specialist. Aside from being a feast for the eyes, it is also a feast for the appetite as you sample some of its infamous dishes like spaghetti alla carbonara, Carciofi and baccala.

Drive the Amalfi Coast

Although Amalfi Coast has unusual roads, it offers one of the most scenic drives in the country. This is the perfect choice for people who like road trips or for fans of long drives. Time, however, will pass by almost unnoticed because of the beauty that unfolds right in front of your eyes, a charming sight that you might not see when driving in any other roads.

Driving all the way to the Amalfi Coast, locally known as Costiera Amalfitana, will be all worth it once you are confronted with the view of colourful villages on the hillside, turquoise waters, green mountains, and lavish gardens. According to UNESCO, the Amalfi Coast is the perfect example of Mediterranean landscape with exceptional appearance and rich culture. While it is without a doubt beautiful, keep in mind that the drive can be challenging. Make sure to come fully prepared to avoid any untoward incidents that can ruin your holiday.

Golf Holiday in Sicily

Although it is not as popular as Rome for an Italian holiday, Sicily holds a lot of promise. As a melting pot of cultures, you can experience diversity in this destination. A combination of the old and the new can also be reflected in their architecture. If you love playing golf, Sicily is one place that should not be missed when embarking on a golf holiday in Italy.
