This is the capital city of Italy and is possibly the most well-known destinations in Italy. Boasting some of the most stunning architecture. Rome is a vast and complex city that is both historic and modern at the same time. I would say Rome is best known for religious monuments, Roman structures and the Vatican City.

There is so much to do in Rome that it would be safe to say that you won’t be able to see it all on your first visit.
The Italian lakes.
The Italian lakes stretch across the north of Italy. The lakes tend to be relatively flat in the southern region. Whereas the more north you go, the more mountainous the terrain gets as the lakes reach deep into The Alps. The lakes are popular with tourists. Mostly because of the stunning scenery and attractive weather. Lake Garda and Lake Como are the most well-known of the Italian lakes. You will find plenty to see and do around the Italian Lakes.

Venice is by far one of the most unique destinations in Italy and is a very popular place to go. Venice is built on a lagoon surrounded by the Adriatic Sea. Located in the northeastern part of Italy. Venice is in effect 118 islands all connected by hundreds of bridges and canals. There is the main Grand Canal that divides the city into two sections. If the waterways aren’t enough for you, then you won’t be disappointed with the amount of museums and things to see and do in this wonderful city.
Finally, no list would be complete without including one of Europe’s wealthiest cities. Milan, having nearly been destroyed in World War 2 is now an iconic fashion city.
