When you think of visiting Italy, exciting cities will probably spring to mind before anywhere else, and that’s with good reason; they’re some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Rome is hailed as one of Europe’s most beautiful places, and many Mediterranean cruises include a day’s shore excursion here. Famous historical buildings, including the Colosseum, Pantheon and St Peters Basilica, pull millions of visitors in year after year. But Rome is also popular for its fine arts scene, and some of the most valuable masterpieces can be found in various sites around the city including those by Caravaggio, Raphael and Michelangelo.
The largest city in the region of Emilia-Romagna, Bologna is much quieter than its well-known counterparts. If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie, you won’t be disappointed here as it’s considered the food capital of Italy. Start with a delicious selection of local antipasti and then enjoy a bowl of Tagliatelle alla Bolognese; the original Spaghetti Bolognese!
There’s nothing quite like rolling green hills, lush forests and vast open plains; Italy’s interior is home to incredible scenery just waiting to be explored. The capital of Umbria, Perugia sits majestically in its stunning natural surroundings. Trek along one of the many trails in the park of imposing Mount Tezio, rent a bike and cycle along winding roads that are dotted with Cypress Trees, or simply sit back with a cool drink in the town and take in the incredible vistas. Stretching from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, the region of Abruzzo is a mix of wild and mountainous landscapes. There are trekking routes aplenty here, where you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with the local wildlife. Horse riding is also a popular activity, with hundreds of miles of scenic routes through the National Park of Gran Sasso.
Italy has some of the prettiest coastal areas anywhere in the world. From small fishing villages to resorts which sit high above the coastline, where will you explore on your next cruise? If you love peace and quiet, you’ll love Sant’Agnello. Nestled on a volcanic cliff near Naples, this peaceful town has narrow winding streets which are brimming with Italian history. Spend some time exploring the piazzas, churches and gardens and enjoy the incredible views of the Neopolitan Riviera.
One of Italy’s most famous resorts, Sorrento oozes with traditional Italian charm. Enjoy a coffee in a café on the quaint harbour, enjoy the views of Mount Vesuvius or visit the Church of St Francis which is one of the most beautiful in the town. The maze of cobbled streets also makes a great place to shop for souvenirs including handmade jewellery, cloths and leather goods.
