Italy, the country with the most world cultural heritage in the world, is also one of the main birthplaces of Western civilization.
It has been exaggeratedly said that the human history of all other European countries combined is not as good as that of Italy, after all, the Italians were glorious when the rest of Europe was still in a very backward era.
As the most popular destination in Europe, in this country, there is a moment of the illustrious ancient Roman Empire, there is a sudden eruption of the volcano buried overnight Pompeii, there is a beautiful water city of Venice, “the giant of the fashion industry” called Milan, and the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, as well as known as The ancient Roman Colosseum, known as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”.
1. How long does Italy usually take?
Italy has a lot of cities from north to south, 11-13 days is a suitable length, you will not feel that changing cities every 2-3 days will be too tiring, nor will you be aesthetically tired because of too long arrangements in one place.
Of course, if you want to explore some towns in-depth, the number of days can be extended.
2. Where to go in Italy?
For those who are going to Italy for the first time, I would recommend visiting the classic cities: Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Florence, Venice, Milan.
These cities are very mature tourist cities, with relatively abundant hotel resources, convenient inter-city, and intra-city transportation, and many English-speaking waiters at attractions, hotels, and restaurants, making it relatively easy to visit.
Rome is the capital of Italy, and I know it not from “all roads lead to Rome”, but from the world-famous movie “Roman Holiday”, especially from Hepburn’s words at the end
“I will cherish my visit here in memory, as long as I live.
I will cherish my visit here in memory, as long as I live.
If there was a color to describe Florence, it would probably be red, when overlooking the city with its red roofs, not that intense red, but just right to fill the whole city. Florence is not big, but it is full of famous monuments, full of heavy history; it is the origin of the Renaissance, the home of Machiavelli, Michelangelo and the Medici family, an unforgettable city.
There are few who want to use the name of Venice to promote their city, but even if there are many styles, none of them can replicate the beauty of Venice, because Venice is the only Venice.
Its charm flows in every canal, shuttle in every bridge, jumping in the melody of the melodious boat song, infecting everything in the city.
As Italy’s most developed city and the capital of fashion and design, Milan has a more modern feel, but there is no shortage of famous sights to visit。
Milan Cathedral， Italy’s famous Catholic church is also one of the most magnificent churches in the world.
The biggest attraction of this church is its front decoration with 135 spires and 3,200 sculptures, which is as eye-catching as the crown on the head of a fairy in a fairy tale, with such luxurious details that it is enough to make you feel shocked.
