Trying to pick the best places to visit in Italy is like being forced to choose your favorite nonna.
It can’t be done, because they can both whip up a mean risotto.
There’s no such thing as “the number one best place to visit in Italy.”
Every spot is steeped in its own special ragu sauce, and calls a different traveler to each place.
Those top 10 lists that rank the best places in Italy are doing it wrong.
What we can do instead: show you our faves (no rankings), and give you the insider intel on exactly when to go, (and when to skip).
Curious about Southern Italy?
If you’ve traveled through all that’s north of the boot already, you’re probably ready for something new.
Something different from the usual suspects. Venice, Florence, Milan – you’ve been there, done that.
Waist deep in Google searches for Northern Italy?
Sweet, so glad you’re here.
Northern Italy is everything on the map above Rome. You should visit, ‘cause the cities are alluringly ancient and the villages are works of art.
We get that it’s overwhelming to digest, and you just want to know exactly what to do. You’re totally over barebones info you’re skimming on the web.
We’ll guess that Florence, Milan and Venice made most lists (they’re on ours, too) — but we know that you’re still not sure which ones are worth seeing.
