Want to plan a trip rounding up Italy’s greatest hits –– Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, and Venice?

Well, it just so happens that we’re in a pop-the-Prosecco mood, and we wanna celebrate these gorgeous cities with you this week.

Here’s the skinny: anyone can Google what to do, see and eat in any of these spots…

But we only serve up fresh-out-the-wood-fired-oven insider intel, because our experts live and breathe these cities.

In fact, some of them are probably sipping espresso on a jasmine-scented sidewalk in Rome right now or dipping into the sea in Riomaggiore.

So if you’re planning a trip to Italy and want the hot-focaccia tips from locals that love to live there, bookmark this post –– and look out for a special bonus that will help you plan your trip like a pro.


Even if you haven’t been to Rome yet, you just know it will be an incredible city. We’ve traveled a lot, and we still think it’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The Eternal City is a gorgeous mix of stylish and chic, rooted in ancient history but thriving in modernity. That’s why there’s always something for everyone in Rome –– whether you’re a history buff, art lover or foodie.


Florence is the kind of place that makes you fall in love with it, on repeat. In fact, if we only had Florence to visit every year, we’d probably find something new and romantic about it each time. Whether you’re strolling on Ponte Vecchio at sunset with your sweetie or pinching yourself taking in the city on a panoramic rooftop bar, Florence seeps into your freshly tanned skin in the best way. It’s small, friendly and gorgeous –– and an ideal first stop to introduce you to Italy.

The Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre is where we happily meander through one-way streets, drink home-brewed vino on stone steps at the marina and dive into crystal turquoise water. The Cinque Terre is made up of five main villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. They’re all connected by a short train ride. Most of our team is hunkered down here because it’s hard to give up sunset aperitivi with pastel pink hillside houses for neighbors!


Venice is teeny-weeny compared to Florence and Rome, but that’s why it’s so darn easy to explore. With canals instead of streets to boot! Venice is where you succumb to slightly cheesy gondola rides, get cozy with a glass of €2 wine on a quiet sidewalk, and eat cicchetti at taverns on repeat… All on a floating city. If you love fab festivals, fashion and bustling food markets, Venice is the gorgeously improbable place that has it all.

So –– you know where you gotta go and have an idea of a couple of things to see, eat and do in Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, and Venice.
