Stunning Places to Visit in Italy

From cities full of art to breathtaking coastlines and magnificent landscapes, Italy packs thousands of stunning places to visit.

In this list, we talk about the most beautiful places you MUST visit when you go to Italy. Check them out!

Sorrento

Sorrento is a holiday resort perched on the Bay of Naples’ vibrant southern peninsula. It’s a historic hub that holds Baroque and Renaissance buildings.

Have your aperitivo at Piazza Tasso. Visit clifftop hotels with terrace bars, where you can marvel at the picturesque view.

If you come from Rome, hire a car in Sorrento to get around more easily.

Rome

You didn’t really visit Italy if you didn’t visit Rome.

Rome was the historical capital of much of Europe. Today, it’s one of Europe’s most vibrant cities and always on top of any must-visit-destinations list by tourists.

If you drop by Rome, make sure you visit the following:

  • The Colosseum
  • The Forum
  • The Pantheon
  • The Appian Way
  • The Palatine Hill

Enjoy Italy’s capital city and blend of culture, architecture, and romance.

Florence

If you want to experience Renaissance galore, Florence is the place to go. Among the landmarks of architecture here is the Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.

Explore half a dozen art museums showcasing paintings, sculptures, and other masterpieces that also decorate Florence’s churches.

Not sure Florence would satisfy your art cravings? Take it from UNESCO, which says 30% of the world’s most important works of art are in Florence.

Venice

A city made of water; boats for buses; gondoliers’ songs fill the air — Venice is truly a magical city, which is reason enough for tourists to come back again and again.

Once in Venice, go to the broad Piazza San Marco, St. Mark’s Square. The Great Basilica of St. Mark sits beside Doge’s Palace.

See the Gondolas at the end of the plaza in the Grand Canal. Look at the opposite direction and explore the narrow, winding passageways along with the gate under the clock tower.

Tuscan Hill Towns

Tuscany boasts towns that sit atop hills, where you can find castles and towers that still stand long after years of defending their positions.

Each of these towns packs its architecture, art, and stories. So, choosing which one to visit first might be challenging.

  • San Gimignano looks almost the same as it did during the Middle Ages.
  • Volterra served as a crucial Etruscan center before the Romans came.
  • Arezzo is a tourist attraction holding the legacies of artists that lived there.
  • Cortona is another Etruscan settlement that became a Roman town.

The Tuscan Hill Towns is also located near Pisa, Florence, and Siena, making it a top choice for tourists who want to hop around places.

Lake Como

And finally, the last one on this list is a body of water considered as Italy’s most beautiful lake. Lake Como offers a rich and stunning summer retreat.

Villas decorate the tightly clustered towns surrounding the lake. The Bellagio is artfully perched where the three arms of the lake meet.

To the west of Lake Como is Lake Maggiore, which also boasts its attractions, and to the east is Lake Garda, which is a favorite hub for summer sports enthusiasts.
