What are the best places to visit in Italy?
While each of these iconic places deserve a week-long trip in itself, let's move bit further along the list and you may want to consider adding Sienna and Chianti region while visiting Tuscany region. And, if you few more days - take a detour to Lucca, Sarzana in Liguria region while you admire the leaning tower of Pisa during a coffee break.
If you are focused on the northern Italy, then it's hard to resist the visit to Lake Como region made famous by the lakeside villas owned by the celebrities, but then dont miss out on the charming towns around Lake Garda, the Amarone vineyards, Verona - the City of Romeo Juliet, and the Dolomites bordering the Swiss and Austrian Alps. The Formula one lovers are spoilt for choices with Ferrari, Pagani and Lamborghini factories around Modena and it's not a bad idea to spend few days in Milan if big brand shopping is your thing.
For the folks who have more time - we certainly recommend visiting Sicily, the largest Mediterranean island - and you will be suitably rewarded with some of the most pristine beaches in the southern coastline around Ragusa, ancient Greek history and the towns of Cefalu, Palermo, Catania and Syracuse. And, dont forget to go up Mt. Etna - the only active volcano system in Europe and the evening at Taormina - the celebrity hill resort of the island.
