has the power to hold a special place in your heart. Here are a few recommendations for

your magical trip to Italy.


Milan

Once upon a time, Milan was home to Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci, and more

illustrious artists this world has ever witnessed. An artwork by itself, Milan can keep an

artist on its toes by presenting an abundance of museums and palaces that are filled to the

brim with art that you can ponder upon for hours. Also, one of the fashion bases in the

world, Milan’s fashion district, Quadrilatero Della Moda is where a fashionista will find their

paradise. Milan is a whirlwind of designer boutiques that promise to take you on shopping

high.


Rome

If you have ever heard of the Renaissance, then you have heard of Rome. One of the most

important locations during the Renaissance, Rome is adorned with stunning cathedrals,

breathtaking architecture and an enthralling history. Rome envelops the exalted Vatican

City, along with a few other marvelous edifices including, the Colloseum and the Pantheon.

Being a powerful city throughout history, Rome still holds the government seat. But that’s

just one side of this multifarious city. Rome holds a romantic charm to it, attributing to its

deep roots in heritage and culture.


Naples

The city that gave the world its greatest gift, Pizza. Naples is known for its vibrant energy, be

it the artworks, people or food. With an enthusiastic heart, Naples is a city that has joy in its

very air. An explorer’s town, the charm of this place is best experienced on foot. Stroll

through the narrow streets to find hidden gems. Much like other Italian cities, Naples also

has a rich history and architecture, but with an exuberance unlike any other city. One can

also savor the majestic views of the legendary Mt Vesuvius, famous for destroying the city

of Pompeii in AD 79.


Venice

Famed as one of the most romantic cities of the world, Venice stands true to its praise. With

graceful canals acting as the veins of the city, one travels across in little gondolas that

enthrall you into a much simpler world. Built upon a lagoon, Venice is home to some of

Italy’s most historic architecture, including the Great Basilica of St Mark. A picturesque city

at its best, every corner of the city can be framed into a beautiful memory. While going

across in gondolas is the usual tourist thing to do, exploring this city on foot and getting lost

in its enchanting streets will make you fall in love with the city even more.


Vatican City

A treasure trove of iconic historical moments, Vatican City has etched itself as an ancient

city. The headquarter of Roman Catholic Church, it houses the Pope. The smallest country of

the world, Vatican City prides itself in its monarchy. Encircled within Italy with a 2-mile

border, the city just covers over 100 acres. Bask in the glory of the Sistine Chapel, shop

extravagantly at St Peter’s Square, dive deep into history of the Vatican Museum and revel

the grandeur of St Peter’s Basilica. Vatican City is flooded with tourists and booking a guided

tour in advance is highly recommended.


Italy is a copious country with richness and elegance deep rooted in the heart of it. The

cities hold a candle to an explorer’s heart. While it leaves you in awe of it, Italy also gets you

addicted to its way of life. Breathing in the Italian air will entrap you into visiting again,

because once is never enough and with due credit. Italy is considered to be one of the

world's most culturally and economically advanced countries, making it a tourist hotspot.
