When you think about Italy, images of Rome’s Colosseum, elegant white statues, pizza, and gondola rides might come to mind. But, Italy has so much more to offer. Its incredible and positively indulgent experiences warrant more than one visit, of several days — even weeks each!You may have heard the old saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” and well…if you visit Rome, you’ll need much longer than a day to see all there is to see. Visit Musei Vaticani and the Sistine Chapel– try to visit in the early morning or after hours when it’s nearly empty. It’s a once-in-lifetime experience. Then, stroll on over to the Pantheon, one of the most magical places in Rome, according to our destination experts. Of course, no trip to Rome could be complete without seeing Ancient Rome — the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatinum, and Domus Aurea.Tuscany is filled with places to visit including Florence, where you’ll find its Academy of Art, the Uffici Gallery, and its beautiful Duomo. If you have time, take a day trip to Siena, a lovely renaissance city well-known for its central piazza, Il Campo (which happens it be featured in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.) You may have heard of Chianti, the region from which the wine is named — but this area has much to offer, not only for wine lovers. If you’re looking for something more off-the-beaten-path, visit Lucca, a charming city of cobblestone streets and historic cafes.Known for its bold, refined cuisine, the Emilia-Romagna region is perfect for foodies and wine lovers. Sample the region’s traditional foods like Erbazzone, a spinach quiche, or Pisarei e Faso, small dumplings with beans. Enjoy the freshest homemade pastas you’ll ever taste, including tortelloni, stuffed with fragrant herbs and tantalizing flavors. Stop in Bologna to try Mortadella, made of folded piadina bread and Parma to try its legendary Parmigiano cheeses. Unsurprisingly, fantastic wine is a given here.Don’t leave without seeing Venezia, one of the most unique, romantic cities you’ll ever visit. It’s look and feel is unlike any other place, and it’s the sort of place you don’t want to travel to without bringing your significant other along (or finding one there.) It’s the perfect city for you and your honey to get lost and fall in love.
