ITALY CITY GUIDES

 
 

Rome

The magical Eternal City of Rome is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, with breathtaking wonders on almost every corner of every street. With a history stretching back nearly 3000 years and enigmatically intertwined with mythology and legend, this unique and wonderful place inspires and encapsulates all who visit.

Walk upon the very same cobblestones that Julius Caesar, Mark Antony and Cleopatra walked upon two millennia ago; throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain and imagine Anita Ekberg frolicking in Fellini’s classic La Dolce Vita; be awed by the immense Colosseum – now officially one of the Seven Wonders of the World; and of course, a visit to the Holy City of the Vatican, St Peter’s breathtaking Basilica and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel is an essential part of any itinerary.

The ornate and delicate architecture of Baroque and Renaissance Rome, the legendary seven hills that the city was built on, the vibrant, almost intoxicating air of Rome in the springtime, all combine to make this European capital one of the most unique, romantic, and inspiring cities in the world.

Milan

Milan is Italy’s capital of the north and one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan and trendy cities. Considered by almost everybody outside of Paris to be the world’s fashion headquarters, the cluster of streets known as the Golden Triangle is a minefield for the credit card trigger happy, while the region’s reputation for exquisite cuisine and very fine wine exceeds even Italian standards.

Home to not one but two of the world’s top football (soccer) teams, Internazionale and AC Milan (owned by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi), as well as two of Europe’s most prestigious Exhibition Centres, Fiera Milano and Fiera MilanoCity, Milano is indeed Italy’s financial, industrial and cultural capital.

The astounding Duomo di Milano is considered by many to be the cradle of Christianity in the western world and is the biggest church in Italy after St Peter’s (which is technically in the Vatican City). It’s impressive Gothic architecture makes it Milan’s most essential must-see landmark, along with Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

Florence

The tiny city of Firenze in the rolling and picturesque valleys of Tuscany is one of the most influential historical cities in the world. Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance, of Italian literature, of Italian language. The purest essence of Italy is to be found in this breathtaking city.

The birthplace of more historical figures than you could possibly shake a stick at, Florence has contributed innumerable sons to the papacy, given the world Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Dante and was the seat of power of the omnipotent Medici dynasty. Briefly the capital of Italy after reunification in 1871, this magical city is without doubt the spiritual heart of Italy.

Florence’s distinctive skyline is defined by the Brunelleschi’s great orange Duomo atop the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, while Ponte Vecchio is believed to be the oldest bridge in Europe – the original stone structure dating back to Etruscan times.

Venice

The fabulous floating city of Venice is one of the most remarkable, unique and beautiful places on Earth. Divided by a network of canals branching from the sublime Grand Canal that snakes through the city, Venice is surely the largest car-free city in the world.

Once a fearsome maritime republic, Venetians have traditionally been very wealthy merchants and in the bygone days of excess and grandeur of the 19th century, as Europe’s elite seemingly approached that ever evasive elixir of ultimate cultural enlightenment, this fascinating city was one of their essential destinations.

But while visitors to the city of Venice today marvel at such stunning architectural achievements as the Piazza San Marco, the Doge’s Palace, the Ca’ D’Oro and the Rialto Bridge, this city’s most wonderful and enduring symbol is doubtlessly the image of Gondolas, gracefully making their way around the enchanting canals with serenades rising into the balmy evening sky.
