Italy

Italian Fun Facts!

  • Vatican City, in Rome, is the smallest country in the world.

 

  • Pizza was "invented" in Naples around 1860s.

 

  • Italy is said to have more masterpieces per square mile than any other country in the world.

 

  • Almost four-fifths of Italy is either mountainous or hilly.

 

  • When McDonald's opened in 1986 in Rome, food purists outside the restaurant gave away free spaghetti to remind people of their culinary heritage.

 

  • The highest peak in Europe is in Italy. Monte Bianco (White Mountain) is 15,771 feet high and is part of the Alps.

 

  • The author of “Pinocchio” (“pine nut”), Carlo Collodi (1826-1890), was Italian.

Italy

A place for romance, fashion, cuisine, and history. Discover eternal Rome, the renaissance of Florence, cosmopolitan Milan and romantic Venice. Leave the city behind and traverse the Italian countryside. Visit small inns, village churches and unforgettable restaurants along the way as you travel to famous towns such as Verona, Como, Siena, and Sorrento. Savor Italy's varied countryside as you wind through olive groves and wine vineyards to the scenic Italian lakes or the dramatic southern coast of Naples.

 

The best time to travel to Italy is in the spring and fall. The weather is beautiful and not muggy and not normally as crowed as other seasons.

 

Rome

Rome has so many amazing sites to see: from the Colosseum to the Vatican, the Roman Forum to the Spanish Steps. Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, shop ‘til you drop and Mangia! Mangia! Mangia! (EAT!)

 

When it comes to eating, Rome is the place to be. Whether it’s sitting in an outdoor café enjoying homemade pasta, enjoying a glass of wine, or exploring the city with gelato in hand. Italians usually won’t eat dinner until after 7pm. Any earlier than that and you’ll be dining with fellow tourists.

 

Rome is a city for walkers but don’t be afraid to try their metro system. It’s simple with only 2 lines (A & B) and it’ll save your feet for Florence. If you want to take a taxi, make sure you go to a taxi stand because it is illegal to hail a taxi.

 

Florence

Florence’s old world charm will keep you coming back for more. It’s easy to get around on foot because the majority of their sites are in the historical city center. Enjoy the ornate rooms of the Pitti Palace, wander the manicured lawns of the Boboli Gardens, check out Dante’s Death Mask at the Palazzo Vecchio, and climb to the top of the Duomo for some spectacular views!

 

Mercato Centrale is Florence’s main food market. Sensory overload at its finest! Florence is also known for their leather but make sure you are purchasing the real deal and not a knock off from China.

 

To explore the countryside, check the train and bus schedules. There are lots of great day trips within easy reach with Florence as your basecamp.

 

Venice

Ahhhhh Venice! It’s as if time stands still in this city. It is a labyrinth of alleys and canals. The key to Venice is summed up in one word: wander. There are no cars in Venice so pick a direction and wander the back streets. You might hit a dead end and have to turn around but that is when you stumble across the best cafes and shops. Don’t be in a hurry in this city. There is so much to explore from Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, the Grand Canal and even the sister islands of Murano and Burano for some hand-blown glass and Venetian lace.

 

In Venice, the “bus” is the Vaporetto (water bus). There are stops all along the canal. It’s a great way to see the sites as well as get you from point to point. If you want to take a Gondola, either book ahead or negotiate a rate before boarding.
