    • Jim Barton recommended Cinque Terre
      A must see on anyone's list for a visit to Italy. Cinque Terra stands for "The Five Lands". They are all connected by train and walking routes. Each town is a sight to behold. I recommend walking to ... read more
      each town as the route has interesting points along the way. There is a second walking route but only for the adventurous. Great views if you do the latter but it will take you longer.

    • Il Duomo of Florence Piazza Duomo 17, Florence 50122 Italy

    • Liza Prado recommended Amalfi Coast
      The Amalfi Coast is a gorgeous stretch of coastline in southern Italy between Sorrento and Salerno. It is known for its small towns built (almost vertically) into the side of steep hillsides, its teal ... read more
      waters, tiny sand beaches, and one long curving road. It's gotten somewhat pricey over the years, but it's still a beautiful part of the world.

      Lauren Baker recommended Florence
      Gorgeous, historic city in the heart of Tuscany! This city was integral to the Renaissance, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that the art art and architecture are completely breathtaking.

      If you just have a short trip, and haven't been, Rome-Florence-Umbria would be a good trio.

      An art and history lovers paradise. The city of Rome is endlessly fascinating to visit. The food is outrageously delicious. The citizens of Rome like so many Italians are very friendly. Rome is one of ... read more

      I'd say Rome, Florence and Venice are tops, but hard to do in 10 days and still get a good feel for any of those places. Maybe you just want to do two.

      Julia P recommended Rome
      While I had the privilege of living in Rome for four years and getting to know it really well, I'd recommend it for a vacation anytime. The mix of amazing food and layers of history is truly unique. ... read more
      If you can, give yourself more than the standard 3 day highlights tour and start to explore the secret bits of Rome-catacombs, family-run trattorias, and strolls through the center, preferably late at night.

      Rome is, hands down, my favorite city in the world. If you are an art buff, you may find yourself stumbling upon a Bernini sculpture gracing some little piazza that is not even on your map. If you are ... read more
      a history buff, you have ancient rome through the renaissance. If you love food, the cuisine is out of this world. I could go on and on. Love it!

      Rome is a must-see! There's lot of history, art and good food to be experienced. Even if you are only there for a day or two, it's very much worth it!

      Julia P recommended Umbria
      Umbria is sometimes, well, okay, almost always, overlooked on the Rome-Venice-Florence Italy junket. This central region has the rolling hills of Tuscany, with some great wines, and none of the ... read more
      crowds. Medieval towns like Assisi and Spoleto are ridiculously charming, and the food is really amazing, from olive oil, to cured meats (go to Norcia) to zuppa di farro and strozzapreti pasta with wild boar sauce. Just watch out for the unsalted bread.

      In ten days, I'd do 2 big cities and a few days in the country. Umbria is like unspoiled Tuscany.

      Perhaps consider a trip to Corsica, which is technically French.

      Positano is a picture-perfect village on the Amalfi coast, with brightly colored houses clinging to the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Like all of Italy, it is a little touristic, but less ... read more

      Pompeii was much more amazing than I had expected. The ancient city itself is perfectly preserved, giving you a deep look back into the past - with painted murals, mosaics, perfectly preserved ... read more
      kitchens with pottery. They also have plaster casts of the people who were caught when the volcano exploded. You can see their actual looks of terror, mouths open, frozen in time. It leaves a deep impression.

      not quite a pleasure. Special climate and good air quality on island are good for people with lung problems. European Aristocrats have enjoyed this place for many centuries. Now island attracts a lot of tourist around the world. Prices aren’t cheap. They have unique lemons, they produce unique perfumes, and of course the best choice of amazing corals (Angel skin coral jewelry are the best)
