10 Best Places to Visit in Italy – Travel Video

Located in Southern Europe, this boot-shaped
country is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations for a number of reasons
that include art treasures, trendy fashion, stunning landscapes, passionate people and
top-class cuisine. Italy offers so much to see and do that it
would take a lifetime to explore. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Italy: Number 10. Naples. One of the busiest metropolitan cities in
the country, Naples is the capital of the Campania region in Southern Italy. The city of Naples offers a treasure trove
of art works and historic sites as well as a vibrant atmosphere of shops, restaurants
and nightlife venues. Many favorite Italian foods originated from
here such as pizza, spaghetti and parmigiana. These dishes are taken seriously in Naples
and usually feature fresh, locally grown ingredients. As it is nearby famous sites like the Bay
of Naples and Pompeii, Naples presents an ideal base to stay while exploring the area. Number 9. Italian Lake District. The Italian Lake District stretches across
Northern Italy. The southern ends of most of the lakes are
relatively flat but the northern ends are mountainous as the lakes reach deep into the
Alps. Popular with tourists for over 100 years,
the Italian Lakes combine good weather with attractive scenery. Garda is the largest lake, and offers stunning
scenery, especially in its mountainous northern stretches. Como is equally stunning, with forested slopes
rising directly from the water’s edge. Further west, Maggiore is less popular yet
just as beautiful, with several popular family resorts. Number 8. Sicily. The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea,
Sicily is an autonomous region of Italy that also includes several smaller isles. It is separated from the mainland region of
Calabria by the 2 mile Straits of Messina. Home to every great Mediterranean civilization,
Sicily is rich in art and history; from Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples to Palermo’s Baroque
churches. The island’s most striking geological feature
is Mount Etna, Europe’s tallest active volcano. Number 7. Cinque Terre. Meaning “Five Lands,” Cinque Terre comprises
the five villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso and Corniglia. Located in Italy’s northwestern coastal
region of Liguria, the villages of Cinque Terre feature some of the country’s most
beautiful landscapes that include steep cliff sides and wine terraces dating back to hundreds
of years. Among its many gems, Cinque Terre boasts a
centuries-old complex of hiking paths that offer some of Italy’s most stunning coastal
views. The Blue Trail is a paved trail connecting
all five of the villages and is suitable for all ages. Number 6. Milan. Nearly destroyed from heavy bombing during
WWII, Milan has since reconstructed and now shines as one of the wealthiest cities in
Europe. Widely regarded as a mega fashion center teeming
in designer shops, Milan also attracts many to its surviving world famous treasures like
Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, The Last Supper, the La Scala Opera House, the Castello Sforzesco
and one of the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. Nonetheless, Milan sometimes appears less
Italian compared to the country’s predominantly historic cities and more of a glamorous city
with modern architecture. Number 5. Amalfi Coast. Situated in Italy’s southwestern region
of Campania, the Amalfi Coast is known for its extraordinary beauty that makes it one
of Italy’s top tourist destinations. Stretching 30 miles along the southern side
of the Sorrento Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast is prized for its picturesque coastline that
features shimmering bays, craggy cliffs, lemon tree gardens, multicolored villas and ritzy
resorts. One of the most romantic and posh towns along
the Amalfi Coast is Positano with its beautiful pebbled beaches, pastel houses and scenic
mountains. One of the larger towns, Amalfi, features
lovely plazas lined with restaurants while the town of Ravello is favored for its beautiful
villas of gardens and art works. Number 4. Pompeii. One of Italy’s most visited tourist destinations,
Pompeii is a famous Roman city which was buried under several feet of volcanic ash for nearly
1,700 years after the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Excavation of Pompeii began in 1748, and the
site is yet to be totally unearthed. The site is located near the modern city of
Naples. A tour of Pompeii offers a fascinating insight
into the everyday life of the ancient Roman world. Visitors can walk along the ancient streets
to see the remains of bakeries, brothels and baths. Number 3. Venice. One of the most beautiful destinations in
Europe, Venice is a unique city in that is built upon a lagoon surrounded by the Adriatic
Sea. Located in northeastern Italy, Venice is an
archipelago of 118 islands all connected by hundreds of beautiful bridges and scenic canals. Of the canals, the Grand Canal is most famous
and divides the city into two sections. Picturesque waterways and historic architecture
make Venice one of the most romantic cities in the world. Venice is often crowded but well worth visiting
to see its magnificent landmarks like Saint Mark’s Square and Basilica, Doge’s Palace
and Rialto Bridge. One of the most popular things to do is to
take a gondola ride along one of its many canals. Number 2. Tuscany. Italy’s most famous region, Tuscany conjures
images of beautiful rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees. The many pleasures of Tuscany include tasting
wine in Chianti, simply relaxing in hill towns such as San Gimignano or exploring Renaissance
art in Florence. The medieval city of Siena also holds excellent
works of art while its historic center is one of the most popular places to visit in
Italy. Elba, the largest of several Tuscan islands,
offers great beaches while Pisa is world-famous for its Leaning Tower. Number 1. Rome. Formerly the capital of the Roman Empire,
Rome today is the government seat and capital city of Italy. Located in the country’s central region
of Lazio, Rome is a vast and complex city that is both historic and modern at the same
time. Best known for housing ancient Roman structures
and the Vatican City, Rome has endured for more than 2,500 years as an important center
for culture, power and religion. From ancient romantic plazas to stunning cathedrals
and Renaissance architecture, there is so much to see and do in Rome, that it could
take months or even years to see it all.

  1. For me the best 10 CITIES in Italy are:
    10 GENOVA
    9 SIENA
    7 MILAN
    2 ROME
    1 NAPLES

  2. Sorry, but this best of is absolutely not good enough. First of all a few comments: 1) you canโ€™t put the whole sicily together, thereโ€™s thousands different turist destinations in the region, if you donโ€™t choose some of them why am i watching this? Is this a list of the best regions? That doesnโ€™t help much to plan a visit. 2) Milan? Really? I mean, Duomo and the Castello Sforzesco are great but the city is than only full of offices and shopping centers, definetly not wortwhile a top 10 things to see in the country that is best known for architecture, art, fold and folkloric culture. 3) Tuscany, same thing: you canโ€™t just list a whole region; make a choice, or the whole idea of this is pointless (beside, itโ€™s spelled โ€œSan Gimignanoโ€ and Pisa is only literally ONE square.. definetly not worthed a top ten list). Furthermore, you claim to be an expert of the country and you donโ€™t mencion less known heavens like Verona, Ravenna, the Gargano, Lecce, Matera, the Cilento, Sperlonga, Aquila and the natural parks of Abruzzo (breath taking!) and many others. Obviously you canโ€™t mencion them all… but this is not a โ€œbest ofโ€, is a list of the most well known places researched in 10 minutes on other thousands of websites with no effort at all to find what really is the best to see.

  3. Italy is such a beautiful country. I enjoyed touring it last November (2018). I went to Rome, Venice, Tuscanny (Florence, Sienna, Pisa). Already booked my flight back in March (2019), this time, I will visit Milan and Cinque Terre. I also plan to visit more of Italy (tentative date November 2019).

  4. Italy is my favourite European destination. I went to Naples, Sicily, Amalfi Coast (Salerno, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento), Pompeii, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Siena and Rome which I loved but I wasn't impressed with Milan tbh. I would like to see the Lake District when I go again. Capri Island is a very nice place to go and so is Sardinia. You can't beat Napoli-style pizzas – they are so delicious

  5. After traveling to USA, England, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Paris, Malaysia, China, Egypt, UAE, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Morocco, Maldives. Confidently I could say that Italy is the heaven on earth, it has everything warm people, great history, picturesque scenery and a sensational food. If youโ€™re planning to travel Italy is the destination โค๏ธ

  6. Beautiful country.โ˜๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜โ˜๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜๐Ÿ˜โ˜

  7. Wooow. Very beautiful and wonderful my love ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒทโค๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ•Š

  8. you should probably ask an italian how to pronounce the names of places in Italy because they were almost all wrong… butr I aprreciate the effort. but most of Italian food comes from Emilia Romagna… a great area to visit if you want to try real Italian food…

  9. Cinque terre WOOOOOOW I WERE THERE IT S FANTASTIC !!! !! It's true italy is more than wonderful !!! My best really best destination! ! VIVA ITALIA ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€!!! Tuscany , Rome and Venice are so magical too but my best souvenir is always : Cinque Terre ๐Ÿ’–!!

  10. I have visited several of those but I would do them all again and again. You can never tire of seeing Italy and the Amalfi coast is stunning.

  11. is Italy safe?/ I hear that many Africans and Muslims are illegally entering Italy which can be a HUGE problem with theives, homelessness and harrasments of tourists, I have seen it in France , and I will never go back. It is sad that Politicians and people in charge are allowing this to happen.

  12. Spaghetti werenโ€™t born in Naples. The origin of Spaghetti is uncertain, some say Marco Polo imported them to Italy from China other documents say they might be an Arab invention and testimonies of their presence were found near Palermo (Sicily) one hundred years before Marco Polo's adventure. What is certain is that Italians have made pasta famous all over the world for the way we have to cook this fantastic dish. But if you want to teach or simply tell something to people, at least be sure to first check the sources, please. Itโ€™s honorable to be willing to teach, but we have to tell the truth otherwise we spread ignorance. Thanks ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

  13. 3:50. โ€œSink Tereโ€?! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Lei รจ una grande gringa.

  18. Could someone explain me why Sardinia is never mentioned? It's by far the best island in the Mediterranean, no doubt about it. Likely best beaches in Europe, amazing landscape and countryside, woods, forest, desert, climbing, trekking, kayaking, history, food, culture.. It's such a shame no one talks about it. VISIT SARDINIA, no regret, trust me!

  19. Hey guys, come in Italy,.!! One of the most beautiful Country in The World!!

Thank you from Leonardo da Vinci, Dante Alighieri, Cristoforo Colombo, Caravaggio, Raffaello, Guglielmo Marconi, Giacomo Leopsrdi, Giuseppe Verdi and manies other Guys!! Ciao!!

  20. they didn't mention Lake Iseo which is a fantastic little Lake between Garda and Como. it's very close to Milan and it's unspoilt and extremely cheap!

  21. Omg I love and miss Italy soo much , I had my masters studies in the prestigious university of padova . Now the pressure in NYC makes me miss Italy so much but I will definitely go back . Ciaooo, viva italia โค๏ธ

  22. Vorrei dire una cosa: l'Italia รจ bella e non lamentatevi perchรฉ non รจ stata nominata la vostra regione/cittร  perchรฉ questo video dopo tutto รจ fatto da una persona Straniera

  23. People, I know nowdays Italy has a bad reputation in the world for governament and for the populist campaign.
    But not all italians are racists, not all italians are like salvini.
    We've always been a welcoming country, especially in the south of Italy.
    I'm proud to be Italian, my parents did a lotta sacrifices because they're immigrants.
    I'm proud to be born in this beautiful country( the best for me).

  24. Lโ€™Italia come tutti gli altri paesi sul Mar Mediteranno e un bel paese ma molto caro per quelli che lo abitano ,tra caselli e benzina si ha paura di uscire di casa e L โ€˜unico percorso e casa lavoro . Cibo molto caro ,spiagge care , autostrada cara ….

  25. Ci sarebbe molto di piรน da dire, andrebbero descritte le bellezze di ogni regione italiana ma all'estero menzionano sempre le solite cose. L'Italia รจ tutta bellissima!

  26. Vieni a italia e stai contenta I am from Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

  27. Ok , are you telling me that milan is better than the whole Sicily??? Is an industrial city! Sicily hosts thousands years of history, culture amazing landscapes and the best dishes at all

  28. COCO-NANDY went to Italy years and years ago. He loved the food, but the hardest part was learning a new language.

  29. Italy was amazing. We went to south Italy last year. Got some vids about cities, culture, food and basic stuff if you are curious about visiting south Italy.

  30. She said Sink tear for Cinque Terre … I mean seriously, they couldn't get someone to pronounce the name even half right?

    Here's an idea, just name the top 20 places to visit in Italy and just name every region. If you can name the whole island of Sicily you can name Sardegna as well.
