Italy has always been a favorite place to travel, but where in Italy should you go? There are so many different cities, attractions, and areas to see within the country, it’s hard to know what to choose, or where to stay.

Gondola Rides
Gondola rides could seem like a tourist trap, but don’t get fooled by the high price, it’s something to invest in. There’s nothing like an hour long ride through the enchanting small canals of Venice. Make sure to not miss any landmarks by staying at Hotel Concordia, situated on St. Mark’s Square with views of the Basilica and in the center of the city.

Wine Tasting
There’s nothing better than wine tasting in Italy. Book a wine tasting tour in Tuscany to experience some of the most beautiful vineyards in the world. You will get to taste Chianti Classico and many other authentic Italian wines. To make your trip truly unique, stay at Palazzo Magnani Feroni, selected by TripAdvisor as one of the “Top 10 Magical Palaces in the World.” Formerly a Renaissance-era family home, Palazzo Magnani Feroni will have you feeling like royalty.

The Colosseum
This historic amphitheater lies directly in the center of Rome and is the largest amphitheater ever built. The Colosseum holds history from the gladiatorial contests in Roman times. As you may think, this is one of the biggest attractions in Rome, but when in Rome, you must do as the Romans do. This also means living amongst history and culture, aspects easily found at the Rose Garden Palace, conveniently located within walking distance of the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.

Valle delle Ferriere
Most people go to the Amalfi Coast to experience the sandy beaches, but what most people don’t know about it is the gorgeous hiking trails. This area of Amalfi Coast is a nature reserve that holds the ruins of old mills and ironworks, along with enormous waterfalls. Make sure not to miss out on the beautiful countryside while staying at Grand Hotel La Favorita, located in Sorrento.

Villa del Balbianello
Built in the late 16th century, this spectacular garden contains immense beauty and Roman antiques. It features exclusive flowers and trees that make for a spectacular, peaceful garden. Take a day tour on a special boat that leads you to this garden; you won’t be disappointed. To extend the absolute peace and beauty of Lake Como, make sure to stay at Grand Hotel Imperiale Resort, located in Moltrasio.
