    Forgot to mention that October is probably the best time of year to visit Italy. Weather is fabulous and the "busy" tourist season is over which means that prices will tend to be lower as well. Enjoy! about 7 years ago

    Haven't seen all of Italy, so I can't speak for all of it. However I' can vouch for alot of it. Up north you have Milan which to be honest I only landed in & transversed to get to Lake Garda. It has a famous Cathedral and of course is famous for its fashion designers and style. Further east is the city of Verona famous for its outdoor amphitheatre where they have outdoor operas, if you time it right reckon it would be worth taking one in. Further east again is the amazing city of Venice, a one off and entered by boat, it really is a must see. I haven't been to Tuscany with its famous cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa with it's leaning tower so I can't really talk for them but I'm sure you've heard of their great reputation.

    Further south you have Rome which should take up quite a bit of your time. Way further south you havve the city of Naples gateway to the archaeological ruins of Herculaneum and Pompei. It is overshadowed by the towering mass of the menancing Mount Vesuvius which is a dormant volcano, which when it blows it will really blow. It is worth a visit. Further south by the beautiful Sorrento Coast is the town of Sorrento, gateway to the beautiful island of Capri. If you have time to head further south by the even more stunning Amalfi coast to the town of Amalfi, all the better. Mind you both Sorrento and Amalfi are classed as towns, not cities so they may not be big enough for you.

    I personally think you will miss out on alot of the beauty of Italy by confining yourself to cities however if that's what you're into so be it. Perhaps a second trip might be in order to explore Italy's beautiful lakes, small towns, villages, mountains and countryside. about 7 years ago

    Italy is wonderful. Tips on Venice & Rome are at: http:TravelEater.wordpress.com. Taormina is pretty, but touristy. I think Capri and Amalfi are overrated. Cinque Terre is nice, if you avoid busy seasons. Portfino is gorgeous but very expensive. I would spend my time in the north - lots of good eating there!!! about 7 years ago
