Italy – things to do and places to go
Italy can be divided into several distinct regions, each featuring their own distinctive landmarks, culture and way of life. Let’s begin in the north of the country
Much of the most dramatic mountain scenery lies within the smaller northern regions. In the far northwest, the tiny bilingual region of Valle d’Aosta is home to some of the country’s most frequented ski resorts, and is bordered by the tallest of the Alps, the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. In the northeast, Trentino Alto Adige is another bilingual region and one in which the national boundary marks the beginning of the Dolomites mountain range, where Italy’s largest national park, the Stelvio, lies amid some of the country’s most memorable landscapes. If you thought the northwest of Italy was full of interesting things to see and do, then you’ll be amazed to hear about the northeast! There are many interesting facets to this region including the Dolomite mountains and the ski resorts at Cortina d’Ampezzo
, beautiful cities such as Verona
, capitals of cuisine such as Bologna
` and of course – Venice
! There’s enough in this region to keep you occupied for days. We’re sure you’ll be amazed by the beautiful canals of Venice and the food available in Bologna is among the best you’ll find in Italy!
Central Italy is where you’ll find its capital – Rome
. Rome is without a doubt Italy’s most famous and beautiful reaction and the city is a living and breathing museum with history on every corner. Wonders of the Roman Empire can be seen on every corner and the Trevi Fountain
is a particularly staggering piece of design and so is the world famous Coliseum
. Renting an apartment in Tuscany, you’ll be within reach the renaissance city of Florence
with its spectacular Duomo
, to its east lies the leaning Tower of Pisa
The Sicilian Stronghold
The fifth region of Italy is the large Island of Sicily
which sits off the southern coast of Italy. The island is famous for its beautiful architecture, vast stretches of exquisite coastline and great cuisine. Many people are drawn to the rugged beauty of the island and Sicilian wine in particular keeps people coming back year after year!
Take a trip to Sardinia
Lying 250km west of Italy is the tranquil island of Sardinia
. It’s a popular destination for holiday makers and the island offers great swimming, yachting, camping and windsurfing opportunities. The beaches are perhaps the island’s greatest asset and you’ll find some of Italy’s best beaches! Choose your vacation rental in Sardinia in close proximity to the beach, where you can enjoy a morning swim or rent a studio with a pool in Sardinia to enjoy privacy and bask in the summer heat. There’s always the chance that you’ll stumble across your own deserted beach that you can enjoy all for yourself! Wimdu recommends renting an accommodation with a pool near the beaches of Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritze.
The further south you head in Italy, the more rural and agricultural the landscape becomes. Nestled in this beautiful and often hilly landscape are several of Italy’s best loved attractions. Naples is a vibrant and busy town worth exploring, as is the ruined city of Pompeii
which stands in stark contrast to Naples
. There are many miles of beautiful, unspoilt beaches throughout the south of Italy such as at the romantic Amalfi Coast
. It might be Italy’s least visited region but it’s gaining popularity as word spreads of its magnificent beauty, peaceful way of life and great eating options.
Italy is easily navigable by train, bus, car and ferry and services are efficient and cheap. There are also plenty of domestic air services on offer so you will never be too far from your apartment or villa. Wimdu offers accommodation and vacation rentals in all of Italy’s major cities including Rome
, which are all easily accessible to local airports. Getting around the country is straightforward thanks to a well-developed rail network and good roads. We recommend you take public transport between large cities and use a car only for country drives, allowing you to choose exactly where you go and allow you to explore and discover interesting corners of this magical Landscape.
