Naples is one of the largest and most lively cities in Italy but the city's main sites and attractions are condensed into the neighbourhood known as the Centro Storico (or Historic Centre), which is in fact a very small yet highly concentrated area. Naples is famed for being the birthplace of the pizza, so trying an authentic Neapolitan pizza is a must when visiting!
Rome, the Eternal City and the nation's capital, epitomises everything wonderful about Italy. The ancient, medieval and modern collide to form a vibrancy that is rooted in the past but points to the future. Key attractions in Rome include the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the assortment of museums.
The beautiful city of Venice needs no introduction. A watery city of art and artists, religious treasures and fine cuisine, Venice has charmed visitors from all over the world for centuries. Find yourself travelling down the Grand Canal in a gondola and walking around the labyrinth of streets, discovering quaint eateries and historic sites.
If you're after romance, a trip to Verona is a must: the famous setting for the most romantic story of all time, Romeo and Juliet. In this fair city you can walk in the "footsteps" of the star-crossed lovers, and visit both Juliet's balcony and her tomb. Verona also hosts an opera season throughout the summer, with performances held in the city's Roman amphitheatre.
Turin is ideally located near ski resorts in Italy, Switzerland and France, including the resorts of Courchevel, Verbier, Chamonix and Tignes. Which means, if you're thinking of staying in the city of Turin, then you won't be disappointed.
