Rome – the Seat of Power

Rome – the Seat of Power A list of Italian cities would be remiss without Rome in its primary ranking. The former capital of the Roman Empire is as glorious and romantic today, as it was at the height of its power. The capital and government seat is situated in the central region of Lazio, at the very heart of Italy. History and modernity meet resplendently in Rome, complementing each other like Michelangelo and Botticelli, the art of whom Rome is home to. Whether visiting God and Adam on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City or breathing in the bloodied grounds at the Coliseum where slaves and warriors were made to fight to the death, Rome is suffused with over 2,500 years of power, culture, philosophy and religion.


Venice – the Floating City

Venice – the Floating City A city that might soon be swallowed by the sea, Venice is a must-see before it’s been swept away from the Italian boot. Located in the northeast on the Adriatic Sea, Venice is a city floating on water, with canals and bridges, gondolas and fishermen. The archipelago consists of 118 islands, the Grand Canal separating the famed city into two. Venetian architecture is world renowned, and it’s best seen via gondola, alongside a loved one, floating through some of the most romantic and scenic waterways in all the world.


Milan – the Fashion Capital

Milan – the Fashion Capital During WWII, Milan was nearly obliterated by heavy bombing but has since been restored and reestablished as one of Europe’s wealthiest cities. Also known as one of the fashion capitals of the world, Milan’s center is replete with designer shops and fashionistas, as well as some of the most influential and innovative fashion design schools. Milan is also home to Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” which draws thousands of visitors to the city each year.


Florence – the Outdoor Museum

Florence – the Outdoor Museum The booming capital of Tuscany ranks fourth in the cities of Italy for its treasure trove of art and architecture. Often described as a huge outdoor museum, Florence showcases a number of masterpieces, both artistic and architectural, within its numerous museums, galleries, parks and churches. The Santa Maria del Fiore is one of the most famous cathedrals in Tuscany, and galleries, such as Pitti Palace and the Uffizi, are internationally renowned.


Cinque Terre – the Vibrant Villages

Cinque Terre – the Vibrant Villages Most who’ve researched travel to Italy will be familiar with the gorgeous cliffside villages that make up Cinque Terre. Translating to “Five Lands,” the five villages that comprise Cinque Terre are Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Vernazza, Manarola and Monterosso. These strikingly vibrant villages form the backdrop of some of the most stunning and colorful photographs you’ll take in Italy, as the little houses in the northwest coastal region of Liguria are built along the ragged cliff sides, descending steeply into the Mediterranean. The area is also known for its quality wine, as the wine terraces are centuries old.

Naples – the Tastiest Cuisine

Naples – the Tastiest Cuisine Located in southern Italy, Naples is the capital of the Campania region and is one of the busiest cities in Italy. As with nearly any other Italian city, in addition to great shopping, food and nightlife, Naples offers historical sites and famed art work by the museum-load. But the uniqueness of Naples lies in its cuisine. Many of Italy’s world famous foods originated in Naples, such as spaghetti, parmigiana and, of course, pizza. Being as such, the cuisine in Naples is unparalleled, often featuring freshly-picked locally-grown ingredients.


Genoa – the Hidden Gem

Genoa – the Hidden Gem Genoa lands itself on my list of Italian cities as a hidden gem in the quite overwhelmingly bejeweled boot. This classic city, with its pastel-colored buildings and terracotta roofs, is astonishingly picturesque in its place amid rolling green hills. The Baroque palaces, spectacular churches, hanging gardens and crumbling ruins add even more to the city’s scenic quality, as do the narrow, winding streets of its historic center.

All of these Italian cities are quintessentially Italian, yet have their own remarkable qualities. Each is packed with adventures and experiences to satisfy any traveler’s predilections. Do you have a favorite?
