Visit the Papal Vatican City
Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world, so it is not really Italy. However, this state is located in Rome, and is therefore ideal for a day trip when you are in the Italian capital. The Vatican City has a lot of beautiful sights to offer for both followers of the Roman Catholic Church and people without or with a different religion. Let yourself for example be overwhelmed by St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.
Visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa
Although the city of Pisa itself is not very special, a photo at the leaning tower of Pisa should of course not be missed during a visit to Italy.
Admire the Amalfi Coast and Positano
The Amalfi Coast is the most beautiful part of Italian coast. One of the most beautiful towns on this coast is Positano. This colorful town is built against a cliff. Positano is also very popular among famous people, so the prices are quite a bit higher than you are used to in the rest of Italy.
Sicily is the island in the southwest of Italy, and is certainly a beautiful holiday destination. The island has phenomenal beaches, beautiful villages and of course the volcano Etna.
