How I would See Italy

People always ask me, “What order would you see places in Italy?” All of Italy is great! You can not make a bad decision! Everyone that has been there has an opinion. This BLOG/VLOG is mine. I would see the famous big cities first because they are important. So the order would be:

  • Rome
  • Florence
  • Venice
  • Naples

But Milan, Siena, San Gimignano, Positano, Capri … are also important places to see.

The only rules I have are:

  1. Take your time in each place. Don’t rush and try to see all of Italy in a single trip. You will only see the inside of busses and trains.
  2. Sit at outside bars or trattorias and observe the people (non tourists) around you. Begin to understand Italian life.
  3. Try to communicate with locals.
  4. After the big cities, go to small resorts and mountain towns.
  5. Eat where the locals eat. DON’T EAT AT TOURISTY PLACES!
  6. Stay in small Italian hotels.
  7. Go on your own not with large tour groups. If you must use a group, keep it small.

Traveling to Italy is meant to be fun. So enjoy it! Watch our YouTube video below for more tips:

  1. Totally agree with you George. I much prefer to spend my time in the smaller towns with the locals, but the main cities are a definite must if you have not seen them before. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Grazie George. I so appreciate your input on visiting Italy and can start to plan my big trip in 2018. My sister n law and I where thinking about the beginning of September and staying for a little over a month. Looking forward to all your wonderful and useful information. Ciso, Diane George
    Believe it or not my husband and I are full Italian. Maiden name Pagnotta, mother’s maiden name Privano(Proviano)

    • That sounds like a great trip Diane. September is a wonderful month in most of Italy. Not to hot or cold. My videos on YouTube will give you some ideas of what to see.

  3. Very sound advice George. The biggest mistake tourists to Italy make is that they pack too many places in one visit: “Rome, Florence, Venice, Pompeii and since we’re here, let’s also do the Amalfi Coast” and on and on the list goes…
