7. Taste Italy!

Italy is the country of food. Delicious kinds of pasta, pizzas or gelato ice! Try to find the tiniest little shops and restaurants in the side alleys where not many tourists are, these usually have the best food.

8. Get lost in medieval Siena

While the majority of the tourists are visiting Rome and Venice, you should do a Tuscany road trip and visit Siena. The old city center is not accessible by car which makes it a great city to explore by foot.

9. Explore the Colosseum in Rome

An absolute must-do in Italy is visiting the world’s largest amphitheater. The Colosseum in Rome survived earthquakes, fires, wars and has a well-deserved title of one of the Wonders of the World.

  • Fun to see we almost did all the things you mentioned here. We were there in 2014 I think. My hidden Gem is Lucca, with his city walls. We were most impressed by this small town, mainly because of the great vibe. It’s a historic city, but at the same time with very nice shops :)

      Thanks for the tip! We will have to add that to our list for any future trips to Italy ❤️

  • Italy is much more than a road trip through Tuscany or visiting Florence…would be nice to see more special places than only the places everyone knows. :)

    • Salt in our Hair

      We agree! Hopefully we can have the opportunity to go back some day and see some places that are off the beaten track. Do you have any recommendations??
