1. The Colorful Villages of Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre is a national park in the northwest of Italy. It is home to five colorful fishing villages and is incredibly picturesque. The area is great for hikers but can also easily be explored by train. Spend the night at one of the five romantic villages (see all hotels in Cinque Terre).
Drive over the rolling hills of Tuscany, along the vineyards, and cross the medieval villages. Tuscany might be Italy’s most beautiful and less-visited region. That’s why it is one of the things you must do in Italy. Trains in this region are very limited, and to really see Tuscany, renting a car, is the only way to go.
4. Sunset at the Duomo in Florence
Florence is a charming, relatively small city in Tuscany. The Duomo (cathedral) of Florence with the world’s largest dome, is an incredible masterpiece. Head up to a rooftop bar or stay at one of the hotels that have a rooftop view of the Duomo of Florence.
5. Relax in natural hot springs
Multiple levels of natural hot water springs are heated by a volcano. An unreal-looking natural appearance tucked away in the middle of Italy.

7. Taste Italy!
Italy is the country of food. Delicious kinds of pasta, pizzas, or gelato ice cream! Try to find the tiniest little shops and restaurants in the side alleys where not many tourists are; these usually have the best food.
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, and wars and has a well-deserved title of one of the Wonders of the World.
The doors open at 08:30 AM, but it is recommended to be early and avoid the crowd or join an organized tour so you can skip the line and learn more about this amazing monument.
Plan a visit during your 3-day Rome city trip. The Colosseum is located in the center of Rome and is easily accessible by the fantastic subway.
