Start the adventure in Rome, in one of famous city in Europe. Then, visit the charming city of Florence housing famous art galleries, then, visit wonderful Bologna and Ravenna, then head to Venice known for its canals dotted with charming gondolas, sun-kissed architecture. You’d be hard-pressed to escape the atmosphere of love that suffuses this city.

Rome

Rome has been around for almost three thousand years and yet carries all that weight of history with a dolce vita lightness of heart. It’s a city that combines the intimacy and human scale of a village with the cultural draws of a historic, art-laden European metropolis.

Classical ruins and early Christian places of worship stand next to – or sometimes lie beneath – Renaissance palazzos and Baroque fountains. But there are also great neighbourhood trattorias, quirky shops and a buzzing aperitive scene.

The golden rule for visitors? Don’t try to cram too much in. Rome moves at a slower pace than many northern cities, and to enjoy it you should take time out in pavement cafés as well as ticking off all the big cultural draws.

When faced with a holiday destination as big and as iconic as Rome, it's hard to know where to begin - so why not let us guide you through the crème de la crème of the city’s sights! These sights include the Colosseum, St Peter’s Basilica, Palatino and the Roman Fanfare.

Busy though they may be, you will enjoy an unforgettable experience when spending a morning or afternoon walking in the footsteps of the Romans, the world’s most famous artists, Popes and figures from hundreds of years of Italian history.

Rome, Palazzo Colonna

In heart of Rome, A few steps from Piazza Venezia, Palazzo Colonna offers the visitor one of the most magnificent testimonies of the Roman baroque.

La Gallery Column and its salons are in fact one of the wonders of Rome and are the setting for an impressive collection of works of art: paintings, sculptures and furnishings from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century.

If you are looking for a properly Rome lunch experience?...

Trastevere is perfect place for that!

The aforementioned landmarks need no fanfare and little selling before you will find yourself being carried towards them alongside a wave of other tourists.

Florence

Florence is a treasure trove of art and architecture, with numerous museums and galleries. Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, the Tuscan capital is sprinkled with terracotta and ancient Carrara marble, as well as grand buildings and monuments that proudly stake their claim for admiration.

Boasting vast iron and glass structure, Piazza San Lorenzo is one of the most authentic covered market places in Florence, with fruit and veg stalls, Tuscan trinket sellers, and historic restaurants.

Masterpieces of modern fashion come in plenty on Florence’s hip Via dei Calzaiuoli and Via de Tornabuoni, which boast high-end boutiques, filled with haute couture pieces.

After long days of traditional dining and market strolling, visitors can head to the Piazza Michelangelo for sunset shots, live music and Italian atmosphere at its finest.

Friendly local people are warmly greeting tourists from dozen countries and sometimes making a tiny, funny mistakes in tourist's languages...:-)

Next stop:

Bologna

Fusing haughty elegance with down-to-earth grit in one beautifully colonnaded medieval grid, Bologna is a city of two intriguing halves. One side is a hard-working, high-tech city located in the super-rich Po valley where suave opera-goers waltz out of regal theatres and into some of the nation's finest restaurants.

The other is a bolshie, politically edgy city that hosts the world's oldest university and is famous for its graffiti-embellished piazzas filled with mildly inebriated students swapping Gothic fashion tips.

No small wonder Bologna has earned so many historical monikers. La Grassa, the fat one, celebrates a rich food legacy, ragù or bolognese sauce was first concocted here.

Throughout history, Bologna has served as a major cultural and economical hub in Italy and has been ruled by the Etruscans, Celts and Romans respectively. As a major university city and its long history, Bologna has a wonderful array of cultural sights, fantastic architecture and high quality museums.

Piazza Santo Stefano, an elegant broad square that’s perfect for a coffee stop after all those stairs. Well worth a visit is the Basilica Santuario Santo Stefano – a complex of seven churches from different ages founded by Bishop Petronius in the fifth century on the site of the ruins of an ancient temple to the goddess Isis.

Bologna is famed for its extensive Portico – A Portico is essentially a partially enclosed walkway that is lined with arches and columns. There are numerous different porticos scattered around the city but the most famous are the Bonaccorsi Arch and the walkway leading to the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca.

Walk through the porticos and admire the wonderful ancient architecture...

Venice

Known as the City of Water, Venice is the quintessential couple’s retreat - a city steeped in history and split by the flowing ribbons of myriad canals.

Even if you refrain from riding gondolas among the romantic, sun-kissed architecture, you’d be hard-pressed to escape the atmosphere of love that suffuses this city.

Tourists shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the Doge’s Palace, a symbol of the republic’s wealth and mastery over land and sea.

Throughout the cobbled streets, there are countless shops where travelers can pick out unique handmade masks painted according to the 800-year-old Venetian tradition.

How to Visit Venice on a Low Budget

The Olympic theatre in Vicenza, Italy

To talk about Venice means to say the same sorts of things over and over again. The unique city has inspired writers for generations, but it’s hard these days to say anything about Venice that hasn’t already been said...

One of the bits of advice that is often repeated, is that when you’re in Venice it’s important to get lost. Which sounds like weird advice, do not you think?

"I have, on more than one occasion, thought that if I ever wanted to lose our self entirely for short time that we would go to Venice. To have this feeling that I could forget my name there, and that it wouldn’t bother me..."(Victoria, Travel Dream Club)

It’s a seductive thing, getting lost in Venice...

If you’re pretending there’s no map for Venice, another good way to get truly lost in the city is to pretend there’s no guidebook. Or, if you’re trying extra-hard to lose the crowds, to deliberately avoid any place listed in the guidebook.

In general, however, if you approach Venice as an explorer might then everything has the potential to be wonderful, whether it’s on someone else’s “must-see” list or not.

Just you will lost in love in Venice...

"To see splendor of Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go....." - Truman Capote

During the Middle Ages, Bergamo served as the seat of the Lombard Duchies and became a city of immense wealth due to the vast treasures stored there. As an independent city, Bergamo was part of the Lombard League and raised armies to fight against Frederick I Barbarossa in the 12th century. During the 19th century, the city actually became part of the Austrian Empire before integrating into the Kingdom of Italy.

Turin

Turin actually served as the first capital of Italy and has been a major cultural and economic centre for the country for many years. Located in the north westerly part of Italy, Turin is the capital of the Piedmont region and sits on the river Po.

As with many regions of Italy, Turin saw Roman activity and a military camp was held here. Once the Roman Empire had collapsed in Western Europe, Turin was occupied by various different nations and empires subsequently. During the 1300-1600’s the city saw great growth and gained much of its fantastic architecture and cultural buildings during this period.

There's a whiff of Paris in Turin's elegant tree-lined boulevards and echoes of Vienna in its stately art-nouveau cafes, but make no mistake – this elegant, Alp-fringed city is utterly self-possessed. The industrious Torinese gave the world its first saleable hard chocolate and Italy's most iconic car, the Fiat.

An authentic passion that has created specialities now known throughout the world has also continued to stimulate the imaginations of the master chocolates over the centuries. Indeed, it was here in the Savoy Capital that the Bicerin – a glass of hot coffee, cacao, and milk cream – was conceived in the 1700s.

By way of chocolate, the maestros of Turin knew exactly how to express their taste for innovation, so much so that they experimented with new mechanisms to mix cacao, vanilla, water and sugar into a malleable paste in the beginning 17th Century.
