There is many things to be write but i will mention just some of the places and things that we were doing during are visit.
Land on the Venice Treviso airport with Wizz air place where we start our journey. From the airport to the center of Venice there is plenty of cabs, public buses and mini vans to transport you. After settle down in the hostel in the center of the city we start going around and exploring the city. Plazza San Marco or San Marco square is the central point in the city and everything is located there or near by. The Patriarchal Cathedral Basilica of Saint Mark is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice, northern Italy. It is the most famous of the city’s churches and one of the best known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture. Walking around the city and enjoying in driving with gondolas through the canals is something that you must do it when you are around.
Next stop for us was Milano , fashion center of the world and one of the most riches region in Italy. Home of two powerful clubs Inter and Milan and home of amazing fashion designers. Shopping around the city is one of the most used activities. But near by you can find some amazing mountain and great hiking trails if you want to enjoy in this kind of things.
From there we move to Rome capital of the country and once capital of a powerful kingdom.Rome is full with historical ruins like Colosseum place where gladiators were fighting till dead in the roman time. Vatikan the center of the Christianity is there.I love the aroma of freshly ground coffee that comes out of the cafes and sharing a carafe of local wine over lunch in a trattoria. I enjoy the gruff humour of the locals and the way they have an opinion on everything.
Naples, a big city in southern Italy, sits on the Bay of Naples near Mt. Vesuvius. Dating to the 2nd millennium B.C.E., it has centuries of important art and architecture. Its landmarks include Naples Cathedral, whose Chapel of San Gennaro is filled with frescoes and statues, and the lavish Royal Palace. Naples is also renowned for its distinctive style of thin-crust pizza.
Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is just off the toe of Italy’s boot. It has been a crossroads of cultures for 3,000 years, a history reflected in its diverse architecture, cuisine and ancient ruins. Palermo, the capital, offers colorful street life, bustling markets and Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mt. Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano.
