Italy is world famous for its cultural heritage and amazing food. However, such a diverse country deserves much more time than usual. This is why it is often better to visit Italy several times to experience the many different places and people it has to offer.
If you are going to try to see as many countries as possible in one trip, we would recommend this.
Start with Rome, which is the capital of Italy. It is a truly charming city with historic buildings and statues that surround you almost everywhere you go. Some highlights include the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and of course the Vatican. The Roman Forum is also definitely worth a visit.
From here you could head to Sorrento. It is a small town, but it will give you an understanding of “old” Italy and allow you to taste the wonderful Italian seafood and the famous Italian drink called Lemoenchello. One could then ascend to Florence, famous for its art and buildings. After Florence you need to drive to Pisa. This city not only has a sloping tower, and is definitely worth a walk. Another very famous and popular city – Venice. It’s an absolute must see and just stunning. One of the best ways to get to all of these places is to rent a car and drive a car. This will make the trip much more flexible and spontaneous and will relieve the need for deadlines.
Italy has become a very popular country to visit, especially for South Africans. There are two airports that have airlines that operate flights to Italy. It is Cape Town International and OR Tambo Airport. The main airline that operates these routes is SAA, but other airlines such as Virgin Atlantic and Air France also do so.
