Italy is one of Europe’s most coveted countries for its stunning landscapes that stretch to its entire territory. The country is more of a powerhouse for tourist attractions, wine or places which are a fit for every traveler out for a luxury tour in Italy. From the top food regions in the world to towering volcanoes and designer boutiques, this list of the best places to visit in Italy not only covers the food and history of this diverse country but also art, scenic sites and hiking for active travelers.
- Venice- Is there any possibility to omit or even ignore romantic city of Venice in your Luxury Travel in Italy itinerary? Probably not, right? Such is the love affair of the travel aficionado with the city whose streets are made of water, whose buses are boats, and where the songs of gondoliers linger in the air. The city is a magical masterpiece in itself and the tourists always get enamored. Some of the biggest attractions within the city include the broad Piazza San Marco, St. Mark’s Square, surrounded by several of its top tourist attractions. The great Basilica of St. Mark stands beside the Doge’s Palace, and overlooking both is the tall Campanile. Gondolas can be seem swarming at the end of the plaza in the Grand Canal, and in the other direction, a gate under the clock tower leads into a well connected, winding passageways, where you’re sure to get lost on the way to Rialto Bridge. Being out of sorts for a while in Venice is not a trouble, rather it is a pleasure you would not regret simply because of the romantic vibes floating all over the city.
- Puglia- Make way to the Puglia’s ancient sites and unfussy charms, Italy’s most secluded coast. What’s more? You are also spared of the tourist-laden north. To look at its olive trees, whitewashed, hilltop towns, scorched earth and unforgiving heat, one might deem the region to be closer in look and feel to the melting pot of Greece than it is to the grandeur of Rome, although look carefully and you’ll find the landscape is stamped with many footprints – Byzantine, Arab, Balkan and Romanesque included. Thus you would get a glimpse of a short stint that Renaissance has had in southern Italy without any dominant hues of any particular culture.
Liguria– Pleasant and without extremes, Liguria is generally best known for the Cinque Terre, the string of five historic and colorful villages spaced along the region’s spectacular cliff-edged coast. As an added bonus, your luxury tour operator in Gurgaon could also add the lesser known quaint coastal towns such as Portovenere and Sestri Levante in the itinerary, and of course there’s Portofino, pretty as a paint box with its tall pastel houses cradling a harbour lined with bars and restaurants, and presided over by a pine-shaded castle. It still preserves the atmosphere of the fishing village it once was, and you can buy into its chic charm for an afternoon for the price of a bus ticket and a glass of wine.
