  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Their own travelers have a reputation as loud and somewhat obnoxious, but - having been an iconic travel destination since the days of the British aristocracy’s ‘Grand Tour’ - Italy itself is certainly no stranger to tourism. That’s hardly surprising, as it’s all but untouchable internationally in terms of art, food, lifestyle, romance, wine, and, of course, coffee (if you’re American, be prepared to be mocked viciously over the ‘Americano’ - in fact, try and avoid ordering one altogether).

    In capital Rome you’ll find abundant traces of the Roman Empire in the Colosseum and the countless crumbling monuments spread throughout the city. Vatican City, a tiny country within the city’s boundaries, inspires visitors with the art of the Sistine Chapel, the reverence of St Peters and the history of the Vatican Museums, as well as the harlequin colors and staunch demeanor of the famous Swiss Guard. Then there’s the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Imperial Forums, Piazza Navona…

    Romantics will find riding the rising waters of Venice and exploring its renaissance architecture an irresistible draw, stepping out of their hotel directly onto a curving longboat. So long as they avoid the increasingly common floods, that is. Florence, and its endless rows of red-roofed houses aren’t far behind. The nightly flirtatious promenade is enjoyable, as are the potent selection of coffee houses, but it’s the sensational selection of old-world art that keeps the city’s international tourist trade ticking over.

    Hiring a Vespa and heading out into the vineyards of the Italian countryside is another quintessential experience, perhaps finishing with a crawl up into the Alps and a gentle walk amongst the summer flowers and jangling cow bells, before heading to a hillside village to sample the world’s creamiest ice cream.

    In fact, there’s so much to see in Italy, you’d best book a whole summer. Once you’re finished soaking up the above – and wallowing in the beauty of the sing-song language - there’s always the wilds of Mediterranean Sardinia, the Tuscan vineyards, Milan with its fashion and its 2 famous football teams, Pompeii and its infamous volcano, one of the world’s most beautiful languages to play with.

    • Metropolitan City of Rome
      A city that was once the heart of the Roman Empire, and now contains an entire tiny country (and the center of Catholicism) within its borders, Rome doesn’t stop there: a mammoth artistic heritage, two of Europe’s biggest football teams and a penchant for high-class fashion are also just waiting to be uncovered.

      The Vatican is the place to start, where artwork and shapely architecture seems to appear round every corner. You won’t meet the Pope, but you can climb to the platforms of St Peter’s Basilica and explore the dusty archives of the astonishingly vast Vatican Museum. To get there you’ll walk the cobbled streets from the Tiber, passing old Roman houses before arriving amongst the expansive, symmetrical courtyard in which the Pope waves to the masses from a balcony after first being sworn in.

      Try a magnificent climb to the Cupola to see the perfect view of the St. Peter's Square. Roam down the underground Grotto to see the tombs of the Popes and other Roman royalties.

      Grab an ice cream, and head over to the sites the other side of the Tiber, which include the magnificent but crumbling Colosseum, the small but beautiful pools of the Trevi Fountain (take some small change to throw in), and the Roman grandeur of countless uncovered ruins and crumbling yet exquisite churches. Think ‘Angels and Demons’ on a far grander scale.

      It’s not all about history, though: Rome’s streets are coated with designer brands, while the residents shoot around the streets on stylish motorbikes, pausing only for super-strength coffee and to chomp on slices of perfectly made pizza straight from a window on a street corner. Sitting outside in any one of the many plazas and simply absorbing the vibe, cold beer in hand, is enough to feel at the heart of it.

      For the large part Rome is loud and brash, but every bit as charming and invigorating as its reputation would lead you to believe. Try to catch an evening soccer game at the magnificent Stadio Olimpico, or spend your days watching the abundant priests drift down crumbling cobbled streets in their swaying robes amongst nude statues, tiny fountains and perfectly formed buildings. Rome might no longer be the capital of the world, but it is an essential travel experience.

    • Vatican City
      Both a country within a city and a city within a country, the Catholic heartland of the Vatican lies entirely within the boundaries of ancient Rome, and is guarded by the heavily trained and garishly clad Swiss Guard. It’s also one of the countries least likely to ask you for your passport on entering, the smallest sovereign state in the world, and perhaps the country with the highest density of tourists compared to residents of any on earth.

      The independence of the Vatican is actually relatively new, established in 1929 in an agreement between Mussolini and the Pope which gave the Catholic leadership – at the time a newly landless elite – control of the area around St. Peter’s and the Sistine Chapel, as well as several un-adjoined sites around the city.

      Start by trying to find the point on the Piazza where you can see only one row of columns all around you (there are in fact five), before climbing the steps to St. Peter’s, comfortably the largest basilica in the world, and coated with art and monuments painted by the Italian greats, including Michelangelo. Saunter up the dome, and you can stare down over a mighty city panorama, or dip below the high alter on a tour and explore the relics hidden deep below.

      The Sistine Chapel – the spot where a new Pope is elected that then becomes his private chapel – is home to more masterpieces from Michelangelo and Boticelli, as well as a sensational assortment of 15th century frescoes, while the Vatican Museum is a selection of treasures gifted to the church, and includes exhibits from Greece and Egypt alongside a startling range of significant Roman art. You could easily wile away hours here; the Vatican on the whole is a simply incredible artistic heartland.

      This particular country can be accessed by local bus or subway from the more touristy parts of Rome, and it’s also a massive part of the charm of Italy’s capital. You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the majesty of a destination like this, which resonates with feeling at every turn and stuns with its architecture and art.
