The most beautiful destinations in Italy for any kind of vacation – pizza, sea, wine and culture

Italy, oh Italy – the country offers the best conditions for a sunny vacation in the Mediterranean: wonderful beaches, spectacular natural wonders, the most beautiful Italian villages and much more. Variety can make it difficult to plan your next trip. That’s why here are the top nine travel destinations in Italy for any type of vacation.

For pizza and grocery lovers: Naples

It is eaten all over the world, but nowhere does it taste as good as here – Napoli pizza. For centuries, restaurants in the southern Italian city have struggled over who makes the best pizza napoleon. A good place to go is Di Matteo, one of the oldest pizzerias in Naples. In the large pizza oven, the pizza is baked with a thick crust until it becomes crispy.

Di Matteo is one of the oldest and best pizzerias in Naples.

But leave some space in your stomach, because Naples has so much more to offer – for example spaghetti alle vongole (pasta with fresh clams) or delicious cakes like sfogliatella, a croissant with sweet ricotta filling, cinnamon and aroma of orange blossom. Reisereporter Simon is sure: More Italy is not possible!

For wine lovers: Tuscany

Deep green mountains, lush olive groves and bright yellow fields with sunflowers – could there be more landscapes of picture books? No wonder Tuscany attracts millions of visitors every year. In addition to the breathtaking scenery and popular excursion destinations of Pisa and Florence, Tuscany has one thing above all to offer: summer. And one of the best in the world.

From the classic Chianti to the popular Cabernet Sauvignon, it has everything a wine lover’s heart desires. In Tuscany people have worked for the perfect wine since the eighth century. So you have to try hard to be disappointed here.

Tuscany is probably the most famous wine growing region in Italy. Anyone who loves good red wine will not want to leave here anymore.

The “Sunny Garden of Italy” is the size of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. Travel journalist Bruntje mentions other reasons why we love Tuscany so much.

For night owls: Milan

Milan is the fashion capital of Italy. Exclusive boutiques and high-priced jewelry line up next to each other. Not surprisingly, Milan is one of the most expensive cities in the world. But those who look behind the curtain of the rich and beautiful will find Italian architecture and culture to fall in love with. For example, the Cathedral of Milan – the landmark of the city is considered the motif of the postcard par excellence.

Milan Cathedral is the symbol of the city. From the roof of the cathedral you have a spectacular view of the city.

After a visit to the Cathedral of Milan, from which you have a fantastic view of the modern metropolis, you should hurry because the hour of happiness starts at 18:00. In the picturesque old town there are numerous restaurants and bars preparing Zucca. The typical aperitif is prepared with rhubarb liqueur, crushed ice, soda and a slice of orange.

For adventurers: The Dolomites

Holidays in the Dolomite mean pure adventure! Anything is possible at an altitude of up to 3300 meters – whether parachuting, skiing or rafting. Impressive mountain panoramas that are not few are at the top. The mountain group is not a UNESCO World Heritage Site for anything.

Rafting tours in summer and quick discounts in winter – Dolomites stand for adventure.

By the way: “Dolomitenmann” takes place once a year. Extreme athletes compete in four disciplines: mountain running, paragliding, mountain biking and white water canoeing. But in addition to the action, vacationers will also find well-being and relaxation, for example in Eggental of South Tyrol.

For art and architecture enthusiasts: Florence

La dolce vita – where better to enjoy the Italian way of life than in the Renaissance city of Florence? Here you can follow in the footsteps of important artists like Michelangelo, Raffael or Botticelli. The fully preserved Old Town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982.

There are more than 70 museums in Florence, each more valuable than the other. Even those who are hardly interested in art can not avoid a visit to the Uffizi Gallery! The complex of 16th-century buildings is worth a visit in itself – inside there are also paintings by some of the world’s most famous painters.

The view of the city of Florence is unique and known beyond the borders of Italy.
