The Eternal City, an open-air museum, the cradle of Western civilization, the city of seven hills. Rome has received many nicknames throughout its history, but no one describes the feeling you feel when walking through its streets, discovering its most romantic side. Corners, enjoying its gastronomy or admiring its architecture. Rome is not only eternal, but also infinite.
Each trip leaves you wanting to know more, because it would be impossible to cover the grandeur and history of Rome in a single visit. Therefore, this list of the best things to do in Rome is just an inventory of clichés to start discovering the city, which you can use as a checklist for your trip.
It is very easy to visit the city of Rome, it would be enough to have a tourist map to see all the wonders of Rome. You can move with public transport (There are offers for tourist tickets), rental cars (we do not recommend it because Rome is Chaotic) or on foot if you decide to book a Hotel near the historic center.
There are so many things to do in Florence that probably one month is not enough to see it all. Therefore, it is better to focus on the truly unmissable attractions: those, let it be clear, that “if you have not seen them you can not say that you have visited the city”. At the same time, however, there is an “unexpected” Florence that often ends up crushed by the fame of its many “postcards”.
In the city there is no shortage of parks, open spaces and toy libraries dedicated to them. Finally, a tip: it is better to plan a stay of at least 72 hours for a first approach to the city. Above, moreover, we wrote that one month is not enough to see everything; let alone a day or two. There is a real risk of exhausting tours with fleeting visits to museums and monuments that instead deserve to be seen calmly and carefully.
Here are just some of the most interesting things to see or visit in Firenze

This last day to Firenze we could recommend renting a car for the next stages of your trip. I will be out of the chaos of the big cities and you will be able to drive with more peace of mind. Another option could be private taxi or local transportation.
The land of Chianti can not be missed on a tour of Tuscany. Located east between Siena and Florence, the Chianti region, famous for being one of the most important wine regions in Italy, will reserve wonderful landscapes, wineries surrounded by endless vineyards, enchanted villages and, above all, excellent food and wine.
But in addition to the wonderful scenery in which Chianti is immersed, what you will also love is the number of culinary proposals.
Per goderci al meglio il Chianti abbiamo scelto per una notte la Tenuta Cortedomina. Immersa nel verde, in mezzo a una distesa di vigneti, si trova in una posizione strategica, centrale, vicino a Radda in Chianti. Location molto bella, c’è anche la possibilità di cenare nel loro ristorante interno, e naturally assaggiare uno dei vini che producono localmente.
San Gimignano is undoubtedly one of the must-see places on a trip to Tuscany. Famous for its 14 towers and a historic center where you can get lost in really suggestive corners, it is now included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Enter through Porta San Giovanni, the southern end, and walk inside the walls. Don’t miss Piazza del Duomo and the Cathedral of San Gimignano, Piazza delle Erbe, the central Piazza della Cisterna and finally the Church of Sant’Agostino at the northern end.
If you choose, you can have dinner included in your accommodation, but you could also dine outside of your accommodation. Among the recommended places we can mention Osteria di Sant’Agostino, Perucà, La Mandragola, Chiribiri and Quibus.
To enjoy the area of San Gimignano and its surroundings we have chosen a truly magical place: Agrivilla i Pini. Agrivilla, just outside the center of San Gimignano, is a Biotique that bases its roots on a vegan and sustainable creed. Authentic philosophy, extraordinary location, the perfect place to relax for a few days in exceptional peace. If you stay here, you will have the opportunity to try the vegan cuisine with views every night.
Volterra is one of the most famous villages in Tuscany. It is a town of Etruscan origin and one of the few that still retains an almost intact wall. What you’ll appreciate most about Volterra is its incredible view of the surrounding valleys. Walk through the historic center until you reach Piazza dei Priori (known by many for the movie New Moon from the Twilight saga), the heart of the medieval city. Also not to be missed is the Cathedral of Volterra (Beautiful) and the Baptistery.
La Carabaccia: Typical trattoria in the historic center of Volterra. It offers a menu of very few really tasty dishes. Great food, perfect location, super cute interior and attention to detail. Highly recommended! After lunch and before sunset you can leave Volterra. After enjoying the northernmost part of Tuscany to the fullest, we head south for the last days of our trip and continue towards beautiful Siena.
Monteriggioni is a village north of Siena that will seem stopped in time. With a perfectly intact wall, it can be admired at the top of Mount Ala. I think seeing it from the outside is as impressive as discovering its narrow streets and main square. You will find that it dates back to the Middle Ages, a walk here is recommended. Before arriving in magical Siena, there is a place we think you should visit: the Abbey of San Galgano. Immersed in an expanse of fields in the Tuscan countryside, it is a church built in the thirteenth century. Over the centuries it has suffered a slow destruction, leading it today to be a unique spiritual structure of its kind. Look up and when you see the sky you will understand the specialty of this place. A few minutes walk, do not miss the hermitage of San Galgano, where his famous sword is kept in the stone.
You will finally arrive in Siena and possibly or almost certainly it will seem like little time to visit it, but you will still be amazed.
Piazza Del Campo: If you think of Siena, the first images that will come to mind will be linked to this square. Symbol of Siena, the beating heart of the city, it is dominated by the Palazzo Publico and the Torre Mangia. To take a wonderful photo of the tower, enter the courtyard to your immediate right and look up. To enjoy it during sunset, choose one of the many bars and cafes for an aperitif with a view.
It is forbidden to come to Siena and not to buy the cumulative ticket for the Duomo complex, valid for 3 days. Included, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Duomo di Siena, also known as the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, one of the most fascinating cathedrals in Italy. It contains, among the most important, works by Pisano, Michelangelo, Bernini, Donatello. Do not forget to enter the small Piccolomini Library, look at the ceiling and the side frescoes, you will be delighted. Not to be missed, the Crypt, recently discovered in 1999, and the Baptistery of San Giovanni are also included in the ticket. Instead, to see the Gate of Heaven, a path over the roofs of the cathedral, you’ll have to buy an additional ticket.
If there’s one thing you need to pay close attention to in Siena, it’s parking. Find out first about guarded parking and do not cross the walls, it is one of the cities with the highest fines in Italy.
In Siena we recommend a location in the city center, a few steps walk from Piazza del Campo: Casatorre dei Leoni . Historic building, now transformed into B&B, combines a modern touch with the original details of the place. Tastefully furnished location, spotless breakfast, very central location. But we can reserve you in another structure at pleasure.
The beautiful Lucca, in the extreme northwest of Tuscany, is a hospitable city, easily visited on foot and by bicycle, with excellent gastronomy and an environment rich in nature and history. What is striking, when you visit it for the first time, is the balanced mix of lifestyles: from the imposing Renaissance walls to the rich eighteenth-century palaces of silk merchants, through the desire for large imperial spaces that identify nineteenth-century Lucca, even in contemporary Lucca there is nothing out of place. in the magnificent urban context.
Lucca is often identified with its medieval and Renaissance period, in which the great churches were built of storied white marble and in which looms quickly wove to produce the precious silks that were the fortune of the city. But it is a tight habit for the Tuscan capital, whose first architectures come from further afield: Lucca is above all a city of Roman foundation, as recalled via Fillungo and via San Paolino-Santa Croce, the two routes that follow the Roman decumani, and the large oval square that preserves the shape of the Amphitheater, in addition to the central Piazza San Michele, once the Forum around which the city developed. In truth, Lucca is even older: its name derives from the Celtic-Ligurian word Luk, meaning “marshy place” but also “light”, and recent archaeological discoveries suggest an Etruscan origin of the city.
Here are 10 monuments and experiences not to be missed in and around Lucca.
They have turned 500 years old and are the symbol of the city. For 5 centuries they have embraced and veiled it, with discretion. And despite their greatness, they are barely noticeable. However, they are the largest monument in Lucca and one of the largest in Tuscany. We are obviously talking about the walls of Lucca, a perimeter of 4 kilometers, 30 meters wide and 12 meters high, built between 1513 and 1645. Today they are a magnificent tree-lined avenue, frequented in all seasons: in spring the avenues of linden trees, magnolias, horse chestnut trees; In autumn it is the red oaks, the beeches, the tulips that give the spectacle of the foliage.
Admired all over the world, they are the only example of a defensive wall of the Modern Age that has been preserved intact to this day: you can still see the spaces of the gunboats, the battlements of the moat, the basements, the monumental entrance doors. Throughout the year, events of various kinds, from music to gardening, sports and historical recreations animate the terraces and bastions in a renewed dialogue with the city. At the foot of the Walls, near Porta Elisa, the Botanical Garden, founded in the nineteenth century, is intimately connected to the Walls.
According to the Tci Toscana Green Guide, the Cathedral of San Martino, a magnificent example of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, is one of the places not to be missed. On the outside you can see the asymmetry of the façade that had to adapt to the existing bell tower. On the polychrome façade is the statue of San Martino who shares his mantle with a poor mantle. On the right side there is a labyrinth that refers to the myth of Ariadne and Theseus, in a frequent mixture of sacred and profane. Inside, it is worth seeing the sarcophagus of Ilaria Del Carretto, a masterpiece by Jacopo della Quercia. She was the wife of Paolo Guinigi, who died young in 1405. In light marble, it depicts the girl with a serene air, her arms crossed over her chest and the dog crouching at her feet. An image that transmits sweetness and love.
Similar lines, elegant and slender, also characterized here by light materials, for the other symbolic church of Lucca, San Michele, in the homonymous square. Masterpiece of Romanesque Gothic architecture, it presents a mixture of styles linked to its long construction, between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries. It stands on the site formerly occupied by the Roman forum (that’s why it’s called San Michele in Foro), on a stone promontory bordered by marble columns. The particularly high façade is decorated with four orders of loggias and crowned by a large marble statue of Archangel Michael in the act of defeating a dragon with a spear. A legend from Lucca states that, in particular light conditions, you can see a green spark coming out of the statue.
The museums of Lucca tell the story of the city, from its foundation in the second century BC, the house in the heart of the historic center where the great opera composer was born and lived in his high school years, before leaving the city for the sunsets of Versilia. To know the splendor of the Lucca of the merchants, just cross the door of the Mansi Palace, a beautiful noble residence built between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Lido de Camaiore is the sun and beach stage that we reserve for you on your trip to Italy in Tuscany (of course from spring until September), to show that Tuscany has it all. Very close to Viareggio (famous for its carnival in February), or Pietra Santa, famous for its stone and marble sculptures, or Forte dei Marmi, a kind of luxury boutique city. You will find yourself in the versilia, a coastline of more than 20 km of beach, spa establishments and restaurants.
When we speak of Pisa we inevitably refer to its tower; But this imposing leaning bell tower is just one of the many monuments that the beautiful Tuscan city has to offer. The beautiful Piazza del Duomo brings together, in an architectural ensemble unique in the world, not in vain called “Piazza dei Miracoli”, the main religious monuments of the city: the Tower, the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Camposanto. Pisa, however, does not end at this square: it is enough to move a little to discover the artistic wonders that make it one of the most beautiful cities of art in Italy.
Buildings, monuments and museums help to keep alive the memory of a past in which Pisa was the Maritime Republic and, for a long time, the undisputed owner of the Mediterranean. In addition, while maintaining the title of Queen of Studies, conferred by the Florentines, firmly in place, Pisa is an extremely young, dynamic and lively city. Here, then, is what you absolutely must see in Pisa to discover this jewel of rare beauty.
Emblem of the city for its characteristic slope, in addition to the first thing you see in Pisa, the Tower is the most famous monument of Piazza del Duomo. Built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, the Tower leans because the land gave way already in the early stages of construction and has remained so ever since.
Piazza del Duomo is Milan’s most majestic square and is home to the city’s largest Gothic cathedral. Take a few minutes to admire the 135 spires and countless statues decorating the exterior from one of the square’s bars, then enter and climb to the panoramic terraces for an unparalleled view over Milan’s rooftops. With a ticket of about € 13, you can get on the interior elevator and effortlessly reach a height of 70 meters. The sculptors who have worked on the Duomo over the years are many, and some have taken some artistic license: have fun looking for anomalous elements such as tennis rackets and boxing gloves among the Gothic reliefs!
It is the concrete testimony of how much Milan deserves to be one of the fashion capitals of the world. In this magnificent glass-roofed gallery, which connects Piazza del Duomo with Piazza della Scala, you’ll find elegant cafes and boutiques of luxury brands, such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada. Before visiting the two squares, order a quick coffee at the bar or, if you want to take a break, sit back and relax in the outdoor area of one of the many bars in the gallery: it will not come cheap, but it is one of those things that you have to do at least once in your life.
Despite its name, Castello Sforzesco actually looks like a fortress with a large inner courtyard. The complex houses a library and several museums, some of which exhibit the works of Michelangelo and da Vinci, as well as objects and artifacts from Ancient Egypt. The entrance to the castle is free, while the entrance to the museum costs about € 5 (free one hour before closing and every first Sunday of the month). This imposing structure rises about 800 meters northwest of the Duomo.
Take a long walk through the charming streets of Brera and you will discover one of the most picturesque neighborhoods of the historic center of Milan. Thanks to the presence of the Academy of Fine Arts and a renowned gallery, Brera breathes culture. Every third Sunday of the month, art dealers and antique dealers meet at the neighborhood market of Via Fiori Chiari. Small but elegant cafes and typical food shops overlook the narrow streets of Brera, which when the sun goes down create, with their lights, a unique atmosphere full of atmosphere.
Risotto is a popular dish throughout northern Italy, but the most famous version in the world is undoubtedly Milanese with saffron. Every chef in Milan prepares this dish in his own way, but the perfect Milanese risotto must have an ideal balance of flavors enriched by just the right amount of saffron, which gives the dish a unique aroma and an unmistakable golden color. Don’t miss the risotto proposed by Il Marchesino, next to the Teatro alla Scala: it is adorned with authentic gold leaf.
The Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology is one of Milan’s most fascinating and attractive historical attractions. Outside, a Renaissance monastery. Inside, a wonderful display of interesting interactive exhibits. The museum’s offer is extensive: in addition to realistic three-dimensional reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci’s projects, you can admire flight devices, models of particle physics, means of locomotion and explore galaxies with multimedia supports. Children will be captivated by the life-size World War II submarine. The cost of the full ticket starts at about € 10.
