City of Romance

On the 5th (Sat), don't miss a visit to St Mark's Campanile, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di San Marco, admire the striking features of Doge's Palace, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco, and finally take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri. On the next day, don't miss a visit to Peggy Guggenheim Collection, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (San Zanipolo), snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, then explore the activities along Canal Grande, then wander the streets of Cannaregio, and finally visit Campo del Ghetto.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Venice fast, fun, and easy.

Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.

Amalfi Coast travel guide

Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Gardens
Renowned for its beautiful landscape and medieval fishing villages that cling precariously to the Mediterranean cliffs, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's top vacation destinations. This World Heritage Site stretches for about 50 km (30 mi) on the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and offers numerous places to visit, from terraced lemon gardens and whitewashed villas to cliff-top views of the sea. Explore the coastline's towns, bays, and resorts. During the peak tourist season, the Amalfi Coast's single seaside road is often jammed with dozens of buses. For that reason, the ubiquitous scooter may be the best way to get around and sightsee. You can also access quite a bit by bicycle.
