Okay, well... I've travelled to Italy a couple of times:
most recently at the beginning of February this year.
On various trips, I've spent a couple of days in each
of these towns and cities: Venice, Florence, Ravenna,
Verona, Rome, Trieste, Pisa, Trento, Ancona, Bari,
Ventimiglia and Brindisi.
Of these Verona and Florence were probably my
favourites and Ventimiglia, though only a tiny border
town on the Italian Riviera in the northwest (some
twenty minutes East of Monaco) has its own charm too.
Venice is remarkable but horrendously overcrowded in
the summer. Rome has enough to see to keep you
occupied for a year without stopping.
If you go to attitude Travel Italy:
you can read an article by Italian Sandro Buono about
the island of Ischia in the Gulf of Naples. I've never
been there, but he describes it like a dream in his
article, so I'm tempted to travel there myself when I
have the opportunity!
Over the next month or so, I shall be adding lots more
information about the country as well as maps and
photos of Italy, so please keep checking attitude
Travel Italy for updates (I'd appreciate it!).
In the meantime, I'm happy to answer any questions you
have about places you're thinking of travelling to in
Italy or the easiest / cheapest way to travel there
from the States etc.
Italy is a lovely country and the people are
incredibly friendly... you'll have a great time there!
