8 Top Highlights in Italy in 8 Days

Why should Italy be on everyone’s travel bucket list? Italy is magical, it is historic and beautiful, it’s the site of so many important events and moments and it’s where both Rome and Venice are. Those two cities alone are reason enough to go there. You can visit alone and work out how to get around in its famously chaotic and ancient cities, or you can go with a guided group tour and have all the details taken care of so you can give all your attention to the sights that you just can’t miss in this magical country.


The birth place of the Roman Empire, the source of the conquerors of the ancient world including the mighty Caesar. Rome feels like history itself and yet it is still an impossibly modern, bustling city. No trip to Rome is complete without sitting on the Spanish steps and breathing in the eternity of this city. Or without a visit to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin over your shoulder to this stunning fountain so you can come back to Rome. Do we need to mention the mouth-watering food that Rome is famous for?

The Pantheon

The fascinating monument that left even Michelangelo speechless; when he first saw the Pantheon he proclaimed it of “angelic and not human work”. This iconic building is an architectural wonder and a marvel to see in real life. If you could only see one thing in Rome, let it be this building.

Vatican City

The smallest country in the world, Vatican City is the centre of one of the oldest and most popular religions in the world. You will feel the history in this place, and the hushed quiet within the walls will be a welcome respite from the noise and rush of Rome. Final stop here should be the Sistine Chapel, one of greatest art treasures of all time, hosting Michelangelo’s masterpiece.


Often named Italy’s loveliest medieval city, your stop in Sienna promises fresh and tasty meals, artistic masterpieces and a picturesque approaching road that will let you see the winding countryside of Tuscany.

Wine Tasting in Chianti

Does anything else need to be said? Is there anything more Italian than sitting in the country side in a vineyard and sipping red wine?


Florence has been called the most beautiful city in the world many times. Newcomers to the city sometimes find themselves becoming dizzy and nauseated by all the beauty around them. Florence has artistic masterpieces and some of the best, most innovative food you have ever tasted.

Michelangelo’s David

In Florence, at the Accademia Gallery, you can admire the perfection of the most famous statue in the world: Michelangelo’s David. This masterpiece is a well-known staple of western art and a testament to the genius of the Renaissance. In real life, it’s so much larger and more exquisite than it ever looks in the pictures.


“When I seek another word for ‘music’, I never find any other word than ‘Venice’ says Friedrich Nietzsche. Venice is not only the city on the water; it is music, poetry, love, dream… Venice is everything beyond your imagination.

These sights are just some of the things you can see on your Italian holiday. Tour packages to Italy are available anytime of the year and visit all of the major sights and cities. There are many more things to see and discover, so make sure you enjoy your time in this enchanting country.
