Ellen Pickover

My favourite thing about spending time in Italy’s cities is people-watching in the piazzas with a caffe in hand. It takes me no time at all to slot into the laid-back, Italian way of life.

Destinations in Italian Cities
Florence
Florence is the capital of Tuscany – and the Renaissance art capital of the world. World-famous galleries and museums knock shoulders with the sky-scraping cathedral and medieval Ponte Vecchio bridge.
Rome
Rome is the colossal capital city of Italy, as much famous for its Michelin-approved wining and dining scene as its Roman and Renaissance monuments.
Venice
Venice has been a sanctuary for the rich and royal for over 1,000 years. Expect golden museum-palaces, mosaicked basilicas and restaurants with private gondolas.
