Italy is one of those places so many of us dream about visiting. The gorgeous landscapes, the delicious food, the intriguing history… Italy has it all, and more.

This is a big country. You won’t see everything in one visit, so don’t rush through. Decide what’s important to you and focus on those places and activities.

And remember, the Italian way is to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

The following posts and information will inspire you to take that dream vacation and help you plan a trip to Italy.

Italy itineraries and more

We’ve put together sample itineraries, location-specific information, and guides to help you travel in Italy. Whether you want to base yourself in one city or explore from one region to the next, you’ll find helpful tips and suggestions in the following posts.

Italy tour reviews

Tour can be a great way to travel depending on your circumstances. Maybe a cruise is right for you, since it takes you to several places in a limited amount of time. You can get a taste of each destination and decide to go back to one or two for a deeper look on a future trip.

Or maybe you want to plan out your own itinerary and add in some day tours to enhance your vacation. Day tours can get you behind the scenes access, skip the line privileges, and unique experiences you can’t recreate on your own.

Italy reading, guidebooks, and movies

There’s nothing like a book or a movie to fuel your wanderlust. For me, even reading a guidebook excites me about visiting a particular place. Here are a few guidebooks to help you plan a trip to Italy, and novels and movies to inspire you.
