ITINERARY : ITALY
Before we moved to London, Matt and I decided that we wanted to travel just a little bit before we had to settle down and start looking for a place. Rather than doing multiple cities in different countries, we decided to choose one country and explore the cities there. We chose ITALY!
I know when planning for a trip, it’s always good to see how many days people chose to stay in each city, what they saw and perhaps if they felt that it was the right amount of time spent there. Well I know that’s what I get curious about!
Down below was our itinerary and how long we stayed in each place. I felt like we gave these cities/town a good go and spent the time needed in each city to enjoy it without rushing too much. Our only regret was not staying long enough in Naples and Assisi. I’ll also try and include what tours and sites we did from there if I remember them all 😔
I’ll be doing separate blog posts on each city a bit later but if you want any other information before then, just write in the comments below and I’ll reply with an email 😃
NAPLES: 2 nights
- Pompeii Ruins
- Mount Vesuvius
POSITANO, AMALFI COAST: 2 Nights
SORRENTO: 3 Nights
- day trip to Amalfi Town
- boat tour of Isle of CAPRI
- day trip to Positano
ROME: 4 nights
- The Colosseum
- The Vatican
- St Peter’s Basilica
- Fountain Di Trevi
I thought we missed out on tickets to the Underground tour of the colosseum as they only allow 25 people at a time to go underground. This is where the gladiators used to stand before a fight, where the animals were before they used them for hunting and you can see all the trap doors. I Checked almost every site to get a hold of them and only had 1 availability until the next week and this was my must do in Rome. I owe this one to my persistent hubby who got tickets for the next day for the both of us! Thank you baby, the experience was so awesome! #kLmmLk #embracelifetravel #nietoeurotrip
ASSISI: 1 Night
- town of Assisi
- Basilica Of San Francesco
- we had the most AMAZING TRUFFLE pasta (Not a tour, just REALLY worth Mentioning- separate Blog post to follow) Here is a video though!
FLORENCE: 4 Nights
- Cattedrale Di Santa Maria Del Fiore (Duomo)
- Galleria Dell’Accademia which houses the famous DAVID by Michelangelo
CINQUE TERRE: 3 Nights
- Stayed in Corniglia
- Monterosso Al Mare
MILAN: 3 Nights
- Duomo Di Milano
- Day trip to Lago Di Como (Lake Como)
I know we didn’t do all the typical touristy things that others may have on their list but some days Matt and I chose to just go roaming around the city and chill for the day rather than hopping on a tour.
Everyone values different things while travelling. Matt and I love embracing the culture and immersing into it as much as we can rather than spending a couple of minutes here and there for a photo and then BANG, straight onto the next site. So if you are that type of traveler (nothing wrong with that 🙂 ) I’m sure you would be able to fit in wayyyy more than we did and do extra tours on top of what we did :).
If you guys have any other tours that you felt like was a MUST DO and we missed out on, Please pop it down in the comments below and would love to hear what they were Matt and I aren’t done with Italy yet! So it might be on our next trip 😉 ALSO, this was a very vague itinerary so if you want to know more details e.g. how we got from each city, which hotels and air BnB’s we stayed at there will be other blog posts for it, but if you can’t wait til then (cause your trip is coming up) comment below with your questions and email and I’ll Reply xx
