Our beloved Italy is a splendid country, beautiful to visit even in winter. If you are planning to spend your vacation in an Italian city of art, in a snowy village or enjoy the romance of the sea during the cold season, here you will find a list of 5 out of 10 must-see destinations in Italy in winter.

Florence
Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, is a wonderful city full of art and architectural wonders. For this reason, it is one of the main Italian tourist destinations, and it is almost always very crowded. Not in the cold season, though, when the queues to access exhibitions, museums or art galleries such as the Uffizi are in fact considerably shorter than at other times of the year. Florence is also a very trendy city, great for shopping especially in January when the winter sales begin. And for street-food lovers, there are many specialties of Tuscany to try, such as the typical “lampredotto”, a beef tripe dish usually served with a green parsley sauce, pepper, olive oil and eaten with a bread roll.


Florence


Turin
Famous throughout the world for its imposing Mole Antonelliana, Turin is a city rich in history, of both cultural and gastronomic importance. Walking through its historic center you will be fascinated by the beauty of its parks and historic buildings. There are many attractions to visit also in winter, such as the famous Egyptian Museum, the most important in the world after the one in Cairo.


Turin


Palermo
The warmth of Sicilian hospitality is just what it takes to warm hearts on cold winter days. But in Palermo, you will also be surprised by the beauty of its historic buildings, such as the Norman Palace, the Palatine Chapel, and the splendid Cathedral. The traditional street markets of Sicily, such as Ballarò and Capo are always active, even from December to March, with the difference that they will be a little less crowded than usual.


Palermo


Pompeii
The mild Campania climate makes Pompeii a perfect destination to visit in winter. Its archaeological excavations are known all over the world and the museum dedicated to them is also worth visiting. Pompeii is the right destination whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or with your family, it is an extremely fascinating site and is really worth seeing at least once in your life, also exploring the splendid Amalfi coast.


Pompeii


Alberobello
Let's move to Puglia, one of the regions of Italy where there is the most beautiful sea. But Puglia is also famous for its Trulli and the most famous are those of Alberobello. These wonderful buildings are the flagship of this town, where tourism is constantly growing. In fact, every year hundreds of thousands of tourists come here to photograph these extravagant houses with a conical roof, especially in the spring and summer months. So visiting Alberobello at another time of the year is a great idea.
