Italy offers countless opportunities for visits and even outside the itineraries usually more popular with tourists, there are real gems to be discovered and admired.
Let's explore together these locations that are often underestimated but really worth a visit.
Genoa and the thousand faces of Liguria
Genoa is not just the Port or the Aquarium. The capital of Liguria, with its lively center rich in history, is able to enchant with the beauty of its noble palaces, among which the Palazzi dei Rolli stand out along the elegant Via Garibaldi, a wonderful New Baroque and Renaissance road declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With the "competition" of cosmopolitan Milan full of opportunities, Bergamo often remains more in the shade. But actually, the fourth Lombard capital is a romantic treasure trove of history at the foot of the Orobie Prealps with the “Città Alta” with its perfect square, hidden courtyards, shops, and intact walls, a World Heritage Site.
Treviso, to visit all year round
Treviso is a beautiful city of art to visit in every season. Walking without haste through the narrow streets of the medieval center, the stones and red bricks, and the canals that flow alongside the manicured gardens is an experience not to be missed about thirty kilometers from Venice.
Sovana, an important Etruscan center
The village of the municipality of Sorano in Tuscany, Sovana is an important Etruscan, medieval and Renaissance center. Admire the ancient village with the Cathedral, the Rocca and the historic buildings, the Etruscan necropolis, the Vie Cave and the Treasure of Sovana, 498 5th century gold coins in the San Mamiliano Museum.
Montefalco, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy
In the heart of Umbria, where Sagrantino di Montefalco and Montefalco Rosso wines are produced, the village of Montefalco is part of the circuit of the “Borghi Più Belli d'Italia” (the most beautiful villages in Italy) and has much to offer in addition to the aromas and flavors of wine. "Railing of Umbria", offers breathtaking views over the centers of Spello, Perugia, Assisi, Trevi, Foligno, Spoleto, Bevagna and Gualdo Cattaneo.
Foggia, a seductive city
In Puglia, a little known city compared to the others is Foggia. A capital that, in fact, stands out for being alive, disruptive and seductive. Do not miss its imposing cathedral and the various ancient buildings.
Ravello, extraordinary gardens on the cliffs
The most fascinating and relaxing destination on the Amalfi Coast is Ravello, a real gem that offers an extraordinary panoramic view of the coast, the blue of the sea and the fragrant Mediterranean bush. Terraces and pergolas in bloom, Moorish-style Villa Rufolo with terraced gardens and medieval-style Villa Cimbrone with a famous garden: an unmissable destination.
Marina di Pisciotta, a place suspended in time
Marina di Pisciotta is a splendid place where it seems that time has stopped, inserted in the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park. The ancient Campania village is perched on the hill and guards narrow streets between colorful houses, hidden churches and tiny squares. The coast is a marvel of sand and sea.
Marina di Pesciotta
Porto Selvaggio, crystal clear waters and relaxation
In the Porto Selvaggio and Palude del Capitano Regional Natural Park, Porto Selvaggio with its crystal clear waters and regenerating dense pine forest deserves a stop. Nature, sea, relaxation and an ancient charm are to be rediscovered in this wonderful side of Puglia.
