One of the great things about living in Europe is the ease with which you can travel between the 50 different countries this continent has to offer. What that means for you if you are travelling to Europe is that you have the luxury of being able to visit a country more than once without having to travel long distances or rack up huge bills. So, with that in mind we are going to take a look at one of the places you might want to return to again and again, Italy.
Let’s start with the capital of Italy and one of the most historic places on the planet. The saying goes that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and never was that inference relevant than when you actually visit this Italian city. While you can see the sights and sounds in 24 hours, you should try to take more than just the single day to really dig deep into the joys that Rome has to offer.
As we have already said, Rome is a city that oozes history and it can seem that every time you turn a corner there is another monument to this country’s fascinating past. You will need to make sure you have time to pay a visit to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Trevi Fountain - and make sure you have some coins to make a wish at the fountain. To get around Rome you might want to look into a private hire company like WhereToRome to help you see as much as you possibly can.
One thing that can pass some people by when they visit Rome is that you can tick off two countries at once. Vatican City is actually a recognised nation and a tour around the home of the Catholic Religion will give you a look at some of the most impressive feats of art and architecture ever created.

Any discussion about a visit to Italy would be remiss to not mention heading over to the 100 small islands all linked by canals and bridges, that is Venice. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world, not just Europe, and as so much to do and see. Sticking with the religious themes of Italy, a visit to Saint Mark’s Square and Saint Mark’s Basilica is an absolute must.
However, there is much more to this unique part of the world for you to explore. Make sure you have your walking shoes on and make your way around the back streets just off of the Grand Canal where you will find all sorts of Italian life, intricate bridges and the Libreria Acqua Alta with its staircase of books.
Finally, you should make the most of the water taxis and catch a boat out to islands like Burano - a fisherman’s village all with houses painted in bold and bridge colours. There is also the Lido if you are looking to put your feet up on the beach for a few hours and let the excitement from the past few days wash over you.
