Italy - north or south?

Postby buyan » Wed, 18 Jan 2012 9:18 pm

We are longing to go to Italy and hear so much about north vs south....! Should we head north of Rome to Florence and Venice, or south to Naples and Sicily? Also, any experience with homestay in Italy?

I loved Rome. I can't recommend it enough. Florence, though, is full of tourists, and most the people who live there live out of the city centre. On the other hand, the further south you go, the more unbearable the heat will be!

Florence is the birthplace of Renaissance and the home of the best collection of Italian paintings anywhere in the world (Uffizi), some of the best gelato, leather products, and so on. :)

Milan, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Rome, and the Vatican City! Cinque Terre if you love the beach. My friends say the region of Tuscany is a must-see for wine lovers. Italy is the second-largest wine producer, just behind France :)

North definitely. Venice is not gonna be around for much longer. Experts predict that the city will sink due to rising water levels etc..So now is a good time to visit it! And if you're going with a loved one, all the more romantic. :)
