Let's start from the North, and in particular from the city of fashion, finance and risotto: Milan! Known as the design capital of the world is probably the most modern city in all of Italy, once we arrive and leave our luggage in the hotel we immediately give ourselves a scenic tour of the city that allows us to realize the distances between the various monuments to major attractions, to take a quick and comfortable tour of the sight red buses we immediately give ourselves a scenic tour of the city that allows us to realize the distances between the various monuments to major attractions, to make a quick and convenient tour we chose the red buses discovered Cityseeing, we take a valid ticket 48h so that we can also use it to move to the city. We take a ride on the central line and descend to the Duomo stop to climb its terraces from where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the city, to climb on the terraces of the Cathedral we pre-purchased online tickets skip the row which are very comfortable!
We come down from the terraces to treat ourselves to a refreshing drink and a snack at the bar on the top floor of the Rinascente.
We leave with the City Sightseeing bus to reach the Vinciano Dinner,also known as the last supper, we have the guided tour booked well in advance, availability is always very limited!
After the visit we return to the hotel to rest a little before dinner in the quaint Navigli district!
On the second day we take a walk in the morning in the state-of-the-art district of Milan City, from here you can easily reach Chinatown for a little 'atypical' lunch. From here we then move to the westernmost area of the city to visit Casa Milan and the famous San Siro stadium. For the second dinner we chose a trattoria in the center to enjoy the infamous Milanese Risotto!
On the third day we wake up early to catch a fast train to Turin,the journey is quite fast, in about an hour we arrived. Although there would be a lot of things to see in this beautiful city from the big boulevards we had to do a sort of thing to visit, we focused on the center and chose to visit 2 of the most renowned museums: the Egyptian Museum and the Museum of Cinema. We had booked in advance a package that includes tickets skips the queue for both museums, the entrance skips the line to the lift of the Mole Antonelliana (symbol of the city) and the tour climbs and I go down with the red open bus (which turned out very convenient as it has a stop in front of the station). The day is very busy, but the tickets skip the line allow us to break down the long lines that are at the entrance of the museums, so we manage to visit everything in the right time and resume the train that we had booked at 18.00 to return to Milan.
On the fourth day we move to Florence,always using a high-speed train, we arrive late in the morning, just enough time to go and lay our luggage and then take a walk in the center between the Cathedral of Florence, Piazza Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti.
For the fifth day we booked a day trip from the centre of Florence that takes us to some of the main Toscane destinations such as Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano. The excursion lasts all day and also includes lunch in a wine cellar in the Tuscan hills with a guided tour and a wine tasting from their products. Returning to Florence, in talking to the escort about how excited we were about the tour, especially the visit with tasting there cellar, tells us about another half-day excursion (afternoon) in Chianti and Radda with wine tastings and wine tasting,we decide to book it for the next day!
In the evening at dinner we treat the famous Florentine steak in one of the many trattorias in the center.
On the morning of the Sixth Day we immediately visit the famous Gallery of the Academy that houses the infamous David, symbol of Florence, we do not take a guided tour but tickets with reservation (so as to avoid the queue at the entrance). We have a quick lunch with a typical lamprey sandwich bought in a shop in the street and we head to the central season where we meet with the escort for our wine excursion to Radda and in the hills of Chianti.
On the seventh day we take the train to Rome,it is about 2.30h of travel, we arrive in the morning in Rome Termini, coming out we come across a store of the sour red buses that we used in Milan and Turin, since there is a stop right in front of the station we decide to take the 48h ticket so that we use it the next day.
Let's immediately discover the symbols, not only of the city but of Italy: the Colosseum! In the afternoon, however, we take a guided tour inside the Vatican Museums, they are absolutely worth a visit!
After getting some rest at the hotel we go to the typical Trastevere district where there are many nice restaurants for dinner.
On the eighth day we spend it visiting the city by open bus and walk between Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Square and the Imperial Holes.
The ninth and penultimate day of our beautiful tour in the beautiful country we leave to reach Naples,the city of the sea, the sun and PIZZA! The train takes about 1.30h, once we arrive we deposit our luggage and give ourselves a walk in the center where then we stop to eat obviously a Neapolitan pizza!
In the afternoon we take the bus that allows us to take a scenic tour along the coast of the city from where we can enjoy incredible views of Vesuvius,the colors that you can see at sunset are fabulous!
On the second day instead we want to dedicate it to the discovery of the ancient and famous Pompeii, we take the bus that from the center of Naples takes us in front of the excavations that we had previously purchased together with the entrance ticket for the excavations, at the end of the visit unfortunately it is time to return because our holiday has come to an end and our return flight does not wait 😊 !
