Heading to Italy and only have 10 days to visit the beautiful country? Don’t worry. There is still so much that you can do, but it takes a little organization.
First, decide what’s important for you to see. Is the Amalfi coast a must? Can you skip Rome, but you must see Tuscany? Anyone can give you tips on the best way to see Italy in 10 days, but if the places aren’t ones you want to see, it won’t matter.
However, if you are still looking to see the most popular sites in Italy, be sure to include Florence, Rome, Tuscany, Venice and Naples on your list.
Next, what’s your budget? A 10-day vacation Italy can put a dent in any budget, so you may need to choose your locations based on your finances.
Once you have a budget, a list of places to see and a timeline, you can start to put together your itinerary. If you still need a suggested 10-day itinerary for a trip to Italy, then here are a few ideas:
- Start your trip in Rome: Spend a couple of days visiting the country’s capital and make sure you see the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and the Colosseum.
- Head over to Vatican City: Here you should take a couple of days to see St. Peter’s Basilica and the Cupola di San Pietro as well as the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel.
- Tour Tuscany: A trip to Italy wouldn’t be complete without a tour of Tuscany, which is known for its rolling hills landscape, sunflower fields and cypress trees. You can many natural parks where you can hike and bike through the region.
- Football in Florence: We call it soccer in the United States, but here you can see Italy’s favorite pastime up close. Fiorentina plays here, so make sure you snag some tickets. While you’re in Florence, spend a few days also looking at the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most famous museums in the world with collections of paintings of the fourteenth century and especially from Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo.
There you go, a few days in each and before you know it, your 10-day vacation will be over and you’ll be planning your return trip to see more!
