Which is the Best City in Italy?
While spending five months in Italy last fall I vacationed in a few of the cities you list on your internet site.
I would like to share a few thoughts on each of them:
I had read about the city and how beautiful it is on the other site you have about Turin.
I got to tell you I wasn't 100% convinced even if you made it look good. I kind of thought of the place as a big dirty old industrial city - basically Italy's Detroit.
Well, I am sorry I doubted you. This is one amazing city, the downtown area is stunning. The walk from the Piazza Castello down Via Po to the river is just the best.
The Basillica of Superga and the Venaria Palace on the outskirts of the city were two of the most impressive sights I have seen in all of Europe.
You have got to love Rome, I have been to Rome so so many time but I will never ever get enough of this city. Such a buzz and feel to the city, so alive and yet so ancient.
Rome is a huge city and every part of this huge metropolis has something great to see. If I had to choose one world city that everyone should visit it has to be Rome.
Don't go to this dirty place!! A lot of people told me this. Glad I didn't listen to them because they were WRONG!!
Venice sure isn't dirty - better than most other big cities. I kind of spent a lot of my life involved in city planning and still have no idea how they managed to create such an unbelievably unique ciy as this.
I can yada yada for hours on how Venice is amazing but you have to go there to appreciate it. Even the photos of Venice on the web (and yours are great) don't really make you realize how overwhelming that first sight of Venice is. You step out of the train station on a sunny day and see the city before your own eyes and wow!!
If you can visit only one city in Italy which should it be? It would be Rome and then close on its tail would be Venice.

San Giorgio Maggiore is one of the loveliest Venice tourist attractions. Looking across from San Marco the island of San Giorgio is a splendid sight indeed.
How much longer will they allow cruise ships into Venice? This week, during a huge storm, they allowed the Costa Deliziosa to sail. It nearly led to a tragedy. Watch the video to see how close it came…
In every town here in Calabria that I have seen, there is a Monumento ai Caduti. A monument to the fallen, their young men who gave their live-in two world wars.
