Hey /trv/

Im a britbonger, booking a trip for next month in Italy. I've been Rome , Milan, Venice, Pisa and Todi before and Loved it. What are some off the beat locations I should visit?

When I'm travelling I like walking and history. Not a big nightlife lad. My budget is pretty much unlimited.
>>
Why not Florence?
>>
>>2232635
Oh shit , forgot to mention been Florence before as well. Was also beautiful. Thank you. It's a great recommendation. Anywhere else you loved?
>>
>>2232637
I only did the big three; Rome, Florence and Venice. But spend some time in Tuscany and explore smaller towns like San Gimignano, etc if you can.
>>
>>2232629

Bologna, Urbino are relatively off the beat compared to the others

Aquileia, Mantova or Cremona if you're seriously looking for wtf nobody goes there but why

Italianon btw
>>
>>2232645
Thanks Pizzabro,

Looked up Aquileia, Mantova ,Cremona and they all looked lovely. (Tbf I'm comparing them to towns in Bongland which are all horofic). Why wouldn't I wnat to go to them?
>>
If you go to Italy for 3 weeks and don't go to San Marino I would've beaten you if I were your dad.
>>
>>2232629
walking and history? why don't you try "Cammino di Assisi"? basically a "Camino de Santiago" in Italy following the path of St. Francis. Also check the more famous "Via Francigena"
>>
>>2232629
I heard bologne has really good food.
>>
inb4 rural Apennines anon

Id recommend Ravenna if youre in to the local history. A day trip/one night stay is enough. The Basilica de San Vitale is impressive. Also get a piadina
>>
>>2232648

Because 99.9% of tourists go to Rome, Venice and Florence despite having zero interest in art, history or architecture
>>
>>2232925

Bologna as a hub with daytips to Ravenna, Modena and Parma is just perfection
>>
I'm flying into milan 3 nights there, then 3 nights in venice. Thinking of stopping in florence for a few days before flying to spain.
>>
>>2232629
Vatican City, San Marino ?

Best spots to stay in Rome, Florence, and Venice? I will be there at the end of the month on a two week holiday hitting those cities.

Also, Italy-bros, where's the best place to stay when visiting Lake Garda?

Just got back from Vittorio Veneto.
Second time there, first time was English teaching five years ago, this time was because I told the GF I'd take her.
Would recommend, close to many other cities, historical sites, and stuff to do. Conegliano is 13km away and its surrounding areas are full of prosecco vineyards. Toni Doro, a twelve hectare vineyard that produces 25,000 bottles a year do tours and tasting for 12 euro a head and sell bottles on site for 8.
Vittorio Veneto itself has a population of 25,000 was the site of the final Italian victory over the Austrians, and has many war memorials and a museum dedicated to the event. There is an abundance of small churches and chapels, one of which, "Sanctuary Santa Agusta" is a 30 minute hike up a steep incline and has a lovely cafe and views at the end.
Plenty of weekend markets, hiking trails, lakes, places to eat out, and best of all, you'll probably be the only tourists there.
If you get fed up, you're close enough to take the train to Verona, Venice, and Milan. It's three hours drive to Austria, and Slovenia.
It's very underrated
>>
Is there anything in NW Italy worth checking out and spending a few days at? How is Turin? I'm interested in smaller towns rather than big cities.
>>
>>2235843
Keyed, thank you brother checking out now.

Ticino. It's like going to Italy without having to suffer through existence in Italy.
>>
>>2237505
Anything good west of that? Like in Piedmont or Aosta Valley
>>
Ok italabro's Im the original op just finished the first draft of my 20,000 final essay and thinking more practically about traveling next week.

Im Gonna be flying into Rome After which I'mj looking for a town in Tuscany then a town of the west coast before traveling to Bologna and then milan and am liking the look of either >>2235843 or >>2237505

What would you recommend for tuscany and the west coast.

Much love, very excited :]
>>
>>2239658
Are you going on a trip after finishing your uni degree? Finished my 25000 word final report today and started looking for a place to go. I was thinking of doing the same but have nobody to go with.
>>
>>2239666
Yeah exactly , just need to go somewhere, having been locked in my room for 6 weeks. Well done on the 25 , 20 has killed me can't imagine doing any more.

In terms of Traveling alone, I would give it a try. I loved it, can't imagine traveling with others till I have a wife. You are so much more independent on your own, can make everyday your own and not worry about ensuring other people are happy with the day. I'd go for it, since you are on your own , if you don't like it you can always just fly back.
>>
>>2237505
Ticino is nice but can be filled with Swiss tourists.
If you want to explore Italian Switzerland you can also try the southern valleys of Grisons like the Bernina Valley (known for the scenic train line) or the Val Müstair in the tri-country area of South Tyrol.
>>
>>2232645

>Aquileia

absolutely. Some of the nicest Roman ruins you're ever going to see

>Mantova

another excellent suggestion

>>2232629
If you like hiking, the Dolomites are hard to beat. The part of the range in Veneto is arguably the most scenic, and you can catch a cable car to the top (not the actual summit, but a short walk from it) of Marmolada. Prepare to be amazed. Also, in the Cadore area you'll get to appreciate both Pelmo and Lagazuoi, and there are more hiking trails than you can count.

For some truly off-the-path stuff: there's a village near Borca di Cadore, a small architectural marvel built by ENI (Italy's fossil fuel state conglomerate) decades ago to house their employees:

How good are the italian trains? will I need to book tickets weeks in advance to get a decent price, between the major cities, or can I just show up on the same day?
>>
>>2236045

Turin is really, really nice
>>
>>2241351

Better book in advance highspeed trains. Italotreno is cheaper than the national company. Don't get a pass or any of that shit.
>>
>>2241632
thanks

When are covid entry restrictions going to drop? I want to go to Naples?

Going to Florence / Firenze in september, anyone have cool day trips that are doable by bus or train? Will be going to Fiesole but it's like 10km away from Florence, very close but I might try to make it for the same day when I arrive

How's Rome for someone that's unvaccinated lads?

The green pass to enter restaurants/tourist stuff is gone as of May 1. To enter the country you need a negative antigen test within 48h if not vaxxmaxxed
>>
>>2242373
> To enter the country you need a negative antigen test within 48h if not vaxxmaxxed
Any info when is this going to drop?
>>
>>2242373
Any vaccine requirements if you want to work there? Asking cause my gf going uni there for a year
>>
>>2242465
idk, the gov is scrapping mask requirements next month, so they very well may get rid of test requirements then too
>>2242469
as far as I know, the green pass only is enforced now in healthcare situations but uni admissions could be different
>>
>>2232629
Chianti has a bunch of cool towns in it,same with Umbria, Greve and Sienna are nice
>>
>>2235507
limone imo. the western side is way more spectacular than the eastern side
>>
>>2241628
>>2236045
yeah i also like torino a lot, surprisingly. it will have the air of piss and mess all over since its a big metropolitan city, but its worth for the night life and the architecture. its like a better paris
>>
Anyone who's left Italy for the U.S recently know how stringent they are with testing? I need a negative rapid test to board my flight, and I'm thinking I won't pass. Are pharmacies chill enough that they let you self administer and they'll sign off on it?
>>
Any advise on traveling with public transit in Italy? Any pass or card i can purchase in advance? I'm going to Pisa early June, but heard that there's not much to see besides the tower and cathedral. I'm considering visiting Lucca or Florence. Any tips are welcome.
>>
>>2246206
dont know much about passes/cards but trenitalia website is easy to use and I thought tickets were cheap.
>>
>>2237505
>Ticino
I suggest the Malcantone area, especially Vezio.
>>
>>2232629
Go to Jesolo beach near Venice
>>
>>2239200
Visit Turin
>>
>>2246569
for maximum 2 days though, one for Monte Lema climbing and the other for going around.
after it becomes boring, there's literally nothing here.
