Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Near the base of the landmark Rialto Bridge, the historic Rialto Market is well worth a wander. Seek it out in the early morning when it provides an authentic local experience (and awesome social-media ops), with fishmongers hawking their fresh...

ABC, Fondamenta Toletta, 1169, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
Osteria Enoteca ai Artisti in Venice served the best pasta I have ever tasted. Once wasn't enough—I had to go back to this place again during my stay in Venice. The osteria boasts a great view, great atmosphere, great people, and most importantly,...

Fondamenta Nani, 992, 30123 Dorsoduro, Venezia VE, Italy
If you are in Venice, you will surely get familiar with local 'Spritz' (a fizzy, refreshing aperitif) and cicchetti, or small snacks. If you want to have a local experience, be sure not to miss Cantine del Vino Già Schiavi while walking around La...

Santa Croce, 2063, 30135 Venezia VE, Italy
Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo is a charming 10-room hotel that transports visitors back to 18th-century Venice thanks to its gilded antiques, Murano chandeliers, rich fabrics and palazzo marble floors. The hotel has modern conveniences, too (such as...

Calle Chibecchi, 521, 30142 Venezia VE, Italy
This tiny Venetian bacaro (bar) is so popular that many of its patrons don’t even make it inside. Instead, they cluster around the entrance drinking wine. Sample cicchetti (bar snacks) that the locals come for, especially the meatballs. Calle del...
Save Place
Verona, VR, Italy
Verona is often buried in its Romeo & Juliet lore, however the city has much more than a classic romance to offer. Truly shaped under Roman rule, at times it can seem like a younger sister to Rome, especially with the Colosseum-esque Arena in the...
Save Place
37022 Fumane, VR, Italy
Outside the city of Verona lies the Valpolicella wine region, home of the wines of the same name and the full bodied Amarone. This area is not heavily touristed, at least not by Americans. And it is beautiful: hilly, slightly mountainous, with...
Save Place
This bridge was built by the Romans and dates back to 100 BC. Four of the arches were destroyed in WWII by the Germans as they retreated, but were rebuilt by the residents of Verona from the rubble in the river shortly after. Just on the other...
Save Place
One of the things I looked forward to on my trip to Italy last year was visiting as many gelaterias as I could. And so every evening after dinner, and a few afternoons after lunch, my husband and I made our way to the local gelateria to taste what...
Save Place
Viale Battaglione Val Leogra, 44, 36100 Vicenza VI, Italy
I found that I preferred the small towns of Italy as opposed to the vast city of Rome. Vicenza was no exception. This charming town offers a plethora of options for history, art, and architecture lovers. The Teatro Olimpico: Designed by Andrea...
Save Place
Piazza Erbe, 28, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
A 500 year old hanging whale bone that will supposedly only fall when a man who has never told a lie walks beneath it marks the entrance to the Piazza Erbe, where there is a large outdoor market selling everything from food to crafts.
Save Place
Piazza Eremitani, 8, 35121 Padova PD, Italy
Built in 1307, Giotto's Arena Chapel, aka Scorvegni Chapel, should not be missed when visiting the Veneto. In Padua, it is often overlooked, which can mean smaller crowds during certain times and seasons. After a video in English and Italian...
Save Place
Via della Costa, 1, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
View from the highest building in Verona. You can walk or take the elevator for beautiful views of the red tile roofs of Verona. You can see the tower from all over the city but the real attraction is what you see from the tower. Entrance is just...
Save Place
Piazza San Zeno, 2, 37123 Verona VR, Italy
Beautiful cloisters and interesting crypt make this a special place in the lovely small city of Verona.
Save Place
Piazza del Santo, 11, 35123 Padova PD, Italy
This massive church was one of the most impressive in size, architecture, and collection of relics—for the art that is within and surrounding the building. Before you head inside, almost as an afterthought hidden in between kiosks selling St....
Save Place
Via Sottoriva, 9/A, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
A great venue in Verona for enjoying simple Italian fare and sipping wine under the medieval arches. Especially nice on a warm summer evening for people watching. Try the gorgonzola melted over polenta.
Save Place
Cannaregio, 2893, 30121 Venezia VE, Italy
When you tire of canals and churches, head to the old Jewish ghetto of Venice where you'll find many quiet, pleasant alleys to meander through. Be sure to take the guided tour of the old temples because tour guides can offer more information than...

Padua, Province of Padua, Italy
By far the best place I found for a quick, delicious lunch in Padua, Italy, is Brek Foccaceria on the beautiful Piazzetta Garzeria (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Focacceria-Brek-di-Padova/133180920044536). The local students especially like the...

Via Lorenzo Luzzo, 23, 32032 Feltre BL, Italy
Along a country road and surrounded by Tuscany’s luscious rolling hills and vineyards lies Il Palagiaccio, an unassuming marketplace that is pure magic. I wander into the store that is filled with all of Italy’s finest: it's a wonderland of...

What could be better than a stroll through the vineyards and olive trees at sunset? How about strolling through the vineyards and olive trees at sunset in the not-so-touristy Valpolicella wine region of northern Italy? This area of the Veneto...

Via Costa D' Oro, 7, 37011 Bardolino VR, Italy
I arrived to Italy’s Lake Garda met by rays of sun shining through the cypress-lined walkway and birds frolicking in song- and how could they not be, in a place as beautiful as this. Costa d'Oro is an a water-front Italian villa, so enjoy your...

Verona, VR, Italy
The best way to get to know a city is by foot. Or bike.
Save Place
36015 Schio, Province of Vicenza, Italy
During my cycling trip in North Italy, I visited Schio, a little town at the foot of the Alps. Since I'd never heard about it before, I didn't know what to expect. But it left me speechless. Stone paved streets, old style houses, little coffee...

Save Place
Corso Castelvecchio, 2, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
As a westerner I had a hard time remembering and overcoming the fact that in Italy you can buy a bottle of delicious Bardolino red for 3 Euros, head to your nearest church steps or attraction of choice, and close the evening in the company of...
Save Place
Piazza Vescovado, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
This was built in the 1100's, and there are two other churches connected to it that were built in the 9th century and 12th century. Music is often playing inside the church, which makes it a peaceful resting spot as you go through Verona.
Save Place
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
I had been skeptical of the Venetian gondola ride, thinking it too touristy and overpriced. Last summer, however, I discovered what is so special about this Venetian tradition. A gondola ride provides a unique view of Venice from the quiet...

Dolomites, 32023 Rocca Pietore, Province of Belluno, Italy
An Alpine Adventure awaits and is only a quick day trip from Venice. Working with a private driver, our small group of family and friends traveled to this breathtaking region for amazing sight seeing and a little hiking. It was a quick day trip...

Via Catinaccio, 15, 37029 San Pietro in Cariano di Valpolicella, VR, Italy
Need a villa for 10 people? This one is pet friendly and offers lots of room for a group of people. Not ideal if you want something more upscale although details like the ceilings and garden keep your stay interesting.
