Which are the five best cities in Italy? A Very difficult question which I'm going to do my best to answer .
You won't agree with all of them so please let me know your favorite Italian cities or what makes Italy so special for you.
Being Italian I know how passionate people can get about their home city so no doubt I will get some rude comments too - especially from those fiery Neopolitans .
If it was about putting your own city first my family town of Vicenza would be top! Still if I did that my very rational, sensible and not Italian hubby would have never let me hear the end of it.
The five best cities listed are in no particular order. You will
notice many are cities in northern Italy but that bias is perhaps
because I have lived for over ten years in the north of Italy and anyway
south of Rome there are few big cities I like - I really can't stand
Naples in particular. A beautiful setting yes, but the people do there
best to ruin that... now I'm in trouble:)
1) Venice Italy
The most romantic city on earth, nowhere is quite like Venice
Italy and Venice is certainly the best of all the cities in northern
Italy if not the best city in Italy.
The city of kings,
Turin or Torino
is an elegant city full of palaces and some of the best food in Italy.
Probably my least favorite of the five,
is still a great place.
The city is wonderful and the Roman Arena is on my list
of things that make Italy so special.
Last but certainly not least is Rome. Perhaps the greatest city on earth, chaotic and yet wonderful.
Which cities nearly made the list?
Lucca, Urbino, Sienna and Bari were right there in the final list.
Naples and Milan weren't even considered. These are two cities I really don't like at all and I would not even include them in the top twenty.

If on the other hand you are looking for Cheap Holidays in Italy then regions like Calabria and Abruzzo are good choices.
Is it a place, the food or something else, what makes Italy so wonderful for you?
