Italy has been nominated as one of the top ten places to visit and it's no wonder! With its enriched culture, strong history and diversity, Italy is a must see country. At Auto Europe we want to help make your trip a little easier and more cost effective with these top five free Italian attractions that can't be missed!
The Duomo Cathedral is one of the most famous landmarks of Italy and has spectacular architecture. Located in Florence, entry is free, which is a steal, as not only is the exterior exquisite so is the interior. Open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm on weekdays it should not be missed on your next trip to Florence.
Milan is the fashion capital of the world, and the famous street of Via Montenapoleone, located in Milan, houses world famous designers such as Prada. For any fashionista this is the street to be on, even if it is just window shopping.
The Trevi Fountain is a slice of history, culture and beautiful sculptural work located in the heart of Rome. It is legend in Italy that if you stand with your back to the fountain and throw a coin with your right arm over your left shoulder then you will certainly return to Rome. This legend is not only beautiful but also helpful as the coins tossed into the fountain are collected and donated to charity.
The beautiful city of Venice floats on water. The city is juxtaposed to any other city you will come across thanks to its historical aspects, enriched culture and beautiful architecture. Although it may seem silly, simply making your way around the city is an amazing experience as the people, buildings and way of life is so diverse to any other city you would have seen and be familiar with.
Although not necessarily an attraction, the Italians are one of a kind. The Italian people have so much passion within them that it's inspiring - fashion, architecture, food you can feel the passion as you walk around and talk to locals. The Italians also live by a very simple rule: Dolce Far Niente, this means The Sweetness of Doing Nothing. This is an important rule to live by, as it reminds you of the little things in life that can be taken for granted. However it has more meaning, it also teaches you to love one another and spend time with family and friends, even if you're just stargazing the skies of Rome.
