When planning an itinerary for travelling, Italy has many cities that lend themselves to and extensive exploration. Two such cities are Venice and Naples - very different, but both spectacular in their own right. Be sure to give both these Italian gems your undivided attention and you will be well rewarded.
As the capital of the Veneto region, Venice is a must see for anyone travelling to Italy. The canal city sits on a marshy lagoon and is made up of a group of islands that, some say, are sinking slightly more each year. Despite this shadow, the city itself is truly magical. It actually has a history that dates back beyond what is considered to be the traditional founding, when the first church was built on the site in 421AD. With palaces and secret nooks, quirky side streets and a busy water thoroughfare, it is no wonder the entire city is named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
