Indulge a Sweet Tooth With Sticky Torrone
Italy is one of those places that ticks the boxes for absolutely every kind of food lover. If you tend to get more excited by desserts than your main course, this is a country that certainly will not disappoint. While tiramisu and gelato are famous the world over, your trip to Italy gives you the perfect opportunity to let your sweet tooth branch out and taste some new treats. Torrone is an Italian nougat, that’s sweet, sticky, and filled with almonds. We can’t get enough of it.
Trek to the Peak of Corno Grande
Italy is a country that has it all, and if you want to burn off some of the calories you’ve ingested from all the delicious pizza and gelato that abounds, the good news is that there are a tonne of incredible hikes, and one hike that should be a good challenge for adventurers and fitness lovers is a trek up the Corno Grande. In fact, this mountain is the highest in the Italian peninsula, and once you get to the peak there is a flat plateau where you can relax and take in the exceptional views.
Stroll Through a Venetian Gothic Palace
The Doge’s Palace in Venice has to be one of the most recognisable buildings anywhere in Europe, a castle that was then converted into a place, with most of what you can see today dating back to the 14th century. The palace now exists as a museum, but the art work that you see inside was the actual art work used to decorate the palace, and not placed there afterwards. Stroll through the grand apartments and you’ll feel totally immersed in opulence.
Enjoy a Day Dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci was the ultimate Renaissance man. As well as producing works of art that are appreciated all over the world, he was also a very accomplished scientist and engineer, and you can learn more about this side of this life at the Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan. There is plenty to interact with in the museum, so it’s a great place to bring the kids, and to have some learn something on their trip to Italy.
Explore the Frasassi Caves
If you are the kind of person who likes to explore exciting landscapes in foreign countries, don’t just stick to the beaches and mountains of Italy, and take the time to explore some of its stunning caves as well. Among the most famous of these are the Frasassi Caves, a karst cave system in the largely unvisited Genga region. This cave system was only discovered in the 1970s, and is rich in water, stalactites, and stalagmites.
