5 Unforgettable Activities in Italy


While we all love taking trips with our kids, Italy is somewhere you may want to experience with the adults in your life. If the kids are joining you might at least want to wait until they are a bit older.

For those looking for a rejuvenating getaway with your spouse, you must consider Italy. This incredible country has so much to offer. With delectable foods and wines, an ancient and glorious history, and beautiful serene landscapes, you will never want to leave. When in Rome or other parts of Italia, these are some of the must-see attractions.



1. Wine Tasting in Tuscany
You cannot go to Italy without having wine. As a hardworking mom, you deserve it. Driving around the Tuscan wine country will provide you with some of the most beautiful views you will ever see.

While you can join a tour bus, you may want the freedom of having your own car. Consider renting a vehicle from a site like www.carrentals.co.uk/ to have total control of your itinerary and wine-tasting adventure.

2. Climb Mount Vesuvius
You’ve likely learned about Pompeii’s destruction from a volcanic eruption by Mount Vesuvius. Now that the volcano is dormant, you can climb its summit to see one of the most breathtaking views on the planet.

While the trek is challenging, people of different ability levels can generally conquer it. The crater formations you will see at the top are unlike many other peaks you have likely seen before. Mount Vesuvius is a locale you must explore if you are in the mood for adventure.

3. Experience the Coliseum and Roman Forum
Take a step back in time by walking through some of the historic sites in Rome. Walking through the Coliseum will help you to imagine the excitement of the gladiator games. As you stroll through the Roman Forum, you can envision shops, religious ceremonies, and political events unfolding before you.

These structures give incredible insight into a civilization that existed thousands of years ago. Rome is one of the most popular destinations in Italy for a reason.

4. Eat Pizza in Naples
If you’re a foodie, then a visit to the birthplace of pizza is a must. As the story goes, pizza was first prepared for King Umberto I and his wife Queen Margherita in 1889. Cheese pizzas with tomatoes and basil still bear this queen’s name.

With pizza parlors on every block, you will find no shortage of this beloved food. Once your belly is full, you can explore the town and surrounding areas to find shops, ruins, museums, and more. Naples is quite close to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, so you could easily combine these attractions.

5. Ride a Gondola in Venice
When you think of Venice, it’s hard not to picture its iconic gondolas. Taking a gondola ride is one of the most unique ways to explore a city. You must experience this one-of-a-kind form of transportation to believe it.

Even though Venice is rather far from most of the other major cities in Italy, it is still a must-see. Its unique architecture and storied history make it unlike any other place in the world.
Even though our kids are our whole world, sometimes we need a few moments without them so that we can be our best for them. Taking some time for yourself is not selfish. It is necessary so that you can parent to your fullest potential. If you are feeling burnt out, then a trip to a new and exciting place like Italy may be exactly what you need to get back to being your best self. Buon viaggio!
