From the Alps to sun-kissed beaches of Sicily, Italy boasts countless archeological and historic sites, charming landscapes, mouthwatering cuisine, and some of the finest art collections in the world. Regardless of what you choose to put on your itinerary, you'll get a taste of "la dolce vita" by touring this amazing country. Things to do in Italy range from visiting landmarks of Western civilization like the Colosseum and Basilica di San Pietro, to climbing the summit of Vesuvius, the only active volcano on the European mainland. To feel like a true Italian, ride a Vespa through the streets of Rome, nibble your way around Florentine markets, or sip chianti in the eponymous region.
