There are lots of amazing cities in Italy to explore. So, to help you find the right city for you, we’ve popped a list of five from the very north to the south of Italy.

Take a look at some places and delve into our much more detailed list of cities in Italy, here. 

1.) Florence

Arguably the best gelatos and pizzas across the land – but then again I’m biased. Florence is the most idyllic Italian holiday destination with an easy pace of life and beautiful sights and history.

And as an extra bonus for Florence, it’s only a little bit over 1 hour away from Pisa.

This all means you can visit Pisa as well when you’re staying in Florence. Pisa’s relatively small so a day trip should be enough to get in the sights, too.

The gelatos aren’t too bad either.
