Want to Go to Rome? Here are 5 Things That You Should Know

During our first trip to Italy last summer of 2015, my husband and I explored the city and got the chance to see museums for three full days and it was an awesome experience for me. This year, we got another chance to explore the country with some of our friends and relatives and this time, our experience taught us a lot of things that we hadn't experienced during our first visit.

Italy is one of my favorite countries. Every city that we visited - Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, Siena, Pisa and Montecatini Terme – is oozing with the Renaissance charm, from the small streets, restaurants and even the architecture of its buildings.  

Despite reports of stealing, burglary and scams, tourism in Italy is still good as I noticed the streets are still packed with tourists. I definitely learned a lot from my second experience exploring Italy. Let me share with you some tips that you might find helpful if you want to explore Italy…

A Jam-Packed 8-Day Trip to Italy: Milan

Husband and I just came back from our trip to Italy with our family. It was our first time to travel together outside America.

We bought our package from Gate 1 travel, which includes our round trip flight to Milan, hotel for 6 nights at Montecatini Terme and a hotel for 1 night in Milan, and also 3 car rentals for our group.

In addition to our hotel in Montecatini, we also got a separate accommodation in Rome and Venice to avoid the long drive.

We landed in Milan, Monday at 8 am. It was supposed to be a perfect time for us to explore Milan early but unfortunately somebody took my sister in law's luggage by mistake so we stayed until 12 noon.

Day 1- Milano

We had lunch at Princi Bakery and then proceeded to explore the city. We went to Piazza del Duomo first to see the beautiful Milan Cathedral and then some went shopping at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Later that evening we went to Sforza Castle and then took pictures at Arco della Pace.
