On your own, while walking through Italian cities, you’ll always want to keep your camera ready.
Here are the most walkable cities in Italy and why.
Who wouldn’t want to walk around the fashion capital of the world? It’s so fun to see the shopfronts and keep an eye open for new style trends. Some outfits on the local Italians may surprise you, but several fashions you might just be brave enough to try! Just be careful watching your budget while shopping, because some shops can be tough on the price tags.
Florence is a breathtaking city in Italy with tiny alleyways and hidden cafés. You’ll be walking faster than the traffic-jammed vehicles in this location! You can follow your nose to some fresh pasta or wander along the sparkly riverside. Bring your camera! You won’t care looking like a tourist here because you just will not be able to help yourself from clicking away.
Capturing glimpses of history is the best reason to walk around Rome! Missing details of the sights would be a shame through a bus window or squished within a guided tour group.Wear some comfortable shoes and bring your sunscreen, then you’ll be ready to learn so much about this mecca of arts, science, and culture!
Guess what else? You HAVE to walk in Venice, Italy. There is no other way. Vehicles aren’t allowed inside the city limits for a good reason: the whole city is built upon the water! There’s also no need to pay lots of cash to ride a gondola (unless you would like a photo for your Instagram) because the city is an exciting maze of streets and canals you’ll want to take in for yourself by foot. Having a map handy might be a good idea since many streets come to a dead end, but it’s also fun to get lost and wee where you might end up! In Venice, you’ll find the finest handmade leather products and artistically intricate Venetian masks.
