Italy Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 92%, Italy stands out as one of the world's most popular destinations for PlanetHoppers! With such places as the incomparable canals of Venice and such world famous icons as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy is literally packed with things to see and do - so much in fact that it's hard to decide even where to start (but we'll have a crack at it for you!). How about Rome? As perhaps the most important city in human history, Rome offers an amazing array of historical options, from the Colosseum, where gladiators dueled to the death, to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, where PlanetHoppers! and locals come to mingle or just people watch. However, the list of options outside of these world famous cities is also extensive and includes the classic journey down along the Amalfi Coast - one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world - and the ruins of Pompeii, in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius. Considering all of this, you can begin to understand why Italy provides everything you need to fill up a standard vacation and much, much more.
