5 things Indians should experience in Italy
– Visiting Cinque Terre
At the top of the lost of 5 Things Indians should experience in Italy but don’t is Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The villages are constructed on cliff faces and these terraces look right down into the sea. Cars are not allowed in the villages and a small train and a walking path connect them
– Staying at a vineyard in Tuscany
Tuscany is an area often ignored by Indians despite its proximity to Florence. Probably the best way to experience Tuscany is to stay in a vineyard or in one of the small villages. Villa / Vineyard stay accommodation is plentiful and they are a short drive from Florence or Siena
– Self Driving on the Amalfi Coast in South of Italy or Sicily
While driving in the Italian cities is next to impossible (think India), outside the cities, there are some great driving routes. Arguably the best driving route is the drive along the Amalfi Coast in the South of Italy. Sheer cliff faces, water so blue that they hurt, Roman ruins and traditional Italian villages, make for a great driving experience. 3 to 5 days in Sicily is also a great option.
– Visiting the Borghese in Rome.
Everybody from India visits the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel. Increasingly many Indians also visit the Uffuzi in Florence. However, the Borghese is nearly always ignored. Borghese is exceptional in its compactness and its ability to make you understand Italians art and sculpture through the ages. To a newcomer to the arts, Borghese will allow you to appreciate Italy’s finest without boring you or killing your feet
