Things to do in Italy

March 03, 2018




Hi everyone! 


I'm finally writing on blog! Sorry for the short pause, I've had a lot of boring obligations and unfortunately, I still have them. But, let's do something here! I think that the biggest dream of my life is going to come true. I've always wanted to visit a beautiful country which has a boot shape. The country of pasta, smell of the best pizzas in the world, and most beautiful city of water - Venice. My trip to this amazing place will be in October this year. I cannot describe how I feel now, so inspiration for this post came exactly from my heart. In this post I will write some kind of TO DO list, but list of things to do in Italy.  If you're planning to go there, this article could be interesting for you.


1. Speak Italian with Italians

Okay, I don't know is this a good idea, but I want so much to talk to someone from Italy, It would be great challenge for me because I'm trying to learn this amazing language. I hope I will be done with It before I go to Italy. Ciao, come stai?  😁






2.  Try Italian cuisine

This is my favorite part! Italian cuisine is one of my favorites. I said that I don't like pizza too much, but I think I'll change my mind when I try real Italian pizza in Naples – There’s nothing like eating something as universally well-known as pizza in the place where it was born, and for that you’ve got to go to Naples. I adore Panettone - that's their traditional Christmas cake, and I ate It a year ago, It's divine! My goal is to try Panna Cotta, Bruschetta, Gelato, and famous Italian wine.  Also, who wouldn't want to drink a coffee at some gorgeous cafe in Venice? My choice is Caffe Florian. This Neo-Baroque coffee house in the center of Piazza San Marco dates back from 1720, making it perhaps the oldest café in the world. It often hosts contemporary artists in conjunction with the Biennial, making for a truly lavish interior. You may have to pay 10 euros for a cappuccino, but you’ll feel like an aristocrat doing it.

3. Marvel at Michelangelo 

You can’t visit Italy without paying homage to the country’s artistic hero, Michelangelo. Head to the Sistine Chapel in Rome and breathe in the immense beauty of the ceiling — it’s worth getting a crick in your neck. The sculpture of David is at the Accademia Gallery in Florence. Anyone who has seen the iconic work “has no need to see anything else by another sculptor, living or dead”, as painter and author Giorgio Vasari’s famous quote puts it.

4. Take THAT selfie in Pisa

You might tell yourself that you’re going to resist, that you’ll be different from the legions of tourists who have come here before you... but you won’t. You’ll stand dozens of feet away from this magnificent, turreted, 14,500-tonne edifice — which started to lean in 1178, due to the soft land it was built on — and pose to look as if your hands are propping it up. The tower took 344 years to build, and in 1964 a team of engineers came together to stabilise it with a counterweight. Now it still leans, but it’s totally safe to climb to the top.







5. Visit Santa Maria della Salute basilica in Venice

It is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice, Italy. I've heard for this gorgeous building when I've read a divine love poem by Serbian writer Laza Kostić. When he was in Italy, at the moment he saw Santa Maria della Salute, he heard that his soulmate, beautiful Lenka, died. Their was love passionate, honest and timeless , but they weren't in relationship, because of the age difference. This information broke his heart and he decided to write a poem that is exactly named same as this gorgeous basilica.

[...]

Two forces struggled for mastery in me,
Mine against heart, against flesh’s yoke,
How long did they fight in this awful way,
Like the tempest against the old oak?
Finally passion grew weak in the fray,
And the grooved brain made its last attack.
You’re the hinge of the mind; you hold it fast,
You, Maria della Salute, Blessed

My mind consticed, compressed my own heart;
I fled its pleasures, mad in my flight.
Oh, how I fled, so hurt at the start.
Cold rose round my sun and quenchead its light.
Stars darkened, and tears burst from heaven’s part;
‘Twas the world’s end, Judgment’s awful night,
The crack of doom, the world’s trial at the last,
O, Maria della Salute, Blessed.

[...]





6.  Buy some makeup

Honestly, shopping is also important thing to do in Italy. Especially buying perfumes and famous Kiko makeup. I want to try some Kiko products so I can't wait to go there and buy them! Did you use this brand? Tell me your experience by writing in comments below.





7. Gondola Ride in Venice

The most important thing to do in Venice! Gondola ride is very beautiful, all those canals, bridges, architecture you can see from gondola, isn't it wonderful?





8. Overdose on Renaissance art at the Uffizi Galery in Florence 

The Uffizi Gallery is on just about every must-do list for Italy, and there’s a good reason for it. Nowhere else on earth will you see such an amazing collection of Italian Renaissance art, all contained in gorgeous buildings once roamed by Medicis. The artists on display here are like the rock stars of Florence.

Perhaps I’ll take up the challenge again someday and make another list. Until then, I want to know your thoughts – what do you think of my list? What did I leave out that you would have put in? What did I list that you would take off? And finally, if you had to list your top 5 things everyone should do in Italy, what would they be?
