The most interesting cities in Italy: TOP-10 from BlogoItaliano. Part I

If Greece is famous for its islands, then Italy is a city. On the Apennine Peninsula there are many beautiful cities that are interesting from any point of view: whether it be culture, history or architecture. Traveling through the cities of Italy is best done by train, because the local driving conditions may seem extreme to many, and the Italian railway system is very extensive and inexpensive. But it seems we are distracted. It's time to go directly to the rating.

No. 10 Genoa

Located on the northwest coast of Italy, Genoa is an important port hub since ancient times. Thanks to the developed trade, the city did not lack money, and the authorities very far-sightedly invested them in the development of urban infrastructure. Now Genoa is on the rise again, and its status is already indicated by the fact that in 2004 the city was chosen as the European Capital of Culture. Among the interesting places in Genoa, it is worth noting the impressive aquarium, the intriguing surroundings of the port and the historical center, which is believed to be the largest medieval complex in Europe.

№9 Perugia

Perugia - the capital of the Umbria region - is mentioned in chronicles dating back to the 9th century BC. Its history is rich and cosmopolitan, and the city, like many of its Italian counterparts, is famous for its historical and cultural monuments. Even in the Renaissance, Perugia became famous for the artists of the so-called Umbrian school, the most famous of which are Perugino and Rafael Santi. Today, Perugia is a fortified city on a ridge of hills, from where a stunning view of the surroundings and Lake Trasimen opens. The city has a number of interesting museums and a beautiful central square. Both universities in Perugia are world famous, and her University for Foreigners is without a doubt one of the best places in the country to learn Italian.

№8 Bologna

Bologna - the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region - is strong in the well-being of its inhabitants. Due to its favorable location, the traditions of industry and education, Bologna has always been a fairly well-maintained city. In addition to wealth in Italy itself, Bologna is also famous for its beauty, cuisine and left-wing political views. The city has a very remarkable historical medieval center and several beautiful squares. The University of Bologna is known as one of the oldest (if not the most ancient) in Europe and dates back to the distant 1088

Some time Turin even managed to visit the capital of Italy

№7 Turin

After the completion of Risorgimento (1861), the administrative center of the Piedmont-Turin region remained the capital of the united Italy for almost 4 years, and over this short period of time the city managed to acquire significant architectural structures. However, before the XIX century, Turin played by no means the last role in the history of Europe, being the capital of the powerful Savoy dynasty. Today Turin is famous for its FIAT concern, numerous museums, elegant shopping and good restaurants. It makes sense to pay attention to outstanding examples of the Baroque style in the architecture of buildings and palaces. In 2006, the city became the capital of the Winter Olympic Games.

№6 Verona

Verona, without a doubt, brought the greatest fame to the story of Romeo and Juliet, although even if there hadn’t been, the city would still have made sense to visit. Among the architectural sights of Verona, it is worth highlighting the Ancient Roman Arena, which is the 3rd largest in Italy and currently serving as a natural venue for the Opera Festival. In addition, Verona has a remarkable medieval center, relatively well-preserved ancient Roman ruins or an interesting palace complex. Verona is the fourth most visited city in Italy and is definitely worth it for 1-2 days if you are traveling in the northern part of the country.
