    For the first time it's better to take round trip.After that I decided which cities I wouldn't visit again - Rome, Napoli and Florence :)

    Mum's cousin owns a house near Turin [was originally in Arezzo], a close friend is Sicilian, and another friend lives in Florence. I've been to Italy a couple times over the years.

    Yes, my first visit was to Rome, in 1971. I was 18 with a very healthy appetite and thought the food was divine! Especially Spaghetti Amatriciana, my favourite. Although it never tastes good when I eat it here in Britain.
    I visited Rome again in the 70's and that time we also stayed for a few nights at Picinisco, in the province of Frosinone. Beautiful mountain country, evening walks in October were a delight. I agree with former posts about the mountain people being introverts, although they were very pleasant and accommodating and also - something very strong and intriguing about them.
    In the 90's I visited Naples, Sorrento and Positano. Also beautiful, but very crowded at the time we went.
    I don't travel now due to medical reasons, but I would have loved to explore the north of the country.

    No, but I want to visit. Maybe even live there for a little bit if I like it.

    Well, I was there as a kid with my family , we drove through the country and took a boat from Bari to Albania so I dont remember much. And dont consider it experiencing the country itself.

    I've been to Italy once; it was very pleasant riding through the beautiful countryside. We stopped in Venezia, Bologna (where I had the best pizza ever), Firenze and Rome. I think my favourite place was Venezia. It's so lovely and the atmosphere is special, quite poetic and melancholic. I would also say a bit gloomy, but I think it's just because I'm influenced by horrific movies such as The Comfort of Strangers and Don't look now, which are set in Venezia.
    My Mother went on a cruise around Sicily years ago. She didn't see much of it since they were at sea most of the time, but it was a wonderful journey.
    I'd love to visit the Gulf of Napoli (esp. Pompei), the Amalfi coast, as well as Procida and Capri.

    They're all spectacular. I've said before that if I got a terrible health diagnosis, I'd want to spend my last days in Ravello so I could go the gardens of the Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo every day. Of course, it would be even better if I could buy the Villa Cimbrone and ban all weddings there for the duration. :)
    Villa Cimbrone:





    The Infinity Terrace:



    What I like particularly is that the promontory upon which the gardens sit, and a few nice little restaurants and small hotels too, is that it's a fifteen minute walk from the village. No exceptions: no cars, motos, nothing. That's why it's so peaceful.

    We have some threads on the entire area. This is one of them:
