Not sure where to spend your “Italian Summer”? Let’s look at 5 magical – and secret – places that describe perfectly the beauty of Italy.
Let’s look together at 5 very special places that might surprise you and make you experience an unusual summer.
The first magical place, the first location dedicated to your “Italian Summer,” is Castel Gandolfo. A few kilometers away from Rome, overlooking Lake Albano, here appears a unique place.
Castel Gandolfo is known for being immersed in greenery, surrounded by Italian history and tradition. Jump into its waters to forget any worries.
Furore belongs to the extraordinary landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, the true pride of Campania.
This time we are talking about a place as small as it is fascinating, marked by the presence of the crystal blue sea. A vacation in Furore will allow you to take a closer look at the beauty of Campania and its very long tradition.
If you want to get away from the sea and choose to experience a summer of culture, you cannot miss Vipiteno. Located in Trentino Alto Adige, in the province of Bolzano, Vipiteno is the northernmost city in all of Italy.
Small, lightly populated and rich in history, it is the ideal place for those who want to relax and distract themselves. You will be wrapped in memories of the past, the stories of families who have lived in Vipiteno for hundreds of years.
In northern Italy, a short distance from the city of Milan, here is Sulzano; a locality full of charm, accentuated by the presence of beautiful Lake Iseo.
Although small and isolated, the town of Sulzano has everything one could want for the summer. The lake provides the backdrop for typical summertime relaxation, while its proximity to major cities allows for anytime fun.
We end with Scilla, a seaside destination on the border with Calabria.
Scilla, which owes its name to a particular mythological creature, is the ideal place for those who wish to explore Sicily (easy to reach starting from the city). The beauty of its waters is comparable to few other Italian landscapes, a perfect place for those who want to discover unseen corners of Italy.
