A logical place to start the best Italy itinerary is in Venice, given it’s location and ease of getting to due to popularity of airport.

The floating city is one of the most unique cities in the world and a place that should not be missed.

It has no roads and is instead made up of canals full of boats and gondolas taking lovers and friends on scenic rides through the almost-unreal landscape.  It’s also rumored to be sinking, so you better get there before it’s gone!

If you are able, I recommend spending one day visiting Burano. It is an easy day trip from Venice and the most colorful little island you’ll ever see!
