There are some places that set themselves up well for “top 10″ lists.
Italy is not one of them. Not by a long shot.
In most of the big tourist destinations, trying to squeeze all the best sights down to a meager ten is nigh unto impossible if not entirely ridiculous. And even in some of the off-the-beaten-path stops there are often more than 10 things that could be considered must-do items.
So why have I given in and done a few top 10 lists for different places in Italy? Because, for one thing, I know that’s how many people like to plan their trips – and I am to please. For another, however, it was kind of a fun challenge in a couple of cases to try to limit myself to only 10 things on a list. I could easily have turned the more difficult ones into “top 15″ or “top 20″ lists, but that wouldn’t have been a challenge!
Here, then, are my top 10 lists for Italy (in alphabetical order by destination).
- Top 10 Things to Do in Florence
- Top 10 Things to Do in Milan
- Top 10 Things to Do in Naples
- Top 10 Things to Do in Palermo
- Top 10 Things to Do in Rome
- Top 10 Things to Do in Sardinia
- Top 10 Things to Do in Venice
It’s quite likely that I’ll do more of these eventually, so check back if you like what you see so far!
