6. Italy Travel Guide by Rick Steves

  • Italy Itinerary · Rome · Guidebook Updates for Italy · Cinque Terre

  • Bell'Italia! Italy has Europe's richest, craziest culture. After all, this nation is the cradle of European civilization — established by the Roman Empire and carried on by the Roman Catholic Church. As you explore Italy, you'll stand face-to-face with some of the world's most iconic images from this 2,000-year history: Rome's ancient Colosseum and playful Trevi Fountain, Pisa's Leaning Tower, Florence's Renaissance masterpieces (Michelangelo's David and Botticelli's Venus), and the island city of elegant decay — Venice. Beyond these famous sights, though, Italy offers Europe's richest culture. Traditions still live within a country that is vibrant and fully modern. Go with an eye open to both the Italy of the past and of the present.

  • I just wrapped up three intensely busy weeks in Europe, working on the next editions of our Italy guidebooks. When I'm on the road, I think of myself as a "cultural lint brush"…catching little observations, tips, insights, and travel trends as they flutter by. I jot them down in my little notebook, excited to share them with as many travelers as possible.

9. Milan - Rick Steves Europe

  • Explore Milan! Get inspired with Rick Steves' recommended places to go and things to do, with tips, photos, videos, and travel information on Milan.

  • While many tourists come to Italy for the past, Milan is today's Italy. The nation's fashion, industry, banking, TV, publishing, and convention capital, Milan is a hardworking, style-conscious, time-is-money city of 1.3 million. In this city of refined tastes, window displays are gorgeous, cigarettes are chic, and even the cheese comes gift-wrapped. Yet thankfully, Milan is no more expensive for tourists than any other Italian city. While it doesn't have the artistic oomph of Rome or Florence, Milan still has several significant sights — most notably its Duomo, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping arcade, La Scala Opera House, and Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper.
