While the names may be familiar, the cities and towns of Northern Italy, true treasures in-and-of-themselves, are often relegated to ‘another time.’ Yet, they are genuinely some of Italy’s most spectacular gems.
Nowhere exemplifies ‘la Bella Vita’ more than Lake Como, popular since the times of the Romans. Lined with exquisite villas, enchanting hamlets, and an Alpine backdrop, the vibe of Lake Como is nothing less than the ‘the good life!’ Milan, a study in contrast, where the world’s largest and most beautiful, Gothic cathedral stands next to fashion titans such as Prada and Versace. Cremona, the birthplace of Stradivarius and, to this day, the world’s finest and most revered string instruments, is a window back in time. Romantic and charming Verona is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Neighboring, Vincenza and Padua are home to some of Itlay’s most extraordinary artistry and architecture. And, of course, the timeless appeal of Venice, one of the world’s most fantastical cities, holds remarkable discoveries any time you walk through its cobblestone passageways or glide along its captivating canals.
