Beyond Rome: 8 Alternative Italian Cities

Tags :

Category : Italy , Visit Europe

When traveling to Italy, there are many great cities to choose from. Everyone knows about Rome, and many have seen its splendors through the eyes of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. Fashion lovers will find the catwalks and shops of Milan to be inspiring. Those who love romance often head for Venice. The architecture lovers head for Florence. But there is much more to Italy than these four famous Italian cities. Here’s a look at some of Italy’s lesser known cities.

8. Turin

Turin

 

A large city of about one million inhabitants, Turin is located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, a one-hour drive from the French border and slightly more than that from the Mediterranean. Turin was the first capital of modern Italy, and was the host of the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. While it’s not a famous tourist destination like other Italian cities such as Venice or Rome, the setting is pleasant, with the Po River flowing through the city and surrounded by the Italian Alps off in the distance. The center is filled with posh 19th century cafes, arcaded mansions, debonair glittering restaurants, and grand churches.

7. Parma 

Parma

 

One of Italy’s most prosperous cities, Parma has given its name to a ham and cheese and a number of world-famous culinary dishes. The term Parmesan is synonymous with excellent food. Though tourists may come to eat, they will stay for the sights as well. Highlights include the Museo Glauco Lombardi, Piazza Duomo, and world famous opera house, Teatro Regio. An annual Verdi festival celebrates the operas created by one of Parma’s most famous residents. The Palazzo Della Pallota is one of the region’s finest, and is named after the sixteenth-century game of Pelota. The city is easy to reach, and is only an hour ride from Bologna.

6. Rimini 

Rimini

 

Though most people come to Rimini to enjoy the modern beach resort town, this is one of Italy’s oldest settlements, with confirmed evidence of prehistoric inhabitants. Besides the beaches Rimini also offers fabulous food. Roman Emperors share the name with many of the sightseeing highlights here, such as the Tiberius bridge and Augustus Arch. Most people miss an old town here, however, and spend their days on the sand beaches along the coast.

5. Mantua

Mantua

 

Mantua (Mantova) is a city in Lombardy, situated between Milan and Venice. Because of the power and influence of Gonzaga’s dynasty, which used to own the city for over 400 years, Mantua was one of the most important cultural cities in the Renaissance and it still maintains a lot of the buildings that made it famous during that period. It was also the city where the composer Claudio Monteverdi premiered his opera L’Orfeo in 1607, the earliest surviving opera that is still regularly performed today.

 

4. Trieste

Trieste

 

Located on the Adriatic and almost entirely surrounded by Slovenia, Trieste is a city that is both geographically and historically isolated from the rest of the Italian peninsula. From the 1300s, Trieste has faced east, becoming a free port under Austrian rule and became prosperous under the 18th- and 19th-century Habsburgs. Today, Trieste is often forgotten by tourists coming to Italy but it is a very charming city, with a quiet, almost Eastern European atmosphere, several cafes, some stunning architecture and a beautiful sea view.

3. Ragusa 

Ragusa

Ragusa was a single city until a large earthquake in the late seventeenth century destroyed most of the town. When it came time to rebuild, the two main socioeconomic groups split, with the nobles staying in the old town location, known as Ragusa Ibla and the working class moved to a new place, known as Ragusa Superior. A beautiful arched bridge, known as Ponte Vecchio, spans the river dividing these two portions of Ragusa. Today Ragusa Ibla is a spectacular mix of narrow streets, steep winding steps, old churches, and fantastic views.

2. Perugia 

Perugia

 

The Umbrian city of Perugia is known for many things, including a prestigious university, chocolate-making, medieval art, and a jazz festival. An underground tour in the old town offers a chance to explore tunnels that were once a part of Perugia’s fortress walls. Architecture buffs can marvel at the 3rd Century BC Etruscan gate, called Porta Marzia. The Medieval Fontana Maggiore, created as a piece to celebrate the town’s independence, has an interesting combination of art images including biblical scenes, the zodiac, prophets and saints.

1. Urbino

#1 of Italian Cities

 

For those who want to see real-live Cinderella castles, Urbino is a must-see city in the region of Le Marche. The Duke of Urbino, a scholar and military man of the fifteenth century, was the commissioner of the Palazzo Ducale, one of the largest examples of renaissance-style castles in Italy. It was changed into a palace later on. Urbino is mainly known for this landmark, but the narrow, hilly medieval streets lead to a picturesque town that is worth seeing in its own right.
