The list of Italy’s must-see cities resembles the roll call for a beauty pageant. There’s Venice, of course, who needs no introduction, as her very name conjures up images of unspeakable beauty. On the opposite side of the country, Genova promises more than meets the eye: behind her bustling seafront, the Old Town’s numerous palazzi have been granted UNESCO World Heritage status, and there’s her interesting seafaring past to discover, too. The same can be said of Turin, whose penchant for cars and football (the city is home to Fiat and Juventus) belies her graceful Baroque architecture and wide boulevards. Bologna – all red-brick buildings and medieval towers – has two personae: there’s Bologna the learned (it boasts the world’s oldest university), and Bologna the fat (for which read ‘gourmet’), which has been crowned Italy’s gastronomic capital. Verona’s claim to fame, meanwhile, lies in her wealth of Roman monuments, second only to Rome who, thanks in part to her status as capital, has no shortage of steadfast admirers. Then there’s Lucca, a city of great charm and Renaissance elegance hidden by superbly preserved medieval walls and often kept out of the limelight by other, more famous Tuscan cities such as dazzling Florence with her unmistakable (and unsurpassable) skyline. Last, but by no means least, vivacious Naples is no shrinking violet, and instead brims with Italian brio while towering Mount Vesuvius watches on sternly.
