When tourists head to Italy, they typically flock towards large, well-known haunts like Venice, Rome, Florence, Sicily, and Milan. While these cities are beautiful, brimming with culture, history, and stunning architecture, they’re also filled with tourists.
People looking for a quiet, authentic Italian vacation often opt for the road less traveled. They seek out hidden gem destinations that haven’t been discovered by hoards of other travelers, allowing them to take in the sites in a peaceful manner, at their own pace.
