Top 5 Things to Do for US Citizens in Italy in 2017

Italy. One of the most glorious, magnificent, incredible, enriching trips you’ll ever take. As home to the great Roman Empire, Italy presents some of the most popular and greatest sites of ancient history. 

And since you’re probably tired of those endless political podcasts and countless tweets on the Trump Vs Clinton debate, we’re bringing you some of the best things to do in Italy in 2017, many of which can be booked via Bookmundi, at reasonable prices. Each of these experiences feel special, incredibly unique and extremely adventurous.

Pompeii

Modern day Pompeii might have recovered from its extinction-like event, but Europe’s most intriguing destination reminds us of the kind of destruction nature is capable of. But even at her destructive best, nature still managed to perfectly preserve architectural wonders from over worked 2000 years ago!

Why Go: A living museum that preserved a way of life for more than 2000 years, Pompeii takes you to ancient supermarkets, Roman bakeries, old cemeteries, ancient brothels and historic houses, each narrating stories of a bygone era.

Chianti Classico

Visit medieval villages such as Greve, San Donato and Castelina and explore medieval streets, Renaissance-era buildings and splendid churches. No other area in Italy manages to feel so special, so exquisite.

Why Go: You’re probably thinking about ignoring Chianti because there are equally stunning wine regions back home. After all, places like Napa and Sonoma do compare with the very best! Well, what makes Chianti so different is its rich history and incredible architectural gems.
