An Itinerary for the Perfect Road Trip In Italy

Whether you want to spend two days or a whole week driving around Italy, this road trip planner has the most beautiful spots you should not miss. While exploring these places, make use of buses, trams, intercity trains, and Metro. Only hire a car if you absolutely need it.

  • 1. Rome

    You must be courageous to drive in Rome, so the most convenient adventures are achieved by walking or using public transport. Catch a glimpse of the beauty in this capital city but remember to stamp the ticket when you board a train. At sunrise, don't miss out on the Lungotevere Castel Sant'Angelo for the best experience in Rome. Head to Saint Peter's Church and admire gardens from the top of the Dome. Then at sunrise get the best view of Italy's capital at Pincio Terrace.

  • 2. Amalfi Coast

    Also known as The Costiera Amalfitana, Amalfi Coast is the most dramatic stretch on the coastline, featuring mountains, towering bluffs, beaches, and pastel-hued villages. Like in a Mediterranean landscape, you will find expansive vistas along with the luxurious gardens. Salerno is the most convenient spot on the coast and is a very busy port. After exploring the ceramics in Mare village, don't hesitate to stop over at various viewpoints including Capo d'Orso, Minori, and Maiori. Beware of the narrow and famously winding roads along Amalfi Coast.

  • 3. Roman Castles

    Castelli Romani or Roman Castles provide a better chance to escape the bustling of the city. Immerse yourself in the artistic beauty of a medieval village outside of Rome. You will be driving through the ruins of Via Appia and Baths of Caracalla. The trip should lead you to the Road of the Lakes in Colli Albani, a hilly place with the volcanic origin and growing villages. Enjoy a tranquil atmosphere where the Pope spends his summer at Castel Gandolfo on the volcanic lake.

  • 4. Tuscany

    Take a leisurely drive through Casentino Valley, a rolling landscape where Italian hotels and great wineries dominate. Taste the authentic Tuscan food, as you linger in this magical region of Italy. At your own pace, enjoy excursions at the Tuscan countryside and make a brief detour to Florence. Pop into an eatery for gastronomic adventures. Continue with the journey to the medieval Montepulciano town for some wine and fresh Bresaola.
