I spent the summer of 2013 traveling through Italy. My friend and I started the trip in Venice, then made our way to Florence, Rome, and down to Naples to catch the ferry to Capri.
Here are some of my favorite spots:
Florence: Party on the Arno River. There's beach parties on the sand, bars along the water, you name it. So much fun nightlife! (And enjoy the sunsets. Seriously, look at this photo...)
Venice: Take a gondola ride. It's ridiculously overpriced (about $100 for a 40-minute ride) but totally worth it. A great place to photograph the canals, alleyways and ancient architecture on the island.
And make sure to dine along the Rialto Bridge. Great views, great food, and most importantly, great bellinis.
Rome: My favorite city in all of Italy. The Vatican, Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, the food... I loved it all. (Best meal in all of Italy was at Angelina a Testaccio in the Testaccio neighborhood. Unbelievable Italian food.)
Capri: I spent most of my time in Capri relaxing by the pool and shopping in their quaint little neighborhoods. And enjoying the beautiful views of the Almafi Coast. Gorg.
