Although Sicily looks like it's being thrown out of Italy by the tip of the boot, it's a great deal a part of this varied country. This island of Sicily Italy has its own separated cultures and is worth a travel to all on its own - not least because it's exciting enough to get here from the Italian mainland that you really don't want to short-change yourself by just taking a few days to see it. There are a few big and interesting cities to travel to, along with some really cool Greek ruins and a very active volcano. Do yourself a favor and pass at least a week, maybe more. Just remember that summers can get very hot, so try to avoid going then.

Many of the properties in San Gimignano are farm tourism, and most of those are outside the city itself. The good news with this is that you're likely to have splendid views of San Gimignano's legendary towers, but it implies that you'll have to jump in your car or put your feet to good use to roam its picturesque cobbled streets. There are a few San Gimignano hotels right inside the old city which are reasonably priced, so if you wish to have the medieval streets right outside your door, that's the way to go. Begin by researching these San Gimignano accommodations and San Gimignano hotels and book a room today.

There isn't a lot to do in Positano, aside from delighting in the views and the sun. The beach in Positano is the main attraction, followed closely by the boutique shopping that you'll find all around the harbor. A longer stay in Positano is also a great idea if you want to make day-trips to nearby Naples, the islands of Capri or Ischia, or Pompeii and Herculaneum. Whichever you do, you'll want to take life slowly here - Positano is meant to be savored, and you can't do that in a hurry. Oh, and remember that cities like Positano along Italy's coasts get overloaded with inland Italians on holiday in August, so you might want to steer clear of it then.

There's actually only one main reason people come to Pisa, and that's to see the renowned leaning tower. Luckily it's very close to the main train station, so you can drop your bags in a locker and hop on a bus for the short drive to the plain square about the Pisa's leaning tower and church. The Leaning Tower in Pisa is in truth just the bell tower for the close cathedral, which is rather impressive in its own right. Tours of the cathedral and the baptistery (behind the church) are recommended, and cheap in comparison to the tower itself. The tower is from time to time open for going up and sometimes not, counting on its stability, and it's a good idea to book tickets ahead if you're eager to climb it.

Naples isn’t too far from Rome so many visitors will arrive in Rome and then do the rest of Italy by rail. But it is workable to fly straight away to Naples from most of Europe's airports and even further away. You can book a flight into Capodichino International Airport (code: NAP) and then take public transportation system into the city center. If you are coming from out of the region it’s probably better to book a flight into Rome and then arrive by train.

Milan is well located on the train lines so it's a favorite stop for Eurail Pass bearers or anyone else transiting northern Italy. If coming up from further away than next doorway you'll want to book a flight into Malpensa airport (code: MXP). This is the biggest of three airports and the most popular for longer flights. Also check Linate Airport (code: LIN) and Orio al Serio Airport (code: BGY) as each holds some local and low-cost carrier traffic.

Vernazza has the only proper harbor in the Cinque Terre and is a marvelous, small fishing village. The hike northeast from Vernazza to Monterosso produces indelible memories of incredibly beautiful cliffs and seascapes. The hike takes about 90 minutes each way, but you can hike one way and go back on the train. You can get to Cinque Terre and Vernazza, where you have many apartments and accommodation in hotel's room, from Levanto by train or by car, and during the summer season also by boat, using a daily ferry service that connect Levanto with Vernazza and the others cinque terre towns.
