Italy is one of those countries that you simply have to visit. It offers so much from every imaginable perspective. Historically it’s great. Landscapes are out of this world. Architecture and nature can’t be compared to anything else.

If you’re a solo traveler there are plenty of places you can visit on your own. In this article, we’re going to focus on a few cities that are ideal stops for solo travelers. Please check them out and let us know what you think.



Let’s start with the capital. We don’t even have to spend too many words telling anyone why Rome is an ideal destination for every journeyman. It is a city that’s visited by millions of tourists from all over the world every year. Many of them go solo, and you should be no different.

Coliseum, Vatican, numerous squares, fountains, cathedrals, restaurants, and landmarks to explore. Just put Rome on your bucket list and everything else will sort itself out.


If Rome is too mainstream for you, worry not, we’ll take you to various places on the Apennine Peninsula. One of those that you’ll learn to love is Palermo. The funny thing is it’s not on the named peninsula. It is located on the island of Sicily and it is the capital of this island. We’re talking about a cozy, historic town.

Architecture is amazing and if you’re a fan of old buildings this city will remain forever in your heart. On the other hand, if you’re more in touch with nature, the sea and sand of Palermo will keep your heart warm.



Another obvious answer. This gem of a city is one of those places that every tourist that strolls through Italy needs to see. North Italy is full of charming cities, and here we have an amazing example. Being in it you will be culturally, historically, and architecturally immersed in Italy the same way as in any of the top locations this country has to offer.

This one stands tall on both our and the See Italy Travel list, and it is highly recommended by every travel agency in the world. With Arena di Verona and Romeo & Juliet house to visit, you will soon learn that Verona has plenty to offer to every visitor.


Yes, we know, this city is not your first association with Italy. We’re talking about another gem of Northern Italy. Bergamo is a place known for its football club, Atalanta BC, and passionate fans, but in addition to that it is yet another historically important Italian city. Its gem is the old town called the Upper Town which is built on the hill overseeing the city.

It is often left in the shadow of much bigger and more popular Milan but that is undeservedly like that. Some of the must-see locations in the city are Venetian Walls and Basilica Di Santa Maria Maggiore. Once you explore these places, you will understand why we rate Bergamo so high.



Now, we’re back to mainstream places in Italy. One of the locations that makes the Apennine Peninsula and Italy so famous is its canal city. Venice is built on a hundred water canals and is one of the rare world examples of cities like these. It is without a doubt one of the most popular travel destinations in the world.

The architecture in Venice is not unique for Italy but it stands out on a global scale. This is why you have to go, see it, explore it, and above all else breathe and live in Venice even if it’s for a little bit.


Of course, we have Siena on our map. After all, this city was featured in one of the James Bond films. This city is full of charm. It is all due to its narrow streets, unique architecture, and that smell that speaks of ancient history tied to its origin and present.

If you, as a solo traveler, decide to visit Siena you need to pay a visit to Palazzo Pubblico, Piazza del Campo, and Cathedral of Santa Maria della Scala among many other landmarks Siena has. It is a city worth every praise, and it is a true wonder how often it is not found on tourist maps when we talk about Italy.



Admit it, we’re continuing to surprise you. This is a place that hides its secrets deep in the heart of Lombardy. Historically and culturally it is an ideal location for solo travelers. If you want to breathe pure Italy even if it’s even for a while Brescia is an ideal place to do it.

Among many things you ought to see, we’d like to single out the Brescia Cathedral, Piazza del Duomo, and Castello di Brescia. If you’re an avid fan of art, it is also advisable that you check out the famous Pinacoteca Tosio Martinengo which is the biggest art museum in the region.


As a mainstream travel destination in Italy, it is not a surprise that we’ve included Florence on this list. After all. The Duomo di Firenze is one of the most famous buildings in Italy. In addition to it, Florence is a place where you need to taste some Italian wines and their cuisine.

As a solo traveler, you will find plenty of sports to enjoy when in Tuscany. The red roofs of Florence have been featured in plenty of films and are a constant inspiration for many artists in the world.

When in town you need to see Giotto’s Bell Tower and Piazzale Michelangelo. Sunset from these locations will leave Florence engraved into your mind forever. As far as the art of everyday life goes you should also see Accademia Gallery and Uffizi Gallery while you’re in Florence.

We dispersed them from north to south, so take your pick, or go around the entire country and breathe in every breath of this fabulous country.
