In some places, it is not enough to go only once in a lifetime, at least twice.
Meet once, fall in love once.
This is the case in Italy.
Compared to the cold that two long trousers in other parts of Europe cannot withstand, the winter in Italy is warm and humid by the warm and humid air of the Mediterranean.
Florence and Rome have the most prestigious buildings in all of Italy. For this reason, only in winter can you avoid the crowds and enjoy the beauty of the ancient city and castle leisurely.
At dusk, facing the afterglow, climb up the steps and board the Michelangelo square, overlooking the whole of Florence. The ochre-colored roof, in the fine sunlight, quietly presents its simplicity and beauty.
At the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the afterglow of the setting sun was shattered by the church's not bright glass windows and spilled all over the floor. The charm of architecture and light and shadow can always hit people's hearts in an instant.
In the afterglow of the sunset, quaint medieval towns are scattered like pearls on the Tuscan fields. Go to Siena, which is built on the hill, to watch a sunset, or go to Lucca, which is rarely visited by tourists, to eat a delicious Italian ice cream... Pick one or two small towns to stroll around, it is a great choice to experience the Tuscan style .
If you want to better integrate into the local life, you can choose a farm in the small town and taste good wine and delicacies in the country farm.
Or find a local homestay to live in, go to the market, pick the ingredients, learn to cook Italian dishes from the owner, and enjoy an authentic gourmet feast.
In winter, Italy is a favorite of ski lovers.
The beauty of Alps is enough to make people fascinated. The top of the mountain is wrapped in silver, surrounded by small towns under the mountain, and countless ski trails winding through the mountain, making it a paradise for skiers. And the most fascinating section of the Alps-the Dolomites, is the Italian ski mecca.
There is the world’s largest ski merry-go-round. There are hundreds of kilometers of slopes with different levels of slopes, which is the first choice for beginners.
In addition to snow, the mountains here are magnificent, there are many strange peaks, and the mountains embrace many charming villages, which are unique and charming.
The Mediterranean sun plays the biggest role in Sicily in winter. When the whole of Europe was trembling with the cold, Sicily still looked like a sunny island.
Bright sunshine, warm humidity, old churches and colorful buildings, blue ocean and full of style Sicilian people exude the romance and style of Italy to the extreme.
Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is the ball kicked by the Italian "boot" on the map. Goethe once called it "the most beautiful promontory in the world."
In the center of the city, various characteristic architectural styles merged here, making Palermo crazy and full of charm.
Five fishing villages. But it is actually a national park. Five cliff-side villages and towns, connected by plank roads and railways, together form the smallest national park in Italy.
Although summer here is beautiful, it is too hot! Especially for people who are afraid of heat, it is not an exaggeration to say that "eyes are in heaven, and body is in hell". On the contrary, it is better to choose sunny weather in winter.
The most dazzling thing in the village is the colorful huts, stacked like building blocks on the mountain wall facing the sea, like a fairy tale-like dream scene.
The location of Cinque Terre is remote, the best way of transportation is to take a small train. The train traveled along the coast, sitting by the window, swaying along with the train, and seeing all the beautiful scenery.
Winter is the carnival season in Venice.
You may hardly imagine that the oldest and largest carnival in the world is actually in Venice, a city of gentle waters. Venice in February every year is a festive hustle and bustle among gorgeous masks, colorful costumes, enthusiastic smiling faces and blue water and blue sky.
Water parades, mask contests, craft fairs, operas, dances, stunts, various celebrations and performances can last for more than half a month.
There are countless mask shops in the streets and alleys, some collect fashionable cloaks, some specialize in high-top hard hats, and some show the craftsmanship of masks on the spot.
As long as you enter the water alleys of Venice and look at the colorful masks, there is probably no one who will not be attracted by the water city in the carnival.
