When you want to see as much of the great country of Italy as you possibly can, you will want to consider Italian rail passes. I don't know anyone who has been to Italy and not fallen in love with it. These people wish they could have spent more time there. They can't wait to get back. You will want to explore all that you can. Take trips to the north and the south to see the differences in people, food and culture.

The most popular places to go in Italy are Rome, Florence and Venice. Visit all of them if you have time. Some of you may be thinking, "What about Pisa? Shouldn't I see the Leaning Tower?" You can actually get off the train at Pisa, walk over to the tower and get back on the train in about 30 minutes. I suggest checking it out and moving on.

Culture and Italian Rail Passes

Florence is known for its art. It's where the Italian Renaissance began and flourished. You can see Michelangelo's David in Florence along with many other masterpieces. When you are in Rome, take a trip to the Vatican and tour St. Peter's Cathedral. Be aware that you might have some neck pain afterwards. All the best pieces of art are done on the ceiling.

Venice is a awesome. The boats are like taxis. You can take them to different parts of the city or to small islands of the city. I visited the island of Murano, where the famous Murano glass comes from. You can find glass clocks, ornaments, paperweights, frames and more. It's a shopper's haven. If you're there during February, you can stay for Carnivale.
