When people think about traveling to England, the first things that come to mind are typically the sights and landmarks. The whole country is filled with them: ancient castles, picturesque countryside, historic churches, and an endless array of burial sites, museums, monuments, and much more. You can easily fill a whole trip to England with a guidebook directing you to the sights you’re most interested in, whether that means Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, or a tour of major castles from the country’s history.

Naples is Italy’s third largest city and home to some of the best food in all of Italy – while it’s a less common tourist destination compared to more popular cities like Rome, Florence, or Capri, there are lots of great gems the city has to offer. Located in Southern Rome, it is best to avoid summer when visiting as it can get very hot and humid, with Spring and Fall being the best times to explore. Whether you plan to stay for just a day or your entire holiday, Naples has plenty to offer and is just two hours south of Rome if you plan to continue your journey from here, and best of all there are plenty of cheap hotels in Naples that will make your stay easy on the wallet, too.

Rome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world with attractions such as the Colosseum, Pantheon, and the Sistine Chapel, but there are some less-traveled neighborhoods you might not have heard of that no trip is complete without. As the popular saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” So when you visit the area, be sure to check out Garbatella, Trastevere, and Monti if you want more of an authentic Roman experience.
