    This is an icredible list, I didnt know there are so many ownders only in Italy. Of course overy one knows pizza and icecream, but I had no idea about the wine fountain or the smallest bar. Those are real gems and I would love to explore some of them during my next trip to Italy.

    I’ve visited Italy a couple of time and read about it quite a bit, but there’s always something new to discover. I honestly believe there is so much to see and do there that it is a whole world in its own. My personal experience has been around Verona, Lago di Garda, Venice, and a short stop in Rome, so there is a lot I need to see. As a bibliophile, the bathtub bookshop and the library with chains are quite impressive. I would also love to stay in trullo. Brilliant and unique ideas for my next trip, thank you.

    This is such an incredibly fantastic list! I’ve only ever been to Sicily, so when I head back to the homeland, I’m definitely using this as a roadmap of places to go and things to see. The freakiest one to me is the mummies behind the church alter, but the coolest is probably walking on a frozen town. What an experience that would be! The ultimate thing I HAVE to try before I die though… is obviously the rarest pasta in the world. Life = complete.

    I love Italy, and although I’ve done a few of the things you’ve mentioned, there are so many more on your list that I’d love to experience. The Biblioteca Malatestiana looks fascinating; I bet I could spend hours looking through those old volumes. I’d also like to try the su filinde pasta – it’s sad that there are only three people left who can make it. There are two things you mentioned that I’ll be sure to stay away from: the orange fight (I bruise too easily) and La Chiesa dei Morti. I might have nightmares just from that photo! Thanks for a fantastic list!

      Thank you, Carrie- I’m really glad to hear you liked this article and I hope you get the chance to experience some of these things in person (except for the church of the dead and the orange fight :))

    Staying in a Trullo has been on my list for ages. Italy is just one of my favourite countries can’t get enough of pasta, pizza, gelato and great coffee. This article will be bookmarked for future reference. It is a great resource. Thanks.

    When I was in Italy, I went to Rome and tried the real pasta and pizza! I went to Piazza di Spagnia and did shopping. I went to Vatican city too to see the Pope and check out St. Peter’s Basilica! It’s one of my fave cities!

    This is such a fun post for me, as I live half the year in Italy (Veneto). That said, I’ve never seen the city beneath the lake, and considering we regularly travel there, it’s going on the list. You cannot beat pizza Napoletana, it’s the best!

    Wow, all the points are very authentic and can be found only in Italy. Living in Trullo must be very unique. And I never heard of an orange fight which looks very interesting thing to witness here. Trying rarest of pasta and wood-fired authentic pizzas in Italy would be my choice. Thanks for sharing all the interesting points.

    I have been to Italy several times but I am yet to all the 25 things you mentioned. I would love to try Su filinde pasta and drinking wine from the fountain. They look and sound so cool. I so envy you that you live in Trullo
