From Shake­spearean tragedies such as Julius Cae­sar and An­thony and Cleopatra to Hol­ly­wood hits such as Roman Hol­i­day (1953) and An­gels And De­mons (2009), Italy has been ro­man­ti­cised by cre­ative minds the world over. Nat­u­rally, it ranked high on our wish list. After much re­search, we ze­roed on the cities of Rome, Florence and Venice for a seven-day trip.

When we first set foot in Rome, we couldn’t help but feel that it is a fancier ver­sion of south Mumbai. That im­pres­sion changed soon enough. With its pic­turesque views and ar­chi­tec­tural mar­vels, Italy grew on us. Soon we were strolling down bridges, try­ing Ital­ian cui­sine and shop­ping. Here’s a quick guide to spend­ing a week in Italy.
