A PASSAGE TO ITALY
It is soaked in history, brimming with architectural marvels and has pockets with buzzing nightlife. Here’s your guide to a Roman vacay
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.

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.
