I’m going to share with you a secret that I’ve kept quiet until now.…..go at night…. Wait…when?!? That’s right, at night. Go after the sun has set. Find a nice bar and have an aperitivo, or even an early dinner, then make your way to the Piazza dei Miracoli. You won’t believe your eyes. The vendors will be closed and their shops will have the shutters drawn. The throngs of tourists will be gone. The security guards telling you to stay off the grass will be at home enjoying dinner and telling their families about the funny things they saw foreigners doing that day. But most of all, you will notice the silence. The Piazza dei Miracoli is a place that I take every single person who comes to visit us to see. Even if during the day, the Piazza dei Miracoli is one of the most majestic squares I have ever seen, and I never get tired of seeing it. In another tip I will tell you about each building, a little history, and some little known tales and folklore surrounding various aspects of the square. But for right this second, I want you to imagine having this square to yourself. Or perhaps a few other likeminded people who speak in soft whispers and are more intent on experiencing the piazza from the lack of assault on the senses than with it.

Rome is Italy in a nutshell. Universally agreed upon as one of the most romantic and inspiring cities to live in, Rome is an exhilarating blend of historical ruins and vibrant streets. The city's artistic heritage is paralleled by only a few across the world; some reasons for this are the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Byzantine mosaics throughout its geography. A trip to Rome could also be either religious (a day at the Vatican) or completely dedicated to fashion owing to its dolce vita culture. You can randomly sit at any roadside cafe or bar and watch the sun go down with your partner by your side, or you can follow the hordes because when in Rome...Free things to do while here: Pay homage at St. Peter's Basilica where you can find the iconic Pietà statue by Michelangelo. Visit the Bocca della Verità and tell a lie – legend has it that the huge face will bite you if you fib, so keep your fingers out of the way. You must already be aware of the iconic Trevi Fountain in which you throw coins and seek a wish; that's a must-visit place.
On Day 8, we made our way towards the city of Pisa. Here, we straightaway went to the main attraction of the city, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the seven wonders of the world, making the city of Pisa, among the most visited, the world over. The monument, is actually a bell tower and took almost 200 years to be built. It started leaning once the construction reached the fifth floor, (out of eight in total). Due to the leaning, the top of the tower is 17 feet away from the vertical, making it a marvel to look at. Several attempts have been made to take it down, and rebuild, or restore at another location. Several people have tried to understand the reason behind the leaning. But no concrete scientific reason has been found so far.
