Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, Portovenere is a part of a series of villages called Cinque Terre connected by train and a walking path that follows the coastal cliffs. It takes a few hours to get from one end to the other, so break up your walk with stops for wine and antipasto. For the best views, take a ferry between the villages. You can visit a number of historic churches, some built as early as the 12th century, such as St. Peter's Gothic cathedral. Lord Byron spent some time in the area and added to its romantic appeal with his stories.

14. Torre Guinigi, Lucca

An easily recognizable regional landmark, Torre Guinigi features a hanging garden on its roof. Built in the late 1300s by a local wealthy family of merchants, the tower is a typical example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture. The tower was constructed to give a look of refinement to one of the nearby houses, as these structures were once a symbol of the prestige and prosperity of the richest families in the area. The imposing brick tower is decorated with various plaques, cornices, and coats of arms. Don’t skip a climb to the top of this city symbol, as the roof offers 360-degree views of the town and the province, with the rolling Tuscan hills fading into the distant mountains.
