Best Photo Spots in Italy

Tuscany

While travelling in Tuscany one must rent a car and go between Siena, Florence and Genoa off-highway. This way you will be exposed to beautiful vallyes, e.g. Val d’Orcia, meadows, cypress hills etc. Tuscany is a dreamland for landscape photographers and therefore I recommend them to take a tripod, wide…

Siena Cathedral

Toscany is a region of Italy with a strong history. Siena is in the center of Toscany and its cathedral is impressive. Close to it, you can climb to a watchtower. The rules are strict: I don’t remember all the details, but it is something like “you go to the…

Firenze Cathedral

The cathedral of Firenze is worth the visit. You can climb the campanile to see it and the city from above. Since it is a touristic place, you may want to go there early if you are visiting during the summer. Moreover you will avoid the heat and the strong…

Ponte Vecchio

This bridge may be one of the most famous in the world. It is interesting to cross (of course), but to capture it in full you need to be on another bridge. The “Ponte all Grazie” is the one where you want to go (on the East). The other one…

Pisa Tower

The Pisa tower is very famous, and in most of the pictures you will see it alone. However, there is a cathedral and a battistero just behind that (I think) should be captured as well. It is very crowded during the summer hours, so as always you may want to…

Cinque Terre

The park of Cinque Terre (part of the UNESCO World Heritage) is a real post-card. I really recommend to try to see the villages from different viewpoint, that’s why walking between villages and then taking a boat is a nice idea. If you want to capture the villages from the…

Salerno

Especially at night, Salerno uncloaks its really nice nightlife. The park in city center bathes in the light of multiple works of art. When you go through the small alleys, you can discover tiny taverns, extraordinary shops and a several hundred years old city architecture.

Area Archeologica di Paestum

The archaeological site contains three Dorian temples (Hera, Athene and Poseidon, between 540 – 450 before Christ). Furthermore, you can visit a little amphitheater. In my opinion, the site shines most at dusk because the sun goes down at the right position behind the temples. Despite that, the relics are…

Old Town, Napoli

Located in the beatiful Campania region, Naples is the third largest Italian city and is one of the oldest human settlements of the world, being inhabitated since 3000 BC.

Ponte alle Grazie

I recently visited Florence. Being a one-day trip, I had to rely on luck to find good photography spots. I have crossed this bridge something like four times, but only on the third I realized that, with sunset, it would have become a good spot for shooting the Ponte Vecchio,…
