2.Milan second in the top cities of Italy by population
With a total population of approx 1.3 million inhabitants, Milan is the second-largest of cities in Italy by population.
It is also the financial capital of the country, being home of the Italian stock exchange and a very important role in many industries.
Besides the many shops and cafes where to drink a coffee after a long shopping session, Milan is also famous for its Duomo di Milano, one of the last gothic style churches built in Europe.
Where to sleep: Hotel Spadari Al Duomo is our suggestion for Milan. The hotel is located just a few steps away from the Duomo di Milano and the most important shops in the city.
What I liked the most at this hotel, besides the location were the comfortable beds, the spacious rooms and the American breakfast served each morning.
With almost 1 million citizens, Naples is the third-largest city of Italy.
This city is one of the oldest inhabited places in Europe with a history dating for more than 2000 years.
Naples is the best place to set your camp if you want to explore Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii and Capri and Ischia Islands.
Planning to explore the city? Great decision! Include in your itinerary Royal Palace of Naples and Duomo di San Gennaro.
