In his free time, Randy Eastburg enjoys traveling and is particularly fond of visiting Italy.
Below are four underrated destinations in Italy:
1. Ravello: A peaceful resort town, Ravello does not get as many tourists as neighboring Amalfi or Positano, despite hosting numerous high-profile guests. Visitors can easily walk throughout the entire small town and end their day at Ravello’s 11th-century church in the main square.
2. Chieti: This ancient city dates back to 1181 BCE and features a unique blend of modern and ancient architecture. Museums, restaurants, castles, and gardens dot the city, and guests can find plenty of fine hotels and spas at which to relax.
3. Padua: Located in Italy’s Veneto region, Padua serves as a gathering place for students, intellectuals, and artists. The city’s cultural blend is unmatched by nearly any other Italian city, and the frescoes found in its Scrovegni Chapel rival those at the Sistine Chapel.
4. Siena: Complete with a gothic church and large piazza del campo, Siena has a medieval vibe that makes it a fascinating place to visit. It is located in the Tuscan region and hosts a famous biannual horse race that is broadcast across the country.
