Oh, the land of pizzas, dreamy pasta, and gelato. Where else could I possibly be referring to other than la vita Italia? Italy has much to offer, but often bigger players like Venice, Rome, and Milan steal the show. Though I'm convinced some of Italy's smaller cities are just as (if not more) impressive as their formidable neighbors. Next to its affordability, pleasant weather and plethora of historical attractions, be sure to save this money-saving itinerary for your next trip to Padua, Italy.
