Best places in Italy for photos

From the canals of Venice to the rolling hills of Tuscany, Italy is a photographer’s paradise. Home to some of the world’s most iconic landscapes, stunning architecture and vibrant culture, it’s no wonder why Italy is a favorite among photographers. If you’re planning a trip to Italy, here are some of the best locations to take photos.

The Trevi Fountain in Rome is one of the most iconic spots in Italy and a must visit for any photographer. Located near the Pantheon in the heart of the city, the Trevi Fountain is one of the most photographed spots in the world. Make sure to get there early in the morning to beat the crowds and capture the beautiful light of the sun rising over the fountain.

For an unforgettable landscape shot, Positano on the Amalfi Coast is a great spot. With its colorful homes and dramatic cliffs, it’s the perfect place to capture the beauty of the Italian coastline. Be sure to visit the beach at sunset for a stunning view of the setting sun.

Milan is a great city for street photography. From its bustling streets to its iconic architecture, there’s plenty to explore and photograph. One of the best spots to get great photos is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a grand 19th-century shopping gallery with a stunning glass dome.

The canals of Venice are a must-see for any photographer. From the grand palazzos to the gondolas, there’s plenty to capture in this exquisite city. The best time to visit is at sunset, when the city is at its most beautiful and the light is perfect for photography.

Tuscany is home to some of the most beautiful and iconic landscape shots in Italy. Take a drive through the rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia for some breathtaking views of vineyards, cypress trees and old castles. The best time to visit is in the spring when the hills are full of wildflowers.

With its stunning landscapes, vibrant cities and centuries-old architecture, Italy is a photographer’s dream. Whether you’re looking for iconic city shots or breathtaking landscapes, there’s something for everyone in this beautiful country. So grab your camera and start planning your next trip to Italy!

In the South of Pienza in Val d'Orcia there is an Agriturismo TERRAPILLE. The cypresses there are called Gladiators, since they have made scenes for the famous film GLADIATOR. The last two hours before sunset are the best for good light-situations and magic moments.

      There are many spots where you can take great cityscapes of Ragusa Ibla, a little baroque city in the south-eastern Sicily, but I think this is one of the most beautiful!

      This spot offer a great city view with a foreground full filled by a beautiful roofs and the historic Santa Maria dell'Itria bell tower, and all the city in the background.

      Also, from this position the sunrise is just in front of you above the city (some graduated filters helps!)
