Solo travel is exhilarating, empowering, and certainly not for the faint of heart. But if you’re looking to take the plunge into the world of solo travel, trust me when I say there is no better place to start than Italy.
Years ago I booked a ticket to Rome on a whim. I cobbled together an itinerary, chose hostels and eateries at the advice of a handful of guidebooks, and set out on my own. And you know what? That month in Italy was one of the best experiences of my life. It was the perfect combination of adventure and comfort, and I was able to get into a travel groove that let me to absorb all Italy had to offer (which was a lot!).
So what is it that makes Italy the ultimate solo-travel destination?
