I know you’re in Italy to study, but I’m sure that in the back of your mind is all the great IG content you can bring back with you from your day trips in the various towns and cities you’ll get to visit. You’re wondering about where are those nice places to take pictures in Italy, what are the best photo spots in Venice Italy, what are the Italy captions for Instagram to maximize my like/hashtag ratio. It’s ok we live in a branded world so you’re excused, you don’t need to worry about it.

Now because I know my chickens, I thought why not give you a little refresh on where to find these nice places to take pictures? Plus they’re not just instagramable, they’re also some of the best spots to visit in Italy if it’s your first time coming into the country. A mix between a must-see, and pictures to take in Italy guide if you must.

Now let’s look at this best photo spots in Italy list that you’ll keep with you everywhere you go from now on. Just a disclaimer, I won’t be adding the best places to take pictures in Florence, cause I already wrote a post on hidden Florence. So, to find the best photo spots in Florence just find this post here.


You can’t say you’ve been to Italy if you don’t have at least one pic of the Colosseum, plus right next door you’ll find the Foro Romanico another great IG location.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

One of the best places to take pictures in Milan is Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, it’s right next to the Duomo di Milano, and even though it’s quite packed there’s a lot of beautiful spots to take pics at. Defo one of the top photo spots in Milan.

Isola Bella

Not far from Milan, Isola Bella is in the Lago Maggiore. It was the private island of the Borromeo family and you’ll get to see a beautiful botanical garden, plus the beautiful palazzo. Check it out and let us know.

Tower of Pisa

Another must on this list is the Tower of Pisa, you know it like the palm of your hand even if you haven’t seen it. One thing I can say is to play around with it, don’t just do the classic hold the tower pose.


The Amalfi coast is something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime, the beauty and chilled vibes are something else. Take a boat ride and snap the beautiful little beach town from the sea.


Now Venice is evergreen when it comes to IG spots, that’s why I’m putting in twice. For this section, I’ll say that you need to take a pic from the Campanile, or the terrace of San Marco, to get a great view of the city.

Canal Grande – Venice

And you also need to take that postcard style pic of the Canal Grande, from the Ponte del Rialto, it’s just too good to pass on.

San Gimignano – Torre Grossa

Even though I said I wasn’t going to talk about Florence that doesn’t mean I’m not going to give you one of the best places to take photos in Tuscany. San Gimignano is a Borgo between Florence and Siena, and when you go up the Torre Grossa you’ll have a bird’s eye view on the Tuscan Countryside.

The Dolomites in the Summer

Why not go a bit further and find yourself in the Dolomites, in the Summertime the mountains are a bit quieter as Italians prefer the beach, this leaves you with a lot of room to play with for your pristine wanderlust pics.

Cinque Terre – Vernazza & Riomaggiore

There isn’t just one good photo spot in the Cinque Terre, there are best photo spots in Cinque Terre, and those places are Vernazza and Riomaggiore. You can’t go to 5 Terre and not go take some pics here. It would be sinful.
