10 Underrated Italian Villages To Add To Your Travel Bucket List | Architectural Summary


If you are planning a trip through Europe, be sure to consider these Italian villages. “To visit them is to participate in the beauty of Italy while helping to bring these enchanting places to life”, declares Fiorello Primi, president of the association “The most beautiful villages in Italy” (I Borghi piu belli d’Italia). While you know Rome, Florence or Milan, Primi’s organization has spent the past 20 years promoting the heritage of small towns across the country. So far, it has highlighted more than 300 villages across the country.

Although cliched accounts may suggest that these places are clearly on the road to extinction, Primi contends that is not the case. “These are not soulless stones. With proper care and attention, they can stay alive for a long time,” he says.

In this spirit, our friends from AD Italy challenged the association. AD asked them to choose not the top 10 villages – a list that would likely consist of some well-known default favorites – nor those most in danger of disappearing. Instead, we wanted a list of 10 gorgeous villages from across Italy with a standout feature, unique appeal, or intriguing side. And the “Most Beautiful Villages in Italy” delivered.

“Small towns are the backbone of the country,” says Giorgio Palmucci, president of Enit, Italy’s national tourism agency. That said, there are hundreds of other Italian villages worthy of making this list, so consider this more of a start than a definitive ranking. Disclaimer aside, see Primi’s 10 organization promises that are well worth the trip below.
