So do I. That's why I have traveled to the most vibrant cities in Italy to feast my eyes on the vivid colors of nature, art, and architecture.

Since living in Italy, I have discovered myriad places of colors - they are all colorful in their own ways. Most of the times, the colors are part of the architecture of a village, an island or a cathedral. For instance, th[e five villages in Cinque Terre]( are famous for their pastel-colored buildings, and the iconic image of th[e Burano Island in Venice]( is brightly-painted fisherman houses alongside a canal. Meanwhile, th[e Orvieto Cathedral in Umbria]( is admired for its rainbow-colored facade.

Sometimes, the colors come from the arrangements of flowers such as in Sp[ello in Umbria]( Flower lovers can travel to Spello to attend the annual flower festival called Infiorate di Spello. It takes place on the occasion of the Corpus Domini feast (on the ninth Sunday after Easter). Meanwhile, art lovers must not miss the magical mosaics in Ra[venna, one of my favorite cities in Italy]( You can find mesmerizing mosaics all over Ra[venna](, and some of the highlights are the ones in Basilica of San Vitale and Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.

The daily life in many Italian cities is filled with joyful design and unique masterpieces. A day in Italy is never dull. Here are the top recommendations from our editors:
