The Most Instagrammable Road Trip in Italy: two-week itinerary in Provence, Como, Tuscany, Cinque Terre

If you are obsessed with aesthetics, travel and photography as we are – prepare to dive in the beauty of this unorthodox aesthetic travel experience!

The Most Photogenic Road trip

DISCLOSURE: We may earn a commission when you use one of our coupons/links to make a purchase.


Lavender and sunflower fields of Provence, magnificent historic villas at Lake Como, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Portofino, Camogli, French Riviera – seems overwhelming and impossible to discover with joy in two weeks. But we made the impossible.

This aesthetic travel itinerary has been initially created and written down as our actual vacation, not a typical exhausting photographic expedition that squeezes all the energy out of you on the second day.

What to expect from the road trip?

Firstly, expect to truly ENJOY this road trip. We tried our best to minimize the amount of time spent driving, packing/unpacking, and changing hotels (especially since it was our real vacation, duh). Secondly, expect tsunamis of inspiration, and an unstoppable desire to create nonstop – it is very beautiful out there! This trip is filled with photogenic beauty and eye-pleasing gems.

Before you go

We traveled in the middle of summer when beaches are open, and when the lavender and sunflower fields bloom in their full glory. Therefore in case, you plan to arrive during some other season, please keep in mind that you would need to adjust the itinerary, by removing the fields and beach activities from it.

Photography equipment and gear for the road trip

Confusing Italian speed limits

Keep in mind that speed limits can be very confusing in Italy, especially when driving in the countryside. Never go above the general speed limits – 130 km/h on highways, 90 km/h in the countryside, 50 – in towns, 30 – in villages, and historic/central parts of towns.


Day 1. Getting a car. Arrival to Provence. Sunset at lavender and sunflower fields.

The first region we visited is Provence – one of the most picturesque and ‘instagrammable’ places on Earth. The color bursting lavender and sunflower fields are irresistible. When observing all that beauty I usually want to do only two things – first, to dive inside these deliciously smelling symmetrical puffy rows of flowers, and secondly, to get my camera out and take photos non-stop!

Where to rent a car in Provence? – In Nice.

Let me explain. Of course, it seems reasonable to get a car in the Valensole itself, the closest town to the fields, but there is a trick. Valensole is a quite small town, and it is not particularly famous for the most developed infrastructure. It can be a real hustle to get a car there especially during summertime when there can be lots of visitors. And even if you are lucky enough – most probably, there won’t be any choice, and you will have to stick with whatever they have, usually, with the lowest class options. And I recommend getting a comfortable option for the two-week road trip, as you do not want to sacrifice your energy and mood in exchange for an arguable bargain.

We envisioned this trip to be comfortable and hustle free, therefore we came up with an idea to start and to finish our adventure in the same place, which turned out to be so smart!

We recommend arriving at Nice first and renting a car there, in the airport or the train station, depending on where you arrive. And these are the reasons:

  1. You get a variety of options to arrive in the region since Nice is a big transportation hub.
  2. You can get a round-trip ticket from home and back.
  3. You get a wider variety of cars to rent.
  4. You are able to easily return a car at the same place without any additional hustle and fees (the rental fee may double sometimes if you want to drop off the car in different countries or even cities).

Aesthetic photography spots and Instagram locations at lavender and sunflower fields of Provence

After your arrival and check-in at the place where you are staying, I definitely recommend spending the golden hour time on sunset shooting in the fields. There are plenty of options, but in our four years of visiting Provence, we gathered the most beautiful and mesmerizing ones for you. Keep in mind that some locations are best depending on the time of the day.

This is the only full day we had in the fields and we decided to spend it watching sunrise shooting at lavender fields and sunflower fields, enjoying fresh local fruits, and watching the sunset in the hills.

Day 3. The road from Provence to Turin. Evening in Turin

The biggest part of the third day of our aesthetic road trip was occupied by driving from Valensole to Turin, which took us around 5 hours with two stops. This is, basically, the longest trip of the road trip, so make sure to be fresh from the morning. We decided to spend morning hustle-free, enjoying a breakfast, working a bit, and calmly packing our things to hit the road.

It is important to mention that the road from Valensole to Turin is incredibly beautiful! We drove through mountains and the road was almost 2 km high at the highest point. It is worth to stop several times to enjoy the air and beauty that you will see.

After the longest ride of the road trip, we were a bit tired, even though the road was incredibly beautiful. So we just checked in our hotel and went out to dine.

 


Day 4. Aesthetic Turin Tour. Arrival to Cernobbio.

To be honest, when we planned the trip I did not expect Turin to be very exciting, but it turned out to be so incredibly aesthetic and beautiful that we regretted that we did not plan to stay longer. Turin is filled with gorgeous aesthetic locations, photos of which will blow out your Instagram feed. I wanted to spend hours staring at every detail of its magnificent architecture!

Leaving Turin to the Gorgeous Villa in Cernobbio, Lake Como

In the evening we left Turin and hit the road to Cernobbio, where we stayed at the gorgeous historic villa. The villa is a MUST-VISIT! Honestly, the historic property was so beautiful, the staff was so nice and hospitable that I actually cried out of the excitement of staying there. It was definitely the highlight of the road trip, the atmosphere of the place is incredible.

How to get from Cernobbio to Bellagio, Lake Como

It is worth mentioning, that you can get by car from Cernobbio to Bellagio either by land through the south or driving north and using a ferry in Cardenabbia. The difference between these two routes is basically that the second option is more reliable and comfortable. On Google Maps the lengths for both routes are estimated almost equally, but driving south can be a little tricky, as the road is narrower and more complicated. I recommend arriving at Cardenabbia and getting a ferry to avoid any stress. Plus, it’s an amazing opportunity to discover the lake views from the ferry.

Arrival in Florence. How to avoid problems with traffic limitations in Florence

Florence is notorious for its traffic limitations, so to avoid any problems while staying in the city center you would need to look for a property that offers valet-services and parking. We decided to stay at a 5-star hotel in the city center. The hotel’s staff helped us out with everything so that we just had to enjoy the property, its magnificent view overlooking the historic parts of the city.

Day 10. Discovering Tuscany’s sunflower fields and iconic cypress valleys

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and the road to the iconic valleys of this legendary region will take you about 1-1.5 hours of driving from the capital. We dedicated our second day to discovering natural Toscanian gems: sunflower fields, and cypress valleys. We drove south from Florence after breakfast and returned at dinner-time after sunset.

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

Does it worth staying at La Spezia?

Cinque Terre is an iconic Italian destination comprised of five aesthetic and picturesque villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. It is definitely worth visiting Cinque Terre as a part of a separate trip. But since we planned to stay in the region for two nights and we traveled by car, we chose to stay at La Spezia, which has a developed infrastructure and a very swift and reliable train connection to all five villages. It takes as little as only 5 minutes to get there by train. We stayed at the lovely hotel which is situated literally in front of a train station and has nice underground parking right in front of it. Basically, it took us about 10 minutes to get from our room to Monterosso al Mare.
