A nurse’s job is by no means, an easy profession. Working alongside doctors to enduring 12+ hours of continuous shifts without any break, nurses are superheroes. They also provided and keep on working hard to provide immense support as the front-line workers for treating patients with COVID-19. In fact, Forbes listed nursing as the third most dangerous occupation.

Nurses need time off too!

With a high demanding job, that requires both mental and physical strength, some time away from the stressful job is definitely required that will freshen nurses up, and some pressure from the ER is released. It is, therefore, very important for nurses to prioritize their mental and physical health too and indulge in a little getaway that will help with fatigue, burnout, and job stress.

If you are a nurse planning a vacation from your hectic job, we have picked some of the cheapest and exotic destinations in Italy that will reenergize you for work and increase work productivity.

Why Italy?

The first important feature of Italy is its closeness with other countries like France, Austria, and Slovenia. You can roam around the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg, enjoy the most decadent croissants in Paris and treat your eyes to beautiful lakes in the Julian Alps, all in one week! Another reason is that Italy is very budget-friendly when it comes to traveling places for nurses. The fascinating cuisine, landscape, culture, art, and history lures travelers and professionals alike to Italy to have once in a lifetime adventure.

So here are some of the best picks In Italy in no particular order that will give you the ultimate experience without breaking your bank.

1. Colosseum in Rome

If you plan to travel to Italy, don’t miss the 1900-year-old grand Colosseum located on Palatine Hill. There is nothing more that elaborates the history more than this Roman masterpiece.

2. Pizza in Naples

You know that classic pizza, covered in tomato sauce, cheese, and basil leaves? Yes, that was invented in Naples back in 1889. To this day, Pizza in Naples is considered a classic around the world. So, this culinary gem is a must-try when you visit Italy.

3. Lake Como

Located in the northern part of Italy, the y-shaped Lake Como is one of the scenic lakes in Europe. Being the destination of pure beauty, and breathtaking views, Lake Como is a world within a world and a perfect place to spend your holidays like George Clooney.

4. David of Michelangelo in Florence

If you crave to see some artistic stuff in Italy, there’s nothing better to become a museum patron for a day and visiting Accademia Gallery – to see a 2-story sculpture. This statue created in the 1500s is a renaissance wonder.

In a nutshell,

It is never easy to leave the hospital. But take the time off, and fly off to Italy to recover from the stress and burnout you feel after long hours of work. If you disconnect from the work for a while and don’t let your inbox get the best of you, you’ll feel more content in your work, and experience more satisfaction with the job.
