The German took a break from training after reaching the Final of the World Athletics Championships in Budapest at the end of August.
She will now focus on the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and has picked Italy as her vacation destination.
Schmidt, as usual, revealed part of her days off with her Instagram followers in a provocative blue bikini that garnered thousands of likes.
The model adored Florence, Firenze, and Tuscany in addition to the beaches, and she plans to spend a few more days in Amalfi, in the south of Italy, and possibly continue her vacation to the "country of the boot."
After being dubbed the world's sexiest athlete by Australian magazine Busted Coverage in 2017, the 24-year-old sprinter became a social media phenomenon.
In recent days, the German challenged Manchester City forward Erling Haaland to a 400-meter dash race: "I think I could compete with Haaland in 400 meters, but 200 meters might be harder.
We should ask him, but I'm always ready. If Haaland is ready to run, I'll be thrilled. See who's fastest!" added the German runner.
Schmidt has defeated his countrymen Matt Hummels in world athletics, thus this would be his second football match.
