Cities

‘All roads lead to Rome', they used to say - because all roads did! And there is no other place better to start on a tour of Italy than this enchanting city. Visit the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican, the Forum and Colosseum, and explore the myriad of ancient fountains, piazzas, churches, monuments, and museums. Next, travel to the ‘city of art’, and capital of Tuscany, Florence where Renaissance began. Admire the intricate architecture untouched by time, and see the famous ‘David’ statue, as well as the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and the Pitti Palace. Step onto a movie set when you enter Venice, the ‘floating city’, known as being the most romantic city in Italy. For designer shopping, glamour, and a sensational gothic cathedral, make a stop in Milan - and don’t forget to see ‘The Last Supper’. Verona, city of the most famous lovers in history: Romeo and Juliet, also boasts a Roman Arena with outdoor opera in the summer months. For foodies, travel to Bologna, Italy’s food capital - and sample the delicacies of the surrounding regions like Parma Ham, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.


Lakes & Mountains

There are many lakes scattered all over Italy, but the string of glacial lakes on the border of Switzerland make up the ‘Lake Region’ - Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Como, and Lake Garda. The most sophisticated of all is Lake Como, with its steep cliffs, cobblestone lake towns, grand villas, and flowering gardens.


Beaches

There is a beach for everyone in Italy. The best and most beautiful are undoubtedly in the heel of the boot of Italy, known as Puglia. Endless sandy coves and wide golden beaches stretch all along the coastline. For the most diverse variety of wild, undiscovered beaches head to the Gargano Peninsula. The Amalfi Coast and Capri are the most glamorous beach locations in Italy, and the Cinque Terre region is perhaps the most rustic. Sicily has an impressive selection of sandy beaches, many are within easy reach of Taormina.


Countryside

The most photographed and painted countryside scenery in Italy almost certainly can be found in Tuscany. The landscape of the Val d’Orcia has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Images of the Val d’Orcia, and particularly landscapes where people are depicted as living in harmony with nature, have come to be seen as icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of landscape thinking. Farmhouses are

enriched by elements such as loggias, belvederes,

porches, and avenues of Cypress trees.
