Italy is a country where you can find beauty around every corner. There are few places with such a significant historical and cultural legacy. Italy will spoil you, no matter what type of traveller you are.

Be awed by the ancient monuments, architecture and art of Rome, Vatican or Milan. Get romantic in Venice, Florence or Verona. Forget about the outside world at the art galleries and museums. Stroll through the pretty historic town and villages, and soak in the atmosphere. Fall in love with the sceneries in the countryside. Enjoy the Mediterranean climate on the beaches. Get closer to nature and admire the mountains, lakes and dramatic coast.

And the cherry on top? Italian food! Who doesn’t like pizza, pasta or gelato? Not to mention Italian wine or coffee.

It is so easy to fall in love with Italy indeed…
