Italy really does take some beating.

Whether you’re a foodie, a history buff, a skier, fashionista, beach bum, gelato aficionado, or a renaissance art enthusiast – you’ll get your fix (and a lot more) in Italy.

Head north for the epic scenery of the Dolomites.  Or south to the idyllic hilltop villages of Sicily.  Or visit one of Italy’s legendary historic cities – Rome, Naples, Bologna, Venice, Florence, to name but a few.

Pompeii-and-Mount-Vesuvius

Everywhere you go, you’ll find incredible archeological remains, evidence of Italy’s long, rich history.  There are more UNESCO World Heritage sites here than in any other country, not to mention some of the best-preserved (and most famous) ancient buildings in the world.

Italian food and wine is up there with the best in the world.  There’s nowhere better to gorge on pasta, pizza, risotto, cheese, seafood, cannoli… the list goes on.

It’s hard not to fall in love with il Bel Paese.
