Showcasing the world’s greatest art treasures on fittingly spectacular cities and buildings, a climate suitable for skiing holidays or tanning on the beach, delicious and authentic cuisines all make this a truly wonderful experience for all. Many of the old clichés still ring true; once you’ve visited, you may never want to travel elsewhere.
Known as one of the world’s most celebrated tourist destinations, Italy hosts hundreds of local festivals which take place across the country throughout the year.
However, if all you want to do is relax, there are a number of places to lie on a beach, from the resorts filled with regimented rows of sunbeds to secluded and less developed spots. And if you’re looking for an active holiday, there’s no better place as the mountains run the country’s length, skiing and other winter sports are practiced avidly and wildlife of all sorts thrives in the country’s national parks.
