This beautiful country is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, and for good reason too. Not only is the food one of the most popular and tantalising cuisines, with authentic pizza, pasta and fresh from the market ingredients, visitors are spoilt for choice with incredible things to see and do. Italy is home to more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country, with museums, Roman ruins, Renaissance palaces, awe-inspiring architecture and some of the world’s greatest works of art – along with espressos, gelato, Chianti and scooters. The natural diversity is second to none, with skiing in the snowy alps, kite-surfing on the glacial lakes in the north to hiking forested mountains in the south and visiting active volcanoes such as Mount Etna on the island of Sicily. Italy draws in millions of tourists each year to stylish cities such as Milan, Florence, Rome and Venice. If you prefer a relaxing beachside holiday with stunning panoramas and crystal clear waters then the Amalfi Coast, Sardinia, Capri and Ischia beckon.
