A country synonymous with the good life, Italy is home to some of the finest cuisine, style, art, and culture in the world.
It is the birthplace of the Renaissance and the Roman Empire, the culinary soul of the Mediterranean, the catwalk for iconic fashion brands, and proud keeper of more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country on Earth. In Italy, you will find proud, passionate people, who place family and social life at the heart of all that they do. Discover endless feasting and sipping fine wines in all kinds of locations, from quaint ‘ristorantes’ in pretty piazzas, to stylish Michelin-starred venues, or rolling vineyards in the Valpolicella wine region. Explore the works of Old Masters, including Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes, take in the archaeological sites of Pompeii, or Byzantine mosaics of Venice’s St. Mark’s Basilica, and absorb the atmosphere of cities and villages steeped in history. Beyond the galleries, boutiques, and eateries, you will find a landscape of stunning natural diversity, including the soaring snow-capped Alps, beautiful lakes, rolling valleys, and dramatic coastlines.
