Italy

From art to food, stunning and varied countryside to flamboyant fashion, Italy has it all.  It boasts one of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in Europe, the world's greatest hoard of art treasures, a mild climate, and most important of all for the many, a delicious and authentic national cuisine.

 

Rome is one of the world's greatest tourist destinations.  With a history spanning more than 28 centuries it is literally an open-air museum.  Venice is one of the most romantic and unique cities with its network of canals, bridges, beautiful buildings and gondolas.  Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance - the most important cultural centre between the 14th and 16th centuries. 

 

Stretching 50km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, is the Amalfi Coast, a postcard vision of Mediterranean beauty.  A popular destination is the region of Cinque Terre - an area which refers to five unique villages that 'cling' to the edge of the steep cliffs.  Mountains are covered by terraced vineyards, olive trees and countless dry stone walls that slope steeply down towards the sea and the five fishing villages.
