Italy is a place you can visit, re-visit and visit again.
Sometimes I long of going there and getting lost….permanently, in the hills of the Tuscan Wine Country or the bustling markets in Rome. It is truly the ultimate destination….something for everyone, regardless of your travel style, dreams and desires.
You can visit Roman ruins, enjoy Renaissance art, take refuge in tiny medieval hill towns, go skiing in the Alps, explore the canals of Venice, and gaze at beautiful churches. Naturally, you are sure to indulge in the pleasures of la dolce vita: good food, good wine and improving your wardrobe.
From the Arab-Norman and Byzantine wonders of Palermo in Sicily, to the majestic peaks of the Dolomites, Italy is a movable feast of endless courses.
No matter how much you gorge yourself on its splendors, you always feel you haven’t made it past the antipasti. Few countries offer such variety and few visitors leave without a fervent desire to return.
The Italians are not joking when they call their home Il Belpaese, the Beautiful Country.
