Home to a treasure trove of history, Italy’s iconic landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage sites are outstanding. See the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Colosseum, Vatican City and St Mark’s Basilica to name just a few. You can also visit world-renowned museums to admire works of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci.
Did someone say dreamy? Italy’s shores are showstopping, from the Bay of Naples to the Costa Smeralda. It’s all about lidos over on the mainland, while sandy sweeps and pebbly patches can be found all around Sardinia and Sicily. Fancy lakeside lazing with mountain views? Verona’s the gateway to Lake Garda.
Sink down in a family-run trattoria and devour rich pastas, hearty homemade pizzas and creamy risottos. Home-grown ingredients, such as juicy tomatoes, squidgy mozzarella and olive oil, make up these delights. Don’t forget to save some room for dessert – there’s silky-soft gelato, classic tiramisu and crispy cannoli to try!
