Italy is one of the most visited countries by tourists in Europe. Everyone does seem to have a concept idea about Italy as a home country of olive oil, pasta, wine, and sunshine. Rome’s martial monuments, Florence’s Renaissance glories and romanticism of Venice are all well known for many of
us.However as one have said Italy iis as ‘easily to consume as a fresh slice of pizza and as complex as the finest glass of Montepulciano’. Indeed it is difficult to classify this country and it has much more to offer to its tourist than you might think at first.
It is a modern, industrialized nation. It is the harbinger of style, its designers leading the way with each season's fashions. But it is also, to an equal degree, a Mediterranean country, with all that that implies.
It seems that every street possesses its own claim to historical or artistic greatness.
You will find there magnificent roman ruins and renaissance palaces but it will also fascinate you with the beautiful landscape, no matter where will you decide to head first- in the north, next to the Alps or to highly developed industrial cities, you are still going to be amazed by its beauty. The north is the paradise for every culinary interested traveller and wine lovers. You will find here the best Piemonte, which is related with Barolo and Barbaresco, the most famous wines made out of the Nebbiolo grape.
Lombardia is the capital of Milan, city of business organization and haute couture. Bergamo with his magnificant upper Old Town is only an hour of distance from there. Less famous is the red-blooded hedonism of Italy’s foodie capital, Bologna, and the edgy atmosphere of Naples’ high-voltage historic centre.
Much of southern Italy is mountainous and remote, its forbidding landscape largely overlooked by foreign visitors. Mountains run the country's length - from the Alps and Dolomites in the north right along the Apennines, which form the spine of the peninsula - and are actually an important reference-point for most Italians.
There you can enjoy the life in the countryside.
You can ski in the Alps, hike the Dolomites or dive off Sardinia’s golden coast.
If you combine it all: the country’s ruins, art and vibrant culture with the friendliness, cheerfulness and craziness of Italians itself it seems really difficult to not to have an amazing time here!
Last but not least don’t forget in this exciting country the people live the "la vita Italiana" they embrace life to the full, so as much as all of this, a trip to Italy is about lapping up the lifestyle. It’s about idling over a coffee at a streetside cafe or lingering over a long lunch in the hot Mediterranean sun.
