Italy, an immense mountainous peninsula in the Mediterranean, offers all kinds of landscapes, cultural references and gastronomic traditions to justify frequent visits.
Disputing with Greece for the title of cradle of European civilisation, this is a political unit with a short history, but a conglomeration of important historical individuals beyond Rome.
Its length joins a long coastline with cultural, economic and scenic diversity, difficult to cover in just 3 or 4 visits.
Highlights in Italy:
Rome, Florence and Venice are world references, as are some of their beaches and islands.
History and art rub shoulders in every corner, and the predominance of mountainous terrain favours the landscape.
