Located in the south of central Europe, Italy is a natural masterpiece boasting uncanny natural diversity. From the wild Alpine peaks and glacial lakes on the north; through lagunes and lush rolling hills in the center; to sandy beaches, fiery craters and turquoise caves in the south… Italy will inspire and move you.
This rather small country sitting on a peninsula in an elegant shape of a boot is also home to the moral and intellectual faculties of human civilization. Philosophy, literature, music, religion, sciences, and gastronomy have flourished within Italian borders for centuries. Having been the epicenter of the Roman Empire and cradle of Renaissance, Italy will introduce you to the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo’s David, and Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. To be honest, Italy comprises more UNESCO World Heritage Sights than any other country in the world. Hence, its entire cultural offering is enough to fill a decade.
However, Italian way of life is far from being stuck in the past. On the contrary, Italians are known to embrace style and flair in every facet of their daily lives. From immaculate and extravagant wardrobes, perfectly balanced espressos, to the dedication of perfecting the little things, the root of living the “vita all'Italiana” lies in living well. So, when in Italy, step on a break, slow down, style up and take a generous bite of life.
Speaking of bites, beyond the landscapes, galleries, and wardrobes, Italy hides another forte: its decadent cuisine. The superior gastronomy is typical for its high-quality ingredients and intuitive know-how. From the simplest street food to the Micheline-star restaurant, Italian culinary expertise will not let you down.
Italian cultural, historic, culinary, and natural heritage can accommodate even the pickiest travelers. One day, you can be wine tasting in the rolling hills of Chianti; the next you can be galloping on horseback in Maremma; snorkel along the Ligurian coast; walk across Pompei, the city frozen in time; savor a true Italian gelato or admire the masterpieces in the Vatican City...
