Travel to Italy
Italy is a fantastic country to visit. It stretches far, from rural Sicily to trendy and fashionable Milan; from glorious Venice and jetset Lake Como where George Clooney settled down, to the beautiful Amalfi coast. Steeped in history, made famous by wealthy families like the Medici - patrons of the art, Italy has so much to look at, that is easy to stumble on the cobblestoned streets as you gaze in awe at everything you see around you.
The cuisine is fantastic and Italian cooking is among the world's richest and most varied, with dishes perfect for every occasion.

Travel Highlights Italy
Amalfi is the principal jewel of the famous Amalfi Coast in Campania, Italy. Once a major seafaring power, the town's traditions and historical buildings bear witness to Amalfi's glorious past.
The Isle of Capri is famous the world over as a classy and beautiful holiday destination. Capri is reminiscent of dreamy seaviews, of 1950s celebrities in big sunglasses, or of lazy summer evenings spent browsing in exclusive boutiques.
Florentines and their city never fail to impress. From the stunning Michelangelo's David to the breathtaking Uffizi, from colourful markets to elegant designer stores, you will find yourself mesmerised by Florentine life, where nothing much seems to have changed since the days of the Medici.
Nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is simply breathtaking. It's hard to describe Rome in a few words; a city so vast and rich in art, monuments and exquisite views, a historic city, which has preserved its charm and independence throughout the centuries.Rome's history can be read in every monument, and palazzo; in fact, each and every stone bears witness to the periods of splendour, decay, wars, and numerous architectural styles. One of the seven hills on which Rome was built and where most of the Roman archaeological treasures were found. The city extended over six other hills: Quirinale, Viminale, Esquilino, Celio, Aventino and Capitolino.
Sicilia, the island in the sun, is home to Heavenly beaches, majestic mountains and Europe's greatest natural wonder, Mount Etna. Sicily's coasts are gold with orange and lemon orchards. In North Eeastern Sicily you'll find lush forests. In the central regions you'll encounter rugged land and rolling hills. Dignified vineyards, ancient olive groves, hardy almond orchards and endless wheat fields complete the picture. Summer is amber land under a sky of blue. Winter finds palm trees dusted with snow in a surreal symphony. Spring is a rainbow of wild flowers set against greenest fields...
Sorrento is situated on a plain above the sea, overlooking the Bay of Naples. The view from Sorrento stretches back to the north, encompassing Vesuvius, the city of Naples, and the island of Ischia. It has a pretty old town, a harbour with ferry departures to Capri, Amalfi and Naples, and is within easy reach of the Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Herculaneum and the city of Naples. There is some good walking in the peninsula, and plenty of restaurants and bars for the less energetic.
Tuscany is possibly the greatest art collector of the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. You can explore fine art, the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture.
