If high quality is important to you then Italy is the country of choice. In Italy they are passionate about... Food!
You will almost certainly want to take some tasty treats home with you to remind you of your holiday in Italy, whether that be some delicious olive oil or a bottle or two of sun-drenched wine from the region. Do not leave though without a visit to one of the more imposing cities in Italy such as romantic Venice, Florence or the fashion capital of the world - Milan.
As well as the world famous food, fashion plays a large role in the life of the Italians.
Whichever Italian city or region you choose to visit, you can be sure Italy has something to offer all tastes. We recommend you try delicious Italian gelati (ice cream) available in a variety of flavours..... Like history? then there are many historic sites to choose from with Rome being on the top of the list. Outside of the many fantastic cities of Italy the scenery is also aesthetically pleasing - winding roads with cypress and olive trees merge with romantic hilltop towns and rugged rocky coasts. It is safe to say that anyone who has visited Italy will want to go back at least once more.
