Stylish, cultured, good-humoured and volatile – Italy, with its golden light, stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage, has inspired poets and painters for centuries. Today, besides the renowned cities of Venice, Florence, Siena and Naples, each with its own unique identity and architecture, Italy features romantic medieval hill towns, such as San Gimignano in Tuscany, and unspoilt fishing villages, like Positano on the Amalfi coast. Throughout the country visitors can find vineyards and cellars to taste fine regional wines, workshops where crafts are produced by hand and friendly trattorie where simple but superb dishes are served. Italy combines art, history and contemporary fashion with stunning natural landscapes: the turquoise waters of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda offer one of Europe’s most beautiful stretches of sand, sea and sunshine, while the snow-covered slopes of the Dolomite Mountains are a haven for winter sports enthusiasts.
