Breathtaking countryside, beautiful old cities, the Amalfi Coast and of course renowned cuisine are all on offer in Italy, a favourite with honeymooners and families alike. Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance built by merchants and bankers, has many treats for its visitors. Brunelleschi's Duomo, the Academia - home of Michelangelo's David - and Ghiberti's bronze Baptistery doors are just a few of them. Venice, the city of water, cannot fail to capture your imagination with its wonderful architecture, great cafe society and romantic gondola rides. Here there are many archaeological sites and buildings, as well as fabulous shopping and dining. Away from the bustle of the cities, Italy's countryside has enchanted the British since the era of the 'Grand Tour'. The stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast stands out for its spectacular coastlines, rugged cliffs, cascades of brightly coloured houses, lemon groves and olive trees on terraced hillsides, all tumbling down to an aquamarine sea. Tuscany is the home of vineyards, Cyprus trees and rounded hills, and the enchanting island of Sicily is full of art, history, breathtaking views and, as always in Italy, superb food.
