With long stretches of Mediterranean and Amalfi coastline, Italy has the beautiful Tuscan countryside, vineyards, charming cities and fabulous food. Head to Florence for Renaissance architecture, to Venice, the "city of water", or to Rome for beautiful historical monuments. As well as beautiful cities, the island of Sicily has brilliant coastal scenery.
Breathtaking countryside, beautiful old cities, the Amalfi Coast and, of course, renowned cuisine are all on offer in Italy, a favorite with honeymooners and families alike. Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, has many treats for visitors. Brunelleschi's Duomo, the Academia - home of Michelangelo's David - and Ghiberti's bronze Baptistery doors to name just a few. Venice cannot fail to capture your imagination with its wonderful architecture, great cafe society and romantic gondola rides, not to mention archaeological sites and buildings, as well as fabulous shopping and dining.
Away from the bustle of the cities, Italy's countryside has enchanted travelers from around the world for generations. The stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast stands out for its rugged cliffs, cascades of brightly colored houses, lemon groves and olive trees on terraced hillsides, all tumbling down to an aquamarine sea. Tuscany is home to vineyards, cypress trees and rounded hills. The enchanting island of Sicily is full of art, history, breathtaking views and, as always in Italy, superb food.
