Italy

With over 60 million visitors a year, Italy is one of the most visited countries in the world. The nation boasts the most UNESCO World Heritages Sites of any country, stretching from the Roman Empire through to the Renaissance period.

Cities like Rome, Florence, Milan, Naples and Venice are just some of the most iconic, each with their unique attractions, architectures, fashions, culture and very importantly food. Culinary traditions are a part of life in Italy, and change incredibly from region to region: Foods to try in Italy include: Neapolitan pizza, pasta and lasagna from Bologna all the way to nationwide gelato.

Other places to visit are the uncountable charming villages and towns. From quaint alpine villages in the north, to the hillside hamlets in the center to beachside towns surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in the south, there are almost too many things to see and do: Skiing in the Alps, wine tasting in Tuscany or visiting archaeological sites in Pompeii. Italy has something to experience for everyone.
