Whether you're in search of a beach upon which to relax, a gallery or museum to peruse, seemingly endless countryside to roam, or a bustling city to explore, Italy will take your breath away; a country for every kind of holiday, Italy's charms will leave you spoilt for choice. Its capital, for example, boasts striking architecture, an incredibly artistic heritage, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere that has tempted top designers and big brands alike, although it was once at the heart of an astonishing, formidable empire.
Away from its capital city Italy has so much to tempt and inspire, including the canals of Venice
, the beautiful Capri Amalfi Coast
, the sun-drenched islands of Sardinia
and Sicily, and the rustic appeal of Puglia
, as well as sites of historical importance such as Pompeii and Herculaneum, and culture-rich cities including Florence and Naples. Bellissimo!
