Benvenuto to Italy

Few places in the world match the charm and magic of Italy. Rich in both culture and history, there are an abundance of treasures to discover: Roman ruins, Renaissance art, intricate architecture, mountain peaks, placid lakes, urban cores and fortified villages.

The birthplace of la dolce vita or ‘the sweet life,’ Italy offers visitors delectable cuisine, equally delicious wine and cutting-edge fashion to indulge in. Combine all this with a mild climate, warm and friendly people and a beautiful language spoken by more than 70-million people worldwide and you will be sure to have a memorable Italian experience.
