Italy offers much to see and explore, in the northwestern regions the Alps offer stunning skiing opportunities, further south is beautiful countryside and city holidays in Rome and Naples.

One of Italy’s most beautiful and well-known cities is Venice. This city on the water is unlike any other and attracts visitors from all over the world; many are couples looking for a perfect location for that romantic holiday.

Italy’s capital is Rome, one of the most historic and visited cities in the world. There are many things to see and do in Rome; one of the most popular attractions is the Colosseum, once a place used by emperors to entertain the public with battles to the death, stands today in ruin. Other great attractions include the Pantheon and the Circus Maximums, once used for Chariot Racing.

The Alps run into northern Italy and offer many runs to ski down for skiers of all skill levels. The Alps and the surrounding region offers amazing scenery that few other places in the world can match. Italy is also famous for it’s Vineyards and there are many throughout the country that allow their visitors to taste the produce.
