Italy was one of the first countries with a real tourism. This does actually not surprise considering the fact that Italy offers a coast line length of more than 7000 kilometers, from the Adria in the North near Venice, across Bari at the “boot’s heel” via Catania in the south of Sicily up the coast again across Naples and Rome up to Genova in the North West. Italy is combined with sun and beach, and if you ever happened to spend your summer holidays in Italy, you won’t be disappointed about that.
Italy is though much more than just beaches and sun. The majestic Apennine mountain range stretches from north to south on the Italian peninsula, The Etna mountain range stretches over Sicily and in the north you can find the southern part of the Alps. Thus, even great winter holidays can be spent in Italy, especially in South Tyrol, the Aosta Valley and the north of the Lombardy region where there are a lot of well equipped ski resorts.
Italy has also ever since been connected with fashion and art. Especially Milano is well known for its fashion week and Italy is home of many designers such as Armani, Versace or Dolce & Gabbana. Check out the many churches and cathedrals with their beautiful architecture and frescos inside or the many museums showing the high abilities of this country’s painters, sculptors and craftsmen.
But what would Italy be without pizza and pasta? Forget everything you heard about those “bad” carbohydrates and enjoy genuine Italian cuisine and the light but distinct flavours of tomatoes, olives, olive oil, fresh sea food and delicious wine!
