Italy

Ancient empire, cultural wonder, tourist delight

Italy is as easily to consume as a fresh slice of pizza, as complex as the finest glass of Montepulciano. With most major cities connected by a convenient, inexpensive rail system, it’s a great place for the first-time backpacker while also a dependable delight for the seasoned explorer. Italy boasts an inspiring assemblage of artistic masterpieces, which seem to spill out of every church and museum right into each city's public square. It seems that every street possesses its own claim to historical or artistic greatness, which is all the more impressive considering the swirl of life that continues to flow through them every day. With good reason, connoisseurs empasize the Italian countryside, with its lush vineyards and sun-drenched Riviera. Take away Italy’s earth-shattering art, its stately ruins, and its vibrant culture, and it’s still one of the loveliest places on the planet. Combine all of this with the inherent friendliness of the Italians, and it becomes apparent how difficult it is to have a bad time here. Watch the sunset imbue the Coliseum in Rome, or drag the shadow of a cathedral across a plaza in Sienna, and feel the collision of past and present. Then go get an espresso-flavored gelatto. The famed Italian nightlife is just getting started.

  • Estoy muy identificado con el estilo de vida de Italia, todo en sí me dice algo de su historia actual o antigua. Lastima del afán turistico que se le ha dado ya a todo, en sí pierde su encanto. ANDIAMO

  • Except for a quick trip to San Remo recently, it has been years since I last spent any time in Italy. But I plan to remedy that in a couple of months! Will return here to post all the wonder of this beautiful country. One of my favorite places on earth, I could spend the rest of my life in a small village on Lake Como

  • l'Italia dei territori, ricca di segni e presenze di grande valore storico e identitario, con le loro biodiversità e identità territoriali materiali e immateriali caratterizzanti, garanzia di armonia tra uomo e ambiente; che, seppure potenzialmente rappresentino la vera e unica materia prima e forza economica italiana, rischiano di entrare definitivamente in crisi a causa dell'invadenza sempre più minacciosa della cementificazione disordinata e di aree metropolitane bulimiche, a scapito di vaste aree costituite da luoghi a misura d'uomo sempre più in stato di abbandono perché abbandonati da presidi agricoli.

  • Italy has always captured my imagination and since visting Rome I have realised it is so so much more than I ever expected. The history, the culture - the traffic. They're all compelling me to return and I'm more than willing :)

  • Más allá de sus monumentos, que sin lugar a dudas son asombrosos y nos remontan a antiguas épocas; Italia sorprende por sus tradiciones y su exquisita gastronomía. Variando muchísimo las costumbres del norte al sur de Italia, el viajero siempre descubrirá un nuevo encanto pasando de la elegancia de Padua a la vitalidad de Napoles y Palermo o a los encantos de Venecia.
