Italy is a peninsula almost entirely surrounded by the sea. With thousands of miles of coastline, there are plenty of beaches, fishing villages, hilltop towns with panoramic coastal views, and seaside resorts to explore. It’s a dreamy, idyllic place, dedicated to the art of living well and appreciating the finer things. And in Italy, there are plenty of fine things to be appreciated. Like the country’s deep ancient history: historic monuments, remnants of the Roman Empire, and as the birthplace of the Renaissance, countless cultural treasures and artistic masterpieces. Travel breathtakingly scenic routes along winding roads, through acres of lush olive groves, rolling vineyards, and charming rustic towns, and you’ll appreciate the world-renowned Italian cuisine and its dedication to fresh local ingredients. Not to mention the nation’s stock of extraordinary prized wines. If it’s excitement you seek, Italy has that, too. Fascinating urban centers, romantic cities, and a diverse landscape that is very conducive to any number of active pursuits for the active traveler: cycling, walking, swimming, riding the ferry to Giglio Island, and relaxing in thermal pools only found in Montecatini. It’s OK to fall in love. You’re in good company.
From Charles Dickens to Ernest Hemingway to Franz Liszt, the world’s most creative minds have long drawn inspiration from Italy’s Lake District.
