Explore the everlasting beauty of Italy
With its rich cultural heritage and stunning natural beauty, Italy has something for everyone. From romantic Venice to immortal Rome and the stunning cliffs of the Amalfi, the options are endless.
Winner of the 2004 European City of Culture, this beautiful seaport town boasts magnificent Baroque palaces and church spires, all crowning this city with undeniable charm. It’s no wonder that the birthplace of world-renowned explorer Christopher Columbus is affectionately referred to as la Superba.
The Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast’s dramatic cliffs are dappled with rustic fishing villages offering magnificent views along its 46 miles. The fragrant lemon groves mix with sea air, providing a truly Mediterranean experience as you stroll along the coastal walkways such as the Path of the Gods with its Roman temple remains from a bygone age. Whether you visit in the blooming spring which lasts well into summer, or the autumn to enjoy the splendour of the changing colours, your trip to Italy wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the Amalfi Coast.
Don’t forget the Dolomites, with their sumptuous summits and granite peaks. Watch the sunset paint the rock in endless hues, kayak down the tumbling South Tylorean waters and experience the cascading waterfalls. Enjoy a bird’s eye view hang-gliding and paragliding. Whatever you get up to, the Dolomites are sure to satisfy.
Venice is practically synonymous with romance. From waterways and gondolas to picturesque bridges and stately squares such as St Mark’s and its Basilica of San Marco, Venice is hard to beat. Drifting down the Venetian waterways is just about as relaxing as it gets.
The Eternal City’s magnificent architecture make it easy to visualise how grand it once was. St Paul’s Square, along with the Vatican’s masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel, delight the visitor. It’s easy to think you can hear the distant echoes of crowds drifting down the corridors of the Colosseum standing in the midst of this world wonder. Rome also enjoys an enviable nightlife.
Italy truly has everything a visitor could wish for. Don’t forget to take your European Health Insurance Card for complete peace of mind during your adventure in Italy.
