    Major Tourist Attractions: Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter's Basilica, Lake Como

    With a rich history, beautiful countryside and delicious food, no wonder Italy is one of most popular tourist destinations in the world. From the Alps through Rome to Venice along the coast down to Sicily, Italy is a great destination for many types of travelers.Italy is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and one that somehow actually manages to live up to the hype. As the birthplace of the Renaissance, the Roman Empire and ravioli, Italy has a little something for everyone from Rome to Venice. Immerse yourself in ancient ruins, take a leisurely drive through the Tuscan hillside or just relax in a piazza with an espresso and enjoy Italy's greatest attraction of all: la dolce vita (the sweet life). The best time to visit Italy is whenever you’re ready, because this remarkable country has something to offer in any season.

    Located in Southern Europe, the history of Italy mirrors the history of Western Civilization. From the legacy of the Roman Empire to setting modern day fashion trends, Italy has managed to remain relevant across the millennia. Modern Italy as we know it though is a young country, forming in the 19th century. The legacy of the power of the cities and regions can be seen everywhere and a visit to some of the most important towns is almost like visiting another country altogether. In fact, there are two other countries completely enclosed by Italy – Vatican City and San Marino. Both are tiny, but sovereign states adding some international panache to your trip.

    • Take a drive around the twisty, cliff-side roads of the Amalfi Coast
    • Eat some of the best food in the world while in the Emilia-Romagna Region
    • Visit some of Italy’s islands like Sicily
    • Take an epic train ride through the Italian Alps
    • Go underground in Rome and discover the darker side of the city’s history
    • Splurge on a corny but fun gondola ride in Venice
    • Drive a sports car of your dreams around the back roads of Italy
