Italy

It is easy to understand why Italy is one of the world’s most celebrated tourist destinations. This is a country that truly does have it all: exquisite landscapes, an abundance of art and architectural treasures, world renowned museums and a national obsession with decadent food and fine wine. Not to mention the country’s sun-kissed olive groves, glacial lakes, fiery volcanoes and snow capped peaks. Dive the clear green waters of the Mediterranean, browse the market stalls in Naples or experience the diverse wildlife inhabiting the country’s national parks. And if you find the vast range of choices overwhelming, take some advice from the locals: sit back, relax and take a moment to indulge in the “bella vita” (the good life). As they say: when in Rome!

Venice

Venice is a small, unique city with a historical centre consisting of 118 small islands linked together by a complex web of gondola packed canals and more than 400 footbridges. Imagine the audacity of building an entirely man-made city of marble palaces on a lagoon with no visible means of support. The inexplicable nerve required to undertake such a project is part of the mystery of this astonishing island city.

Hotels in Milan - Italy

Milan

Sitting at the forefront of international fashion, Milan’s sophisticated glitzy facade has afforded it a reputation for superficiality and excessive consumerism.

However, beneath its apparent pretentious exterior, hides a treasure trove of historical and architectural delights: From its glorious Gothic churches, Baroque mansions and Art Nouveau palazzos to the striking, modern skyscrapers of the Porta Nuova financial district.
