History, art, culture, and stunning natural beauty. Italy has it all, from the ski slopes of the Alps to the golden coastlines, countrysides of vineyards and the smoldering volcanic mountains of Vesuvius and Mt Etna. Italien boasts more Unesco World Heritage than any other country (44 sites).

Start by visiting Rome, Florence and Venice. In Rome, there are enough famous sites to make your head spin. Take a tour of the city and see the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps. In Florence, don't miss the Uffizi Gallery, home to the works of Titian, Botticelli, Michelangelo and da Vinci. And while you are in Florence, be sure to go just south to the Chianti region of the country, which is world-renowned for its wines. Finally, the canals and gondolas of Venice are a must-have experience. In addition to being such a gorgeous, unique city, this water-filled city also has more artistic masterpieces per square kilometer than any other city o­n earth.
In southern Italien, the Amalfi Coast offers countless sites and activities.
