Once home to the fabled Roman Empire and the Great Vatican, Italy has really seen the highest of highs in world history. Italy and France feel quite similar except the fact that Italy manages to come across as that cooler cousin who is more fashionable, more beautiful and yet, more approachable. Home to more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country on the planet, Italy is everything you want your holiday to be.
A trip to Italy means that you have some of the greatest arts and artifacts to give you company. Creations such as da Vinci’s Last Supper, Michelangelo’s David, Giotto’s frescoes, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Byzantine treasures and Sistine Chapel frescoes can be found here. Moreover, the country’s museums are also overflowing with some of the most important pieces of history from all over the world.
The Good Life
A trip to Italy always feels like a trip to 20 independent regions, each having its own culture, cuisine and traditions. You are literally spoiled for choice while in in the country, be it while exploring the souk-styled markets of Sicily or hopping through Gucci or Prada stores in Milan.
