Italy : Must See
The Italian "Dolce Vita", the atmosphere of the cities as well as the changing landscapes are as many treasures of the "Bel Paese" that Travel Europe offers you to discover with a wide range of programmes adapted to all tastes. Visitors can just as easily explore the wine and mountainous region of South Tyrol, take a bathing holiday at one of the many lakes, or soak up the sun at the Adriatic Sea. Each region steeped in history is full of curiosities and has its own identity.
The Amalfi Coast
Listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site, it is one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe. The famous towns of Amalfi - which gave the coast
its name - Ravello and Positano are among the must-sees. These towns and villages perched between sky and sea give the coast an unique charm.
Located in Sicily, near the city of Catania, Etna is the highest volcano in Europe (it rises to 3340 m above sea level) and one of the most
active in the world. Its numerous eruptions have transformed the surroundings into a lunar landscape.
The Lake District
Formed at the end of the last ice age, the lakes of northern Italy fascinate visitors in search of Dolce Vita. Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda,
Lake Como and Lake Iseo are the four most important lakes in Lombardy.
Close your eyes and imagine a picturesque landscape, hilly with cypresses and vines, where the earth has taken on an ocher color.
Tuscany, land of Siena and Renaissance, is famous for its old Chianti farmhouses which dominate the panorama. The charm of this region
is so famous many films are shot in this region of Italy.
With a view of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento offers an impressive panorama over the Gulf of Naples. Visiting Sorrento means indulging
in the picturesque streets, citrus groves, villas and a pleasant climate almost all year round. In addition to its beautiful bay and colorful
houses, Sorrento offers many hidden stairs and alleys in which you can stroll for hours.
The city of the Medici is today considered a city-museum, cradle of the Italian Renaissance - it alone brings together no less than 25% of the
works of Italian artistic heritage! The capital of Tuscany is also a city on the move, with a very lively nightlife. Among its emblematic sites,
do not miss the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery or the Piazza della Signoria where you can linger in front of the reproduction
of Michelangelo's David or the Palazzio Vecchio.
The City of the Doges, the Serenissima, the City of Waters or even that of lovers ... Venice has no shortage of nicknames, which only
confirm its mythical character. Considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice, city on the water, seduces not only by its
symbolic places such as Saint Mark's Square, the Rialto Bridge or the Bridge of Sighs, but also by the charm of its narrow alleys where the
laundry hangs from the windows
A true open-air museum, the Italian capital is a city like no other. Temples, ancient amphitheatres, churches, fountains and
Renaissance palaces are part of its architectural landscape. Beyond the must-sees such as the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, St. Peter's
Basilica, the Vatican or the Trevi fountain, it is particularly recommended to get lost in the streets of the "Eternal City" to discover
its nooks and crannies.
