The country has one of the most varied climates in Europe, from the sunny wine-producing areas of Sicily, to the Alps with its ski resorts; it is a haven for tourists of all persuasions. Italy has many of the most famous holiday destinations in Europe. There is Verona, Sienna, Florence, and Venice.

More than a Roman holiday

Many tourists choose to travel to Rome and stay there. You might also be tempted to spend your holiday soaking up the artistic and cultural life of past centuries, and the bustling life of today. Other regions of Italy offer a further range of activities. There is skiing on Mont Blanc, exploring the canals in Venice, and strolling around the harbour in Genoa. Every region of Italy offers its unique combination of climate, scenery, cuisine, and the hospitality of the people.

From pizza to panettone

The cuisine of Italy is not all pizza and pasta. There are many delicious regional dishes. From the gelato of Rome to the bean dishes of Tuscany, there is always a new taste to enjoy. Some of the specialities in Italian cuisine are; pesto (a sauce of pecorino cheese, pine nuts and basil), parmigiano cheese, and Panettone, which is a cake containing candied fruit and sultanas. Wine is a major element in Italian food culture. Notable examples include Chianti from Tuscany, Frascati and Albano from Rome, and liqueurs such as Strega, Grappa and Limoncello.

Olive groves and mountain skiing

Italy is a great place to visit all year round. The main tourist season is between April and June, when the weather is most stable. During September and October, the weather is still quite mild but the tourist spots are less crowded. During the warmer months the lush landscape and sandy coastline of Tuscany attract many visitors. The pine trees and olive groves of Umbria are also major attractions. The Summer in Italy is still quite mild, except for the mountain regions of the NortHP. Here is where skiers from all over the world gather to enjoy resorts such as Cervinia, Livigno, and Passon Tonale.
