Most countries would struggle to live up to a nickname like the Bel Paese, meaning 'beautiful country', yet Italy does it with ease. Modern life blends effortlessly with ancient history in Rome, which still draws thousands of visitors to its frescoed churches and impressive ruins.

Culture prevails in Florence, and the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance boasts world famous collections of art and architecture. Trendsetting Milan, meanwhile, has made its named as Italy’s fashion capital, with glamorous Via della Spiga the destination of choice for the ultra stylish.

Couples looking for a romantic escape may prefer the gondola-filled canals of charming Venice, while Sardinia's pristine beaches are as popular as ever with the Italian elite looking for a summer break in the sun. Venture further inland for rugged countryside, lakes packed with flamingoes, and vineyards serving their own brands of robust wine.

Rome

Relics of the Ancient Roman civilisation are scattered everywhere in Italy's capital, yet these beautiful ruins and structures feel perfectly integrated into the modern city. Although these historical landmarks remain a significant draw for tourists, new events like the Rome Film Festival and summer's 'Gay Village' event mean Rome's present is now as appealing as its past.

The famous historic attractions are worth making time for. Be sure to visit the Colosseum and catacombs, while Baroque churches, including Santa Maria della Vittoria, and the classical artworks of the Capitoline Museums, are more modern highlights. Foodies will find plenty to tempt their taste buds in the city’s abundant pizzerias and trattorias, where simple regional fare like pasta alla carbonara reigns supreme.

Once you step away from the tourist sights, you’ll find plenty hidden away in the city's less-explored neighbourhoods. Esquilino is easily reached by public transportation, yet its rustic bakery cafes and small but bustling Piazza Vittorio Market feel worlds away from the crowded city centre.
