Italy In A Nutshell


General Information for the detail-oriented

Its dreamy light and sumptuous countryside seem made for romance, and its three millennia of history, culture and cuisine seduce just about everyone.

You can visit Roman ruins, drink in Renaissance art, stay in tiny medieval hill towns, ski the Alps, explore the canals of Venice and stand in awe in beautiful churches. Naturally you can also indulge in the pleasures of la dolce vita: good food, good wine, good shopping, and maybe a little bit of flirting. In Italy everything is possible.

Any time of the year is ideal to enjoy Italy's treasures; history and beauty are always in season.
