Holidays to Italy
Italy as a country is considered by many to be the jewel of Europe. The many regions that make up Italy each have a charm and beauty of their own. In historical terms these regions have only recently been united having come together as a nation in 1861. This explains the very many differences in character, culture and cuisine of the regions which all add to Italy's appeal. To decide on a destination, you need to ask yourself what it is you want from an Italy holiday. It may be visiting cultural centres, walking in hills and mountains or lazing on sandy beaches.
Pizza & Pasta are always on the menu
Don't forget to take the islands of Sardinia and Sicily into your considerations. Whichever you choose, you'll find a cheap Italy holiday to suit. In the north of the country you'll find the Italian Lakes in an area of outstanding natural beauty. In the north east you can visit the truly unique city of Venice with its magnificent architecture, its waterways, and its wonderful works of art. Close by is the Venetian Riviera with wonderful sandy beaches offering pleasant bathing. If its beaches you are after, the Neapolitan Riviera has rocky coves and beaches, and the islands are perfect spots for those wishing to relax by the sea. Italian city breaks are very popular and can be enjoyed at any time of year. If you are visiting Rome, early and late season is best as the city can become extremely hot in the middle of summer.
Italian food is renowned for its tastiness which is why, wherever you are in the world, you can always order pasta and pizza. However, Italian cuisine has much more to offer and each region has its own speciality. Be adventurous, give your taste buds a treat and you'll enjoy the experience. Italy also produces fine wines.
