Pictures of Italy

Italy is the country of Southern Europe and is one of the greatest treasures of sensual pleasures on earth. From art to food, from stunning and diverse areas to unusual fashion, Italy has it all.

It should be mentioned that there are also two independent states on its territory - San Marino and the Vatican - which are completely surrounded by Italian territory.

With its 44 UNESCO-listed tourist attractions, Italy has more protected world heritage sites than any other country in the world. Its great "Cities of Art" such as Rome, Venice and Florence have been attracting visitors for centuries, and with good reason. In addition to Italian art treasures, you will find many interesting things in the rural area of โ€‹โ€‹the country that will definitely capture your attention.

The capital - Rome - is located in central Italy, in the region of Lazio - but practically extends to the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Wherever you scratch beneath the surface in the Eternal City, you will come across an archeological site from prehistory, so it is not surprising that millions of tourists from all over the world visit it every year. Italy is also a popular city of fashion - Milan and Verona, the region of Tuscany, and numerous ski resorts in the Alps during the winter months.

As for the cultural characteristics of the country, Italy played a significant role in culture and art very early on. Roman antiquity was a model for other European countries during the Roman Empire. Italian painting, sculpture and architecture are very famous. This grandiose country of art has been home to many great artists such as Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci.

Donโ€™t skip a tour of the five villages of the colorful facades of the Cinque Terre, โ€œholdโ€ the leaning tower in Pisa, stop next to an art corner in Florence and experience the unique scene of the only active volcano โ€“ Etna.

Italian gastronomy is among the most famous in the world. It is based on different types of pasta that are combined with tomato and meat sauces, various spices and the inevitable olive oil. Of course, we must not forget the pizza - the Italian culinary flagship - that is eaten all over the world. Along with the food of this area, locally produced wine is served, and the culture of drinking coffee is strong.

You can travel to Italy at any time, but the best period is from April to June. Most Italians travel in July and August, so the two months in which prices rise are best avoided.

A trip to Italy will help you understand why it is a favorite country for many.
