Italy

Italy, a country in Europe with a well known history, culture and cuisine and one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.

Italy is a country in the shape of a boot which lies at the Mediterranean sea and is well know for its lifestyle, fashion, tasty food, luxury sports-cars, sunny weather and its love for football. It is also home to one of the oldest civilizations, the Roman empire of which many impressive remains of its prosperity are still seen today. Examples of these are the Roman Forum and Colosseum in Rome or the city Pompeii which was once covered by ash from the volcano Vesuvius when it erupted. In medieval times the country got more split between north and south which is still visible today as both parts have different cultures. Italy is a country with many places to visit and it would be easy to spent a couple of weeks there. Some of its most visited cities include Venice, Florence, Rome and Naples. It is also home to some very nice regions with some amazing scenery such as the hills of Tuscany and Sicily where the countryside is enjoyable. For a splash of water Italy has several nice beaches and some of the best can be found on the Amalfi coast or in Capri. When it comes to food the Italians do know how to prepare a good meal and excellent restaurants can be found in any town or city.
