The Beautiful Country
Italy has a long and fascinating past. It is undoubtedly most famous for the Roman Empire, closely followed by its association with the Catholic Church and these historic links can be seen throughout the country. Italy is nicknamed the 'Beautiful Country' and it is not hard to see why. It has a little bit of everything, ranging from skiing and the Alps in the North to the stunning Amalfi coast on the Mediterranean. Tuscany produces some of the best wines in the world, and Venice is frequented by people around the world who wish to visit the 'Floating City'. There is so much on offer here that it would take a lifetime to see everything Italy has to offer...but it's certainly worth a try!
