Discovering Italy

Up and down the penisula

Twenty regions and over a hundred provincial cities: these are the numbers of Italy as a political and administrative unit, reflected in the variety of customs and traditions, differing colours and smells, in local idioms and regional histories.
Throughout our long history, from prehistory, through the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans to the Second World War up to today, we see Italy as the cradle of Mediterranean civilisation, with a glorious past which has left its mark in an infinite number of architectural and artistic witnesses in Italian cities and urban centres.
From Aosta to Cagliari, from Milano to Palermo, from Venice to Rome: whether they be on the sea or in the mountains, in the plains or along the rivers, on the shores of a lake or in the countryside, Italian cities are unique. In this section the tourist in love with art, culture and history can learn about the characteristics of all the major regional and provincial cities in Italy,and about the monuments gracing their squares, streets and historical sites.
Of course if you so desire, you can also have a look at the regions themselves, permitting a foretaste of the holiday full of fun and relaxation in wait for you up and down the Peninsula.
