Tourist guide Italy


Italy is a country soaked in history and culture, from the relics of the Roman Empire to the beauty of the Renaissance. Italy has plenty of variety from its modern, high-tech cities in the north, to its more agricultural, sun-kissed metropolises in the south; from its alpine mountains and lake resorts to its beautiful beaches. The appeal of Italy’s physical and cultural assets is perfectly complimented by its exquisite wine and foods, and together are the reasons why Italy embodies “La Dolce Vita”. Having won the bids for prestigious events such as the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy has invested heavily in upgrading business tourism infrastructure to rank amongst the best in the world. The accommodation and facilities boast a very high standard and are often associated with traditional Italian hospitality, which is as warm and traditional as a glass of Chianti. The spectacular scenery, glorious weather and a plethora of timeless art make Italy an incomparable destination for business or pleasure.
