Regions in Italy
Where to go in Italy, from the romantic ‘Floating City’ of Venice to the sophistication of the Amalfi Coast
From the north to the south, in Italy you’ll be spoilt for choice with varying regions, cities and landscapes to visit. For history, art and a touch of la dolce vita, while away your days in the cultural hearts of Rome, Florence and Sicily. If you’re after a bit of peace and quiet in the country, then the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria will seduce you with their tranquillity and rustic charms. For a cosmopolitan stay where the A-list are likely to frequent the shores, you’ll be spoilt for choice between the Mediterranean sophistication of the Amalfi Coast, the dreamy white-sand beaches of Sardinia, and the sumptuous villas and classic villages of the glitzy Italian Lakes. Romantics will be enchanted by the star-crossed city of Verona and the timeless charm of Venice, while adventurists will love the national parks and volcanic landscape of rural Basilicata.
