There are still a few weeks left of summer, so you might have a holiday left to look forward to. Could that holiday by an unforgettable trip to the country of romance, fine food and ancient history? We are, of course, talking about Italy.
If not, here are just some of the reasons why you should consider booking a trip to this beautiful country next year.
Roman History Preserved
There are a few scattered remnants of the Roman empire left around countries like England. But if you want to experience it come to life, you must visit the birthplace. You should start by exploring the Colosseum in Roma. This incredible feat of architecture shows Roman culture in it’s true horror and splendour.
The building is a captivating sight. But you should never forget it was built so thousands could watch men die valiantly as sport and entertainment. There is a reason this piece of history is so popular with tourists from all over the world.
Your next stop on the tour of a stunning country embedded in history should be the tragic mark left by Mt Vesuvius in Pompeii. We all know the story of that fateful night, but not many get to experience the aftermath of what happened.
Although horrifying, there is an apparent morbid curiosity when you see the remains of those trapped in the destruction up close. There is also the chance to see an almost completely preserved Roman village, a sight that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
Stunning Oceans And Enchanting Villages
But, we don’t want you to get the wrong idea about this mesmerising place. It is not just a tour of history come to life. There is so much more to see and do. For instance, you would be losing an incredible chance if you did not take a trip down to Cinque Terre.
It is a wonderful little town perched on the edge of the coast with dazzling views of a diamond ocean. If you want to experience it in all its splendour, rent a boat in the harbour and take a trip along the coastline.
There you will find private beaches, where you can drop anchor and go for a swim in one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of water. Explore Italy for all its wonder and then head back to your luxury rented villa to relax by the pool, under the shade.
Dine On Delicious Meals Every Night
Italian cuisine is legendary. You will find copycat restaurants, no matter where you are in the world. But there is nothing quite like experiencing it first hand. You must try some of the delicious foods that the country has to offer.
You will be amazed by how much better it tastes when it is made by the chefs who had the recipes passed on from generation to generation. Once you experience it for the first time, you will never want to leave.
The truth is this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty more reasons why Italy is the holiday destination of your dreams.
