Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider booking a trip to Italy.

Roman History Preserved

There are a few scattered remnants of the Roman empire left around countries such as England, but if you want to experience it come to life, you must visit the birthplace. You should start by exploring the Colosseum in Rome. 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. You can see the Coliseum and many more beautiful historical sites through various tours of Rome.
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.

The spiritual home of pizza

Naples, a city in southern Italy, sits on the Bay of Naples. Nearby is Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano that destroyed nearby Roman town Pompeii. Dating to the 2nd millennium B.C., Naples has centuries of important art and architecture. The city’s cathedral, the Duomo di San Gennaro, is filled with frescoes. Other major landmarks include the lavish Royal Palace and Castel Nuovo, a 13th-century castle. Naples is Italys third city after Rome and Milan has traditionally been the mere launchpad to the nearby Amalfi Coast, or the archaeological wonderland of Pompeii. Naples has its own airport and Naples airport transfers offer convenient transport from the airport into the city or beyond. 

Until now, Naples hasn’t managed to entice city breakers to wander its narrow spines, peer into its historical churches or even stay long enough to wolf down a slice of its legendary pizza.  The Neapolitan miracle is that even a cheap slice of margarita pizza from a touristy pavement restaurant in the old town, all thin slivers of dough with hot tomato sauce and wedges of buffalo mozzarella, tastes better than most pretender pizzas you’ll find elsewhere. For the very best pizza, there’s Pizzaria la Notizia on Via Michelangelo da Caravaggio, which staunchly hangs onto its reputation as the world’s best pizza; or “in the know” joint Trianon. 

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 TerreIt 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 or 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.
