…Numerous world heritage cultural sites, amazing culinary scene, wealth of wine regions, spectacular natural beauty…
Italy home to the largest number of UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites in the world. This alone would be reason enough to visit, but it also has an amazing culinary scene, a plethora of wine regions, and a diversity of natural beauty (7600km of spectacular coastline, crystal clear lakes, lush green mountains).
We’ve been fortunate to have visited twice so far. Our first visit explored both the big cities of Rome and Florence with their multitude of famous cultural sights and the countryside of Tuscany with its amazing wineries and quaint medieval hilltop villages. Our second visit took us further north to the high fashion city of Milan and to several of the surrounding lake districts and wineries. We’ll definitely be back to check out another area of the country and some more wineries!
