The renowned English author Samuel Johnson once said that “The man who has not been to Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from not having seen what is expected a man should see.” From the unbelievable opulence of the Vatican to the simplicity of the family run restaurant Trattoria serving humble fare, Italy’s timelessness and millennia of rich history can be felt on the very ground you walk on. Every region in Italy boasts of a distinct characteristic, which is easily identifiable. And yet, there are only a few countries in the world where you can sunbathe on a pebble beach at the Mediterranean, then drive 2 hours to ski in the magnificent Alps, or walk along scenic wine orchards and drive an hour to visit art history museums. For lovers of history, the ancient history monuments like the Colosseum, Pantheon, Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Catacombs are intriguing to explore. For art lovers, masterpieces of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci can be seen in Florence and Rome. And for those who wish to be close to nature there are pristine beaches, scenic Alps, sprawling vineyards, azure grottos, and much more.
