About Italy

The boot. For some, this boot might be perceived as the best dressed part of Europe. But beyond fashion, the decant gelato and rich cafés are as overwhelming as the amount of history rooted in this geography. The effortless landscapes that cover the entire country are reason enough to visit, and easily hold their own for anyone not intrigued by the rebellious nature of Michelangelo, the canals of Venice, or the overwhelming presence of the Colosseum. From the secluded serene lakes of the north, to the teetering cobblestone roads of the Amalfi coast, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Italy.

When to Go: High season is July-August and major attractions are extremely crowded. Spring and fall are shoulder season with good deals on accommodation. November-March is low season with significantly cheaper prices except in the northern ski resorts.
