Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.

Caves · Geologic Formations · Gardens
Capri, just 5 km (3 mi) from the mainland of Italy, has been a celebrated vacation spot and a coastal resort since the Roman Republic. Known in Greek mythology as an island favored by the sirens, Capri was a popular leisure destination for numerous Roman emperors. One of the more notorious emperors, Tiberius, built an extravagant villa on the island and allegedly flung visitors who displeased him from the high cliffs of his estate. Escape the swarms of visitors by sightseeing inland. The coastal areas may be known for attractions like beaches and caves carved out of cliffs, but deeper inland are other places to visit, including secluded natural trails and several abandoned forts.
