When most think of Italy, they think of deliciously cheesy pizzas, spaghetti bolognese and world class coffee. There’s no doubt that it is a part of the world with excellent taste in food and drink, though of course, there is so much more to be discovered. From the romantic canals a drift with gondolas in Venice, to the ancient ruins that exist un-spoilt in the middle of Rome, and the glossy fashion capital of Milan. This is a country with so much to offer, and wherever you go there will always be something new and exciting to be discovered. Whether interested in cultural heritage, good shops, the serenity of traditionally italian scenery or indeed, just a great cup of coffee – Italy has it all.
