Italy, Europe

Italy, Europe


Yes, it has scenery to make you weak at the knees, a fierce obsession with food, and an unrivalled richness of cultural heritage – but Italy’s true seductive powers are in the detail of day-to-day life.

We can show you photos of the Tuscan countryside, dotted with crumbling hilltop towns, but it’s the smell of the evening air, perfumed with jasmine, or the chiming of church bells across sun-baked piazzas in the morning that make it unforgettable. Or take the capital, Rome, where ancient sites that in other countries may be ring-fenced from the public, act as stages for the drama of everyday life – first kisses on the Spanish Steps, first steps taken in the Vatican Gardens.
