It is home to some of the finest artistic relics which can be enjoyed in the many galleries and museums, world famous cuisine, latest fashion trends and architecture to droll over.
The famous lo Stivale
Because of Italy’s unique shape, it is often referred to as lo Stivale, which in translation means “The Boot”, and that’s easy to understand as it literally looks like a boot from a top-down view. In the ancient days a small Italic tribe called the Latins established the Roman Kingdom which became the center of western civilization. Today Italy is one of the top countries to visit in Europe. The capital of the country is Rome which is famous for its ancient relics from the times of Rome. When visiting a capital city, you surely need to find your way to holy city – the Vatican itself.
The heart of Italy
Italy has been one of the first tourist destinations in Europe and was the birthplace of the ever-so-famous renaissance area. It was the flourishing Italian culture of the 15th century that drew in many artists and scholars which greatly contributed to how Italy looks and feels today. This led Italy to produce some of the great and famous inventors and artists like Leonardo Da Vinci and Michalengelo.
The rich, vibrant history of Italy resulted in some of the most amazing architecture present in the world in almost every place you visit. But Italy has to be explored slowly, perhaps one region at a time. Why? Because the country is so diverse and it has natural feel to it, that you can’t grasp it all in just one visit.

Featuring 24 Natural Parks, it is a perfect place to explore the local culture, food, and ancient relics you will find along the path such as old castles, churches, towers and much more.
