Italy is a fantastic country for tourism

With its friendly people, beautiful language, amazing history & great food. It’s a wonderful country to visit. You could live in Italy your whole life and still find something new and wonderful to see, just around the corner. You could visit Italy for a month and get to see a different UNESCO World Heritage site each day.














The nightlife in Italy can be different to other places in Europe. In some parts of Italy you will find the bars are full of families, enjoying each others company and good food, very civilized. In the major cities the nightlife tends to be much more vibrant. You tend to find students dancing in nightclubs to the latest music that’s on the scene.

Shopping in Italy can be so much fun. You will find fantastic markets, shopping centres and a wide selection of wonderful side street shops. You will find a wide selection of good quality leather products, such as coats, clothes and bags. You will find clothes in stores from some of Italy’s famous designers. The markets are also a fun place to shop, but only tend to run once a week. You can also bargain almost anywhere, well except for supermarkets.
