Rich in hidden gems, culinary delights, and a staggering number of unique landmarks, Northern Italy is the place for many wonderful discoveries. From the imposing mountains and serene lakes to some of the most famous cities that anyone wants to see and picturesque little villages, you are in for a pleasant surprise.

With relatively short travel distances and well-organised public transport, travelling in Northern Italy is easy and environmentally friendly. You can forget about a car and jump on and off trains and boats. And what about the many trekking routes of different levels? Easy walkers or experienced trekkers will find the perfect solution to their needs.

Northern Italy is a must-see place if you have a particular interest in history and art. You surely know about major works of art like Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper in Milan but the surprising thing about Northern Italy is that you will find many more masterpieces that are not necessarily in a major landmark or museum. While wandering in Northern Italian towns make sure to enter the churches and palaces and you will realize how culture, art and the sense of beauty is something deeply present in daily life.

No need to remind you that you are visiting the land of the capital of fashion, of Ferrari cars and with a rich musical heritage. If you either fancy a night at La Scala or the Verona Arena or simply wish to visit a violin maker’s workshop, the opportunities for travellers with an artistic soul are endless.

Central Italy offers many of the most famous and some best hidden gems of the Belpaese. Tuscany is well known to international visitor but there remain pockets of undiscovered beauty. Scenic Umbria is rich in ancient history and architecture, sparkling lakes and hill towns. Le Marche is home to diverse landscapes, a stunning coastline and charming towns, much less famous than Tuscany but equally impressive.

Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, it rises between mountains and boundless valleys. It is home to the Unesco heritage villages of Assisi and Spoleto, two medieval towns full of history and traditions. Umbria is the perfect destination if you love to travel in contact with lush nature but also if you rejoice in visiting artisans’ workshops and discovering hidden art jewels.

Le Marche is not a single region but many regions rich in art, culture, nature and good food. Nature has been particularly good with Le Marche as it granted amazing places ranging from the white coasts of the Conero Riviera to the boundless natural park of the Monti Sibillini passing through the San Bartolo Natural Park. The food and culinary traditions vary from place to place, always accompanied by a glass of Vermentino to name one of the many wines. Le Marche is a region of stunning beauty, home of Leopardi, Raphael and Rossini.

A tale about Central Italy is not complete without mentioning Tuscany and Lazio. I will not tell you about Florence and Rome, Siena or Lucca; I’d rather invite you to visit Civita di Bagnoregio known as “the dying town”, Pitigliano, the coast of Maremma and Monte Argentario, the Elba Island and Lake Bolsena. The choice will be difficult but then why do you have to choose when you can see it all?

The South of Italy is a jewel to be discovered and experienced through nature, history and tradition. Nature seems to have destined all its wonders to Southern Italy: mountains, hills and, especially, the sea, with its incredible colours, the transparency of the water and the beauty of its seabed. Rolling hills, vast expanses of flat land, breathtaking views over an enchanting sea: from a naturalistic point of view, Southern Italy does not lack of anything!

The Mediterranean offers unique and intense scenery, smells and flavours that only uncontaminated nature is capable of offering. The exuberance and warmth also spice up the cuisine that expresses the passion and attention to good food and authentic flavours. The typical cuisine of Southern Italy offers an infinite number of options: each area has its own traditional recipe and you will not be able to decide, at the end of the trip, which dish you were most satisfied with.

The archaeological excavations of Herculaneum and Pompeii, the history of Matera and the enchanted landscapes of Apulia, the majolica of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, the crystal-clear waters of the heel and toe of the boot, the baroque art of Sicily and its islands as far as the eye can see, the wild and unspoilt nature of Sardinia: these are just some of the beauties you will encounter along the way.

Rural landscapes offer truly unique glimpses: perfect spots to stop for long moments to meditate and investigate the most hidden corners of your soul, in the shade of a hundred-year-old olive tree in Apulia or in a fragrant citrus grove in Campania. Let the beauty that surrounds you inspire your thoughts and look at the world from an unspoilt and privileged place.
