Food, glorious food. And that’s not a patch on the spectacular sights and scenery of this vast varied country. Italy is a treasure trove of art and culture, jam-packed into exuberant cities’ museums and galleries, homes and hotels, streets and alleyways. Italians love to live well, evident in its rich cuisine, wine and music and art. Tuscany itself features more classified historical monuments than any world country. From the Alps to the Dolomites, mountains span the region, interjected with isolated beaches. This spring, head to Southern Italy’s secret, Matera, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. The spellbinding haphazard mesh of honey-bathed stone settlements house ‘Caveoso’ - prehistoric peasant cave houses. Flanked by age-old marvels, it’s a magical UNESCO World Heritage Site.Recommended for:

My love affair with Italy is long and complicated, full of ups and downs, reunions and separations. The long and short of it is, it's a fascinatingly screwed up place where the sun is hot and you can eat and drink some of the best things in the world.Recommended for:

Italy is a beautiful country with a healthy appetite from everything that is beautiful from fine art to their melodious language and rich food. The history here is amazing, especially the many Roman ruins!Recommended for:

Italy is a fascinating country, in its religion, art, architecture, culture and food. My seventeen days trip to Italy is not enough for a first visit. Milan, Florence, Rome, Capri, Sorrento, Venice Verona, every city is wonderful. So I'll try for a second trip to Italy.

Had a marvelous time in Venice. There was a group of us that took a ride down the canals with the crooner. It was magical. My only regret is that the tour was short lived. If you are in to Italian cuisine, this is a must. The pasta was absolutely delicioso...

When a country co-started Western civilization, you know the history has got to be good. Too many people stay on the Rome-Florence-Venice corridor, but the best of Italy is in the smaller regions -- Umbria, Puglia, Liguria. Go off-season -- May and June or Sept and Oct -- for the better harvest and wildflowers and fewer crowds.

Since Italy is extremely Catholic, most of it is decorated during the holiday season and they obviously celebrate Christmas here! Rome, Florence or Tuscany (Siena) could be very nice!

Italy....definitely on my top 5 list of favorite countries! I've been all over Italy and loved every single city I've been to. My favorite was Cinque Terre and Venice. Cinque Terre is picturesque! On my first visit, I thought I walked into a magazine picture. As for Venice, I might be a tourist for saying this but riding on a gondola through the canals is an awesome feeling!
The food is amazing. I ate a ton of seafood...stuffed mussels being my favorite. The language barrier was tougher than I expected even in the tourist areas but nonetheless the people were fantastic!

My favorite non-tourist city was the tiny romantic city of Lucca. It has a natural charm that lets you day dream back to the times of royalty. . . the whole city is encompassed by a huge castle wall that you can actually now bicycle on! What an amazing small city with delicious restaurants, vibrant markets and pure people.
