Destination Guide

Italy Destination Guide - Majestic Cities and Spectacular Coastlines

The Mediterranean country of Italy is located in the southern part of central Europe, occupying the boot-shaped Apennine Peninsula. Italy’s geography varies from the snow-covered peaks of the Alps mountain range in the north to the sunny shores of the island of Sicily in the south. Including the two biggest islands on the Mediterranean, Sardinia and Sicily, Italy has over 7,500 km of coastline on the Adriatic, Ionian and Tyrrhenian sea. Due to its location in central Europe, Italy was home to many ancient tribes and empires throughout its rich history, none more famous and influential than the Romans. The Roman Empire conquered most of Europe and, at one point in the 2nd century, the Empire spanned from Scotland to India. At the peak of its power, during the 200 years of Pax Romana, Rome was the leading cultural, political and religious centre of Europe. Before the Empire collapsed in the 5th century, Roman ingenuity ensured groundbreaking development in law, technology, architecture, economy and art. Italy continued ununified through the ages, with several city-states and maritime republics, such as Venice, prospering through trade, commerce and banking. The Renaissance period, which originated in Italy, saw brilliant artists create some of the most famous pieces of art in human history. Today, the Italian capital of Rome serves as a time capsule, presenting the wonders of Italian history to millions of curious tourists.
