Inland, hiking and skiing are popular, while divers will enjoy a trip to the Sardinian coast.

Italy is famous for many reasons:  Art, al fresco dining, excellent traditional food, culture, fashion and its beautiful beaches.

With a relaxed way of life, the locals will be pleased to invite you to enjoy a coffee with them on the squares and streetside cafes.
