Italy Travel Guide
Italy is located in Southern Europe. It is acknowledged as the birthplace of Western culture. Not surprisingly, it is also home to the greatest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. High art and monuments are to be found everywhere around the country. It is also famous worldwide for its cuisine, its trendy fashions, luxury sports cars and motorcycles, as well as for its many beautiful coasts, alpine lakes and mountains. Italy is bordering with France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia in the north and is surrounded by the Ligurian Sea, the Sardinian Sea, and the Tyrrhenian Sea in the west, the Sicilian and Ionian Sea in the South, and Adriatic Sea in the East.
Two independent mini-states are surrounded entirely by Italy: San Marino and Vatican City. While technically not part of the European Union, both of these states are also part of the Schengen Region and the European Monetary Union. Italian is the official language, but as you travel throughout the country, you will find there are several distinct Italian dialects corresponding to the region you are in. Italy has a very diverse landscape, but can be primarily described as mountainous including the Alps and the Apennines mountain ranges that run through the vast majority of it. Also Italy has two major islands as part of its country: Sardinia, which is an island off the west coast of Italy, and Sicily, which is at the south.
Italy is a country full of interesting things for the tourists. A place of olive oil, pasta, wine plenty of sunshine, roman ruins and renaissance palaces, Italy has certainly a special treat for every visitor.
