  • Amalfi-x225
    The Amalfi Coast is one of the most spectacular areas of Italy. We have always found the town of Amalfi to be the best to use as your base. See our Great Places to Stay.
  • Giardininaxos-x225
    Don't miss Sicily. Giardini Naxos is along the coast, just below Taormina. Nothing in the town of Giardini Naxos, except the Athena Rocks Hotel just on the outskirts.
  • Lamorra-x225
    The Langhe is the best wine area in Italy and well worth a visit. We found the little town of La Morra to be a great base. See Great Places to Stay - Piedmont Region.
  • Laquila-x225
    L'Aquila, and interesting town steeped in history.
  • Orta-x225
    The Lakes in the northern part of Italy are beautiful. We found staying at Lake Orta especially peaceful.
  • Orvieto-x225
    Orvieto is one of the most pleasant towns to stay in Umbria. Here, the roads just seem to criss cross across the bountary of Tuscany and Umbria.
  • Parma-x225
    Much to see in the Emilia-Romagna Region. Parma is just one of the surprises along the way.
  • Polignano-x225
    Pulia, also known as Apulia, is a very interesting region, and well off the track of most North American Tourists. The town of Polgnano a Mare sits on cliffs over hanging the sea.
  • Rome-x225
    Rome is one of our most visisted cities. You just can't get enough of this place.
  • Sanmarghareta-x225
    Santa Margherta in the Liqure Region is great to see sights such as Portofino or the Cinque Terra.
  • Tropea-x225
    Don't overlook Calabria. The town of Tropea is a real treat.
  • Venezia-x225
    The Vento has much to see. Venezia is magical.
