Italy: the most caloric vacation

If you look at the map of the world, you can recognize Italy by its shape – the borders of the country resemble a «boot». However, this is the boot full of antique attractions, breathtaking beaches, compact hotels and restaurants with the best chefs.

And Italian cuisine is something legendary! Each and every guidebook in Italy flashes with recommendations on popular cafes and restaurants. Still, experienced travelers advise to get acquainted with the local cuisine by yourself: they believe that in Italy every guest should find his or her favourite cozy restaurant, hidden from other people's eyes.

The best periods for sightseeing tours across Italy are from April to May and from October to November. Regarding transport, bus tours across different cities of the country are the most demanded. There is not a person who has never heard of Roman antique monuments, the romantic atmosphere of Verona, tempting Milan shops and Venetian gondolas. The legendary Colosseum, used as an arena for gladiatorial fights, the residence of the Roman Catholic Pope – the Vatican, St. Mark's Square, famous for its cathedral and countless pigeons – tens of thousands of tourists come to see these places every day.

The high beach season here is from June to September. Popular places for sunny coasts lovers in Italy include Rimini, Calabria and Sardinia.
