Rome is the historic capital, home to piazzas and fabulous buildings such as the stunning Sistine Chapel and the Coliseum. Rome itself is best toured on foot or by public transport, but the surrounding area offers many interesting attractions easily reached by car. The nearby hills bring cool relief from the summer heat, and there are some fine but busy beaches near the capital. In the 18th century, English aristocrats liked to retreat to the nearby lovely little towns and countryside of Lazio.

Florence is an art lover's paradise, brimming with cultural and historical highlights. Not to be missed are Michelangelo's masterpieces at the Uffizi, where hundreds of other priceless artworks are on show. The Duomo gives the city its unique skyline, while other features such as the Arno River, crossed via the Ponte Vecchio, add to its ambience. The small town of Lucca is just a short drive away and is flanked by mountains on three sides and the sea on the other.

A drive through the winding country roads outside Venice will take you to the villas of Andrea Palladio, set among lush green hills where some of Italy's most popular wines are harvested. The towering Dolomite Mountains beckon in the distance. When you want to get away from the crowds, head for Sicily in the south. It's a great destination during the European winter.
