About Italy

The Republic of Italy is located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea in Southern Europe. Italy comprises some of the most varied and scenic landscapes on earth and is often described as a country shaped like a boot. To the North, the Alps separate Italy from France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. Elsewhere, Italy is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea as well as the enclaved micro states of Vatican and San Marino. The capital is Rome, one of the oldest and world's greatest cities and a favourite for visitors who go there to see its great monuments and works of art. Other major cities in Italy include Milan, the sprawling southern metropolis of Naples, Genea: a handsome part on the Ligurian Gulf and Venice: one of the world's oldest tourist destinations. The intellectual and moral faculties of humankind have found a welcome home in Italy, one of the world's most important centres of religion, literature, visual arts, music, philosophy, culinary arts and sciences.

Italy has a current population of more than 60 million people where the population is unevenly distributed. The most densely populated areas the Po valley, metropolitan areas of Rome and Naples that account for more than half of the population while vast regions like the Alps and the Apenniens highlands, Sicily are sparsely populated. Romanian citizens are the largest migrant population with Italian as the official language. The biggest proportion of Italians identify as Roman Catholic although Catholicism is no longer officially the state religion. The Italian cuisine is noted for its regional diversity, abundance of difference in taste, and is known to be one of the most popular in the world. Cheese, cold cuts, and wine are central to Italian cuisine along with pizza, pasta and coffee especially espresso form part of the Italian gastronomic culture.

Choosing the best time to travel to Italy will depend heavily on what you’re hoping to see and do in Italy, your budget, and when you’re able to travel. Italy’s busiest season is the high summer, from May to August. August is a holiday month in Italy when locals and tourists flock to the beaches to make the most of the very hot weather. If you’re looking to pick up an epic bargain, then the winter months between November to March are highly recommended. Most flights and accommodation options will be slightly cheaper at this time, except, of course, the ski resorts in the north that amp up their pricing. The in-between seasons of spring between Match and May and autumn between September and October bring slightly unpredictable weather but fewer crowds and sometimes good deals on accommodation.
