The Dolomites, Lake Geneva and the duomo of Milan are just a few of the treasures of northern Italy, while Rome, Capri and Pompei are some of the iconic names of southern Italy. And let's not forget Venice and its Grand Canal, Florence or Pisa, all emblematic of Tuscany whose light is so beautiful at sunset. Your journey may also take you to Sicily and Sardinia, where you will marvel at the testimonials of an illustrious past, whether it be before a Renaissance masterpiece or a vivid antique mosaic. However, in the end, what may strike you most is Italy's proud, vibrant and inherently joyful character, whether it be on one of the café terraces so beloved of its stylish citizens or at a boistrous football match starring the famous Squadra azzurra!
