Bella Italia – pasta, pizza, good wine and La Dolce Vita. Italy is known in the world for great cuisine. And rightly so! From a culinary point of view, Italy is definitely one of the top countries in Europe.
Italy is shaped like a boot that juts out into the Mediterranean Sea. The landscapes of Italy are very varied. In the north you can find the high mountains of the Alps, in the south volcanoes such as Etna or Vesuvius. Italy has over 7500 kilometers of coastline and is known for excellent beaches on, for example, Sardinia, Elba and the Adriatic coast.
But you can not only go on a beach holiday by the sea, but also, for example, on the numerous rivers and lakes. The most famous tourist destinations include Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore.
We mainly explored the north of Italy. For us, the Dolomites are among the most beautiful mountain groups in the Alps. The special rock formations can be seen again and again in magazines and on Instagram and we have fallen under the magic of the Dolomites, too. Our visit to Eggental with hikes in Catinaccio and Latemar will remain in our memory for a long time. We have visited the region in all seasons and the region has a lot to offer in both summer and winter. From hiking to mountain biking, skiing, and snowshoeing, the region is a dream, especially for active tourists. And then you can relax wonderfully in one of the many wellness hotels.
In addition to beautiful nature, the Italian cities are also charming and Mediterranean. We went on a small city trip in Tuscany and visited wonderful places like Florence, Lucca, and Pisa.
In late summer 2018 we visited Sardinia and the Mediterranean island is really a dream. Small hikes, crystal clear water, white beaches and pleasant temperatures made the vacation just perfect.
Italy will continue to be on our travel list. Rome, Sicily, Capri, Elba and, and, and … the possibilities are endless. Which regions can you particularly recommend? Where should we definitely stop by on our next tour?
