The rich culture, heritage and chequered history of Italy is reflected in its cities. Rome- the capital city is famed for its 3000 years old architecture, art, and historical heritage. The Colosseum - one of the seven wonders of the world and the Roman Forum are some prime attractions here. Venice sprawled over 100 islands is intertwined with its famous canals all around. Milan is a hub of international fashion and design. The famous Gothic Duomo di Milano cathedral and the Santa Maria Delle Grazie convent flaunt Leonardo da Vinci’s fresco. Florence is famed for its iconic architecture and masterpieces of art from Renaissance period. Florence Cathedral and The Galleria dell'Accademia and Uffizi Gallery are some of its remarkable sites to visit.
It is a sin to Italy to complain about the lack of attention of tourists - both in winter and, especially, in summer. Each season, millions of holiday-makers enthusiastically storm the famous “boot”, finding for this a lot of good reasons: a really smart and over-saturated excursion program, clear warm sea, good beaches and beautiful nature.
