Why visit Italy?


Italy is a country in Southern Europe, which along with Greece, is believe to be the birthplace of Western culture. It is a small boot-shaped country that has the best of many diverse things – art, monuments, heritage, food, fashion, sports cars, football, coasts… you name it, the Italians have it…

Italy is actually a peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides – the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas, the Mediterranean and Ionian Seas and the Adriatic Sea. As if that wasn’t beauty enough, the Alps and the Apennines mountain ranges run through the vast majority of it. Talk of diversity in landscape! Two major islands are a part of this country – Sardinia and Sicily.

With the proximity of the Vatican in the country, many assume that it is predominantly Catholic in religious belief – the reality is rather diverse. For centuries, this has been home to all possible Christian denominations and quite a sizeable Jewish community. Religion is never far from you wherever you are in Italy – but then neither is great food, lovely wines, fabulous natural beauty and history…


Italy, the birthplace of Renaissance, the epicentre of the Roman Empire, a place where many Shakespeare plays were set in. Italy has been a part of our lives in one form of the other, be it history, literature, or the very popular pizza and pasta. There is more to Italy than what we have always read, talked about or experienced. This country is one of Mother Nature’s masterpieces, and its geography offers extraordinary natural diversity. From the mountain peaks, glacial lakes, beaches, hilltop towns to the volcanic craters and grottoes, this is a place for doing as well as seeing. Come Beyonder, as we take you along the coastline, islands and volcanoes.
