Welcome to the Mediterranean Powerhouse
Italy is located in the Mediterranean and has been a powerful historic influence since the days of Ancient Rome. With over 7,500 km (4,660 miles) of stunning beaches and dramatic coastline, it is easy to understand why the Roman’s rise to power was so prominent, influencing other countries cultures around the Mediterranean. History, of course, is one of the many reasons 64.5 million people visited the country in 2019.
Arriving in Italy
With 77 airports, Italy is a hub for international business. Most of the country’s 64 million visitors, some 38.5 million, arrived into Rome Airport Fiumicino. This is ideally located for easy access across the capital city and beyond. Private jets are welcome at this airport 24/7 making it the perfect location for that business meeting or romantic Italian escape that works best for you and your schedule.
Ancient History, Unique Culture and Religious Influence
No matter the city, you cannot help but be impressed by the stunning architecture and monuments found scattered around. The Capital City of Rome is over 2000 years older than the country itself. Italy used to be made up of provinces that were once ruled over by their own local royalty. That influence is still apparent today, and each region has its own unique culture and traditions.
Did You Know: The Republic of Italy was formed during the 1860s after the rulers of each region joined forces.
Millan is the fashion capital of the world, home to Prada, Gucci and Luis Vuitton, to name a few. Once you have shopped ’til you drop, check out the many culturally significant sites around the city and bask in da Vinci’s “Last Supper”.
Other cities of significance include Venice, Florence, Pisa and Naples, each of which offers a truly wonderful experience, from romantic getaways to historic, families and groups.
No tour of Italy would be complete without visiting the Amalfi coast. Picture this, white sandy beaches, the warm Mediterranean sun beating down on you as you are sailing across the crystal-clear water. You look into the distance, and you see colourful buildings jutting out of rugged cliffs, inviting you to explore and take a slower pace of life. Simply bliss.
