Italian highlights

#1 Tuscany

Florence is known as the cradle of the Renaissance and the historic old town with the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi and the Palace, the Medici has been a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1982.

Numerous church domes contribute to the characteristic silhouette of the city. A stroll through the medieval bridge Ponte Vecchio, which has spanned the River Arno since 1345, is a must for a stay in the artistic and cultural metropolis.

Tuscany has everything to attracts art lovers, people interested in history and those who simply enjoy life. Where else in the world can you find so much of all that to spice up your life? Wonderful wines, fine cuisine, art, wherever you look, splendid historical buildings everywhere, and all in the most beautiful possible setting; the Tuscan countryside.

#2 Lombardy

Milan is one of the most famous shopping areas in Europe and is the fashion and design capital of Italy.

In the Quadrilatero della Moda, the so-called "square of fashion", the shops of famous fashion designers such as Prada, Gucci, Armani and Valentino are all there just waiting for you.

Lombardy is probably best known by the city of Milan, but there are also other interesting experiences in this region, both cultural and for nature-lovers. A stay in Lombardy is often a good starting point for those who want to experience some of the great cities of Northern Italy and perhaps the less known cities.

# 3 Campania

Like hardly any other city in Italy, Sorrento embodies Northern European desires for summer, sun, beach and Mediterranean lightness. Nestled in lemon and orange groves, Sorrento is located on the peninsula of the same name on the Gulf of Naples. Five kilometers off the coast lies the beautiful island of Capri in the Mediterranean, whose spectacular sunsets have been singled out several times.

Campania is at the same time an expression of beauty, drama, history, culture, sun and sea. The beautiful Amalfi Coast is like with a series of pearls on a string in the form of cities like Ravello, Amalfi and Positano, which lie side by side, will be described by many as one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe. One should not miss the Sorrento Peninsula and the view over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, which looks over the landscape and despite its massive forces, does not discourage people from staying here and taking advantage of its fertile slopes.

Of all places frequented by H. C. Andersen (1805 - 1875) during his studies in the early 1840s, Naples and its surroundings were the area he loved the most. The same fascination can be found in the work "Italian Journey" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1832 - 1749), where in 1786 Naples is described as a true paradise. Today, many would probably no longer describe the city with its chaotic, loud and extremely lively inner city.
