Italy is another bastion of European culture and the arts, rivaling France in depth and Greece in antiquity. Given that it’s the birthplace of the Holy Roman Empire, it’s a natural haven for pilgrims, especially with the Vatican and the various religious sites scattered all throughout. There are a lot of offerings for every interest. When you’re done with the sights and museums of major cities like Florence and Rome, you can sit back and relax in the rustic countryside of Tuscany and Umbria. The wine offering is one of the best in Italy.
