Accommodation in Italy

Impressive mountain worlds

In northern Italy, alpine ridges define the panorama: the Italian Alps occupy large parts of Piedmont, Lombardy and Trentinos and shape the landscape. Even from a distance, the Marmolada, the Three Peaks and the Brenta Group stand out clearly from their no less impressive surroundings. In the center of Italy, the Apennines traverse the peninsula and extend to Calabria, where they turn into gentler hills. The mountainous landscape is sometimes bordered by wide coastline, where the Mediterranean climate invites you to take a leisurely stroll.

Hiking in Italy

Due to its scenic diversity, Italy is ideal for hiking tours of all kinds. The Dolomites in the north of the boot reach airy heights of up to 3350 m. But also more southern regions like Basilicata, which is crossed by the Apennines, have many a promising tour in store.

Fascinating lake landscapes

Of course, Italy's picturesque lakes should not go unmentioned. Above all the world-famous Lake Garda, but also Lake Maggiore and Lake Como amaze its visitors each time anew. And where better to capture the Mediterranean flair than on a hike or bike tour along the promenade?

Landscape idyll

The Cinque Terre on the Ligurian coast is one of the classic holiday destinations. There, original beaches nestle against imposing slopes with lush vegetation. It is precisely this diversity between contrasting landscapes that gives Italy its special charm. An essential part of its scenic abundance are also the numerous volcanoes, which are not limited to the mainland. If you want to immerse yourself in the history of past centuries, you should not miss Etna, Stromboli, Vesuvius and Lipari.

Stopover Venice

The lagoon city of Venice is also a must for every culture-loving visitor. Whether on a boat tour across the Canal Grande with the classic gondola or a vaporetto, a sightseeing tour to the Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs or a leisurely stroll on Piazza San Marco: the multi-faceted state capital is not only worth a visit during the Biennale.

Capital of Culture Rome

Of course, there is no way around the capital Rome when you visit Italy. The "Eternal City" in the centre of the country is a triple UNESCO World Heritage Site and the seat of the small state of Vatican City. The pleasant Mediterranean climate is almost perfect for taking a stroll through the metropolis and visiting historical sites of the ancient Roman Empire such as the Forum Romanum, Colosseum or Pantheon. Culture enthusiasts can also make a short visit to St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums.
