The European country of Italy has carved a niche for itself in western cuisine and culture. It is the birthplace of the Renaissance and the Roman Empire. So, it is no wonder that the country is rich with invaluable art and architectural works. To an awe-struck first-timer, it would appear that even the Gods are shining down on this country.

 Italy is blessed with shimmering lakes, scenic mountains, and a coastline that can make anyone go weak in the knees. Brimming with ancient ruins and landmark art, the Vatican City attracts tourists as well as the devout. And how can one forget the fashion capital of the country, Milan? In Florence, you will be able to feel the presence of spell-binding masterpieces like Da Vinci's The Last Supper, Michelangelo's David, and Botticelli's Birth of Venus.

Not had enough? Then see if you can resist the allure of a gondola ride through the canals in Venice or savor the all-year temperate clime and sylvan beauty of the Alps through camellias and palm trees at Lake Como? Basking in the magnificence and glory of having more UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites than any other country in the world, this is truly a Connoisseur's reality come to life!!
