Not many travellers need too much convincing that it’s a good idea to enjoy a holiday in Italy at least once in their life. This is the place that plies you with pasta, pizza and myriad other delights, washes it down with wine as smooth as velvet, all in front of a Tuscan backdrop that will have you gasping for breath from its unadulterated beauty. Ladies and gentlemen, Italy, quite simply, knows how to get the job done.
