Not to mention the extraordinary landscapes, sunny summer weather and ski-friendly snow in winter. And of course, the superb food and wine. So when one of our clients, City Wonders, asked us to write a series of posts about Italy for their blog, we jumped at the chance.

With locations ranging from historic Venice in the north of the country to the spectacular southerly Amalfi Coast, with a whole host of memorable and iconic stops in between, we found ourselves tackling topics ranging from films to food to family travel.
