Sit on the open terrace overlooking the sea and let the blue Mediterranean calm your eyes and reward you for taking the time to slow down.Osteria Francescana The Modena restaurant of superstar chef Massimo Bottura promises gourmet fireworks. For climbing and tackling the vie ferrate, the Dolomites have some magnificent sheer rock faces, which are at their best in June and September.

Then reach out to Antonella Urbano, the horseback riding teacher who taught me how to ride when I was a kid. Punta Bonfiglio, a short uphill hike, has fabulous views and a playground with a bar (or a bar with a playground, depending on your priorities). Our guide to Italy's highlights, featuring the best sights and recommended itineraries for a curated selection of top destinations, this visually inspiring guide will help you to make the most of your time in Italy.Stretch your legs outside the city by picking a hike that works for you, from a few hours to a full day, from easy to hard. Discover Rome's ancient architecture, explore the waterways of Venice, and tour blockbuster museums in Tuscany; all with your trusted travel companion. Take the day to drive along the coastal road that connects Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca in Salento.

The Perfect Choice: Lonely Planet’s Italy , our most comprehensive guide to Italy, is perfect for both exploring top sights and taking roads less travelled.Throughout history, the country’s scene-stealing classical monuments have provided a benchmark for architectural ambition and engineering innovation. To follow in their footsteps, spring and autumn are the best seasons for sightseeing, touring and enjoying seasonal food. To the south, you’ll find exhilarating walking in Abruzzo’s Apennines and the Monti Sibillini in Umbria and Le Marche. At Castello Frisari in Scorrano and Castel di Salve in Depressa, young winemakers are eager to let you try the traditional Primitivo and Negramaro wines. More than 2000 years on and their legacy is woven into the fabric of the nation: roads run past ancient aqueducts, metro stations incorporate underground ruins, opera rings out in gladiatorial arenas.

Between 6:30am and 10pm, one to three trains an hour trundle along the coast between Genoa and La Spezia, stopping at each of Cinque Terre's villages. Regional specialities abound, but wherever you go in this food-mad country you’ll eat well – whether in a family-run trattoria, a boisterous backstreet pizzeria or a chic harbourside restaurant.Ever since pilgrims started traipsing to Rome and classical-minded aristocrats embarked on the Grand Tour, travellers have been flocking to Italy. Even if you plan to stay for a weekend, renting a car will allow you to visit different places on the same day without relying on the often unreliable public transportation system. In Emilia-Romagna they love their egg pastas like tagliatelle (ribbon pasta) and tortellini (pockets of meat-stuffed pasta), while Umbrians have their strangozzi (a kind of rectangular spaghetti) and Puglians can’t get enough of their orecchiette (‘little ears’ pasta). Discover erotic frescoes and kilometres of haunting Hobbit-like tombs in the Etruscan cemeteries of Cerveteri and Tarquinia 4 in northern Lazio. We’ve been using lonely planet for over a decade to plan all of our trips, the amount of info contained is fenomenal and likely to be spot on (by an amazingly large margin).
