Italy is a country very rich in things to see, flavors to taste and experiences to live. The medieval villages scattered among the green hills, the enchanting beaches, snow-capped mountains and fashion cities. However, all these treasures in a relatively small area: just think that Rome and Milan, the two most important cities, are separated by only 550 km.
