Italy Travel Guide: 71,051 reviews and 192,387 photos
Officially the Italian Republic, ITALY is located in south-central Europe and comprises the boot-shaped Italian Peninsula and a number of islands including the two largest, Sicily and Sardinia. It borders France, Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia to the north. To the south lies Sicily and Sardinia. The independent states of San Marino and the Vatican City are enclaves within Italy.
The capital of Italy, Rome was for centuries the political and religious center of western civilization, as the capital of the Roman Empire and site of the Holy See.
Our family visited Italy in 1986, as part of our European Tour. We stayed in Lido Di Jesolo which is very near Venice.
Also in 1968, when I was a student, I was in Venice, as it was a stop on the Mediterranean Cruise I was on. I have vivid memories of the Rialto Bridge and St. Marco's Square.
Also, next year, in May 2012, Bergamo Italy is the site of our main VT Euromeet, which I am so looking forward to.
