Overview

Wonders of Italy combines the natural splendors of the "Bel Paese" - beautiful country - with manmade treasures of art, architecture, and design in an all-encompassing tour of Italy's boot-shaped peninsula and associated islands. The book explores the incredible variety of Italian landscapes, from Tuscany and the Po valley to the wild beauty of the south with its volcanoes; from the majesty and might f the highest mountains in Europe to the vitality and beauty of islands and coastlines. We will visit the tiny coastal villages of Liguria, the hilltop hamlets of Umbria, the fashion and culture capitals of Milan and Rome, and the ancient routes trodden by the Romans, the barbarians, medieval pilgrims, and Renaissance armies. A country of bell towers and coastlines, art and culture, Italy is a marvelous mix of human and natural riches.
