Italian architecture is an art form all its own. Ruins from ancient Roman times provide a sense of wonder, as do the buildings from the Renaissance. Even Italy's modern architecture is inspiring. Of course, the cities themselves are hundreds of years old and are practically pieces of art themselves.

One of the more invigorating ways to tour Italy is on a bicycle. Many tours are available for this. Spring and Autumn are the best times of year for cycling. Summer is quite hot, and there are quite a few icy roads in the winter. You can combine your cycling tour through the country with a tour of fine wineries, a culinary experience, or an art tour.

The spas in Italy are known around the world for their luxury. Thermal waters were a typical part of town life in ancient Roman times, so the Italians have a long-held relationship with pampering. Spas are available in the countryside, at the beaches, and in the mountains.

Another enriching experience in Italy is visiting its beautiful national parks. The country boasts many protected natural spaces, which you can explore on your own or as part of a tour group. These include marine reserves in addition to the beautiful inland areas.
