Italy

italy

Italy has a coastline that is longer than Brazil's - 7600 kilometers! And all of this is with the Mediterranean Sea. The country has such an elongated shape that wherever you are on the peninsula, the sea is never far away - except for the very North of the country, which holds Italy's second major natural attraction: The Alps. Italy is Europe's country with the the biggest number of high mountain ranges. There is no denying it: Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

The physical attractiveness of the country comes with an immense cultural one, and this is related both to the past and the present. As everyone knows, Italy, through Rome, which now serves as the nation's capital, became one of the mothers of European - and therefor the world's - civilization.

Without Rome there may never have been any of the European culture the way it is now. In antiquity, Rome was the in-official capital of the world and an architectural wonder. Much of this splendour - like the Colosseum or the Pantheon and many other ancient monuments - are still there to be enjoyed. Later Rome became the centre of Christianity - a role it still has today. Italy is definitely one of the most important countries regarding historic significance in the world. If you want to understand Europe, you have to go to Rome, the Eternal City.

Italy's historic culture is big - but this has never ever stopped, it has gone on continually for more than 2000 years. The modern country still is one of the world's leading nations in every way - and a member of the exclusive G8 Club.

Italy's economy is a major one - but what most people around the world associate Italy with is the art of living well. Here you can mention fashion (Milan is the world's leading place for fashion design, even before Paris), food (there is so much Italy has given to the world in this respect: Spaghetti, Lasagna, Pizza...), wine (a Roman invention, of course), music (think Vivaldi, Verdi, et cetera), architecture (Venice is arguably the world's most daring city construction) cars (think Maserati, Ferrari, Alpha Romeo) - or all of this combined. Italy is one of the few places in the world where a rich national culture and a landscape so beautiful that it almost hurts the eye have created a unique atmosphere that will blow you away.

Italy is known for its hospitality. It invites the world to visit - or to stay. And the world gladly accepts this call. This has led to one of the most thriving tourist sectors in the world - and the Italian real estate market is also of great class. It is so elaborate that there is nothing that you can't find in Italy, no matter what you are looking for.
