Venice, the "City of Bridges", as it is usually called, stretches along the mouths of the Po and the Piave rivers. Also known as a famous place for sweethearts, lovers, artists and poets, Venice is a magical city, which stretches across numerous small islands.

It is often refered to as the city of "gondole", which are the means of transportation used to cross the numerous canals passing through the city. In Venice there are many historical buildings, both with modern interiors and also with the traditional designs which are common all over the city.

Gondolas definitely are the symbol of Venice, which has made it famous all over the world.

Milan is the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. It’s the main industrial, commercial, and financial centre of Italy and a leading global city. Its business district hosts the Borsa Italiana (Italy's main stock exchange).

The urban look of the city may not exactly make heads turn as it does with other Italian cities that have long Roman history emotionally involved with them. Nevertheless, the fashion expositions, nightlife, Italian food and the metropolitan area of Milan provide the futuristic outlook of Italy, which attracts many youngsters.

Milanese people are one of most hard working people on the earth and the believers of the saying “Work Hard & Party Harder”.

Bologna is famed for having the oldest university in the Western world, a lively student population, exquisite food, typical brick terracotta-roofed architecture and porticos, theatre and nightlife.

It is also viewed as a progressive and well administered city. It is considered second only to Venice in beauty by many Italians and certainly has one of the largest and best preserved historic centres among Italian cities.

The extensive town centre, characterised by miles of attractive covered walkways, known as "porticos," is one of the best-preserved in Europe. Bologna is the seat of the oldest university in continental Europe, founded in 1088. A significant portion of its population consists of away-from-home university students.

Perugia is a lovely medieval city located in Umbria. Rich in history and art, its surrounding are witness to both the Etruscan and the Roman civilizations. The modern part of town is identified by the presence of its prestigious university, home to thousands of Italian and International students.

Perugia has all the lively characteristics of a typical university hub, and it is full of interesting attractions, restaurants and night spots. Because of its location, it is also perfect as a starting point for daily excursions to places such as Assisi, Spello and Gubbio. 

Perugia is not only international because of its university, as every year it hosts the Umbria Jazz festival, one of the most important jazz events in the entire world.

Florence is a city rich in places to discover but its dimensions are actually quite small. One or two days are enough to explore a large part of the city's marvels.

From its magnificent position, the city sits at the feet of the Appennine Mountains in a valley that opens onto the Arno Plain. Its buildings and monuments tell stories of art, war and life. Its streets, today crowded with tourists, are the same ones through which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante and many other of the most illustrious minds of all time, threaded their way.

Florence is an open air museum grown more beautiful over the centuries; a treasure chest enclosed by ancient walls that safeguard grandiose masterworks of art and architecture so close that you can almost touch them.

Abruzzo is located in central Italy and stretches from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, on a mostly mountainous and wild terrain.  In the mountains, tourist resorts and well-equipped facilities for skiing and winter sports rise among unpolluted peaks and rocky walls: among them are Pescasseroli, Rivisondoli and Roccaraso. 

Natural reserves, like the National Park of Abruzzo, the Park of Gran Sasso and the Laga Mountains, or that of Mount Majella, protect the typical vegetable and animal species of the area, including the golden eagle, the wolf and the Marsican brown bear. 

Also, the small villages of the hinterland, as well as the monasteries and castles of the region, are very charming and  part of many touristic routes in this the "greenest region" in Italy.
