Consistently rated their favorite country in the world by Andrew Harper subscribers, Italy provides an incomparable range of attractions. As well as a culture of extraordinary depth and complexity, magnificent architecture and museums and galleries of astounding splendor, Italy offers daily instruction in the art of living well. For Italophiles, it is only necessary to whisper “seafood antipasti and spaghetti al limone” and they are instantly back on the Amalfi Coast, overlooking a bay where the blue of sea and sky merge at a hazy horizon. It is lunchtime: A pitcher of chilled local wine stands on a pink tablecloth, and the smells of rosemary and basil merge with those of grilling fish and calamari. At such moments, travel in Italy becomes one of the supreme pleasures of life.

WHEN TO VISIT

The ideal times for a visit are late spring (May-June) and fall (September- October). The principal cities are crowded with tourists in high summer. Rome’s inhabitants desert their city in August, and many restaurants are closed. 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Passport (valid for six months beyond end of stay and containing at least two unstamped pages). Visit travel.state.gov, and for travelers’ health information, cdc.gov.
