Italy is Europe’s sexy, thigh-high Mediterranean boot. Full of passion, bursting with creativity and art, and dripping with so much raw beauty your heart will ache with fullness. That’s Italy. That’s amore! A stroll through Florence, Rome, Venice, or Milan is a walk through the pages of art history. Head-turning artworks by the world’s masters are visible in Italy’s abundant museums, beautiful piazzas and promenades: Titian, Rodin, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci … Italy is the mother of masters.

When fashion is the passion, Italy is the place to shop. The designer brands of the world’s biggest names are found here along with emerging designers for everything from clothing and jewelry to leather-goods and furnishings. Not to be outdone by Italian designers (or the Roman Empire), nature adorned Italy’s landscape beautifully. From the snow-covered Alps to the lush vineyards to the seashores of Sicily … nature will delight.
With a year-around temperate climate, every season is as hospitable as an Italian nonna. Speaking of Italian grandmas, Italy earns the world’s affection, plate-by-plate. Italy is synonymous with food, with a distinctive taste signature from each region. Whether you dine in a family-run cafe or a Michelin-starred restaurant, Italy’s cuisine will not disappoint. Event Planners have a wide choice in cities and settings for group events:
Rome, the 2,700 year old Eternal City; the Renaissance city of Florence; “Queen of the Sea” Venice; modern, edgy Milan; and a list of equally stunning less-urban settings in Tuscany, Lake Como, Verona, Naples, Sorrento, Capri, Sicily, and Sardinia. High-quality hotels are widely available across Italy. Incredible venues are available to book for private experiences, too: venerable old mansions in Venice, rooms at the Vatican, galleries in Florence … the choices are only as limited as the imagination.
