‘Italy The Belpaese (Beautiful Country) is one of the single greatest repositories of sensorial pleasures on earth. From art to food, from stunning and varied countryside to flamboyant fashion, Italy has it all,’ as described by the Lonely Planet guide to Italy. Indeed, it is hard to argue that Italy as a place to live or travel destination is anything other than cultural and picturesque.
With some sixty point two million inhabitants, the country is the sixth most populous country in Europe and the twenty-third most populous in the world. This is a cumulative result of immigration from across Europe and particularly from America adding to the indigenous Italian population. At the beginning of 2009, 6.5% of Italy’s total population was composed of immigrants.
It is little wonder why so many people wish to live in Italy. The country has forty four Unesco World Heritage Sites, more than any other country on earth and historic cities like Rome, Venice and Florence, know as cities of art. Fashion lovers are drawn to Milan, which is also the country’s financial centre, while others are drawn to Sicily’s volcanoes. Skiing is very popular in the Alps and hiking the Dolomites is a pastime of locals and tourists alike. Many Roman Catholics flock to the country to visit the Vatican and the Pope and Italy is widely recognised as the centre of Catholicism. It is for these reasons that Italy is the fourth highest profiting country from tourism in the world, with forty three point seven million tourists visiting every year.
A common tourist belief is that Italy is always sunny and mild. Whilst Italy is famed for it hot summers and mild winters, it is worth remembering that the country’s climate is highly variable. This is particularly the case when considering the Peninsula which is a highly mountainous area.
