Book Overview


Let National Geographic take you to Italy, a land steeped in history, art, architecture, and culture.

Journey to the homeland of the Ancient Roman Empire, the tragic site of Pompeii, and the birthplace of the Renaissance. From the fabulous works of art that adorn the Vatican in Rome, to the churches of Florence, to the canals of Venice, experience a unique country alive with its own sense of style and drama. Along the way, you will discover the warmth of the Italian people and learn about their world renowned cuisine. Travel to the snowy Alpine peaks in the north; to Milan, one of the grand capitals of world fashion; to the southern city of Naples; and on to the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Fine photography and maps will leave you with an indelible impression of a land that has given the world the gift of beauty, elegance, and style.
