Italy… A country of world attractions, fashion industry, great leisure and colorful cuisine. The territory of the country is located on the Apennine Peninsula, it also owns the islands of Sardinia and Sicily. Italy is washed by four seas, rich in mountain ranges and sandy beaches. It is difficult to resist the temptation and at least once not visit the country of natural and cultural abundance. By the way, it would be nice to buy a Russian-Italian phrasebook before the trip. Unfortunately, the locals hardly understand English. Once the suitcases are packed, we are going on an unforgettable journey.

The regions of Italy are unique and varied. Each of them (and there are about 20 of them!) is divided into provinces, which, in turn, are divided into municipalities.

Visiting different regions, travelers are convinced of the uniqueness of the local culture, customs, cuisine, architecture, natural landscape. It seems that I managed to visit as many as 20 countries - Italy is so multifaceted. Planning a trip to only one region means depriving yourself of the exclusive pleasure of getting “more forthe same money.”

It is impossible to describe all the regions of Italy in a short review. However, to note the most significant, picturesque and popular means to direct a slightly bewildered traveler towards the first exciting acquaintance with the country. It is worth remembering that the wine regions of Italy coincide with the administrative regions. And you can talk about Italian wines with a slight aspiration - aged, full-bodied, spicy, tart. Each region is famous for its varieties and cooking methods. But more on that below.

Of the culinary delights, you should definitely try "bistecca fiorentina", and the local sommelier will offer wine made from Sangiovese grapes. Tuscan wines deservedly define the prestige of Italian winemaking.

Remembering the regions of Italy, it is almost impossible to determine the best. Piedmont… An area located among the Alpine mountains. The region is famous for its ski resorts, amazing natural scenery, wonderful wines from Nebbiolo and Barberra grapes, and an abundance of cheeses.
