Rome, Naples, San Marino
Modern and old, past and present go side by side, all the time. Whether you are in Rome for 3 days, 3 weeks or 3 months, be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum. Rome will seduce you and it will hardly leave you indifferent. It will surprise you, since has so much to offer to any visitor, and it’s beauty is just been merely blurred by time passing by. Rome is one of world's most photogenic cities - not surprising when you remember what's here - The Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, St Peter's Square, Spanish Steps, Colosseum... Whether you spend your time sightseeing, or lazing in cafés watching the world go by, it will be your turn to feature in your very own Roman Holiday. If you can plan to stay as long as a week, you won't run out of things to do and you'll still feel like you're leaving too soon.
Most travellers hear the rumour Naples is a dirty, dangerous city not worth visiting. Nonsense. It is the heart of southern Italy, overflowing with energy and an abundant love of life. The local mafia gangs have earned the city its infamous reputation, but if you look beyond the fame, you’ll discover a city of breathtaking frescoes, sculptures and panoramas. Naples is rich in museums. The National Museum of Archaeology contains all the frescoes and jewellery excavated from Pompeii and outstanding sculpture and ceramics. The Galleria Nazionale features artists ranging from Massacio to Raphael. The historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s filled with royal palaces and castles. Stroll along the pedestrian seafront and enjoy delicious seafood dishes in one of its cosy restaurants. Neapolitans feel a cultural and communal identity that separated them from the rest of Italy; their passionate loyalties begin at home with the family, and, in many cases, end with the city. Ignore Naples’s honking horns and garbage-filled streets and enjoy a city of bewitching street life, of spontaneous conversations and profound humanity.
San Marino, officially the most Serene Republic of San Marino (in Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di San Marino), is a Constitutional Republic and the oldest sovereign State in the world. It is an enclave surrounded by Italian territory, between Emilia Romagna and brands. It contains Mount Titano, 739 metres, and is only 10 kilometres from the Adriatic Sea, although the country has no outlet to the sea. It is one of the European microstates. Since tourism represents more than 50 of the economy, the Government has abolished taxes and customs duties, except for the sale of coins and stamps. In addition the Italian Government gives to San Marino an annual budget after the basic treaty signed by both parties.
