Florence: The Renaissance City
Firenze, famously dubbed the “city of stone” by writer Mary McCarthy, regards itself as a living museum. And considering that it has counted among its residents the likes of Michelangelo, Raphael, Dante, Donatello, Brunelleschi and the entire Medici clan, it certainly has the cultural cachet—and monumental works of art—to substantiate that claim in Italy, and beyond.
The dramatic Amalfi Coast is a place where land, sea and sky strike a note of otherworldly perfection. Here, a sense of la dolce vita is manifest and days include island-hopping by private boat, lunching at beach clubs, shopping in hilltop towns and touring historic sites. In short, it’s seaside Italy at its best. Interested in traveling to Italy? Head here to learn about visiting Italy during covid. #HowYouTravelMatters

What's it like in Italy now? "You will have Italy to yourself—this will not last long...I have been in Positano for one week so far. It’s just bliss, a smaller number of tourists and locals at our complete disposal, better than the past years.
