Pienza Tuscany Dream Farmhouse

You’re sitting in the evening sun, glass of Prosecco in hand, watching the daily passeggiata of people drifting past, and anticipating the imminent culinary delights. If that isn’t a description of La Dolce Vita, then we don’t know what is. And after a day of Roman ruins and medieval cities, of exquisite art and gorgeous countryside, you can indulge in some quality me-time, Italian style. We know Italy from top to toe (of the boot) so discover it with us.

We loved Matera long before James Bond did, so let Cosa take you there and to Puglia, a region of trulli stone huts, seaside cities and amazing food.

As the saying goes, all roads lead to Rome. Luckily they also reach every part of Italy, both on the boot-shaped mainland and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The new high-speed train, Frecciarossa, has cut journey times, so that Milan to Rome is now under three hours. Whether by road or rail, Cosa knows how to get you around Italy, plus what to see and where to stay while you’re there. Andiamo!

Italy facts

From the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, Italy has played a leading role in European history for centuries. But it’s actually only been a modern country since 1861, when the many city-states like Venice and Florence finally united as one kingdom. After World War Two Italy became a republic, with an elected government in the capital, Rome, and a founding member of the European Union. Its population is around 60 million.
