Italy L. Catt
Possible Itineraries Seasoned travels will probably want to explore the other areas of the country, as well as spend perhaps a bit more in-depth time in the major cities. A week concentrated in any one area, such as the Lake District or the region south of Rome, is just about right. Two weeks in Italy, provides ample opportunity to visit several major regions and cities.
Lodging Options There’s a wide range of hotel chains to choose from in Italy. At the upper end are such organizations Atahotels, Starhotels, and Jolly Hotels (many of the hotels are more moderately priced than others). Hotels in Rome are concentrated around the rail station, the spanish steps, and the Via Veneto (famed for its many sidewalks cafes). Italy does offer wonderful alternative lodging, notably the chance to stay in old villas.
Allied Destinations The lovely and historic French island of Corsica is just off the west coast, and the island-nation of Malta is to the south of Sicily. Moreover, located as it is at the southern tip of Europe, Italy is also a perfect jumping off point to many Eastern Mediterranean cruises start out in Venice, while Western Mediterranean cruises often begin at Civitavecchia.
Cultural Patterns Italy has a rich, exuberant culture, but with traditions that can be quite different from those to which most Americans are accustomed. Business travelers should pay close attention to the customs. The daily pace is slower in southern Italy than in the north. When doing business, travelers should wear their finest clothes. In Italy great clothing is a badge of success.
Factors That Motivate Visitors Some of the world’s best-known ancient sites are here. The food is familiar and wonderful. The country serves as a center for Christian.
