The regions of Italy, from A to Z

Abruzzo, a rustic region located near the center of Italy, often gets ignored by international travelers. And it’s a shame: With attractive landscapes, mountains, and beaches, it’s the ideal place to “get away from it all.”

Calabria

You should visit Calabria: if you would like to visit the beach, but still be away from the crowds,  you’d like to go off the tight road, or you are traveling on a  tight budget, maybe you want a taste of classic southern Italy, from the small towns their delicious food.

Tuscany

Tuscany is legendary for its food and wine, as the region produces Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, among others.

While is touristy and some of its towns and cities can be expensive and busy, there are still plenty of undiscovered places of this large, central region.

Is often mentioned as the “green heart of Italy,” Umbria is right in the center of the boot, right next to Tuscany, to whom it’s always compared.

No less than 60 million travelers visit the Veneto every year!

A historically poor and agricultural town, the Veneto has bloomed ever since the 70s; actually it’s Italy’s third-richest region, after Lombardy and Lazio. Although the industry and tourism are very important here, the agriculture sector still plays a part, and it produces some of Italy’s most famous wines, including Prosecco, Valpolicella, and Soave.

The top towns to visit here for either their art, beauty or architecture include Vicenza, Verona, Padua, Venice and Belluno.
