If Italy is often called the "Belpaese" (Italian for “the beautiful country”), there must be a reason.

With its breath-taking landscapes, amazing sceneries and beautiful art and architecture, Italy is for sure one of the most interesting and stunning countries in the world.

There is so much to choose from: if you love art, Rome, Venice and Florence are the perfect city destinations for you, while if you prefer beach life and Italy’s beautiful coastline, then Sicily, Sardinia and Puglia are the right choice to make.

If you have never visited Venice in Italy and you are considering a visit one of these fine days, consider doing so during the Venice carnival that takes place some 40 days before the start of Easter holidays.

According to records, carnival of Venice is believed to have started out way back in 1162 as a celebration of the victory of Serenissima Repubblica against the Patriarch of Aquileia. It is documented that it started as a victory dance as a show of appreciation and reunion in the San Marco square.
