The land of fire and ice

Iceland

is one of the most fascinating territories in the world, and most likely one of the most culturally and landscape richest places
It ranks fifth in the list of the most touristic places in the world.

Italy is historically the cradle of some of the greatest and most famous characters in the history of the world.

From Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Puccini, Brunelleschi and Dante, this incredible country has given birth to artistic, scientific, architectural creations and much more, which still today are a symbol of prestige throughout the world.

Without obviously forgetting the incredible culinary variety.
It is extremely important to know that Italy only unified 150 years ago. Before the unification the present Italian territory was a conglomeration of small duchies and kingdoms independent from every point of view. Entirely different traditions, languages, dialects and customs. What is most appreciated in the world today is the richness of its culture in its beautiful variety of shades.
