Travel to Italy / Italy Vacation Rentals

The art! The architecture! The fashion! The food! The generous people of Italy welcome vacationers with open arms, so you will feel extra cozy in an Italy vacation rental, even after an exhausting day of seeing site after site.

Italian Art and Cuisine

Art in Italy takes on several meanings. It can be paintings such as “The Last Supper” by Leonardo Da Vinci, or a few eras of architecture. Wearable art can be found in the fashion houses of Milan. Art for the ears is found in classical Italian composers, regional folk music, opera, and more contemporary sounds. Whatever the definition, you won’t want to escape art in Italy; you can’t. Cuisine found in Italy is its own art form. The wines produced here are world-renowned, and the fresh citrus from Sicily grows to very large sizes. Naples is considered to be the modern-day birthplace of pizza. Italy’s places to eat range from fine dining at a trattoria to a quick panineria. An Italian vacation rental will transport you to a truly gorgeous and colorful world you've likely never experienced before!
