We recommend visiting Lake Bracciano, a great family friendly destination that offers a vast array of water-based activities such as motor-boating, water-skiing, sailing and windsurfing.

Italian Cuisine

Amongst one of the main draws to Italy is the incredible cuisine. Fresh produce, traditional recipes and family mealtimes are sacred across the country, bringing people together in an almost ritualistic worship of bold, punchy and ultimately classic Italian flavours. Italian cuisine still rather regional – you’ll find that the northern regions cook more with rice and polenta, stuffed pasta and beef, veal, and pork. Dried pasta, vegetable soups and lamb or goat dishes are more prevalent in the south. Of course each region, city and town claims its own specialty – delicious balsamic vinegar in Modena, pizza like no other in Naples, bright and zesty citrus fruit on the Amalfi Coast.
