Conde Nast Traveller one of the leading tourism publications have recently held their 2013 Traveller Readers’ Awards ceremony and Italy was once again awarded Favourite Country by it’s 83,000+ readers and I am certainly not going to argue with their perfect choice.
Rome, Venice and Florence all feature in the Top Ten Favourite Overseas Cities and Grand Hotel Villa Feltrinelli scooped up 2nd place in the Overseas Holiday Hotels.
Having lived in Italy for almost 20 years and with family still living there and working in the tourism sector this news brings me much joy and a hearty applause to my favourite country, well done guys.
Hand on heart I can tell you that Italy is the best place to take your family on holiday, children are adored in Italy as any guest will soon discover. The gastronomy talks for itself and is most likely the best in the world, the wines are of excellent superior quality and there’s enough culture to keep you going for a lifetime.
Everywhere you go in Italy has something to discover and amaze you, try it sometime, actually look into it for next year’s holiday and see for yourself why the country is winner of the Favourite Country category.
I am lucky enough to be attending a press trip to Italy at the end of October where I shall join the Liberty of the Seas at Civitavecchia, sail to Naples and then on to Barcelona with the Royal Caribbean. To say I am giddy with excitement is an understatement.
More news coming soon and very well done Italy!
