The majority of tourists visit the holy places and historical monuments, including the Colosseum and the Romanum in Rome, the ghettos of Venice, the Verona theater, the ruined city of Pompeii, the beaches of Costiera amalfitana and the Tuscan Brigade.
Italy is the cradle of Western civilization as we know it today, and the ancient Roman Empire was formed. Tourism is a historical and cultural first class, as well as its world-famous delicacies such as pizza, pasta and others. Italy is also a link between Europe and Western Morocco and North Africa.

The population consists of a clear majority who speaks Italian and follows the Catholic religion, but there are major differences in cultural, economic and political issues. About 88% of the population condemns Catholic Christianity, 1% Orthodox, 1% Protestant, and 2% Muslims. Ethnicly, approximately 95% of the population is Italian and nearly 5% are immigrants and their children. There are very small minorities of French, Slavs, Germans and Gypsies.

Communications and Transport
“Alitalia” is the national airline of Italy, along with other small companies. Italy is also a key country in Europe for low-cost airlines, while international flights to Italy generally reach Rome and Milan. Rome has two international airports: Fiumicino (FCO – Leonardo Da Vinci) and Ciampino Airport (CIA) for cheap flights. Central airports are also located in Milan, Bologna, Naples, Pisa, Venice, Turin, Palermo, Catania, Bari and Genoa. Italy is also linked by central train lines with Europe, including Austria, France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. Its internal connections depend on flights between central cities and a good four-type train system (worth noting). Italy also has a very good network of roads and streets to travel, as well as good bus services within and between cities. Maritime transport between the cities of Italy is an excellent way to travel in terms of enjoying travel as well.
On the cellular front, TIM is the largest in Italy, Vodafone and Sky Mobile. There is considerable competition between these companies and even getting agreements with this company can be considered very cheap. Buying a local SIM card and talking through it is also welcome.
