By Taschen

To travel through Italy is as close as one gets to being in paradise. For centuries, writers, artists, architects and merchants have been drawn here, inspired by the beauty of Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome. Countless books, paintings, poems and sculptures are evidence of its undying appeal, and over the past 60 years, the country has become one of the world's top travel and holiday destinations.The loveliness of Italy, its architecture, landscapes, culture and food, if not eternal, is certainly enduring, and the easy-going and relaxed Italian lifestyle is still unrivalled.

Great Escapes Italy presents the most amazing landscapes and proceeds to bring them to life. In these mythical surroundings are legendary hotels full of atmosphere, where novels are set, movies are made, weddings are celebrated and famous love stories consummated: Villa d'Este on Lake Como, the Hotel Splendido in Portofino, the Il San Pietro on the Amalfi Coast and the Villa Cimbrone in Ravello—to name just a few. In Great Escapes Italy, Angelika Taschen also reveals where to find more secret and hidden jewels—from the Locanda Cipriani, a romantic hideaway on the island of Torcello, to the atmospheric Castello di Vicarello in Tuscany.
