Italy, officially the Italian Republic (Italian: Repubblica italiana), is a unitary parliamentary republic within the European Union, located in Southern Europe. To the north, it borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia along the Alps. To the south, it consists of the entirety of the Italian Peninsula, Sicily, Sardinia–the two largest islands in the Mediterranean Sea–and many other smaller islands.
Italy is a wonderful country, been there a couple of times for the Verona Opera Festival. However, if you need accommodation in Italy, check out: http://www.travel-italy.co.uk/en/. They’re featuring a lot of apartments, villas and houses, so most certainly you’ll find something no matter the place.
