Italy is located on the Italian Peninsula in Southern Europe and on the two largest islands in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily and Sardinia. Italy shares its northern, Alpine boundary with France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. The independent states of San Marino and the Vatican City are enclaves within the Italian Peninsula, and Campione d'Italia is an Italian exclave in Switzerland.

Quotes

"Italy has given birth to the great Agriturismo and Slow Food movements, and so many parts of that great country--home of Renaissance Humanism--remains almost as they were hundreds of years ago. Yes, there are the dirty factory towns in the huge industrialized nation, yes there are towns overly touristed like Florence, but Italians place a huge premium on Mother Earth as a matter of cultural practice and identity (forget the crazy politics). And their hospitality towards others includes millions of testimonials, including their willingness to engage foreigners in conversations of all type no matter how badly travelers mangle their language." - Greg Hubbs, Responsible Travel Week
