Italy tourist Areas - Newly added

In order to make easier to our visitors the way they find accommodation in Italy on our website, we have listed a couple of new tourist areas.

Grouping destinations part of the same geographical region, we may help visitors to locate the accommodation which better suites with the specific needs for each one.

Here you have the newly addad areas:

Italian Alps
The scenic Italian Alps comprise lush valleys and pine forests set against the backdrop of jagged white peaks stretching through the clouds. The Alps are loved by everyone: by sports enthusiasts who wait for the winter months in order to get out onto the downhill slopes or to slide around the upland plains on the cross-country ski circuits; by the mountaineers who go up in summer to almost inaccessible paths that take them to within an inch of infinity; by nature-lovers who can explore the parks. The Italian mountains are for everyone - a marvelous place in all the seasons of the year. Six Italian Regions overlooking the Alps: Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto, Trentino - Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia. Don't miss the Dolomites: Le Corbusier called the Dolomites "the most beautiful architecture in the world."
Regions forming this area:
Valle d'Aosta - Piedmont - Lombardy - Trentino Alto Adige - Veneto - Friuli Venezia Giulia

Dolomites. A magic that has been repeating itself for millions of years. When day gives way to evening's first shadows, it casts an enchanting spell. Pink rock faces, like the colour of the legend. Like King Laurin's rose. Vast and varied woods and forests are to be found in the Dolomites. An immense plant kingdom. There are 10 Natural Parks that protect the Dolomites' natural heritage. A multitude of museums within the Dolomites recount the history of this land and its people. An immense patrimony that is to be discovered and respected
Regions forming this area:
Trentino Alto Adige - Veneto

Lake Garda
Lake Garda - the entrance to the south, the first tasting of the Italian way of life behind the Alps. The Lake lies beautifully embedded between high mountains, olive groves and vineyards. The region around the Lake is Alpine and Mediterranean at the same time and stupefies by its variety of countryside, vegetation and culture. The places around Lake Garda captivate their visitors with their southern atmosphere, they invite to go for a stroll, to go shopping or to simply enjoy doing nothing at all. At the same time, this region, full of contrasts, is one of the biggest activity playgrounds in Europe. Here you can find climbing rocks immediately next to surfing spots, mountainbike trails which end on a beach and from the top of a 2000m mountain you can watch the sailing boats on the Lake
Regions forming this area:
Trentino Alto Adige - Veneto - Lombardy

Salento (Salentu in dialect) is the south-eastern extremity of the Apulia region of Italy. It is a sub-peninsula of the main Italian peninsula, sometimes described as the "heel" of the Italian "boot". It encompasses the administrative areas of Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto provinces. The peninsula is also known as Terra d'Otranto, and in ancient times was called variously Messapia, Calabria, and Salentina. Salento is a peaceful land full of history and traditions whose strong points are its natural and architectural beauties, its hospitality, its magic atmosphere, its several wonders to discover, its warm sun, its blue sky, its crystal sea and its dreamlike coast
