Italy is the most returned-to destination in the world, and it’s no wonder; just try taking in all of its culture, its history, and its culinary delights in one trip. With over 1.3 million copies sold, this beloved calendar immerses Italophiles in a whole year of the country’s enticing elegance highlighting Florence, Umbria, Lazio, Ventotene, and eight more thrilling regions. Be transported to romantic waterside strolls in Venezia. Rolling pastures in Tuscany, redolent with fresh tomatoes and grapes. Outdoor cafés in Florence serving dark, smooth espresso. And Rome’s Pantheon and Coliseum, which even now, millennia later, testify to the eternal city’s reputation as caput mundi.
