All of Italy
www.borghitalia.it: Nice website with travel information for selected towns in Italy. From the website: "In March 2001 the Club of "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES IN ITALY" was founded through the incentive of the Tourism Council of the ANCI (National Association of Italian Municipalities). This project arose from the need to promote the great heritage of History, Art, Culture, Environment and Traditions found in small Italian towns which are, for the most part, cut off from the flow of visitors and tourists."
