> See our list of official tourist websites by region.

> See our General Italy Information for links covering all of Italy.

> See Leslie's Links for more online resources for travel to Italy, by region.

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."

Bill from Italy: "Probably the most spectacular contemporary sculpture garden I've ever seen is Niki de Saint Phalle's Tarot Garden - South of Grossetto near Garavicchio. If you are familiar with contemporary sculpture - you will know her work - she and her husband did the fountain in front of the Pompidou in Paris. Her work at the Tarot Garden is just beyond belief."
