Lonely Planet writer Nicola Williams describes why she loves Italy. "Italy won me over many moons ago - and when the nearby shores of Lake Geneva became home a decade ago my heart sang. suddenly, Il Bel Paese was an easy motor from home through the Traforo del Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc Tunnel), ushering in chic ski flits to Courmayeur, city breaks in Venice and Milan, foodie weekends hunting white truffles and exploring fine reds in Piemonte, family road trips with the bambini to tuscany. Umbria, Sicily and Puglia in the hot south...Wildly diverse, soulful, passionate and deeply earth-driven, this country's extraordinary variety never fails to thrill and inspire."
