Highest roads of Italy

Located in southern Europe, Italy is a long peninsula shaped like a boot, surrounded on the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and on the east by the Adriatic, extending into the Central Mediterranean Sea. The major part of Italy's mountain retreats also invite visitors to experience a wide array of cultural and outdoor activities each season. Italy's Alpine regions are some of the most magical destinations in Europe, and this trip takes you to the best lakes and mountains in the area.
