Beach Holidays in Italy

The best locations in Italy for a beach holiday? Following the perimeter of the coasts from west to east, and looking for the most beautiful, cleanest, and possibly… less crowded beach?

Sicily is certainly one of the most fascinating regions of Italy, rich in history, wonderful beaches and particularly suggestive natural landscapes. However, given the abundance of places to visit, the best solution to see the island is to plan a tour.
