Bus Tour : The value of hop-on-hop-off tourist buses is often debated but there's no doubt they provide a useful means of orientation for first time visitors. Several companies operate very similar circular routes with regular open-top departures from Termini railway station.

Another day, another place, a local vintner shared a glass of his wine with me within the fortress walls of a 650-year-old San Clemente by the sea, in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.

The historic square at the foot of Rome's monumental Spanish Steps is closed to traffic from Aug 4, the latest in a series of new pedestrian-only zones in the Eternal City.

Crosses dot the tourist maps of Venice, denoting churches and former convents, some of which have been left to crumble into the ground.

Going to an Italian Spa? Prepare for Second-Base Action

I distinctly remember the first tryout with a rather handsome man who also happened to be our second chef. I was lying on the table - front up - and to my surprise he removed my towel, poured oil on my nipples, and then for a good five minutes massaged my breasts.

Movie review: Good laughs, great scenery in 'The Trip to Italy'

In "The Trip to Italy," stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, along with director Michael Winterbottom, prove that you can copy an original and still make something charming. Winterbottom and his stars did this before in "The Trip," the 2011 comedy that followed Coogan and Brydon as slightly fictionalized versions of themselves, driving around England's Lake District and sampling fine restaurants that Coogan reviewed for The Observer.
