Italian Islands
Introducing Italy's Idyllic Islands

When you think of Italy you probably do not immediately think of its islands. You are perhaps more likely to picture well-known places like Florence, Rome and Venice.

So you may be surprised to learn there are in fact over 700 official Italian islands - although most of these are little more than rocks in the sea and in danger of losing their ‘island’ status at any time!

Several of the uninhabited islands can be visited for diving, fishing or walking excursions - you can even wade to some of them!

However, there are 30 or so inhabited Italian islands that make ideal holiday destinations. There is Sardinia with its remarkably beautiful beaches, Sicily with its rich cultural heritage and a whole host of smaller offshore islands, each unmistakably Italian but also boasting their own independent character and wealth of treasures to be discovered.
