Italy, officially known as the Italian Republic, is a Southern European country bordering France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia to the north, with a border formed by the Alps. The country consists of the boot-shaped Italian Peninsula, along with Sicily and Sardinia – the two biggest islands of the Mediterranean Sea – and dozens of smaller islands. Within Italy lie two independent states – San Marino and Vatican City. Overall, the territory overs more than 116,000 square miles, making it slightly larger than the state of Arizona.

Population and language
More than 61 million people live here, making it the fifth most populous European country. The population is unevenly distributed, with the metropolitan areas surrounding Rome and Naples home to the majority of the country's inhabitants. Roman Catholicism is by far the most common religion in the country; Italy is home to the greatest number of Roman Catholic churches per capita. More than 90% of Italians identify as Christian. Italians comprise the largest ethnic group, with an estimated 92% of the total population. The official language is Italian.

The country is renowned for its rich history of art, culture, and literature. Notable Italian artists include Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Bernini, and Italy is widely known for being the birthplace of opera. The country is also known for its cuisine; cheese, tomatoes, pasta, wine, and coffee play a central part in Italian meals.

Major cities and tourist destinations
Major cities in Italy include Rome, Milan, Naples, and Turin. Rome, the capital of Italy, was the capital of the Roman Empire, and for many centuries has been a political and religious center of Western civilization. Italy is home to 47 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Firenze, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy, is best-known for Renaissance architecture and museums filled with famous paintings and sculptures. Vatican City, while considered an independent state, is a popular tourist destination within Italy.

Italy's temperate seasonal climate is welcoming to tourists. The Mediterranean climate tends to be humid and warm, while the higher altitudes to the north tend to be colder and snowy. Average winter temperatures vary from 0 °C (32 °F) to 12 °C (54 °F), and average summer temperatures range from 20 °C (68 °F) to over 30 °C (86 °F).

Italians enjoy a high standard of living. Italy was a founding member of the European Union, and has the tenth-highest GDP in the world, currently estimated to be $2.16 trillion USD. In the years following World War II, Italy rapidly transformed from an economy based in agriculture to one of the world's most industrialized nations. The world's largest wine producer, Italy is also known for automobile, appliance, industrial, and fashion design. Since joining the European Union, the currency within Italy has been the Euro.

Italy has an extensive rail network connecting with destinations in other European countries. Its road network is equally extensive. Travelers frequently find car hire to be a convenient way to travel amongst popular Italian tourist destinations.
