You can easily spend your holiday in Italy lying on a beach, visiting galleries and museums or ambling among ancient ruins, but what if you're looking for something more active?
Whether you want to see the dramatic Amalfi coastline from the sky or take a speedboat ride on Lake Como - just like George Clooney - there are plenty of adventurous ways to experience Italy.
But even if you're looking to combine your holiday with less adrenaline-fuelled activities, there's a lot of choice, and even one that combines food.
