Italy, a European country bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, is famous for its cuisine and influence on Western culture. Although it may vary from region to region (inland northern areas are cooler, while the south is hot and dry), this country enjoys a predominantly Mediterranean climate, especially along the coast and on the Sicily and Sardinia islands.
Rome, the capital city, is the country’s political and religious centre (it is where the city-state of the Vatican is located). The vast majority of the country’s 62 million inhabitants is Roman Catholic. With its ruins and art, the city of Rome is the symbol of the ancient Roman civilisation.
