Italy's Most Beautiful Villages
This collection of Italy's most beautiful villages has been drawn from thousands of contenders and represents a mere drop in the ocean of what the country has to offer.
There are around eight thousand official municipalities in Italy but thousands of other smaller villages or hamlets that lie around them. So to make this list is no small achievement but each one of these beautiful villages deserves its place.
Within the villages we find the quirky such as with Alberobello and its conical trulli houses, astonishing natural landscapes such as those surrounding Castelluccio, or dramatic hilltop locations.
