Destination Information for Italy

Famed for being the birthplace of both the Roman Empire and the Renaissance, it is hardly surprising that Italy is one of the most culturally significant places in Europe. In the capital of Rome, the Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre of its kind ever built by the Roman Empire, giving visitors an insight into the world of gladiators. In Pompeii, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. preserved many artefacts, as mosaics and sculptures from the period were encased in lava. Guided tours of the city allow tourists to take in these rarities.

Synonymous with its canals and gondolas, the unique city of Venice is another of Italy’s attractions, with The Grand Canal the most famous of its waterways. Or if tourists are searching for natural phenomena, Lake Como is one of Italy’s most scenic areas, spectacularly enclosed by mountains at its edges.

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is primarily spread to humans either by infected ticks or animal blood. Human-to-human transmission can also occur resulting from close contact with the blood, organs or other bodily fluids of an infected person.

West Nile virus

West Nile virus (WNV) is spread by mosquitoes in many countries. There are usually no symptoms, although some people develop mild flu-like symptoms, nausea and skin rash. The virus is not contagious and should get better without any treatment.
