Italy voted Favourite Country in the Conde Nast Traveller Readers Awards 2012

It was a real triumph for Italy at this year's Conde' Nast Traveller Readers' Awards, now in its 15th edition. The Awards ceremony was held at the British Museum on 6 September 2012.

Italy was voted "Favourite Country", in front of runner-up France (2), United States (3) and Spain (4) and many other European and worldwide destinations.

Rome and Florence took respectively 5th and 6th place in the category "Favourite Overseas Cities".

Italy was also awarded the first prize in the "Top 100 Best of the Best" category as best overall holiday experience. An incredible achievement!

The Awards, among the most important in the travel press, are voted by the readers of Conde' Nast Traveller (83.000 circulation) who fill in a questionnaire on their holiday preferences and experiences. The data is then collated and analyzed by an independent company and winning lists are then compiled.
