Diving in Italy
Everything you have to know and the best Dive Sites
Italy is one of the most popular holiday countries in Europe. What only few people know though: You can also dive very well here. Especially for beginners, Italy offers diving sites and relics of antique cultures that are worth seeing underwater, especially on the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.
In this respect, a short trip to the Mediterranean coast is worthwhile to go diving and relax at the same time. Easy accessibility, good touristic infrastructure and, of course, the excellent cuisine after a dive, all speak in favour of Italy. At the same time, Italy offers a lot of rather unknown and still beautiful diving sites.
