Art, history and mouth-watering cuisine
Italy holidays are enchanting. Stay in a luxurious hotel, farmhouse or castle, take a grand train journey through unforgettable scenery or drive through gorgeous countryside. Choose to visit beautiful Sorrento, gateway to the spectacular Amalfi Coast, journey to the tranquil shores of stunning Lake Garda or discover the classic sights of romantic Venice.
Italy Holiday Highlights
• Relax on the impossibly romantic shores of Lake Garda which sits in the foothills of the majestic Dolomites and offers breathtaking views, charming restaurants and gorgeous trails for walking and mountain-biking.
• Visit Florence - the driving force of the Renaissance, which created a heartbreakingly beautiful city boasting an abundance of cultural treasures.
• Admire the beauty of ancient Rome, from the dramatic Colosseum to the peaceful Palatine during your holiday in Italy.
• The city of Matera in Basilicata is beautifully carved out of the white rocky cliffs. Wander around the underground labyrinth of streets and churches, and discover the region’s incredible caves.
• Visit the Neapolitan Riviera and enjoy breathtaking views along the Amalfi Drive, cruising up a slender ribbon road along jagged cliffs zig-zagging into the clouds.
• Glide by gondola down the Grand Canal in the iconic city of Venice - a perfect mosaic of islands linked by an intricate network of canals.
• Discover the Small Resorts of the Riviera and roam the impossibly romantic and resplendent gardens of Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, described by Gore Vidal as ‘the most beautiful view in the world’.
• Explore the picturesque town of Alberobello in Puglia which appears to have sprung out of the pages of a fairytale book and is famous for the distinctive conical roofs of the white-washed Trulli houses that pepper the pretty landscape.
• Whilst visiting Rural Tuscany, secure tickets to Palio in Siena – the most famous bareback horserace in history – where the riders and their steeds strut past the crowds in colourful finery.
• Explore the Old Town and charming castles of Sardinia's historic capital city Cagliari and watch a sea of pink flamingos feed in the surrounding marshes.
• Experience one of Italy's oldest folklore displays with the famous Festa di Ceri in Gubbio, Umbria. Watch men run down uneven steep streets with enormous wobbling saints’ heads.
