Romantic and historic, our holidays to Italy charm with their extraordinary natural diversity, world-renowned art, rich cultural heritage and mouth-watering cuisine.

With outstanding natural landscapes, a world-famous artistic heritage and a culinary soul that’s quite simply off the charts, it’s no surprise that Italy is one of our most sought-after holiday destinations. Once the epicentre of the Roman Empire and the birthplace of the Renaissance, Italy is a country that bursts with a wealth of historic legacies. Head into any of its well-loved cities and you'll discover large, medieval piazzas, frescoed churches, world-renowned art museums and extraordinarily haunting ancient ruins. From the southern coast of the chic Riviera to the rustic mountain scenery of the northern Lakes, our hand-picked holidays to Italy offer you the chance to explore the extraordinary cultures, history and natural charms of each unique Italian region. Home of ‘la dolce vita’, where else can you while away hours people-watching outside a pretty streetside café, or idle around cobbled backstreets until you stumble across a giant amphitheatre?

Whether you’re a foodie, art-lover or looking for something well off the beaten tourist track, we can tell you all about the best spots in Italy. Give us a call or pop into your local store and we’ll help craft your perfect Italy holiday.

  • A multi-centre holiday – we recommend combining an art or culture-based city break with a beach, lake or countryside stay
  • Foodies will be in their element in Italy and we have culinary themed tours in Sicily and Tuscany
  • Spotting A-listers on the shores of Lake Como in one of the region’s grand hotels
