Soul-stirring cities, world famous art, waist-expanding food and wine – holidays to Italy will captivate you from the word go. The only difficulty you’ve got is deciding which slice of this gorgeous country to plump for.
Will you take the scenic drive along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, and discover Italian gems like Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento? Hike through the breathtaking Tuscany countryside en route to Pisa or Florence? Or maybe give the cities a miss and make for the golden sands gilding the Tuscany Coast?
Of course, the choices don’t end there when it comes to holidays in Italy. We can whisk you off to Venice for a romantic gondola ride through its shimmering canals.
