Where stories begin
JOIN US ON A HOLIDAY TO ITALY
Find yourself in a country whose people are bursting with passion, life and exuberance. Dip your toes into sparkling Lake Garda, framed by mountains, explore the idyllic isle of Capri and walk in the footsteps of one of the world’s great ancient empires, in eerie Pompeii.
Explore rugged coastlines, dotted with remote fishing villages, tread lightly on active volcano Mount Vesuvius, wander over the vineyard-clad rolling hills of Tuscany or simply relax on any of the country’s glorious beaches. If your interest in Italy lies in its history, the chance to take in Rome’s ancient heart, with its imposing Colosseum and ancient arches is not to be missed.
While Rome pulls at all who visit Italy, the country boasts so many worthy alternatives to the capital that you may find yourself unable to choose. Venice, a one-of-a-kind city, famed both for its location and its architecture, Florence, Tuscany’s Renaissance capital, hip Milan, fair Verona and Naples – set in the long shadow of Mount Vesuvius.
And should the mainland and its trappings leave you wanting to explore even further afield, Italy’s major islands promise unique culture, laidback locals, sun-soaked beaches and simply wonderful foods.
Whether you choose the clear air of the country’s mountainous north, the relatively undiscovered south east, the vibrant west coast or one of its many wonderful cities, one thing is assured: you will eat simply irresistible food and drink some of the world’s finest wine.
Wherever you choose to hang your hat, Italy is sure to offer a warm welcome.
