With photogenic alpine landscapes, quaint historic villages, and food offerings from family-run restaurants to fine dining - Northern Italy is the perfect holiday destination for over 50s travellers.

Northern Italy is more than just mountains and Milan. Though those parts are exquisite, too. The true beauty of Northern Italy is that there is such an impressive, unique range of landscapes to fill your holiday with. In the east, there’s the treasured canal city of Venice, as well as the fabled home of Romeo and Juliet, Verona. Head south, and you have the paradise that is the Ligurian coast, with Cinque Terre and its multi-coloured fishing villages spectacularly wedged into the dramatic yet tiny coves. A journey to the northernmost part of the region will have you in a prime position to explore the Dolomites and the Italian lakes, with the fashion capital - and Italy’s largest city - Milan just beneath.

An escorted tour of Northern Italy is perfect for travellers who aren’t fixed on having a particular "type" of holiday, this is because the region caters to such a variety of tastes. You could explore the mountains via rail journey, taking in the beautiful surrounds onboard Bernina Express and the little trains which operate throughout the Dolomites, or you could live it up in the Great Lakes, with the outdoor lover’s Lake Garda and the ever-glamorous and romantic Lake Como. You might be craving a big city experience, with Milan boasting a traditional yet modern coffee scene with its upscale patisseries and alternative spots, or a smaller city experience, with Venice offering sunset aperitivo on the canals and side trips to the neighbouring craft islands of Murano and Burano.

Regardless of the part of Northern Italy most takes your fancy, it’s a guarantee that you will experience striking scenery, high-quality food and wine - that is unlike anything you’ve tried in the south! - and opportunities to dive deeper into Italian culture and history.
