Delve into one of the richest and most evocative cultures in Europe
From Venice's palazzo-lined canals to Tuscany's Renaissance showstoppers and Rome's honey-stoned grandeur to the ancient ruins of the south, the romance of Italy indescribable.
Explore the north's imposing mountains and serene lakes. Travel the softly undulating central heartlands and explore the Neapolitan Riviera's effortlessly romantic resorts.
Italy’s many states only unified as recently as 1860. Strong cultural identities, independent spirit and regional pride are evident throughout Italy.
Venice is a city that has endured both triumph and tragedy. It’s risen from its marshy foundations to become a labyrinth of placid waterways and sweeping bridges. Rome is a heady blend of artistic and architectural masterpieces. The city's 2,700 years of history are on display everywhere. The term 'living museum' is rarely more appropriately used than with Rome. And no tour of Italy would be complete without a stay in Florence. The birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is home to the Uffizi, the Accademia and the Bargello.
On a tour of Italy you’ll also have the chance to explore the glorious Tuscan countryside. Home to medieval hill towns, incredible wineries and rustic trattoria, it’s Italy at its very best. The Amalfi Coast, with its azure waters, great food and vertiginous towns, is another fantastic Italian destination. Once you’ve explored its spectacular clifftops and eateries, hop on a ferry or a flight to one of Italy’s beautiful islands and relax on some of Europe’s best stretches of sand.
