Vineyards and olive groves in Chianti, canals and gondoliers in Venice, and ancient ruins in Rome… It’s hard to imagine anywhere more captivating than Italy. One thing’s for sure: no matter where you begin, your first visit will spark a lifelong love affair.
Rurall Idyll, Urban Paradise
Italy’s varied landscapes stretch from the snowcapped peaks of the Alps in the north to the sun-kissed beaches of Sicily, so holidaymakers are spoilt for choice. As well as idyllic rural destinations with breathtaking mountains and coastline, Italy is brimming with stunning cities to explore. Rome is a treasure trove of ancient sites and artefacts while Florence, capital of the Renaissance, is a pure celebration of art and architecture.
Full Of History & Flavour
Venture a little further south and you’ll reach the coastal city of Naples in the Campania region. Nearby Mount Vesuvius dominates the skyline; its eruption in 79 AD buried the town of Pompeii in ash, resulting in one of the largest (and most fascinating) archeological sites in the world. The very soul of Naples, and of Italy in general for that matter, is food. Alongside trademark Neapolitan gelato, you can sample balsamic vinegar in Modena, tuck into a true bolognese in Bologna, or hunt for truffles in Tuscany. Your tastebuds will thank you for it.
Italy’s familiar ‘boot’ shape affords the country mile upon mile of picturesque coastline on the Mediterranean, Tyrrhenian and Adriatic Seas. The glorious Amalfi Coast, with its clifftop houses and Michelin-star restaurants, stretches along the Sorrentine Peninsula. And further north, the UNESCO-listed villages of ‘Cinque Terre’ dot the coast with colour from Monterosso to Riomaggiore.

Chalet Colle Lo Zoppo Arpino
Sandra and Rocco are fantastic hosts - nothing was too much trouble.
