Italy Holidays

A feast of art, food and scenery – your guide to Italy holidays

Italy is known as the ‘beautiful country’ for a reason, with gorgeous scenery, impressive architecture, and delicious food.  

The long, narrow, boot-shaped nation is edged by a 7600 kilometre coastline, which encompasses rolling vineyards, white beaches, towns and villages sprung from romantic fairy tales, and towering mountain ranges.

Whether you want to dip your toes in warm Mediterranean waters, tick off historical masterpieces, or you simply eat some of the best pizza in the world, Italy is the ideal setting for a memorable holiday.

Italy has always excelled at the finer things in life – whether its fashion, design, coffee, or gelato. There’s so much to enjoy on holidays to Italy, from Michelangelo’s artworks to outdoor opera, and from coastal clubbing to drinks on sun-dappled piazzas. Ready to plan your trip? Read on to find out everything you need to know, and more! 

And if you’re looking for a scenic escape to an idyllic lakeside town, look no further than the Italian Lakes. The most popular Italian Lakes holidays take in Lake Garda, Lake Como, or Lake Maggiore. Which one will you choose?
