Discover Italy

From the Alpine peaks of the north to the stunning coastlines of the south and beautiful vineyards in between, Italy tours are the perfect way to discover this mesmerising country. Highlights of northern Italy tours include the stunning Liguria region on the Italian Riviera which takes in the colourful fishing villages of Cinque Terre and stylish Portofino, while the picture-postcard Amalfi Coast is one of southern Italy’s most iconic destinations.

Italy is a country where culture and art go hand in hand. After the fall of the Roman empire, the Renaissance was considered a rebirth of civilisation throughout Europe. The artists and architects who were influential in the Renaissance were all born in and around the city of Florence, including Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. This remarkable city is home to Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, plus many more. Not far away is the city of Pisa in Tuscany, renowned for its iconic Leaning Tower.

Rome, nicknamed ‘the eternal city’, was once at the centre of the Roman Empire as well as western civilisation. Its incredible monuments express the power of former emperors, from Augustus to Constantine. The Colosseum was once aroar with the noise of gladiators, and the magnificent Roman Forum was considered the heart of the Roman Empire. The ornate Sistine Chapel is best known for its breathtaking ceiling, painted by Michelangelo, with frames including scenes from the Old Testament.

As well as powerful cities and archaeological treasures, Italy offers outstanding scenery and natural beauty. Lake Maggiore, just south of the Alps, and captivating Lake Garda, are just two of the lakes which make up the popular Italian Lakes. It is impossible not to be seduced by these stunning lakes, as the shorelines are dotted with pretty villages and exquisite villas. The beautiful island of Sicily at the crossroads of the western world is equally as beautiful, and overlooked by the brooding Mount Etna. Tranquil azure waters lap against secluded bays, all set against a backdrop of striking blue sky.
