Italy

Discover Italy

You are truly spoilt for choice when visiting Italy which means that knowing where to go can be almost overwhelming. Thankfully, a tour is the perfect way to explore this remarkable country. Italy’s spectacularly scenic landscape can be considered one of Mother Nature’s masterpieces with its rugged snow-capped mountains and alpine lakes in the North along with the crystal-clear waters and breath-taking coastlines in the South. There are also active volcanoes with fiery craters, rolling hills with vineyards and lush forests.

Italy is a country where culture and art go hand in hand and happens to have more UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites than any other country. It is undoubtably the focal point of the Roman Empire and is the birthplace of Renaissance with a number of world-famous treasures including da Vinci’s The Last Supper in Milan, Michelangelo’s sculpture of David in Florence and the Sistine Chapels in Rome. The array of wonderful buildings burst with history and the diverse architecture ranges from Romanesque and Gothic to Renaissance and Baroque. For example, the Duomo of Pisa is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture and Siena’s outstanding cathedral has a distinctive Gothic flair.

The Italian cuisine is a unique spectacle and has influenced food culture around the world. Each region of Italy tends to have a distinctive cuisine and Italians pride themselves on using the freshest ingredients which are bought locally, often from farmers stands, local butchers and seafood markets. The array of cheeses, olive oils, fresh bread, pasta and pizza are incredibly delicious and meals are well-made, rich in taste and texture and guaranteed to leave you hungry.

Highlights of Italy

  • Rome & the Vatican City

    The vibrant, modern street life is a delightful contrast to the haunting ruins and historical, iconic monuments of this awe-inspiring city. Home to the world-famous Colosseum and other slices of history such as the Roman Forum and Pantheon; this city almost resembles a huge open-air museum. The picturesque streets feature bustling cafes and the pretty piazzas offer many tempting restaurants. A visit to Rome wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the magnificent Vatican City. Ruled by the head of the Catholic Religion, the Vatican City is the smallest state in the world and features some of Rome's most popular attractions, including St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapels.

  • Venice

    Located in the Veneto region of Italy, Venice is one of the most famous and recognisable cities in the world. The city was built on small islands and relies on a series of waterways and canals rather than roads. The most popular attractions are the world-renowned Grand Canal which runs through the centre of the city and the Piazza San Marco, the central square which houses the stunning St. Mark’s Basilica.

  • Pompeii

    The ancient Roman ruins of Pompeii is located near the Bay of Naples and is Europe’s most compelling archaeological site. In 79 A.D., the Mount Vesuvias erupted burying Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash and killing all of its residents. The city was rediscovered in 1748 and when carefully excavated, it revealed intact buildings, artefacts and skeletons. The archaeology site is a true wonder to explore.

  • Florence

    The lovely city of Florence is jam-packed with extraordinary art, architectural masterpieces and culinary delights. When strolling through this glorious city its almost as if each cobbled street leads to a different medieval chapel, 15th-century palace or marble basilica. The city is also home to world-class art including Michelangelo’s sculptures and is a haven for fashion lovers.

  • Sicily

    Sitting in the heart of the Mediterranean, the gorgeous island of Sicily has many natural wonders and treasured archaeologic sites. The diverse landscape features sandy beaches, hidden coves and volcanoes with smoking craters, but the real highlight of this glorious island is the historical monuments. Greek temples, Norman churches, Baroque palaces and other Roman monuments tell the tale of historic Sicily.

  • Pisa

    Pisa is known for its architectural project that didn’t quite go to plan. The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa draws attention from tourists all over the world and is one of many magnificent attractions in this fantastic city. The city is also home to an elite university meaning the area has a lively café and bar scene.

  • Assisi

    Assisi is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world and is the birthplace of one of the most admired Saints in the Catholic Religion. The stunning town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with many highlights including the striking 14th-century castle that sits at the very top of the town and the Basilica of St. Francis.

  • Siena

    The colourful city of Sienna sits in the heart of Tuscany and is surrounded by well-preserved walls. The city boasts fine examples of Gothic architecture and is known around the world for the famous Palio run. The Palio run is a horse race which is held twice a year and takes place in the unique piazza del Campo; one of Europe’s greatest medieval squares renowned for its beauty.

  • Arezzo

    Arezzo is located in the South East of Tuscany, a region that isn’t quite as popular with tourists. The city’s medieval centre is still beautiful despite being almost completely destroyed during WWII and there are an abundance of monuments, churches and monuments. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, Arezzo is the perfect destination to explore.

  • Puglia

    The sun-kissed region of Puglia is located in the ‘heel of Italy’s boot’ and is a favourite summer getaway for Italian locals. Puglia has everything from friendly white-washed coastal towns to glorious white sand beaches, a fascinating history and a delicious rustic cuisine. The summer months in Puglia are particular exciting with an array of food and music festivals taking place throughout the region.

  • Sardinia

    The island of Sardinia boasts some of the most stunning beaches in the whole of Europe, the crystal-clear sea is the bluest of blues and the sand is soft and white. Sheer cliffs seclude the area and there are hidden coves at every turn. The island is great for adventure lovers and has many opportunities to hike, windsurf and dive amongst the shipwrecks off Cagliari’s coast.

  • Verona

    Famous for being the backdrop of Shakespeare’s legendary Romeo and Juliet play, Verona’s charming city centre is the epitome of Renaissance romance. The striking 1st-century amphitheatre dominates the centre and hosts the city’s much-loved annual summer opera festival. With impressive art, divine regional culinary and alluring architecture; this city of star-crossed lovers is one of Northern Italy’s gems.
