More About Italy & Islands
Italy offers up a feast of contrasts from the snow-capped mountains of the Dolomites to the majestic coastline of the Amalfi Coast where visitors get the chance to experience the Italian traditions of an era gone by. Choosing to immerse yourself in one of Italy’s famous islands means you will be able to indulge in the luxury sandy beaches and enchanting hotels situated in Sardinia, Sicily or Ischia. Explore the captivating cities of Italy and all they have to offer; Venetian canals, beautifully sculpted fountains in Rome and prestigious shopping locations in Milan make up a cultured yet sophisticated backdrop to take in wonderful sun-kissed buildings. With options to suit every occasion and budget, travellers looking for a range of holiday experiences like visiting the streets of Pompeii, viewing the beautiful Byzantine mosaics of Ravenna or looking at the period Renaissance art pieces, Italy has it all. If you want to extend your adventures to the outdoors, you can throw yourself into the hands of nature amongst seductive turquoise grottoes and glacial Italian lakes. Tuscany‘s landscape is punctuated with villas, castles, farmhouses, olive groves and, of course, vast vineyards. There's also the golden sands at the beautiful coastal town of Viareggio where soft sands and shallow waters plus freshly caught seafood make this a firm favourite with locals and holidaymakers alike. The appetising seasonal produce and fresh ingredients make the home-style Italian dishes shine - reflecting the wonderful atmosphere of a beautiful country.
