Italy Trips

Why Italy?

Timeless beauty, intriguing ruins and world-famous cuisine are just a few reasons why Italy is one of Europe’s best-loved destinations.

Rome, Florence and Venice. The sparkling isle of Sicily, the vineyards of Tuscany and the ruins of Pompeii. Even if you’ve never set foot in Italy, chances are you’re already familiar with images of its best-known attractions, such is the reach of its beauty. Rome is home to epic sights such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Roman Forum. Here, coexisting alongside a timeless pagan legacy, you’ll find the epicentre of Roman Catholicism (and the world’s smallest country) in the Vatican City.

In Tuscany, medieval towns peek out between verdant hills, and it’s here that you’ll encounter the lifeblood of Italian agriturismo – the perfect location for a restorative wellness escape. Over in Venice, you’ll find a city of pure enchantment, where turquoise canals flow between faded buildings – as mysterious as the ebbing tides which keep Venice afloat. If medieval culture takes your interest, you can’t leave without visiting the Basilica di San Marco, a gilded masterpiece of Byzantine architecture.

Head south to Sicily for sun-soaked escapism, where the warm Mediterranean laps up on ancient, volcanic shores. There are canyoning thrills, lava field hiking and southern cuisine all to be savoured. Are you in?
