Italy is a year-round delight. From wandering the ancient wonders of Rome to exploring the height of artistic achievement in the architectural marvels of Florence; from immersing yourself in the explosion of revelry at Carnevale in Viareggio, to scaling the vertiginous heights of the twisting Amalfi coast, there is an endless trove of riches to explore.
Ranked 71st by land area worldwide, Italy is home to more Unesco World Heritage sites than any other country on Earth. Whether you are exploring life frozen in time two millennia ago in Pompeii, or wandering the birthplace of St Francis in Assisi, wonders of architecture, nature and artistic achievement are never more than a few steps away.
For a place which is a living history lesson, Italy is also one of the world’s capitals of contemporary style. From Dante to Verdi to Ferrante to Piano, this humble boot is the birthplace of many generations of arbiters of taste and observers of life. Your only challenge is choosing which patch is best for you.
Our most popular itineraries include Rome and Assisi, Padua and Venice, or the Island of Sicily.
