Italy offers so many different types of holidays that everyone will find their ideal trip whether by the beach in Sardinia
, in the countryside in Tuscany
or on the banks of the stunning lake Garda. However, you will notice one theme is present wherever you choose to stay : a vibrant but at the same time relaxing atmosphere where nothing seems to really matter – the famous Dolce Vita ! Whether you visit the bustling cities or mountain villages you will notice that time seems to stop or rather it doesn’t seem to have the same meaning as elsewhere. You must take your time… Tasting exquisite truffles from Alba, locally made buffalo mozzarella or mouth-watering pizza must be done slowly. Rushing meals in Italy is considered as to be rude – you must savour every mouthful and above all you must discuss in depth the ingredients of your dish. Strolling and chatting after a long meal is one of the favourite pastimes in Italy, a perfect holiday activity. When in Rome … as they say !
Even though the famous cities of Rome and Florence
are unmissable stops on your holiday in Italy
, this intensely rich country offers so many other gems just waiting to be uncovered on the mainland but also on the nearby islands of Sardinia
. Stretches of pristine white sand, pretty coves and creeks, rugged landscapes and turquoise waters await you in Sardinia. Put all this together, add some stylish restaurants and nightlife, luxury shopping and a boat trip or two and you have the perfect summer holiday with family or friends in Italy. Part of the Tuscan archipelago only 10 miles off the coast, Elba is a green oasis with an abundance of natural landscapes, charming villages and around 150 beaches. Visit the famous Italian Lake District and book a holiday rental in the spa town of Sirmione
or the pretty town of Castelnuovo del Garda
both set on the banks of Lake Garda, one of the most popular places to visit in this region. Among the 18 lakes, the most famous are Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda and Lake Como but don’t hesitate to visit the smaller, quieter lakes to get away from the crowds. Take a boat trip to enjoy the views of the pretty villages on the water’s edge and soak up the unique atmosphere in this exceptional region of Italy.
offers a variety of wonderful landscapes, by the seaside, in the countryside and in the mountains, which will take your breath away. On the long coastline of Italy, you will find idyllic beaches offering the chance to relax and enjoy the wonderful warm climate sunbathing or swimming in the crystal-clear waters. Many pretty seaside towns attract tourists from around the world who come to enjoy the casual atmosphere in the restaurants and cafes where you can try some of the exceptional Italian culinary delights and, of course, the renowned Italian wines while watching the world go by.
