A luxury holiday in Italy can satiate every appetite: thriving cities of culture are a year-round attraction; enchanting islands are surrounded by glistening, crystal-clear waters; hidden coves and luxury resorts dot the rugged coastline and the Lakes, framed by the Alps, provide a true escape to the country.
It is no surprise that these Italian attractions have been drawing visitors for many centuries. The epitome of artistic expression for hundreds of years, Italy has understandably been a fertile training ground for artists and musicians from all over the world. And a luxury holiday to its famous cities will show you why: Florence, the birthplace of the renaissance; Rome, the Eternal City and Venice with its mysterious alleys and intriguing feudal history. Take a 'Grand Tour' of all three and you are sure to be captivated.
For a bit more relaxation, a waterside break is ideal. A luxury holiday to Sicily or Sardinia can provide some beach-based idylls where you can soak up the sun and the breathtaking Italian Lakes will leave you awe struck by their spectacular mountain scenery. Once you have experienced some of this beautiful country on a luxury holiday, you are sure to keep returning to discover more of Italy's rich and diverse culture and landscape.
