Our Review

Romance exudes from every nook of the country; northern Italy presents the peaceful waters of Lake Como, a dazzling destination nestled at the foothills of the Alps which not only attracts many famous faces to its tranquil banks, but is a haven for hikers. Travel a little further south for the fashionable sites of Milan, where you can enjoy some designer retail therapy with a side order of gelato, or travel east to explore the incredible and intricate waterways of the Grand Canal, Venice.

When in Rome, indulge in everything to excess; explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon, ancient icons leftover from the Capital’s reign as caput mundi, and dine al fresco against the awesome backdrop of these monuments, or discover the fine heritage of this region's artists, both past and present-day talent, in the many galleries and museums.

The heart of Italy houses two of the country’s popular holiday destinations, Tuscany and Umbria, the latter of which, landlocked, boasts a vast expanse of rustic scenery; a blanket of olive groves and cypress trees, occasionally interrupted by a spattering of medieval, lakeside villages, it’s the total and utter vision of traditional Italy personified. Tuscany presents all these enticing attributes and more; for here you take in the spectacular scenery of rolling hills, rustic villages and ancient vineyards…and then cool off with an indulgent dip in the sea at one of the region's beautiful beaches.
