A country renowned for its history, culture, gastronomy, and effortless sophistication, Italy is a delight to the senses.
Soak up the late summer sun with a stay at the Hotel Capotaormina, a modern Sicilian oasis set atop its own rugged headland and private beach, or tour the country’s west coast, complete with idyllic cliff top towns, stretching bays and arguably Italy’s finest seafood.
For an in-land holiday, discover the history and romance of Rome, Florence and Venice while travelling by first class rail, or perhaps wend your way through Puglia’s olive groves, vineyards and whitewashed villages, stopping off at private beaches en route on a rewarding self-drive.
