Italy tailor-made holidays

From Rome to Florence, Capri and more, Italy holidays have long been favourites of ours. The luxurious land of Vespas, espresso, and Sophia Loren, Italy is synonymous with style, sophistication and sheer indulgence. The country is splendidly varied, with great climate, culture and cuisine from the rolling Italian countryside to the historic cities.

The romantic canals of Venice are timeless, the turreted Tuscan hills beckon with unsurpassed beauty, and as for imperial Rome - well, it's been attracting travellers since the time of Augustus. And in Italy, every meal is a delight - Italian food has always been about fresh ingredients, family traditions, and stretching out a long lunch with local wines or limoncello.

Visiting Italy is not just about the classics, though - there are exciting new ways to explore this ancient country, such as a luxury rail journey from London to Venice, or a truly customised self-drive through Sicily to discover how this island has kept its culture unique from the mainland, developing its own twist on food, architecture, and language.

If the coast is calling you, we have a number of beach holidays in Italy that will bring you into the glittering azure waters of the Tyrrhenian or Adriatic Seas. There is nothing like lounging under the sun on a Capri holiday, smelling the soft fragrance of blooming flowers, to make a getaway into a truly memorable event. But if you get restless, consider a two-centre holiday to see more of the country.

And of course, since we specialise in tailor-made holidays, your Italian holiday can be as unique as you. Add nights in your favourite places, or try a new experience like staying in an agriturismo farmhouse, to build the luxury getaway of your dreams.
