Italy experiences tailored to you

  • Personalised travel advice

  • In-destination support

  • ABTOT & ATOL financial protection

Mama mia! In Italy, life is just one big party. You automatically learn to enjoy the tranquillity of its national parks and the cordiality with which you are greeted by everyone. Travelling around Italy offers you a journey where you really get to know the destination and the people that live there. You’ll get the chance to stay in some really special places, such as a 15th-century castle, an ancient monastery or an agriturismo with trulli houses. Make fresh pasta in Umbria, hop on a real Vespa to scoot through San Gimignano, visit the Pope in Rome and take a dip in the crystal clear waters of Cefalu on Sicily.
