​Of all the countries in the world, Italy is perhaps the most magical of all.

One of the world’s most glamorous and romantic destinations with a cuisine that defies description, Italy is simply captivating. Extending gracefully into the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, her landscapes are dazzling, her towns and cities elegant and she boasts a fascinating history that has spanned civilisations.

Italy holidays can span the majestic mountains and misty lakes of the north, through wonderful walled villages and glorious Renaissance cities of the beautiful rolling heartlands, to the glorious city of Rome and on to the wonderful beaches and islands of the south. Italy luxury holidays are awash with truly cosmopolitan destinations.

Best Time to Travel
A&K Europe Travel Experts suggest that Coastal areas and the islands are great year round, although July and August can be very hot. The arts and opera seasons are generally at their peak outside these months. August is very much a shut down month as Italians take their annual break.
