This narrow boot of crinkled land, extending gracefully into the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, has seen the birth of empires, cradled the growth of civilisations and shaped the destinies of continents.
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
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.
