Italy

Ancient historical beauty meets modern chic class

From picturesque hideaway country villages to bustling fashion-centric metropolises, from the snow-capped Dolomites in the North, to the stunning beaches of the Amalfi coast and beyond to its beautiful islands, Italy offers a wealth of travel options for any taste.

Perhaps Europe’s most historically renowned country, Italy is home to incredible architecture stretching back many thousands of years to the days of the Roman Empire; you’ll find architecture from every period since. This deep history gives Italy a truly unique, rich cultural heritage. Wandering around Rome and exploring ancient structures such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon, amongst a thriving, bustling capital is an experience like no other.

Today, Italy is also well-known as a chic, modern and fashionable country. Milan is recognised internationally as one of the most important fashion capitals alongside Paris, London and New York.

And of course, Italy is world-renowned for its incredible food and wine, which you’ll find in abundance, regardless of where you choose to stay.

Top Tip

If you’re planning a trip to Rome as part of your holiday, make sure you give yourself at least a couple of days  to explore. There’s plenty to keep you entertained for a long weekend at the very least just in the capital alone.

Make sure you allow yourself to enjoy the local food and wine and look to sample local dishes wherever you can.
