Luxury Holidays in Italy offer limitless options. The hustle and bustle of a city break to Milan is in contrast to a relaxing beach holiday along the Amalfi Coast. One of the highlights of an Italian holiday is the fact that it is so easy to get between different parts of the country; this is thanks to Italy’s excellent train service that is fast, efficient and affordable. Hence, a multicentre holiday is definitely something you should consider when visiting Italy.
Best Time to Visit
Italy is such a vast country that is visited for many different reasons, it’s hard to give a single time period in which you definitely have to visit. If you’re after sun whilst you’re away, then the summer months are definitely favourable when you can expect temperatures of between 24°C and 32°C depending on exactly where in Italy you are visiting. If, however, you don’t mind cooler temperatures then Italy can be considered a year round resort; city breaks, in particular, are pleasant during the winter months.
The most popular areas for luxury holidays to Italy include the Lakes, Sicily, Turin, Milan, Sardinia, the Amalfi Coast, the Italian Riviera, Verona, Venice, Florence and Rome.
It’s not all pizza and pasta (well, nearly not all pizza and pasta). The Italians are also proud of the Mediterranean dishes they enjoy which includes lots of breads and oils as well as fresh fruit and vegetable dishes. Those with a sweet tooth will be in for a treat with gelato, tiramisu and panettone aplenty.
History and Culture
Cities such as Rome, Venice and Florence are amongst the most history-rich cities on earth. Sites including the Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa and Saint Mark’s Basilica give you just a flavour of what Italy has to offer.
