You may not have cottoned on yet, but we're major fans of Italy
and all it has to offer for a luxury holiday. Where do we start?
The fact that Rome has a vibrancy and buzz that is almost
indescribable. Not to mention that it has more must-see cultural
attractions than you can shake a stick at. Perhaps it's the stark
contrast between the glitz and glamour of the Amalfi Coast and
the relatively undiscovered gem that is Puglia. Or
maybe it's the cultural overdose of sights to be experienced in the
small area of Sicily, from classical ruins to picture perfect
beaches. And that's before we even mention Florence or
Venice. It's a heady mix and, in our humble opinion,
Italy is the whole package when it comes to luxury holidays.
We've been sending clients on luxury Italian holidays since we
started out, and as well as being home to some of the most popular
regions in the world (think Rome, Venice, Tuscany), it is also
perfect for those who want to experience something a little more
off the beaten track. The Dolomites remain a relatively undiscovered skiing
gem and even less appreciated is that they are a gorgeous place to
visit during the summer months. There are activities galore (think
walking, cycling, riding, Via Ferrata
mountaineering) and, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the views
aren't bad either. Puglia, on the heel of Italy's boot, has
garnered more and more attention over the last couple of years but
remains relatively undiscovered and is well worth exploring, if
only for the legendary trulli houses.
Our fantastic Europe team are here to help with every detail of
your trip, from where to eat the best Tagliatelle Vongole ever (at
the Monastero Santa Rosa on the Amalfi Coast in case you
were actually wondering) to what time of day is best to visit
Rome's main attractions. In essence, Italy is an oldie but a goodie
when it comes to luxury holidays, which is why we've sent hundreds
of our clients there in the past and will continue to do so until
the end of time. Enough said.
