Scenic views of the countryside and warm hospitality of the people will make your holiday truly enjoyable. What’s more, you could choose from a host of Italian holiday villas, homes, or rentals to enjoy an unforgettable holiday experience.

Exploring the Natural Beauty of Italy

A visit to Campania region is perfect for an archaeological journey of discovery. The region comprises of Avellino, Benevento, Caserta, Salerno and Naples. Go in search of hidden caves; discover Greek temples or marvel the deserted Roman ruins. The breathtaking beauty of the Amalfi Coast and the Islands of Capri will linger in your memory for a long time. To view some of the finest artistic works, head to Le Marche. The region is abundant with charming towns and villages and is perfect to try the idyllic life. Le Marche also has its share of beautiful palaces and religious monuments. A holiday in Rome is like taking a trip back in time. From fascinating masterpieces in the Vatican Museum to the remnants of the Roman Empire, you’d have lots to see and admire. Situated in the central-western region of Italy, Rome is also its capital city. Some must see sights include The Colosseum, St Peter’s Basilica, The Spanish Steps and The Pantheon. Undoubtedly, Rome will truly enchant! To the west coast of Italy lies Sardinia and Sicily. Unlike Sicily, Sardinia is rarely explored making it all the more reason to visit. Indulge in the delights of authentic Italian food and top it with some of the best wines produced in the region. The largest town of Sardinia and also its capital is Cagliari. To experience the true charm of the Italian countryside, a visit to Tuscany is an absolute must. Stone walls, vanilla coloured villas and cypress trees complete the stunning scenery of Tuscany. It’s perfect for quiet walks and living an idyllic life. Do make it a point to try the gastronomical delights of the region and also learn about its rich history. Umbria is located to the east of Tuscany. The topography is largely mountainous and is abundant with water bodies.

You can take back so many exciting souvenirs of your trip here which range from carnival masks to handmade glass items. Whatever you do, wherever you visit, Venice will leave a lasting impression in your mind.

But, do remember to check the weather of the region you are holidaying to ensure you are prepared with the right clothing.

Getting to Italy

The best part of a holiday to Italy is that there are a number of economical flights available. Travelling in Italy is an enjoyable experience with a host of scooters and cars available on hire. It’s also perfect to set out on a self exploration journey of this fantastic country.

See what one of our travellers had to say about Italy!

Italy is well known for its distinctive wine regions such as Lombardy, The Veneto, Tuscany and Umbria and grows over three hundred grape varieties. Whilst on holiday there recently, my partner and I had the pleasure to become familiar with some of them as we toured and wined and dined across several of the regions. One of our destinations was an 'agriturismo'' farm stay within walking distance of Montefalco, a small and picturesque hill top village in Umbria and part of the Sagrantino wine producing area.

Montefalco is off the main tourist trail, but is well positioned for drives to other well known centres such as Orvieto, Assisi and Perugia. It has an excellent restaurant come bottle shop come deli right on the main piazza and serves delicious Italian meals such as stuffed zucchini flowers - yum. Our agriturismo is a family run working farm growing grapes and olives and has room and villa accommodation with wonderful valley views. It too has an excellent restaurant also run by the family, with dad as chef, mum the waitress and the older father the matre de.

We arrived late one afternoon and reserved a table for our first night there and ordered the degustation dinner. I had noticed that the other dinners all had carafes of wine, which is often the custom in Italy and I asked for the wine list. This flummoxed the matre de somewhat, he indicating that the carafes where the choice, either white or red. Upon asking if he had anything other than the carafes, his dismayed expression fell away and he disappeared for a few minutes, returning with a bottle of 2005 Sagrantino in hand which he promptly opened and poured for tasting. And what a delight it was. Just the bouquet would have been enough. This was a wonderful wine.

As yet there was no mention of price and we thought that this was going to be expensive, but no matter, we were on holiday and settled in to enjoy a delicious dinner accompanied by this outstanding red. During our one week stay there we learned that the wine for the restaurant was produced on the farm and on check out, our 'expensive' bottle of 2005 Sagrantino ; 18 Euro for one of the best wines we had in Italy.

Salute.

Great, comfy apartment in Levanto.

5 of 5
We think Levanto is the best place to stay for a week while visiting the Cinque Terre. Easy train access to all villages. And this apartment is nice and quiet, with everything you need, and within easy driving distance from the railway station and beach. Being presented with a free parking label for the car is pretty cool too! Great place to stay. Thank you Michela!

location, location, location

5 of 5
we stayed a while ago in this extremely well located apartment ; it is the combination of the location- literally in the shadow of the Pantheon- and the quietness ( you actually hear nothing but some birds) that make this place so unique. In a rather shabby little street you get access to the apartment through a beautiful green door with polished copper details. After approx. 60 steps -no there is no elevator- you enter the beautifully decorated apartment that easily sleeps 4 ( two large bedrooms and two rather small but well equipped bathrooms). If you decide not to take your morning coffee in one of the excellent bars in the neighboring streets, you can take advantage of the kitchen and do the coffee routine ( or cook a complete meal if you feel like doing that) yourself. In the adjacent living room , a very large and another large sofa allow you to sit back and relax after another buzzy day in ancient Rome. And if you want, you can even step outside and enjoy the small yet inviting terrace!! candles lights make the romantic picture complete. obviously, there is room for improvement: the floor isn't exactly what you would be looking for , but I understand from the owner that overtime, together with more improvements, this issue will be tackled . So all in all , great experience and a place to come back to.
