Italy Holidays

The fascinating history of Italy can cast you back to the days of the mighty Roman Empire, or the artistic revolution of the Renaissance. It’s somewhat appropriate that the country known for its geographic shape as “The Boot” is also hugely influential in the world of fashion. For beaches, cities, countryside and history, few countries offer such a variety of wonders so close to each other as Italy.


Things to do in Italy

  • There is so much to do in Italy, the best option can often be to rent a car and travel. One way to do this is choose a central city as your base, and choose what places you want to see the most. Public transport is good in Italy, so that’s always another option.
  • Visit the ancient city of Rome. Few cities have remained as influential throughout history as “The Eternal City”. Sights like the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain shouldn’t be missed, not to mention the Vatican, a nation in its own right.
  • When visiting the south of Italy, destinations like Puglia and Sorrento come highly recommended. Just a couple of hours drive apart, you can choose from picturesque beaches and islands or historical gems like Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius.
  • For a city break that can include a bit of countryside touring, Venice and Milan are great options. Either city is within driving distance of the famous Northern Italian Lakes, which are definitely worth a trip. Lakes Garda and Como would be our choices to visit.
  • For something a little different, we recommend doing the Godfather Tour in Sicily. This isn’t simply a way to see where the classic movie was filmed, you’ll also take in some of Sicily’s wonderful scenery.

Best time to visit

Typically the busiest and hottest months in Italy are July and August. Depending on where you want to go, it would be best to avoid these times. Touring the outdoors in temperatures over 25°C can be difficult, so May, June or September should be ideal, with temperatures slightly cooler. The most popular spots will be a good deal quieter too, so you would avoid the crowds.
