Ciao Bella! Italy is waiting to welcome you with open arms as a long lost member of their family and your next holiday destination. A gregarious and diverse nation it is as famous for its alpine landscapes and stunning beaches as it is for its food and fast cars.
The Eternal City of Rome was once the centre of the Roman Empire and you can still see the remnants of the mighty Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon. Children will be delighted by the wonderfully sculpted Trevi Fountain, where they will be welcome to throw coins, and the seemingly endless Spanish Steps.
For a romantic touch, indulge in an accompanied gondola ride through the maze of canals in the floating city of Venice or marvel at the leaning tower in Pisa. Take in the phenomenon of Pompeii and its amazingly preserved ruins and the incredible architecture and art that defines Florence.
The undisputed home of Italian fashion, Milan, houses such luxury labels as Valentino, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce and Gabbana.
Lake Como, part of the Italian Lake District, offers visitors fresh air, sparkling glacial waters, towering mountains and good weather and is famous for its ancient aristocratic roman villas and, more recently, celebrity spotting.
With few roads accessible by car and the main forms of transportation being either train or your own feet, Cinque Terre is almost a world on its own. These five villages are best known for their stunning beauty and lack of visible modern development and perfect when wishing to get away from it all.
Be you choosing accommodation that are simple and refined or so luxurious they would make a Montague blush you can be assured that regardless of where you stay you will be welcomed with gusto, as only the Italians can do.
