The food, the people, the scenery, the culture, the weather... there are so many reasons why holidays in Italy remain so popular.

There’s just something about the sight of those terracotta roofs draped with hot pink bougainvillea, vineyards stretching over sun-baked hills, and al fresco cafes serving up good, homemade food, that sums up everything anyone could want.

Booking a holiday in Italy can simply mean a weekend city break. And why not? Some of the world’s most romantic cities are here and all boast major airports and fast flight times from the UK.

Ask anyone about luxury holidays in Italy and they’ll conjure images of gondola rides in Venice, gelato by the Coliseum in Rome, more art than you can shake a paintbrush at in Florence, and then Milan, that high temple of the fashion world.
