Along with fantastic food, holidays to Italy serve up gorgeous scenery, impossibly pretty towns and no end of ancient sights.
The good life
Postcard-perfect scenery, gorgeous beaches and cities stacked with big-name sights – long-legged Italy manages to pack a lot into its borders. And no matter which part of the boot you plump for, you’ll find fantastic food, fine wines and a healthy dose of la dolce vita.
Explore the boot
In the north, romantic Venice reigns supreme, while nearby Lido di Jesolo supplies the sands. A bit further south lies Campania, home to the dramatic Amalfi Coast and cliff-hugging towns like Sorrento, Ravello and Positano.
Holidays to Italy aren’t just confined to the mainland, though. At the toe of Italy’s boot is Sicily, which ticks off gorgeous beaches, ancient ruins and friendly resorts. And then there’s Sardinia, with its wild interior and sun-bleached beaches. Olbia's your gateway to the island's most famous stretch of coastline – the 34-mile-long Costa Smeralda.
