About Italy

Italy is a tempting mix of rich culture, exquisite cuisine, and spectacular scenery. Entice your senses with world class pizzas, astounding architecture, fashion conscious locals and the delicious fresh coffee that Italy is famous for.

With the rolling hills of Campania’s vineyards, the breathtaking architecture of Sicily, and the stunning coves of turquoise blue and glittering white sandy beaches dotted around the coastal shores of Sardinia, there’s a holiday destination for everyone in Italy.

When to go to Italy

Italy has gloriously warm summers with the hottest temperatures being in August, and it’s generally warm from May to September, too. If you enjoy the sunshine but don’t want to go during the hottest period then April to June and September to October are the perfect times for you to go. The climate varies quite a lot throughout the country, with weather being warmer the further south you go.

Cultural highlights

Italy is blessed with many fascinating landmarks and interesting places to visit. For a piece of history, head over to the Valley of Temples, or Valle Dei Templi, in Sicily, a prime example of Ancient Greek art and design. Walk past detailed sculptures of historical and mythical figures, and gaze at the towering stone columns.

Take a glimpse into a Roman town that existed over 2,000 years ago. The ruins of Pompeii near Naples were covered by ash following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, leaving behind a fascinating, well-preserved archaeological site to explore.

Pisa is also worth a visit if you want to see the extremely famous leaning tower of Pisa. It is an impressive and remarkable example of Roman architecture as well as an iconic photograph opportunity.

Not to be missed

  • Unwind with a trip to the Boboli Gardens, in Florence. There you can take in the scent of the beautiful flowers, and admire the sculptures and water fountains scattered throughout the park.
  • See the stunning city of Florence and visit the many sites including the Duomo and the Galleria degli Uffizi.
  • Go shopping in Le Marche; explore the local markets for food and trinkets, or head to the Main Square in Ascoli Piceno, for a range of locally handcrafted products you can take home as souvenirs.
  • If you’re looking for the perfect day out, then make your way to Gurrida Lake in Sicily. Surrounded by a mountainous backdrop and lush green forests, it’s a great place for a hike, or a summer picnic.
  • For a truly beautiful natural sight, make the journey to Cascata delle Marmore, or Marmore Falls in Umbria. Watch as the water rushes through the emerald trees, and cascades into the pool of water – truly breathtaking.
