Italy is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, from the magical canals of Venice and the medieval streets of Florence, to the dramatic beauty of the Amalfi Coast, and much more besides.

What's exciting about holidays to Italy is that you have historical cities sitting beside bustling fashion hubs which, in turn, rub shoulders with the stunning Italian countryside, coastal stretches and mountain ranges. Within two and a half hours of Milan you have the fair cities of Verona and Venice, as well as the staggering beauty of the Italian Lakes.
