Such is the depth of Italy’s cultural treasures, even the most modest church façade can hide work by the likes of Michelangelo. Our Italy specialists draw on their deep-seated connections with the country to help you unravel Italy’s well-known highlights, from Rome's ancient Colosseum to the untouched medieval towns of Tuscany and the lagoon city of Venice.

They also use their first-hand knowledge to show you Italy's lesser-known ways of life. You might find yourself truffle hunting with an expert and his dog in Tuscany’s hillsides, sampling street food in Palermo, Sicily, exploring the characterful villages of Puglia, or hiking through terraces of vines to reach the tiny villages of Liguria’s Cinque Terre. Whether you explore great cities, alpine lakes, or Roman relics, our specialists can help you unlock Italy’s hidden secrets, from exploring Pompeii without the crowds to uncovering the many delicacies of Italy’s gastronomic capital, Bologna.

There are so many superb places to go it can be difficult to know where to begin, but our specialists can help you create an itinerary that reflects your interests, takes in the main sights and reveals some of Italy's lesser-known charms.

When you travel to Italy with us, we’ll help you uncover the main sights, from Rome's Colosseum to Tuscany and the lagoon city of Venice, in another light.

    Renowned as one of the most stylish cities in the world, Milan is a shopper’s paradise. The city has been a fashion powerhouse since the Middle Ages, although the modern-day fashion industry only truly took off here in the late 19th century.
