From bustling Rome to cultural Florence and chilled out Tuscany, there’s so many Italian experiences to enjoy that whatever type of holiday you’re looking for, Italy won’t disappoint.

If you’re looking for a faster paced city adventure why not hire a Vespa and zip through the streets of Roma for a thrill, then spend your afternoon ambling through the cobbled streets trying to find your way back.



Head to Sicily to experience one of Italy’s highest volcanoes at Mount Etna. Whilst there in Northern Sicily you can explore some picturesque authentic Italian villages and even witness the volcanic activity of Stromboli. Take a dip in the thermal springs or delight in walking along the black sandy coast and taking in all the dramatic scenery against then backdrop of the beautiful cobalt sea.

Whilst there you can admire the work of the Greek, nomadic and roman civilisations all in one go.
