With no shortage of fascinating history, stunning architecture, white sandy beaches, world-famous food and picturesque views, Italy is an incredible European holiday destination that has something for everyone!
From the romance of Juliet’s house in Verona to the wonder of Lake Como, Italy has a story to tell in every corner. Whether you’re looking for a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy with your family, or a charming romantic setting to explore with that special someone, Italy is home to some of the world’s warmest and most charming people.
Each city offers a unique cultural experience. It’s no wonder so many of the world’s most beloved designers have used Italy’s vibrant architecture as their
geographical muses. Shop til’ you drop on the Golden Quadrilateral in the fashion capital of Milan, or visit the open market of San Lorenzo in Florence, one of the most concentrated art cities in the world, where Guccio Gucci found his success.
Millions visit Italy each year specifically to visit Rome’s magnificent Vatican City, which has a culture all of its own; a must-see for those who appreciate incredible feats of architecture and artistry.
Food and drink in Italy
No trip to Italy is complete without sampling the local cuisine and a glass of locally-produced Italian wine. Pizza lovers will find no shortage of authentic pizzerias all over Italy, particularly in Naples, the birthplace of the world-famous margarita pizza. Pizzeria Gino Sorbillo has been named the best pizza restaurant in the city, so visitors to Naples should seize the opportunity to taste pizza at its finest!
However, there’s so much more to Italian food than pizza. A holiday to Italy offers a chance to sample line-caught seafood, rustic pasta dishes, delicious local cheeses, vibrant salads and an array of mouth-watering meats and roasts. Be sure to save a little room for dessert, however, as Italy is also home to gelato, an unmissable rich ice cream available in a variety of flavours and fillings.
Nightlife in Italy
Italy has a distinctive nightlife that has a unique, unforgettable atmosphere. Milan is the home of many unforgettable nightclubs and bars, and ‘The Hollywood’ is known to be one of the most revered clubs in the world. Spend the rest of your night in Dolce and Gabbana's cocktail bar that has every corner covered in gold!
Florence has a thriving EDM scene and Rome is great for wine bar hopping. If relaxing beach holidays are more your style, walk along the sand to Sicily’s Morgana Beach Bar, where you can sip cocktails watching the sunset.
Travel tips for Italy Holidays
Italy is a beautiful destination all year round. The glorious weather means summer is the most popular time of year, while autumn and spring still offer warm temperatures with fewer crowds.
The currency of Italy is the Euro, and several shops and merchants will accept card payments, however it’s always a good idea to exchange your currency before you arrive.
Many of Italy’s big city tourist attractions and museums also offer free entry at certain times of the week, so save money by planning ahead.
