Deciding which Italy holiday package to choose can be difficult – there’s just so much to do. Keen historians will want to start in Rome, where centuries of history sit in between coffee shops and restaurants – the Colosseum and Vatican can’t be missed. Revolutionary art lines the walls of museums in Florence and Venice – wave hello to David in Florence, or gaze over Da Vinci’s Last Supper in Milan.
Head to the coast for beachside bliss – choose between the pebble-lined beaches of Amalfi, or the sandy Puglian perches or hop over to the ‘ball’ of Sicily, where seafood and spritz are best enjoyed by the sea. If your Italy holiday package falls over winter, the northern Alps will have all you need for a spectacular ski escape.
No Italy holiday package would be complete without sampling the local food – from pasta to gelato, focaccia to pizza and everything in between, the entire country is a foodie’s paradise.
Italy has long been the European playground for celebrities, with many opting to soak up summer amongst its villas and estates. In the north, Lake Como is a popular spot, while Capri in the south has welcomed the likes of Kate Moss and Beyoncé over the years.
Like most western European destinations, you can easily plan an Italy holiday by yourself. However, if you don’t want to lift a finger, an Italy holiday package is best – your accommodation and flights will be taken care of, leaving you more time to think about what you’re going to do – and eat!
