Italy

Months we visit: April, May, August, September

It is easy to understand why Verdi once said "You may have the universe if I may have Italy". Home not only to the great treasures of ancient Rome and the Renaissance, Italy is also the birthplace of La Dolce Vita. Add to this the great archaeological treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum and the stunning beauty of the Amalfi Coast, and few would argue with the great composer. Our range of itineraries mean that you can explore all that this magnificent country has to offer: from the canals of Venice to the monumental grandeur of Imperial Rome.
