We just can’t get enough of holidays in Italy – the country really does have it all. The north has some of the best scenery. Scale the Dolomites or sit back and relax on the lakes. Explore the coast in Liguria or Sorrento where some of the best views are found at the top of the cliffs. Foodies should head for Sicily or Puglia and fill up on authentic street food and big plates of pasta. Cities make a great add on to your holiday too – extend your stay a couple of days and explore some of the greatest art and culture in the world.
What to see on an Italy holiday
An Italy holiday can be as varied as you want. We love exploring the outdoors and mountain views in the Dolomites. Selva is one of the best resorts for this and Merano's a hidden gem with some of the best food and wine in Italy. Lake Garda is Italy's largest lake and there's plenty to see and do here, it's perfect if you're after an active holiday with lots of sightseeing.
The most iconic sights are found in the cities. Grab your camera and head to Rome's Colosseum, get lost in Venice's canals and spend some time in Florence's galleries. It's really easy to travel by train too, so you can see them all in one holiday.
There are some challenging walks along the coastline on the Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre. Don't forget to reward yourself with a long lunch and glass of wine afterwards. Or you can hire a car and drive past olive groves in Puglia - stopping off at Alberobello to see the trulli, and Sicily where Mount Etna dominates the skyline in Taormina.
