Italy Experiences

  • The Italians are passionate people. They are passionate about where they live and what they eat. Food is a big part of Italian culture and you will find fantastic restaurants wherever you go. Each region has its own cuisine and it’s likely that you will not be able to find local speciality dishes anywhere else in Italy – or the world!
  • Italy is the epicentre of the Roman Empire and is home to more Unesco World Heritage cultural sites than any other country in the world. Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and David, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Primavera, and da Vinci’s The Last Supper are just some of the cultural treasures that await you.
  • Bordering Switzerland means the north of Italy is covered in snowy Alps and glacial lakes, offering fantastic winter sport activities. Contrast this to the south, where you can dive in the coral studded Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the Campania region.
  • If you are history hungry, then head to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Sitting in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius these two towns were miraculously preserved, encased in an ash shell that froze a single, traumatic moment in time when the volcano erupted in 79AD.
  • 400 bridges and 150 canals create a beautiful maze around the extraordinary town that is Venice. Cruise around the canals on a private gondola, snack on cicheti or tour the Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco.
