Italy Holidays

Far and away, our most popular destination, it’s fair to say that we’re in love with Italy. It's the country to visit if you’re looking for a holiday full of culture, sightseeing, world renowned cuisine and inspiring attractions all year round. We’ve been showing travellers the best of Italy for over 25 years. Whether it’s a city break, opera break, sun holiday or cultural trip, there really is something for everyone and you’ll be sure to find a holiday in Italy to match your individual needs.

Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City, it offers holidaymakers the opportunity to admire a beautiful natural landscape, enjoy delicious cuisine, bask in the sunshine, and experience a unique culture. Italy has a rich and fascinating history, the heart of the Roman empire ruled from here for over 1000s of years and its relics are still present throughout the country. Before the Unification of Italy in 1861, the country consisted of several independent states and to this day when it comes to cuisine, Italy remains in this era as each region has still retained its own individual cuisine and cooking traditions. With many diverse regions offering its own unique attractions, there are plenty of things to do and places to visit in Italy and you can easily find a holiday to suit your interests. 

On our Italy tours, we will take you to the magnificent lakeside of Lake Garda, where you can soak up the relaxing, tranquil atmosphere, visit Limone, Riva del Garda and Malcesine, then go sightseeing in Venice and the UNESCO World Heritage City of Verona. Discover the highlights of Lake Como, including a relaxing boat tour where you’ll discover the town of Bellagio and experience the Bernina Express. Explore Tuscany, with its rolling hills and rustic countryside and visit Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. Enjoy a guided Pompeii tour, drive along one of Europe's most scenic routes on the Amalfi Coast during your Sorrento holiday. Step back in time to learn more about the historic Roman sites and take a trip to the Vatican City to see the Sistine Chapel, one of Michelangelo's most iconic artwork on our Rome holidays. Visit Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, see the famous Mount Etna, unwind in Giardini Naxos and discover the ancient sites of Siracuse and Taormina.

All of our holidays to Italy include flights, with departures from Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, and Bristol, accommodation, transfers, and guided tours with award-winning local guides, so forget the stress of planning and navigating once you get there.

Top Tourist Attractions In Italy

Profile Image

Amalfi Coast

Possibly one of the most scenic drives in Europe, the Amalfi Coast is renowned for its breathtaking scenery and pastel coloured villages, including picture-perfect Positano, perched over the turquoise Mediterranean Sea.

Profile Image

Verona Arena

A Roman Amphitheatre, completed around 30 AD, is the third largest in Italy, after the Colosseum in Rome and the arena at Capua. It measures 139 metres long and 110 metres wide and would seat some 25,000 spectators. It’s also famous for hosting opera performances. 

Profile Image

Trulli Houses

The trulli in Alberobello itself are impressive, but the most beautiful concentration of conical trulli is along a stretch of about 15km on the Alberobello-Martina Franca road. Amid expanses of vineyards, you can see trulli put to all sorts of uses - including as wineries. 

Profile Image

Trevi Fountain

The spectacular Fontana di Trevi was completed by Nicola Salvi in 1762. It is located in the heart of Rome's historic centre in Trevi Square near the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. The story goes if you toss a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder into the fountain, it means you’ll return to the Eternal city!

Profile Image

Duomo in Florence

One of the most recognisable sights of Florence is the beautiful Dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. For 400 years it was the largest dome in the world and to this day is the largest dome made from brick and mortar. You can climb the 463 steps to the top for incredible views of this city.

Profile Image

Taormina Greek Theatre

One of the top historical landmarks of Sicily, this Ancient Greek theatre was built into the hillside around the third century B.C and  offers panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea and Mount Etna. It’s often used for theatre and concert performances.
