Some clients come to me and say ‘I want to go to Italy but I do not know where”…! They have heard how wonderful it is but do not know where to travel other than the famous spots in Rome and Venice. When travelling, the things you like as a person, do not inherently change.
Choose the things you love as this then will be a real holiday. Catch the train if you are worried about driving in a foreign country. However to visit the country villages a car is somewhat necessary unless you have a lot of spare time to catch the country buses.
If you love the sea and want an apartment high on the cliffs looking out over the islands go to the Amalfi Coast. If you love food and red wine rent a villa in Tuscany or the Valpolicella Wine Region near Verona. If you love art and fine architecture go to Florence. If you enjoy trekking go to the Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast or follow the footsteps of St. Francis in Umbria.
If you love ancient history and old buildings go to Rome; Explore archaeology in Campi Flegrei, High fashion and trendy bars and design furniture – Milan; Skiing – the Dolomite Mountains in February.; Pristine beaches – Puglia.
In Italy there is something for everyone. You only have to ask us!
