Marvelling at incredibly well-preserved Baroque architecture, swish boutiques and drinking some of Europe’s best wines in the sun…even in November. South-eastern Sicily has it all.

Luxury Italian holidays... where do we start? The fact that Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country on the planet? That the food is (discuss) tantalisingly close to perfection? That the landscape, from beautiful island beaches to cypress tree-topped hills and soaring mountains, has something for pretty much everyone? Suffice to say this is a country that gives France a run for its money as the perfect all round destination for a tailor made holiday, and as with our Gallic friends, it’s all there on our metaphorical doorstep. Lucky us.
Why we think you’ll love it
- Pizza, pasta, coffee and ice cream. Often imitated, never bettered and rarely sold at such thoroughly reasonable prices. The south of Italy, particularly Puglia and the Campania region (including the Amalfi coast) is perhaps best for the food
- Rome, the "Eternal City". History at every turn, with more jaw-droppingly grandiose architecture than anywhere else so you can inject some culture into your luxury Italian holiday
- The Dolomites - Europe's undiscovered skiing gem. If mind-melting scenery and low-key Michelin-starred eateries on a budget are your thing, you'll love this superb skiing area
