With so many famous beach resorts, you might think Italy is almost too obvious a destination for a summer holiday. Think again! From the exclusive Costa Smeralda in Sardinia, to the charms of Rimini and the beautifully preserved coasts of the UNESCO-protected Aeolian Islands, there is bound to be an Italian beach just for you. Italy Summer holidays are also about exploring the country’s many stunning national parks. The Dolomites are positively gorgeous in summer and host a vast range of sports from hiking and riding to cycling and Via Ferreta climbing routes. For a romantic, Belle Epoque-like escape,
shore up on peaceful Lake Maggiore, or - if you're willing to brave the heat - you’ll find Italy’s cities blissfully deserted in August; perfect for submersing yourself in culture.

From start to finish the trip was exceptional and Harriet and the staff at Original Travel had everything laid out perfectly in advance so traveling from city to city was seamless. In addition the services provided by your concierges in each area were outstanding. The app is great and we used it constantly to keep up with our daily schedule. Between the tours and transfers between cities the app was an invaluable resource.
