Italy holidays are all about embodying ‘la dolce vita’ or ‘the sweet life’. It’s a philosophy Italians have been getting right for generations, as they continually find beauty in the simplest of things. Be it the few fresh ingredients needed to perfect a Margherita pizza or the winning combination of sun, sea and sand lining its coastline. You’ll be in good company on your Italian holiday too, as the birthplace of many great artists – Leonardo and Caravaggio to name just two – there are few parts of the world that can boast such rich culture (Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country on the planet),
romantic architecture and heart-stopping beauty than Italia. From Venice’s gondola-dotted waterways and Tuscany’s painterly landscapes to postcard-worthy Positano and the sought-after style of the Amalfi coast, a visit to Italy is to experience a sensory overload in the best way possible. This is a land that has inspired playwrights, novelists and poets, from Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – brought to life in fair Verona’s pretty streets – to EM Forster’s ‘A Room with a View’, set against the romantic backdrops of Florence and Rome. The Italian beauty is almost as plentiful as the exquisite local cuisine on offer, using recipes handed down through the ages; we’re talking handmade cacio e pepe, wood-fired pizza and the creamiest gelato imaginable. All washed down with an Aperol Spritz or some Italian wine as you toast to a trip well spent.
