Holidays in Italy

Exquisite style and panache comes naturally to Italy, which has long been an innovator in the world of fashion and celebrated globally for its wine and cuisine.

Just some of the highlights include the spectacular coastal resorts of the Amalfi region, famous for its mesmerising mountain views; the beautiful rolling countryside, rustic villages and medieval hilltop towns of Tuscany; Sardinia’s unspoilt golden beach resorts that are playgrounds for the jet set, plus the floating metropolis of Venice that is surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
