In general, customers come to us because they want a city break, often with the great Renaissance cities of Rome and Florence in mind, then there are the beach holiday goers who yearn for long sunny days on the coast. There are people who want peace and quiet and endless views of rolling hills in the countryside, then those who want an active holiday in nature where there is a good choice of hiking and biking trails. Finally there are those who dream of lake and mountain landscapes and head to one of Italy's many beautiful lakes. Which one are you?

Would you like a city break in Italy?, if so then consider the classic cities of Rome, Florence and Venice, however many smaller cities such as Lucca and Siena in Tuscany also live up to the needs of city travellers. Then there is Verona, a classic city with a rich history, and Pisa with its famous leaning tower.

Perhaps you would like a beach holiday?, then there are some clear favourites in the north of Italy on the Adriatic coast, on the west coast in Liguria's Italian Riviera, in the south in Calabria and Apulia and on the sunny islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

Maybe you are seeking rural peace and quiet, good food and wine and a beautiful view? Then head to either Tuscany or Piemonte where in addition to having beautiful countryside, they also have many cute villages with an easy going feel and fewer tourists.

Are you the active type? If so you can choose from a long list of places in Italy for an active holiday where there is unspoilt countryside with many wonderful routes for cyclists and hikers to discover, perhaps the Cinque Terre or the Alps and Dolomite mountains?

For many reasons and quite rightfully so, many of our customers return year after year for a holiday in the northern Italian lakes and Lake Garda and Lake Como are the bestsellers. There are so many wonderful places to stay around the lakes and we must not forget the other favourites - Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, and the smaller Lake Orta.
