This selection of holidays and tours pays homage to some of Italy's most inspiring facets, visiting some of the country's best-loved destinations and festivals, and its lesser-known cultural treasures.
The influence of Italian culture on the world since the times of the Romans is immeasurable. Luckily for us, we can still see the greatness of Italian culture over the years when we visit, from the archaeological sites dating from Roman times to the great works of art of the Renaissance whether they be encapsulated in architecture, sculpture or painting. We have put together holidays in the footsteps of great ‘artists’ and their patrons who encouraged the amazing flourishing of creativity, garden tours and visits, musical and opera festivals and family visits to great archaeological sites. Italian influence on world culture continues into the present day and is reflected in our ‘fun’ holiday ‘For the love of the automobile’.
These cultural holidays are short breaks, longer holidays or touring holidays of of 3 nights or more and all include flights, hire-car, and hotel stays that we arrange for you, as well as notes and directions about suggested visits and sightseeing in each region. Some of the holidays, for example the garden tours, are for small groups.
