Italy is a country rich in culture, full of history and brimming with authentic outstanding cuisine. For these reasons and many more, including the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in Europe, Italy is an extremely popular holiday destination. Many people are surprised to learn that Italy is a fairly new country, as the states only unified in 1861 under the name Italy. This is how Italy gains its status for being diverse and full of history and culture.
Italy’s showstopping cities include Venice, Florence and Rome. Epicentre of the Roman Empire and birthplace of the Renaissance, this sun-kissed stunning country is bursting with culture: it’s in Italy that you’ll find Michelangelo’s David and Sistine Chapel frescoes, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Primavera, da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and the classic villas of Andrea Palladio. And we haven’t even mentioned the chariot-grooved streets of Pompeii, the Byzantine mosaics of Ravenna, or Giotto’s revolutionary frescoes in Padua. When visiting Italy you will have the chance to visit some spectacular places, we have tours for Pompeii – whether its a half day Pompeii tour or a full day tour including Vesuvius we can you book the perfect trip. Other fantastic tours include a Day trip to Capri, where you’ll visit the fabulous villa of Dr. Axel Munthe, a Swedish doctor whose best selling book ‘Story of San Michele’ tells of his time on Capri; a Venice Walking Tour, with a gondola ride included, and a Florence Day trip, where you will get to visit all the great attractions of Florence.
