6 reasons why we love Italy

6 reasons why we love Italy

A tranquil gondola ride through the streets of Venice; a calming stroll through the Vatican City or simply a glass of sparkling prosecco overlooking the breathtaking Amalfi Coast after a hearty Italian meal… a holiday to Italy promises pure paradise.


We absolutely love everything this stunning country has to offer – check out our top 6 reasons why!

1)    Magical cities

Italy is home to a plethora of beautiful cities. Pisa, Venice, Milan, Florence and of course, Rome, its buzzing capital… you’re spoilt for choice for an incredible city escape here. Rome boasts countless stunning pieces of architecture and ancient ruins – from its spectacular 18th century Trevi Fountain to St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. Of course, a visit to the capital simply has to involve a trip to the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built.

Wherever you stay on your Italy holiday, you’re promised awe-inspiring scenery as you indulge in its rich history and culture. Marvel at the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo) in Florence; discover Italian art in the Pinacoteca di Brera gallery and explore the Pisa Baptistry of St. John in Pisa…

2)    Floating through Venice

A holiday to Venice simply wouldn’t be complete without an idyllic gondola ride through the city’s streets. With most rides lasting around 40 minutes, you can become completely immersed in the beauty of Venice. While slowly drifting through the city can be hugely romantic, this is an experience you’ll never forget, no matter who’s in your travel party!

3)    Delicious delights

The home of pizza, pasta, pesto and prosecco – Italy boasts some of the tastiest dishes (and drinks!) in the world. Dining is considered a fine art here – promising holiday-foodies a spectacular experience in particular! What better feeling is there than sampling an authentic Italian dish under the sun, with prosecco in hand? Meals here promise to be satisfying both in taste and portion-size! For sweet-toothed visitors, it’s impossible to deny a taste of locally produced Italian gelato… what’s your favourite flavour?

4)    The compulsory leaning Pisa-pose  

It’s hard to resist – a comical pose ‘leaning against’ the Leaning Tower of Pisa. As one of Italy’s most popular architectural structures, the tower stands at 60 metres and is hugely impressive to see up close. As for the typical tourist photograph pushing or leaning against the tower – it never gets old!

5)    Love is in the air

For those jetting off for a romantic retreat, Italy is the perfect destination, oozing with romance. Of course, a gondola ride for two is a must, but there’s so much more on offer! Why not book a private and intimate boat tour on Lake Como to catch a stunning sunset on the waters? A balloon ride over Tuscany is sure to impress or for a more low-key experience, why not stroll across the Ponte Sant’Angelo bridge, over the Tiber River, hand-in-hand. Offering delicious cuisine and authentic Italian wine, a date night in Italy is sure to be a success with your other half…

6)    The outstanding Amalfi Coast

Southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast boasts a 50-kilometre stretch of coastline from Sorrento to Salerno; a hotspot for stunning views, scenic hiking routes and fantastic restaurants. Offering gorgeous winding coastal roads leading to enticing, pretty Italian towns and villages, you can spend hours of your holiday along this gorgeous coastline…
