Florence

Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance and is home to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David and the huge gothic cathedral, the Duomo. Another reason to visit Florence is that it is in the heart of Tuscany – wine country! Experience Florence and all its exquisite beauty, wander the streets of Florence taking in the beautiful buildings and people that pass you by. With fantastic food and wine, you won't be disappointed

Rome
As they say ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ and it would certainly take much longer to explore the capital.  There are so many places to go and sites to see that you could never get bored!  Whether it’s exploring the fascinating Colosseum, walking where Caesar did, seeing the Vatican City, or making a wish at the Trevi Fountain. Being merely a stones throw away from the warm Mediterranean seas that lap the Amalfi coast, Rome is an ideal city for the discerning traveller.

Naples
It's Italy's third-largest city, and its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it a beautiful place to soak up all those Italian vibes. Go for a cultural trip full of castles, churches, art, palaces, food and coffee (of course), and museums. On the outside, Naples may not seem as glamourous as the other cities, but visit and you'll find a diamond in the rough.

Travel Guide

Thinking about a trip to Italy? Take a step back in time while walking the streets of Rome, relive the atmosphere of the mighty Colosseum, behold the statue of David or the gothic Duomo in Florence, cruise the canals of Venice in a gondola, or ascend the leaning tower of Pisa.  Fill yourself to the brim with art and history (and your bodyweight in food and wine), soak up the sun on the Amalfi coast (or any other patch of the 5,275 miles of coastline) or head to the Italian Alps during the ski season.
