Italy Escorted Holidays
Titan's holiday experiences in Italy contrast the country's modern style with the classical natural beauty of the ancient world. One of our flagship tours, 'Charm of the Dolomites' takes passengers on a coach tour of the famous Dolomite mountain range in Italy's north east. Taking in a spectrum of idyllic, centuries-old settlements nestled along narrow mountain roads, the tour winds its way from Rodengo to Ortisei. Amongst a procession of incredible excursions, passengers disembark to explore the alpine Lake Braies, the city of Trento and Bolzano's archaeological museum - home of a revered 5,300 year old, mummified 'Ice Man'. Finally, at Ortisei, passengers have the opportunity to indulge in a quintessential Dolomite experience - a cable-car ride past dramatic mountains peaks and stunning, green alpine meadows.
Italy's south western Amalfi Coast draws visitors from across the world to its collection of captivating archaeological attractions, crystal clear waters and stretches of gorgeous beach. Our exclusive 'Beauty of the Amalfi Coast' holiday brings visitors to the idyllic town of Maiori, a base from which to savour the lively local culture, bathe in the emerald Mediterranean or head out to discover the surrounding coves and hillside vistas. Excursions from picturesque Maoiri include a trip to the Cathedral of Sant Andrea in the town of Amalfi itself and a memorable tour of the ruins of Herculaneum, a stunningly-preserved Roman town buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Those with sea legs may take a boat trip out to the beautiful Isle of Capri - to stroll its bustling harbour, hike panoramic limestone crags and discover spectacular sea views from the foothills of Mount San Michele.
In western Italy, the rolling hills and secluded vineyards of Tuscany present a new collection of unique holiday possibilities. Our dedicated holiday, 'Timeless Tuscany and Elba', includes stays in the historic city of Pisa and the Renaissance-era city of Florence, once home to great masters like Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli, to name a few. Excursions around Tuscany include a tour of the gardens of Villa Garzoni, chianti tasting in the wineries of Montecatini, and a trip to the dramatic hilltop town of San Gimignano. Rounding off the holiday is a stay on the gorgeous island of Elba, surrounded by stunning blue waters and hiding dozens of secluded coves, inlets and beauty spots.
Italy's appeal stretches from north to south and east to west. In the east, visitors recline on the shores of Lake Garda or sail the romantic waterways of Venice. In the south east, Puglia - the sun-drenched 'heel' of Italy, is home to settlements like Lecce, Matera and Grottaglie, each brimming with local character and architectural wonder. Rome is a focus point for many of our most popular tours - a showcase of world famous ancient landmarks, including the Coliseum, the Spanish Steps and St Peter's Basilica. Beyond its well-known historical appeal, Rome is a paradise for shoppers, with some of the most stylish retailers in the world plying their trade in the city.
