Enchanting Italytours and holidays
Enjoy a glass of wine in an idyllic lakefront setting. Gaze out across olive groves and vine-grooved hills. Stroll through arcaded squares capped with extravagant fountains. Dine al fresco on flower-bedecked terraces. This is just a snapshot of what awaits in bella Italia. Our Italy holidays cover ‘the boot’ tip to toe, from the Dolomites down to the southern shore of Sicily.
Take in the beauty of the Italian Lakes or the Amalfi Coast; discover the hidden delights of Sardinia or Puglia; circle Sicily’s sun-drenched shores; or skip between cities, countryside and coast on an all-encompassing grand tour of Italy. Wherever you choose to go, be sure to savour as much of la dolce vita as possible.
Our collection of Italy tour holidays is all about choice. There’s more than a dozen to choose from, with a range of durations and destinations. Each itinerary has been carefully thought through, ensuring you see some of the best places to visit in Italy, whichever part of the country you're exploring.
And, since Italy is such a food-focused country, we try to make sure that you’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy its delicious cuisine and sample some superb Italian wine – on Grand Tour of Italy, for example, you’ll go wine tasting in Tuscany and nibble fresh mozzarella in Paestum.

More information about Italy
Late spring is a wonderful time to visit Italy – the temperatures at this time range from a pleasant 15-20°c with little or no rain. Not only are there fewer crowds, but this is also the time to see flowers and fruit in bloom, and wildlife starting to come out of hibernation.
Even though it’s peak season from June to September, summer months in Italy are glorious – particularly by the coast and on the islands, where there is a refreshing breeze. Sicily is stunning in summer – think glistening blue seas and the fresh fragrance wafting from olive trees.
October is a great time to head to southern Italy – warmth still lingers from the summer months, and the grape harvest is well underway. Further north, it becomes a little chillier – so you may need to bring warmer clothes or wear layers.
Our Italy holidays show you the highlights without any of the hassles. Driving in Italy can be tricky at times, so we’ll take care of it for you. We’ll travel all over, too, to give you a more in-depth experience. Your tour manager will ensure everything runs as it should do, while expert guides will bring sights and cities to life with local insight. We’ll make time to enjoy traditional food and drink, too.
As with all our holidays, our escorted tours of Italy begin the moment you leave home, thanks to our award-winning VIP door-to-door travel service, while our tour managers will be on hand throughout to offer advice and make sure everything runs smoothly. Finally, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that your holiday is safe – we’re ABTA bonded and ATOL protected, and our Protection Promise means you can book with complete confidence.
If there’s one destination you can find lots of crowd-pleasing dishes, it’s Italy. Pizza, pasta, olives, tomatoes, focaccias, an abundance of seafood, gelato, cheeses, cured meats – the list goes on. Oh, and not forgetting the fine wines and excellent coffee. And depending on what region you’re in – local cuisine can differ from city to city and town to town. For instance, in the Italian Lakes, lemons from Lake Garda are some of the best in the world. In Puglia, you must sample taralli – crispy rings of bread dough dipped in olive oil. On the Amalfi Coast, spaghetti with clams is a speciality.
There’s no shortage of food to tantalise your tastebuds in Italy. The problem is being able to try it all…
There are no hard and fast rules about leaving tips in Italy and in many cases, it’s not expected. However, if you’re happy with a service that has been provided to you, then leaving a tip of around 10-20% is a generous gesture and one that will be most appreciated.
Entry requirements to Italy are subject to change. If you’d like to find out the most recent rules we suggest you visit our partner CIBT. They have an accurate tool where you can check the correct information for Italy and the rest of Europe.
