Italian Culture & History

As the heart of the Roman Empire and the birthplace of the Renaissance, culture vultures and history enthusiasts can walk in the footsteps of ancient Romans, stand in the Colosseum where gladiators once battled, and gaze up at Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.

Throughout the country, there are reminders of the Romans, from the theatre in Taormina, Sicily, and Verona’s amphitheater to Pompeii and Herculaneum which were famously well-preserved after being covered in ash by Mount Vesuvius.

Florence, which gave birth to the Renaissance, is a must for any art enthusiast, with the list of works from iconic artists practically endless, including Donatello, Botticelli, and Michelangelo.

Italy’s Gastronomy & Wine

Italy is also renowned for its delicious cuisine, not to mention its fine wine. Wine is integral to Italian culture, socially, gastronomically, and economically, making it a top spot for wine lovers who want to sample the best in the world and tour picturesque vineyards. Don’t forget you can add a number of different wine tastings to your bespoke Italy tour, ask our travel experts for more details.

There are plenty of Michelin-star musts along with more hidden gems for sampling traditional dishes cooked up by a woman you might secretly wish was your own Italian grandmother. Regional specialties include pasta alla carbonara in Rome, the margherita pizza in Naples, and ribollita in Tuscany, a centuries-old soup made with beans and vegetables, thickened with stale bread. In Puglia, you’ll find plenty of fresh fish and orecchiette, a homemade ear-shaped pasta often served with fresh tomatoes and ricotta cheese.


Italian Landscapes

Beyond the ruins, galleries, museums, dining, and tasting rooms, the landscapes are some of nature’s most impressive masterpieces. The scenery is spectacular, everywhere from enchanting islands and alluring coastlines to mountain ranges that provide postcard-perfect backdrops for sapphire lakes.

In Northern Italy, there are the jagged peaks of the Alps while the south is home to turquoise seas and fiery craters. You could be sailing along the Italian Riviera one day and gliding down powdery slopes the next on your trip to Italy.


Italy Tours FAQs

What is the best time to go to Italy?

With its warm Mediterranean climate, Italy is best enjoyed from March to May and then September to early November. June, July, and August can get very hot, especially in the south and in the big cities like Rome and Florence. It’s also summer vacation for schools across Europe, so places can get very crowded and prices are also a lot higher.

Outside these months, Italy can still be enjoyed, but really only in the cities. More rural destinations like Tuscany, Umbria, and Puglia all but close down. However, on a cold sunny day in Rome or Milan, there’s nothing more quintessentially Italian than throwing on your sunglasses and a big coat and taking a coffee outside in a pretty pavement cafe!

How much is an average vacation to Italy?

This obviously depends on how long you plan to go for and what standard of accommodation you want, but you should expect to pay around $550 per day. This includes all accommodation in a 4 or 5* hotel, meals in good quality restaurants, and private tours.

What is the best way to vacation in Italy?

Even though quite large by European standards, Italy is still relatively small, and getting around is very easy, especially by train, with a network of high-speed lines connecting all the major urban centers within a few hours. This makes the country perfect for a multi-center vacation. We recommend trying to mix a couple of cities like Venice and Florence with a rural location like the Lakes, the Cinque Terre coast, or the rolling hills of Tuscany. 

It should be noted that there are almost no domestic flights within Italy, as the government tries to discourage Italians from taking short-haul flights, but trains are usually the only option – but are often quicker than a flight and of course, take you from city center to city center. 

Where should I travel in Italy for the first time?

Some people call Italy one huge museum. You will find places of interest in every corner from the Dolomites in the north to Sicily in the south. But for a first trip, it’s hard to beat the three cities of Venice, Florence, and Rome with some time in Tuscany too. This gives any traveler a great introduction to Italy, with a heady mix of art, architecture, history, food, and wine. For such a trip we’d recommend about two weeks. 

For those looking to see a different Italy, we recommend replacing Tuscany with Umbria – equally beautiful but a little less known, combined with Bologna instead of Florence.
