Let Us Plan Your Travel to Italy

A boot-shaped peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea bordering France, Austria, Switzerland, and Slovenia, Italy is home to some of the greatest works of art, architecture, and boasts more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country. 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 amphitheatre 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 is also renowned for its delicious cuisine, not to mention its fine wine. Wine is integral to Italian cultural, socially, gastronomically, and economically, making it a top spot for wine lovers who want to sample of the best in the world and tour picturesque vineyards. 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.

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 the north 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.

Originally from Toronto but now living in Italy, I’ve always been a traveler at heart. When I’m not planning your luxury European trip, you’ll find me hiking the Italian Alps or enjoying a lemon Spritz in Amalfi.
