Stylish. Seductive. Timeless. Italy’s La Dolce Vita is the high life distilled.
20 regions as different as 20 countries – Italy offers a lifetime’s exploration. A balmy Mediterranean climate, convivial people, sumptuous landscapes, and millennia of art and culture place Italy firmly at the top of any savvy traveller’s wish-list. And that’s before you even mention the food…
Explore the Amalfi Coast’s bohemian towns by classic sports car; let your charismatic guide bring alive the days of the Roman Empire while you investigate Pompeii; discover the striking coastlines of the Aeolian islands on a gulet-style tall ship; take a hot-air balloon over the ancient village towns and countryside of the rolling Chianti hills; discover Sardinia’s pristine beaches and glamorous nightlife aboard your private superyacht; wander between the villas and gardens on the shores of Lake Como; lose yourself in the mystique of masquerade in Venice; experience a behind-closed-doors visit to St. Marks or the Sistine Chapel; enjoy a private visit to the most prestigious Murano glass factories; feast on knödel in a snow-covered Alto Adige chalet.
Where to Stay
Traditional Tuscan farmhouses; hilltop Castello estates; lakefront Como villas; opulent Venetian palazzos; private Roman residences; stunning coastal villas.
When to Go
Ski in February, see the cities in the spring, and hit the shores in early summer (to keep one step ahead of the hordes).
