Luxury Italy Holidays 2024/2025

Boasting long stretches of sparkling Mediterranean sea along the Amalfi Coast, charming cities and fabulous food, it’s no surprise that Italy holidays are a favourite with honeymooners and families alike.


If you’re keen to discover this nation’s rich history and culture, a tour of Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, offers many treats for visitors. Meanwhile, for a combination of cosmopolitan café culture and excellent shopping, along with romantic gondola rides and delicious cuisine, Venice, the city of water, cannot fail to capture your imagination. 

If you’re dreaming of an Italy holiday by the sea, the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast stands out for its rugged cliffs, cascades of brightly coloured houses, lemon groves and olive trees on terraced hillsides - all tumbling down to an aquamarine sea. The enchanting island of Sicily is another magical destination, replete with art, history, breathtaking views and, as always on Italy holiday tours, superb food.

So, whether you’re hoping to sink your toes into the sand on a family Italian beach holiday, or would like to try one of our unique tours, our travel experts will create the bespoke holiday you’ve always wanted.

FAQs About Your Luxury Italy Holiday

From the best time to visit to the best Italian holiday destinations, read here for answers to some of your burning Italy holiday questions.

  • When is the best time to go on holiday to Italy?

    Italy is notorious for its gorgeous year-round travel, that’s why we recommend basing the best time to visit Italy not off the weather, but rather on the experiences you want. If you’re looking for city escapes to Rome, Florence, and Venice to soak up the nation’s long history and vibrant culture, we recommend the Spring and Autumn when the cities are quieter, but for iconic Italian beach holidays, it’s all about spending the summer by the coast.

  • Where are the best beach holidays in Italy?

    When it comes to Italian beach holidays, Puglia and Sicily are top of our list. Puglia is ideal for relaxation and perfect for pairing with an Italy road trip and touring around the historical towns of Alberobello, Ostuni, Lecce and Monopoli.

    The southern coast is where Sicily’s beaches make their name. Soak up this treasure trove of history and culture while enjoying the beach. We recommend staying in Noto or Modica (famous for their chocolate), as well as pairing it with a few nights in Taormina upon arrival.

  • Can I book an Italian Lakes holiday?

    Yes! Our travel experts are well-placed to craft your dream Italian lakes holiday. We recommend visiting them from Spring to late Summer.

    Lake Garda is perfect for those who want non-motorised water sports, like kayaking, and enjoy heading out for day hikes in the foothills of the nearby Dolomites – families with teens love this trip. Lake Como is our go-to place for couples. It holds a quieter, more intimate space, boasting gorgeous gardens and historical villas to wander around.

  • Do you offer ski holidays in Italy?

    Yes! We offer Italy ski holidays in the Dolomites, a fantastic area for all travellers. Regardless of your ski competency, there are slopes and activities for everyone. Stay in a rustic refugio on a ski safari or at luxurious ski hotels like the Rosa Alpina or Hotel Tyrol.

  • Where are the best destinations for an Italy honeymoon?

    Depending on the type of honeymoon you’re looking for, there are a few Italy holiday destinations we recommend.

    For a classic combination of countryside and coast, Tuscany and the Amalfi coast offer a romantic combination at a nice balanced cost – great for just after a big wedding. However, more active couples will love Lake Garda and the Dolomites for an intimate dose of stunning lake views and mountain vistas paired with some hiking and biking adventures.

  • What if I want to book an Italy family holiday?

    Italy family holidays are our specialty! From stunning luxury hotels with kids clubs to impeccably curated itineraries brimming with activities to satisfy the whole family, we’re equipped to handle it all.

    We especially love a family holiday to one of Italy’s beaches. Puglia’s a friendly option for all ages, but older families will love exploring Sicily’s craggy rocks off-season.

    You can find out more in our Italy family guide.

  • Where do your luxury Italy holidays fly from?

    We commonly book direct flights from London to Rome, which takes roughly around 2.5 hours, and to other major airports in Italy. However, we can also book from Manchester to Naples, Venice, and Verona, which all have between 2.5 – 3 hours flight time.

  • How much do your luxury Italy holidays cost?

    Our Italy luxury holidays start at around £4,000 per person, but on average sit between £5,000 and £7,000 per person depending on the itinerary. View our sample tour ideas to get an idea of what our luxury holidays to Italy include.
