The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is in spring or late summer, when temperatures are pleasant and humidity levels are low. In July and August the climate is hot and humid, while the area is busy with tourists. The climate in Puglia is generally warm sunny and dry in April/May and again in October with the risk of the odd shower of rain. By June the weather settles in a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings, especially in July and August when it can be a little humid.
This luxurious itinerary takes you across Italy, from the glamorous Amalfi Coast to the beaches of Puglia. Enjoy the contrasts between regions, discovering spectacular scenery and savouring mouth-watering cuisine as you explore southern Italy in style.
Begin your Italian adventure in style in Ravello, perched on the clifftops overlooking the Amalfi Coast. Thanks to its fantastic location, this tranquil town is home to some of the best views along this spectacular stretch of coastline. Spend three nights at Palazzo Avino, exploring all that this charming town has to offer, or venture further afield to discover the bustling towns dotted along the Amalfi Coast. Take a day trip by private boat to the beautiful island of Capri, visit nearby lemon groves and vineyards for limoncello and wine tastings, or just unwind and enjoy the breath-taking views.
Continue east to Italy’s undiscovered Basilicata region, home to a unique landscape of hilltop towns, mountain ranges and verdant forests. Here you’ll spend two nights in the quiet village of Bernalda at the luxurious Palazzo Margherita, owned by renowned director Francis Ford Coppola. Try your hand at cooking traditional Italian pizza or pasta, explore Basilicata’s secluded coastline or head inland to discover the captivating town of Matera. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the world’s oldest continuously-inhabited settlements, and its ancient cave-like dwellings, known as Sassi, are truly fascinating to explore.
Make your way to Italy’s south-east coast for your final stop in charming Puglia. This sun-drenched region is one of Italy’s most picturesque, boasting a number of vineyards, crystal-clear waters and long sandy beaches. Spend four nights at Borgo Egnazia and from this luxurious base explore the highlights of Puglia. Inland, you’ll find charming towns such as Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to traditional, conical, whitewashed trulli houses. To the south, the baroque town of Lecce and the spectacular cuisine and beaches of Salento await.
Explore the culture and history behind the breathtaking town of Matera in Basilicata. From your base at Palazzo Margherita, head out for a day spent discovering the food, frescoes, and fascinating sights of the town.
