Italy is a beautiful country in Europe that seems to have it all – food, beaches, islands, history, glamour and a reputation for romance that’s unparalleled in the rest of the world. Brightsun Travel has a range of exclusive holidays to Italy, from short city weekend breaks, to grand tours through the country’s highlights. Whether it’s a family holiday in the sun, a romantic honeymoon, or a culinary tour to remember, we have got all the bases covered. Let’s start in Italy’s fantastic capital city, Rome, that boasts incredible architecture, art, culture, food and history. The highlights include the ancient ruins of the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the incredible Vatican and Capitoline Museums. And let’s not forget the elegant Museo e Galleria Borghese art gallery, and Rome’s fast-changing contemporary art scene, where you can explore galleries in former breweries. Away from the highlights, Rome’s neighbourhoods are a delight. There’s the traditional neighbourhood of Monteverde where you can sit back and relax in a classic osteria, or head to Trastevere and enjoy a taste of car free life in the capital. At the weekends you can spot Pope Francis at St. Peter’s Basilica, or spend the day in the Roman Forum, a public space full of temples and churches.
Moving out of Rome, Italy offers such diversity of things to do, it’s hard to know where to start. For romance, you can’t beat the city of Venice. The Amalfi Coast is where glamour and beach life combine, and in Naples you can eat the best pizza of your life. Now on to Italy’s islands. In Sardinia you can enjoy pristine beaches, oak forests and incredible food and wine, and in Sicily, you can enjoy ancient cuisine and stunning natural and urban landscapes. Or why not head to the beautiful region of Tuscany and explore art, food and sensational landscapes? Position yourself in its breath-taking capital city, Florence, and you could roam cobbled streets dating back centuries, and explore Italian art at its best, including the world-famous statue, Michelangelo's David. At the weekend, spend your days touring through Italian wine country and taste come of the best wine coming out of Europe.
