Italy Highlights

The boot that fits, Italy has enough brilliance to satisfy every whim; historic culture, renaissance cities, an unforgettable coastline, and of course, a cuisine so famous even Sofia Loren is overshadowed. In Italy, find what you love…


Italy – the land of renowned renaissance masterpieces, rich gelato, rolling vineyards, and azure waters. Arguably the most infatuating country in Europe, there is something for everyone, from the gastronomic delights in Modena to the dazzling labyrinths of Venice, the striking ruins of Pompeii to the designer storefronts in Milan. Both romantic and family focused, your luxury Italian holiday awaits.


Thanks to the dazzling ceiling frescos at the Vatican and the gaping hole in the Pantheon, Rome doesn’t limit its wonders to eye-level. Be it tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain or standing small underneath the impressive Colosseum, Rome is a fascinating place that has you peering upwards in wonder. Nonetheless, Rome isn’t a place you get lost in the clouds, but in the tales of emperors, gladiators, wealth, and war instead.


Italy is diverse – from the snow-capped peaks of the Alps to the urban metropolis of Milan – there’s no shortage of landscapes to get lost in luxury. Experience the best of Tuscan wine by booking a private tour of exclusive wineries, or set up shop on the island of Capri, where turquoise waters lap onto sun-soaked beaches. The choice is yours.


While Italy doesn’t scream Winter Wonderland, we think it should. Cosy and homey, it’s not just for the skiers – think wellness spas, hot tubs with unbeatable vistas, sauna sessions and Turkish baths. Nights can be filled with horse-drawn carriage rides to charming villages, cluttered with Christmas markets and illuminated castles. It may not be your average Italian holiday, but it will be one that delivers everlasting memories.

Italy is a vast country and we want you to experience it exactly how you’d like. We know a big part of any holiday is where you sleep, be it a romantic villa, luxurious hotel, or quaint bed and breakfast. We have front-row tickets to some of the most iconic resorts, as well as tight-knit relationships with the under-the-radar gems that are far from the tourist trail. We’re confident you’ll stumble upon an accommodation of your liking.


We know a holiday in Tuscany is intrinsically linked with a stay at a villa and quite frankly, we have no problem with that. There are few things more delightful than waking up in effortlessly rustic digs, going for a dip in a stunning infinity pool, cycling through emerald cypress trees and golden rolling hills, and ending the evening at a postcard-worthy wine estate. Just outside of Florence, Villa Cora ticks all of the boxes (and more) for an authentic villa experience.


We’re convinced nowhere does luxury quite like Italy’s great lakes. Lake Como, to be specific, is home to some of the most remarkable hotels we’ve come across in the country. Showcasing anything from floating pools to hill-side tennis courts, on-site galleries to multi-level spas, these palaces (yes, palaces) are the epitome of a luxurious holiday.


Nothing says Dulce Vita like a holiday in the sun. A treasure trove of white-sand beaches and seaside villages, staying at the right accommodations on your Italian getaway makes it all the more magical. With the Adriatic to the right and the Tyrrhenian to the left, we’ve covered all of the bases in discovering the best of the best boltholes, ensuring your sun-soaked holiday is all you’ve dreamt it be. A stay at the dreamy Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea in Taormina is the quintessential luxurious beach-side holiday.
