Culinary trips

From the land of the pizza, pasta, gelato, ciabatta and many more, no country's food excites the visitor's imagination more than Italy. Each region has its own specialities that open new culinary experiences to even the biggest foody. Any resident of Naples will tell you that you haven't eaten pizza until you have had it stone-baked in a Neapolitan oven. Try it and you won't disagree.

Italy varies hugely in climate from the Alps region to its north to the Arab-infused cuisine of its south and especially Sicily. Bordering Germany, Switzerland and France, Italy is blessed with cheesemakers. Tuck in to freshly-made, world-renowned cheeses from Parmesan to Gorgonzola and sample regional gems such as the nutty Asiago or creamy Burrata.

Cruising around Lake Guarda, work up a thirst at the Veronese vineyards or grappa in the picturesque Bassano del Grappa. Take lessons with a Tuscan chef, exploring the rolling hills of the atmospheric Tuscan countryside and olive groves where your food is grown. You may find yourself planning your day around your food and not vice versa. Incredible historic cities

Incredible historic cities

No single country packs more beautifully-preserved historical sites than Italy. Italian cities and towns are some of Europe's finest, showcasing the country's rich culture and heritage, from the volcanic ruins of Pompeii to the unique canal-lined splendour of Venice. Every brick has a story in Rome, from empire building to the Vatican home of the Catholic church to the nation's modern capital.

A relatively small province of Tuscany offers so much to explore with sumptuous food, word class art and history. Florence, the centre of the Renaissance and an art lovers mecca, is a short journey to Pisa and it's iconic leaning tower. Moving just south, the charming streets and piazzas of medieval Siena or the towering architecture of San Gimignano, make the reasons to visit Italy really seem endless.

A rich culture

You will find warm and gregarious people who are fiercely proud of their city, region and country. Locals are very happy to show off and share their culture and celebrated traditions with visitors. Travellers don't need to choose food over sightseeing or culture over nature – you can have it all in your trip to Italy.
