We here in Travel Department take great pride in the fact that we are known as the 'Italian Specialists'- Italy holds a special place in our hearts, there is something uniquely special about this stunning country. The combination of beautiful scenery, ancient history, delicious food and glorious sunshine make this destination a must visit for any avid traveller or part time holiday maker.

The following is just a small selection of everything we have to Italy.  Click here to see all Holidays to Italy. 

Lake Garda, Venice & Verona 4 Star

Lake Garda straddles three provinces, Verona to the south east, Brescia to the south west and Trento to the north; it’s also Italy’s largest lake. The lake is just over 50km long, 20km wide and would take you about 3 hours to drive around its circumference (160km).   Up until the end of World War 1, the northern part of the lake belonged to Austria and the landscape is arguably more Austrian than Italian.

The Lake Garda region offers a huge variety of activities for holiday makers – the narrow northern corridor is a Mecca for windsurfers and the surrounding dolomites are a perfect getaway for hill walkers, rock climbers and mountain bikers. Riva Del Garda, which will be your home for the duration of your stay, is a very picturesque village and is on the most northern tip of the lake.  Riva has provided our customers with many happy memories for the past 19 years and many people return time and time again.

Classic Tuscany 4 Star

Regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, many famous artists including Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, have called Tuscany home throughout the centuries. The area is not only rich in art and culture but is also world renowned for its medieval hill towns, lush vineyards, olive groves and the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. 

On this 7-night holiday you will visit the beautiful city of Florence with its famous Piazza della Signoria and travel to Lucca, a walled city that was the birthplace of Puccini. You will also visit Siena, a city famous for its art, cuisine, museums and medieval landscape and the small medieval town of San Gimignano. A highlight for many is the trip to Pisa, which is home not only to the tower, but also to some magnificent cathedrals and baroque buildings. Join us on this Italian adventure that has the perfect mix of culture, relaxation and history.

Lake Como, The Swiss Alps & Milan 4 Star

Located in the Italian region of Lombardy and covering an area of 146 square kilometres, Lake Como is Italy’s third largest lake.  The lake is shaped like the letter Y, with all branches being approximately the same length; the main towns are easily reached by hydrofoil, ferry or water taxi, as well as by road.  The Lake is surrounded by lush foliage and dramatic snow covered mountains, and is within easy reach of a handful of popular Alpine towns.

The natural beauty, ornamental gardens, attractive villa facades and tranquil atmosphere of Lake Como have attracted Milanese gentry, artists, Royalty and celebrities for centuries.  Today the lake is a popular location for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. The mild Mediterranean climate is tempered by the calm breeze from the lake during the summer and the temperature rarely falls below 6 degrees in the winter.

Famous for its attractive lakeside villas, the small tourist resort of Tremezzo boasts a classic lakeside promenade and will be your home for 7 nights. Lake Como remains one of our favourite and most popular destinations.
