Holidays to Italy

When it comes to taking a holiday in Italy, the first question should be ‘where to begin?’ Italy is packed with attractions, activities, festivals, ancient cities, spectacular views, quaint villages, and beautiful beaches, not to mention the shopping, culture and cuisine. A holiday to Italy will surely provide you with more to do than you have time for in a single trip.

Some highlights that should not be missed during your holidays to Italy are in the historic city of Rome. More than 2,700 years old, Rome is the heart of all things Italian. Florence is the regional capital and offers great insight into the history and culture of the country with one of its finest cathedrals, the mediaeval Duomo. For the fashion seeker and shopper, a visit to Milan should not be missed. Milan is also renowned for its impressive buildings.

Pisa is one of the more famous cities to visit as it is home to the leaning tower. It also has many other historical monuments that are sure to interest visitors. Naples, which is close to Pompeii and Herculaneum, reflects the rich history of the area. Venice is another well-known tourist destination. Founded more than 1,500 years ago, travelling around the 117 island of Venice through waterways and canals is a great way to explore the city.

Bologna is considered one of the most attractive cities in all of Italy with is well-maintained monuments and beautiful city centre. The Amalfi coast is one of the most spectacular highlights of any holiday in Italy. The coastline is unspoilt and the town itself remains a very small and popular resort due to its wonderful beaches.

Sicily’s best-known attraction, Mount Etna, is the tallest mountain on the island at more than 10,000 feet. It also remains one of the most active volcanoes in Europe. The mountain is in the Etna Regional Park, which offers skiing opportunities during the winter and great hiking trails during the summer.

To complete your holidays in Italy, take a tour of one of the many beautiful vineyards. Spend a day strolling through cypress woods, or vine-covered hills where fields of sunflowers can be seen for miles. In the north of Siena is where Chianti can be found. It is one of the famous local wines in the region.

Climate

Even with many regional variations, Italy generally experiences a warm climate with occasional rainfall. Summer days of July and August tend to be quite hot as temperatures peak in the mid 30s C. The winter months of December through to April will see temperatures dip from 10C to 20C.

Currency

For your holidays to Italy, you will need to convert your currency into Euros, which is the local currency in use in Italy.
