Things to do in Italy

  • Culture in Italy – Italy is a cradle of Western civilisation, there’s an incredible variety of interesting places to visit and things to experience; with more UNESCO World Heritage Sites here than any other country. From Florence’s prestigious museums to the numerous Roman and Ancient Greek archaeological sites and countless parish churches boasting Renaissance masterpieces, Italy almost has too much heritage to list.
  • Food and drink in Italy - Italian cuisine hardly needs introduction and nothing beats experiencing it first-hand in Italy. What’s striking is how much it can change from town to town, with a wealth of revered local specialities. Still, there are classic ever-presents, like pizza, gelato, risotto, tiramisu and several varieties of pasta. Italian wine is also renowned, with Chianti from Tuscany being particularly famous. We have an extensive range of villas in Tuscany, so if wine is your thing, then be sure to have a look through the accommodation that we offer here.
  • Beaches in Italy - 246 of Italy’s beaches have achieved Blue Flag status for their cleanliness and facilities. They are well distributed across the peninsula and islands, from Apulia to Liguria and Sicily to Sardinia. The variety is impressive, from rocky coves on the Ionian sea to the vast sweeping beaches by the Tyrrhenian to traditional fishing villages and modern resorts, packed with activities.
  • Outdoor recreation in Italy - Often recognised by its undulating hills, Italy’s rural landscapes are something to behold, and offer the perfect backdrop for walks, horseback riding and bike rides. In the north you’ll encounter spectacular lakes and mountain resorts. There are also 24 national parks in Italy, covering five percent of the country’s total area.
  • Sightseeing - Italian cities are home to some of the world’s most famous sights. You’ve got the Colosseum in Rome, the leaning tower of Pisa, the unmistakeable cathedral complex in Florence and St Mark’s Square in Venice, to name but four. Natural sights include Vesuvius near Naples and the mythical island of Stromboli, off Sicily.

Weather in Italy

Italy has a number of different climate systems, due to the varied topography and distance from far north to far south. In much of the Alpine north there’s a humid subtropical climate, which means relatively high precipitation, warm summers and cool winters. On the highest ground here winters can be severe, with lows dropping to below -10 and consistent snowfall. If you visit one of our Italian villas on the coast you’ll experience a Mediterranean climate, bringing long, warm and dry summers when temperatures reach the high-20s or more, with mild winters. A little way inland from the coast, in most regions, winters and summers are a little cooler due to high ground.

Travelling to Italy

Whether you’re travelling domestically by road or rail, you will find Italy’s transport network to be reliable and well-developed and it will be easy to find whichever of our holiday rentals in Italy you have chosen as your base. There’s a high-speed railway linking most of the larger urban centres north of Naples and Turin, Rome, Milan, Naples, Catania and Genoa all have metro systems. Ferry travel is common between the mainland and islands of Sardinia, Sicily and Capri. If you’re heading to your Italy holiday home from abroad, the entire peninsula and its islands are well-served by international airports, with the main gateways to the country being Rome and Milan. Low-cost airlines offer routes from the UK to every recognised tourism destination.

The owners were the sweetest people to me. I didn't have a car but it's not too far to walk up to the little mini market or down into the town of Cerbaia, although in some places there is no shoulder along the road to walk on. I stayed 10 days and wished for more to explore the back roads and relax into the peacefulness of the property. In 3 months of traveling, this is my favorite. This is Italy.

The house was absolutely perfect, tastefully furnished, very clean and comfortable. We loved the position on a hill slope facing the south, there was a plenty of sun on the terrace all day long so even in March we felt almost like it was summer - but so fresh! And the views were amazing! Massimo (the owner) was very friendly and helpful, thank you very much Massimo! We hope to be back.
