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.

First Class!

5 of 5
Club Monteccio is simply idyllic; we enjoy it so much that we have visited several years in a row. It offers beautiful 360 degree views of the Tuscan rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves. The villa with its charming traditional architecture, stunning pool and exceptional facilities (including reliable and fast wifi so my daughter could still get her fix of Netflix!) was perfect for our family's break. The nearby village of Villa a Sesta is gastronomic heaven where you can enjoy Michelin rated food at La Bottega del 30 or chianti classico and bistecca alla fiorentina at Villa di Sotto - it doesn't get much better! Salute!

Fabulous week in Casa Zilli

5 of 5
This is a fantastic place - the chalet is beautiful, well equipped and very clean and homely. Also well positioned, so long as you don't mind the steep climb up out of town, as might be expected in the area. Being just above the town certainly adds to the views. The region is great, lots of opportunities for climbing, cycling, walking etc... The town has everything you might need. We stayed in the second week of September and had every type of weather so would definitely recommend taking warm clothing; we found it much cooler than we had anticipated. That said, the snow definitely added to the photos! Communication with the owners was great - friendly and efficient.
