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.

This year we spent a week in this great apartment near San Gimignano and a week on the cost (Calabrone). This apartment was definitively the best we have had during all stays - great compromise between Tuscany tradition and the convenient, new equipment. Very well equipped kitchen, bathroom (including washing machine), no surprises versus apartment description at all. Superb pool and surrounding area - even if on the pictures pool looks a bit bigger, it very nice - you can sit on the sun-chairs directly next to pool or lay on the well managed grass area. The view from the pool is marvelous - you can delight Tuscany hills and Volterra. You also have a small but nice private garden with a lot a plants. Ideal place to have an evening wine! If I would have to find any cons (still, with overall apartment evaluation 5/5) I could say that the last 2 km of the road is quite dusty (gravel road), but that's the price you pay if want to be a bit aside - usually such apartments have last 1-2km of the gravel road. Overall we really loved the apartment and can definitively recommend it. Thanks to Daniele and Fabio for all support during the stay.

Attention to detail makes it ideal for all ages, and great use was made of the pool and table tennis. The location is very close to little bars and the shops cater for everyday needs. We have yet to hear any voices other than Italian , perfect! The large pool is well used and there is space for large families. We usually visit Lake Bolsena on market day, combining some shopping with a change of scene by the beach. We highly recommend it, but you do have to book early!.,

It was clean, modern and beautifully furnished and had everything we could possibly need. In an ideal location in Florence - nicely tucked away in quiet back-streets but very close to many of the key sights. This apartment was the best we have stayed in throughout our Italian travels and I would highly recommend it. Simone was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel very welcome.
