Why Visit Italy?

Welcome to Italy, an extraordinary land bursting with timeless art treasures, passionate locals and an incredible array of authentic food and wines to make any foodie or wine lover implode with joy. Vineyard holidays to Italy are a must if you are keen to immerse yourself in a place where winemaking culture is at the heart of life and, as a result, produces some of the best wines in the world. 

If wine is where your heart is, then a visit to Italy should be top of your bucket list! With 116,350 square miles of land, the beauty of this European country, known best for its gelato, coffee, pasta, and wine, is made all the more dramatic and breathtaking by the plethora of mountains, hills, rivers, lakes and valleys which add even more colour to already memorable landscapes. While you should explore the historical cities of Rome, Venice, Pisa and Tuscany, which each promise something special for new and old visitors alike, don't be afraid to dig a little deeper and head off the main tourist routes to experience esteemed wine regions such as Lombardy, Piedmont, Alto-Adige, and Umbria. 

Discover for yourself the most spectacular lakes, pretty coastal towns, stunning mountain valleys and luscious vineyards that Italy has on offer. It is true that once you venture through their dreamy winding streets, sip coffee at the charming cafes, relax along the impressive stretch of Mediterranean coastline and visit both world-renowned and boutique wineries, that a return to this remarkable country is pretty much inevitable.

How long to stay

Italy is a breathtaking country with so much to see and do, which is why we suggest spending up to 10 days to explore the beautiful surroundings. Spend time in Tuscany for exciting wine adventures and book yourself a tour of Florence. Visit the Chianti wine region and ride the iconic Vespa on the scenic roads along the peaceful Tuscan hills. Head over to Umbria and be a winemaker for the day at the Tili estate and learn the secret of Umbrian wines. Fill your itinerary with day trips to the Amalfi Coast, Puglia and Veneto. Take a few days to explore Sicily and discover their epicurean delicacies.
