It’s easy to see why Venice has been dubbed the most romantic place on earth – this magical ‘floating city’ is scattered across over 100 small islands in a tranquil lagoon. Stroll through St Mark’s Square, admiring the intricate basilica and Doge’s Palace, before bobbing under Rialto Bridge and passing pastel-coloured palazzi during a gondola ride down the Grand Canal. Then watch the ancient Venetian art of glass-blowing on the island of Murano, before shopping for stunning glass pieces in exclusive jewellery boutiques around the city. Serious shoppers should head west to stylish Milan, known as the fashion capital of the world, where you’ll find major Italian labels including Bottega Veneta, Salvatore Ferragamo and Fendi.
Another popular northern destination is the Italian Lakes, an idyllic region that attracts A-List holidaymakers including George Clooney. The Hollywood heavyweight owns a home in Lake Como, which is set against the mighty backdrop of the Alps and dotted with medieval castles, cathedrals and luxury lakeside villas. Charter a yacht and spend the day out on the tranquil waters or admire the view from the terrace at one of the lakeside restaurants. Other popular lakes include Maggiore and Garda.
Continue south to Florence, the ‘Cradle of the Renaissance’. Famed for its spectacular art and architecture, in this magnificent city you can view endless Renaissance masterpieces at cathedrals, palaces and the acclaimed Uffizi Gallery. Florence is the capital of Tuscany, known for its stunning countryside where you can relax among rolling hills and sun-soaked vineyards. Explore peaceful towns including Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Chianti and Cortona, tasting the region’s famous wines and artisanal cheeses.
East of Tuscany is centrally-located Umbria, an enchanting land of lush green forests and quaint medieval towns. View a rich art collection at the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, go truffle-hunting and dine on delectable local cuisine – the region’s plentiful black truffles feature prominently in delicacies such as truffle scallopine, a dish of sautéed thinly-sliced veal and tagliatelle in truffle sauce. Journey west to the neighbouring Italian Riviera, a breathtaking stretch of coast dotted with luxury resorts and picture-perfect harbours. Highlights include Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure and the scenic villages of Cinq Terre.
Further south, capital city Rome is an unforgettable cultural hotspot of ancient architecture, Michelin-starred restaurants and, of course, Vatican City – the Roman Catholic Church’s city-state headquarters, where you can visit St Peter’s Basilica and view museum masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes and paintings by Van Gogh and Picasso. Elsewhere, admire iconic landmarks including the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain and peruse the designer stores lining Via dei Condotti.
Travel down Italy’s western coast to Naples, whose historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sitting in the shadow of mighty Mount Vesuvius, this ancient city is packed with lavish palaces, castles and churches. From here you can easily explore the Amalfi Coast, a spectacular 50km stretch of coastline dotted with charming towns such as Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Hike through vineyards and lemon groves or head offshore to the glamorous island of Capri, home to some of Italy’s most exclusive hotels and resorts.
Italy’s larger islands are as captivating as its mainland. Sardinia’s secluded coves and white-sand beaches are best visited during low season, when it will feel like you have the whole island to yourself as you charter a yacht along the Costa Smeralda and explore the tiny offshore islands of La Maddalena. Meanwhile the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily, is home to dramatic Mount Etna and a stylish capital, Palermo, where you’ll find great architecture and sensational regional cuisine.
