Escorted Tours to Italy

Few other countries can compare with the magic of Italy. Whether you’re looking for a two week holiday, a tour or a short city break, Italy combines a stunning blend of all the very best ingredients to make your break a success. Bring together its classical art and music, its iconic architecture and breathtaking scenery, its world-renowned food and wine, a sunny, dry climate and the legendary love of life of its warm and vivacious people, and you have everything you need for a fantastic Italian experience.

Between the two extremes of unspoilt Sicily in the south and the magnificent Lakes and Alps to the north lie a great diversity of landscapes and cuisine, and the cultural footprints of ancient and medieval civilisations. Your holiday, break or tour in Italy can be as varied and endlessly fascinating as the country itself – from the tranquil beauty of Lakes Como, Garda and Maggiore to the tiny cobbled streets of Sorrento, and from the grandeur of the Colosseum in Rome to the fragrant citrus and olive groves of Tuscany. Like countless composers and artists from Verdi and Rossini to Michelangelo and da Vinci, you’ll find yourself inspired at every turn by the charm and romance of Italy. So where will your tour of Italy take you? Maybe you’ll discover the fabulous ancient Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, or the blood-red volcanic rocks of snow-capped Mount Etna. Perhaps you’ll soak in the beauty of the unrivalled Amalfi coast, with its deep red mountains and vivid green pine forests plunging dramatically into the calm blue Mediterranean.

You might prefer to base your Italian holiday in the Lakes, enjoying the gentle waves, mountain breezes and deep blue waters reflecting towering snow-capped peaks. You could be drawn to enchanting Florence, the extraordinary leaning tower of Pisa, Rome’s stunning Sistine Chapel, the exquisite Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Square of Venice, or a short break in historic, fascinating Bologna. Perhaps it’s the shop-appeal of famous labels like Gucci, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. Or maybe you’re most looking forward to savouring the gourmet seafood, fresh vegetables and salads, undiscovered wines, and pasta cooked only as Italians can. Whether you’re planning a full holiday in Italy, a tour, a short break or a city break - and whether your passion is for art and architecture, natural scenery or the world’s best cuisine - you’ll find your appetite for new experiences satisfied with a Riviera Travel experience.
