The unparalleled grandeur of ancient Rome; the artistic innovation of the Renaissance; the effortless style of the modern fashionista; this enchanting nation is a gem with many facets.

When planning a trip to Italy the question will never be, why should I go, but where should I start? A dazzling stone in Europe’s crown, it’s a country of rolling hilly landscapes and other-worldly coastlines.

Then there’s the history, culture, gastronomy and glamour that pervades every part of the country.

The sights don’t get much more dizzying than those along the Amalfi Coast for starters. Just one of the country’s hot picks when it comes to sublimely luxurious resorts, it’s here that the fashionistas head for a spot of sun and sea. But to say that’s all the area offers would be a huge understatement.

Yes, resorts like the elegant Palazzo Avino are the epitome of Italian verve but stay in this region and you’ll be bagging not just some of the best panoramas in Europe, but all the medieval trappings of Ravello where it’s set.

City slickers will be more at home exploring the streets of culturally iconic destinations like Milan and Florence. Florence alone offers a ramble of dreamy cobbled streets lined with charming cafés and boutiques.

Climb to the head-spinning heights of the Duomo steps for wondrous views across the city itself, before heading back to a fabulous bolthole like Belmond Villa San Michele. Or, spend your time hopping from museum to theatre, to restaurant, ebbing away your days amongst the cultural beauty that runs through the city’s veins.

Families looking for an island holiday will find plenty to keep them entertained in Sardinia; with plenty of activities for the whole family, as well as a mass of beaches to relax on, you’ll find something to suit everyone.

Not to be missed in the country’s hit list for top destinations, the Italian Lakes are another firm favourite with glam travellers across the globe. Take a peek at the kind of places you can stay like Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como, and you’ll be immediately won over.

This is the kind of place for water sports fans and outdoorsy types looking to discover some of Italy’s most beautiful scenery. Just like many destinations in the country, you’ll be immersed in a historic setting, with grand, sweeping villas on every horizon, completing the romantic picture with aplomb.

Getting under the skin of Italy and finding some of the most glorious destinations and hotels is certainly no mean feat. Renowned for its glitz and style, Italy is bursting with gorgeous places. Whether you’re looking to unwind in a tranquil retreat with amazing views or dip your toe into the hustle of a cosmopolitan city, it’s all there for the taking.

At the Inspiring Travel Company, we’ve spent time researching handpicking elegant hotels and villas so you can choose from some of the most beautiful resorts on offer. This, along with tailor-made itineraries and tours will give you the freedom to create a dream holiday without the fuss.
