Italy's coastal resorts
Surrounded by the Mediterranean, Italy's varied coastline stretches for 7,600km, offering a mixture of beautiful beaches, historic fishing ports and exclusive, picturesque destinations. If you're looking for sandy beaches, the resorts of Rimini, Tropia, Sardinia and Scilla boast unspoilt beaches and a warm climate during the spring and summer months. For a more secluded location, the Medieval port of Positano, the 12th century maritime town of Ravello and the charming hamlet of Sperlonga, once the home of Emperor Tiberius, are some of a host of breath-taking coastal beauty-spots.

Florence and Rome are obvious examples, with a host of world-class art and fascinating architecture to explore. Venice has many galleries offering both traditional and contemporary art exhibitions. Naples is home to the archaeological museum, with its unique collection of high-quality Roman art, historic churches and galleries. Milan too boasts many historic landmarks, such as the Milan Cathedral, the Basilica di Sant Ambrogio Roman church and more than 20 museums.
Luxury hotels in Italy

Among the special features you can expect to enjoy at some of the five-star hotels are diverse activities for guests; beautifully-furnished suites and rooms, with innovative interior design; quality furniture, and a chance to relax in complete privacy.
Luxury holidays in Italy would be incomplete without a visit to some of the world's best restaurants, where the discerning visitor can enjoy sampling high-quality cuisine and excellent customer service. There are many regional variations of cuisine in Italy, but the staple ingredients of pasta, rice, bread and polenta, a side-dish made from corn, are served in a variety of ways, with beans, fish, vegetables, poultry, cheeses, nuts and meat.
It's true that there's a lot of pizza and pasta in Italy. In fact, in Rome, there are even cookery classes for tourists to learn how to make a classic Italian pizza! A traditional meat is thinly-sliced prosciutto pork that's either served with pasta and sauce, or wrapped around melon or cheese for a cold platter. A dining out experience wouldn't be complete without sampling Italian wines such as Amarone, Chianti and Barolo, or specialty foods including buffalo mozzarella, truffles and olives.
