Italy is our home nation, the birthplace of our company and, we think, one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

Home to world-class cities such as Venice, Rome and Florence, home to monuments such as the Coliseum, the Sistine Chapel, birthplace of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Vivaldi and Puccini, home to opera, ice-cream, pasta, and litres of fabulous wine.

Home to the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria, the picturesque ports along the Amalfi coast, to the glamorous island of Capri, the fashion capital that is Milan and the romantic lake district of the north.

Italy, if you have never visited before is a jewel waiting to be revealed - if you are a frequent visitor, you can rediscover favourite places and uncover new destinations, thanks to our deep knowledge of all our Italian ports-of-call.
