A luxury Italian holiday has it all; popes, painters, polenta and political scandals. Having been the starting point for many important worldwide artistic and intellectual movements, it is a haven for culture seekers, particularly art lovers.
Each city has something different to offer from the dramatic Roman ruins and beautiful basilicas in Rome to the canals of Venice. Florence offers a touch of the Renaissance and Baroque artefacts and then there is fashionable and fast-paced Milan. All of this comes with fantastic food, wine and designer shopping.
Then there are the differing regions. Historians will love Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum while romantics will be in their element on the beautiful islands of Capri and Ischia or on the dramatic Amalfi Coast. In the North, Liguria, known as the Italian Riviera, has an extremely attractive stretch of coastline, dotted with tiny medieval villages.
Whether one chooses a resort in Italy or a boutique hotel in Sardinia, Italy and her islands are eternally dressed in a warm, dreamy light, which is tailor-made for romance. La dolce vita indeed.
