The Magic of Italy
If a romantic getaway is on the agenda this year, you can't beat a trip to Italy. Home of gondolas, soul-stirring architecture, mist-shrouded lakes and some of the most dramatic coastlines you've ever seen, summer holidays in Italy is the last word in romance.
Think about it for a moment. You've got the magic of Rome, with its magnificent monuments like the Colosseum and the Pantheon, reminders of a once powerful empire that ruled a vast nation and millions of people. Feel the hairs stand up on the back of your neck as you walk into the eerie stillness of the Colosseum, famous for its deadly gladiatorial matches, or wander amongst the towering ruins of the Forum, and gaze at ancient pillared palaces once home to world-famous rulers.
Away from Rome, there's the glorious city of Florence with its wonderful statues and frescoed churches, and the once-seen-never-forgotten city of Pisa, famous for its iconic leaning tower.
If beaches are more your thing, the Neapolitan Riviera is a magical place full of dramatic cliff tops and beautiful beaches, with more than its fair share of fabulous pizzerias and oh-so tempting designer boutiques. Or you could head to the glorious rolling hillsides and wide open spaces of Tuscany, and live in the lap of luxury in your own private villa. Ahh... Italy really is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Whatever type of Italian getaway you're after, whether it's a low-cost budget break or a no-expense-spared trip of a lifetime, this gorgeous place is happy to oblige. You can book cheap Italy holidays online by searching for late deals, such as those leaving within the next few weeks, or by looking for early bird discounts on next year's holidays.
However you get there, Italy is a magical place that's a cracker of a holiday destination. But be warned, one visit is never enough, and once this lovely spot has got you in its grasp you'll be coming back for more... and more...
