Holiday in Italy: discover the Italian regions

I was strolling down the streets of a small town in southern Italy. My mind had wandered off when a scooter suddenly appeared out of nowhere and barely missed me as it drove by. The girl on the scooter raised her hand apologetically and I gestured back that it was fine. How could I possibly get upset while surrounded by such beauty during my holiday in Italy? The land of delicious wines, impressive art and gorgeous authentic cities. Surrounded by Tuscan vineyards, I was on top of the world. Italian regions such as Puglia and Lazio are some of my absolute favourites. Umbria is an undiscovered area that stole my heart. And whenever I'm on the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, I live like a true local. No trip to Italy will be long enough to see it all. A perfect mix of sun, culture and delicious food.

Small-scale hotels & apartments in Italy

What I love most about Italy is that you'll find places to stay that don’t exist anywhere else. I once stayed at a fattoria, which is like living with a farmer. A unique experience, just like a masseria or tenuta. And a trip to Italy isn’t complete without experiencing a farm holiday at an agriturismo. These are great places to stay with children or for a family holiday with something fun for everyone. My most remarkable stay was in a trulli. You'll find these unique cottages in Puglia. And these typical locations in Italy were often converted to a charming Bed and Breakfast. One thing they all have in common: a sweet owner who will give you a warm welcome and the best outing recommendations.

Flying holiday including a rental car to Italy

Good to know: my flying holidays to Italy always include a rental car and a place to stay. Once you’ve arrived at your fly & drive holiday destination, you'll be able to explore the area by car.

Car holiday to Italy

Another option is to book a car holiday to Italy. I’ll make sure the Italian owner knows you’re coming and you get to drive there in your own car. Or some other means of transportation, of course. It’s up to you!
