Our favourite things to do in Italy
Few European countries mix high culture and easy living quite as seductively as Italy. From Renassiance masterpieces to enchanting islands, the country offers sightseeing and sunshine, and a wealth of outdoor opportunities ...
Well, the quickest way to Italy’s heart is through its wonderful dishes. From the original (and best) pizzas of Naples, to the fresh and delicate seafood of Sardinia via the Bolognese sauces of the north, you’ll find this country really is involved in a passionate love affair with its culinary heritage. And don’t forget Tuscany’s delicious Chianti!
From Romeo and Juliet’s Verona in the north to the hustle and bustle of Naples in the south, Italy’s cities are where the country’s culture erupts to the surface. Palermo, in Sicily, is a vibrant melting pot of disparate cultures, while Trieste, on the Adriatic, feels like you’ve stumbled upon a lost Central European capital.
You only have to scratch the surface to uncover Italy’s proud and perfectly preserved past. The Eternal City of Rome is like some huge open-air museum. Its Palatine Hill region is called "the first nucleus of the Roman Empire” with good reason. But the towers of San Gimignano, the ruins of Pompeii or the Duomo of Florence are all must-see sights.
Find your beach
How do you like your beaches? Wide, flat and sporty like those of the wonderful Adriatic, family-friendly and lined with inviting restaurants, such as those on the Tuscan coast? Or simply breathtaking? There are no shortage of Instagram-ready coves, where azure waters wash against pink sands, on the Italian islands of Sardinia and Elba.
Take to the water
Italy’s a very sporty nation, but it’s not just football that fires up this active country. Italians love nothing more than messing about on the water too. As you will, when you’ve so much coast, and lakeside destinations to take as your jumping off point! Try windsurfing on Lake Garda, scuba diving off Sardinia or swimming in the Adriatic.
Be a castaway
No two Italian islands are the same. Sicily is like another country (and most Sicilians would passionately argue that it is!) with its capital, Palermo a teeming metropolis of art, culture and great food. Elba is as chilled and stylish as you’d hoped for, while Sardinia’s rocky heart reveals a land as timeless as it is captivating. Island life is anything you want it to be in Italy.
