Italy has a romantic charm that never fails to attract holiday-makers. A culturally rich destination of art, architecture and fine dining, there is also an abundance of choice for families and beach lovers. Lose yourself in the many and varied attractions and scenery of this incomparably beautiful country.

Situated in the north-east of Italy, Lake Garda is a popular holiday spot each year. The beautiful scenery of the lake, quaint lake-side towns, quality bars and restaurants make it the perfect holiday destination.

Many of the towns on the lake are family friendly and offer great facilities for families of all ages. There are plenty of things to do and see in Lake Garda; treat yourself to some rest and relaxation, head to nearby theme parks, animal parks, rent a bike and cycle around the beautiful scenery and visit the other nearby towns and villages, some of which have markets. Night life in Lake Garda is atmospheric and great for families, there are plenty of places to dine and bars and pubs with evening entertainment for all the family.

Southwest Italy is Sorrento, a charming town full of cobblestone streets, colourful flowers, stunning landscape and picturesque views of Mount Vesuvius and Naples. Many people use Sorrento as a base to exploring nearby tourist attractions such as Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, the island of Capri and Naples.

Pompeii is about 40 minutes away from Sorrento by train, it is a must see when you are in this part of the world. Life in the town – once a popular holiday resort with the Romans – was stopped in its tracks when Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying everything – and everyone – in molten lava. Two thousand years later, you can see some of Pompeii’s citizens, frozen in time where they died.
