Cultural Holidays in Italy

Cultural holidays in Italy

Whether you’re soaking up the rays on an Amalfi Coast holiday, discovering Baroque towns and ancient Greek ruins a stone throws away from Sicily or wandering through the fairytale conical houses in Puglia, you can’t deny the sheer beauty of Italy’s landscapes and architecture. Our cultural holidays in Italy bring you one step closer to its delicious local cuisine, fascinating history and hidden gems.

If you came to Italy to admire the historical sites, why not take an enchanting journey through Puglia: Discover the Heel of Italy. On this trip, we take you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Matera, the curious white-tipped houses of Puglia and the dazzling white city of Ostuni for an adventure you won’t forget.

Should you want to uncover more of Italy’s spectacular history, our Treasures of Sicily trip doesn’t disappoint. With an excursion to Mt Etna, and visits to the incredible towns of Agrigento, Selinunte and Syracuse, you will encounter cinematic piazzas, archaeological parks and cathedrals that hold elaborate collections of Byzantine mosaics.

One of the best ways to experience our cultural holidays in Italy is through trying local delights. If you want to indulge your sweet tooth, our trip to Sicily Food Adventure takes you to the very heart of its world-famous cuisine, from their velvety cannoli to mouth-watering gelatos. You can also enjoy an immersive cooking class with a local chef in Trapani, so you can take the sweet taste of “La Dolce Vita” home with you.
