Italy Holidays

GENERAL

Overview

When you think of Italy, what do picture? Mounds of delicious, freshly made pasta sprinkled with aged parmesan and dotted with hand-picked herbs? Maybe stretches of bright green countryside that spreads out as far the eye can see? Perhaps it's zipping around narrow cobbled streets as you try your hand at riding a Vespa - or is it all of the above?
A holiday in Italy is one that is filled with endless possibilities. Why not eat your way across the country as you dine on authentic cuisine, sip full-bodied wines and eat your favourite gelato? When you've sampled the local cuisine, you could take a short stroll to the warm Mediterranean waters of the pristine coastline - imagine a wonderful late lunch followed by a gorgeous sunset. Whatever your holiday desires might be, a trip to Italy is sure to tick every box! Be it adventure, relaxation or romance, Direct Holidays have a number of self catering and All Inclusive that you've always wanted.
