Italy all-inclusive holidays

History, culture, and heritage

Nothing is more Italian than its history, culture, and heritage, including the arts, music, architecture, and traditions. Italy is renowned worldwide for Michelangelo’s David, Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, Botticelli’s Springtime, and countless others. What you will only know as a visitor with a thirst for culture is that these artworks permeate entire streets and squares. Even the hungriest of appetites will be sated thanks to the Italy all-inclusive holidays we offer. Many buildings or settings are themselves artworks, ranging from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto. And let us not forget traditions and folklore. The colours and passion of the Giostra del Saracino (a medieval re-enactment of the Saracen’s Joust). The theatrical arm wrestle of La Partita a Scacchi di Marostica and the Dama Castellana. Or the pomp, ceremony, and unbridled excitement of the Palio held in Siena, a bareback horse race around the main piazza.
History with local experts
Whatever your taste in art, our local experts are ready to mix and match an itinerary to exceed your expectations. Perhaps try a day trip to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice for modern art. Or, keep it classic, and sample some of the numerous Renaissance delights on offer. If you have a plan in mind or need our help to put one together, we provide the palette for you to paint your own masterpiece.
Culture at its best
Why not visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palladian Villas designed by Andrea Palladio during the Renaissance. Live the life of the rich and famous in the most beautiful of stately homes. Beauty that is best seen in person, lived, and breathed, so it resonates to your core. You provide the photo, and we help put you in the frame.
Fascinating heritage
Traditions, and traditional folklore, are as intrinsic to Italian values as the family unit. Resplendent colours and a wide variety of costumes signify not just theatre, but often have historical significance too. Watch and absorb the spectacle, or learn the underlying reasons why it exists from our knowledgeable guides.
