Italy

Once the centre of the Roman Empire, Italy is home to some of the greatest treasures of the ancient world. An adventure tour here could find you exploring the Colosseum in Rome and the ruins of Pompeii, climbing Mt Vesuvius or Mt Etna, cycling the stunning coast of Sardinia or meandering the canals of Venice.

From classic archaeological sites to nature reserves, fishing villages, secluded islands, towering mountains, and stunning coastal scenery, Italy has it all. Take a wine-tasting tour, sample some traditional Umbrian cuisine, enjoy delicious Sicilian specialities and indulge in a glass of prosecco on the dramatically beautiful Amalfi Coast.
