  • Ultimate Italy

    We’ve been visiting Italy for decades, but it’s fair to say we’ve never put together an adventure quite like this. From Rome this one glides through Renaissance Florence and the glitzy Riviera, with cooking classes and historical monuments galore along the way.

After cruising around some dazzling isles and visiting some lemon groves, we’ll head back to Rome. But we’re not done yet – not even close. Sicily beckons, with its valleys of ancient archaeological wonders, volcanoes to cycle down, coastal towns to fall in love with and all of the heavenly carbs we can fit in. After a full week on this paradise island, we’ll be head-over-heels for absolutely everything Italian. It’s called Ultimate Italy for a reason…
