Introducing our new website - Italian Short Breaks

By Abigail Collins | Italian Short Breaks | Posted 07 May 2013



The new Italian Short Breaks website has come about directly as a result of our clients asking if we could add extra destinations onto their short breaks in Italy, so as to enjoy more of what Italy has to offer.

The idea is to combine great Italian Events with seeing one or more of Italy's beautiful cities.

The Palio in Siena, Opera in Verona,  Milan or Venice for instance can be seamlessly combined with seeing any number of other places in Italy. From Rome to Florence, The Amalfi Coast to Lake Maggiore we have a whole raft of  suggested 2 to 10 night breaks. You can enjoy Italy at whatever pace you desire.

We are delighted with  the huge range of products that we have, but if the perfect one is not here  for you then do let us know and it is likely we will be able to tailormake it for you.  We also already have plans to extend the range, but wanted to share with you the great Italian holidays and Short Breaks available now.



Take some time to browse through the site.

 We have four main areas:

  * Italy Special Events

These are a range of one destination breaks in Italy, most of which focus on one off events - ideal for 2-3 nights away as a short weekend break to Italy. Our most popular include Verona Opera, Venice Carnival Masked Ball, Siena Palio. In most cases these trips focus on a unique event that is happening at the time. We can of course organise a break to this destination at another time without the specific event., with our most popular being a visit to Venice, Sorrento or Rome.

  * Italy Weekend Breaks

The Italian City Breaks combine two locations in Italy, giving you the opportunity to experience at least one Italian event and another location giving you a relaxed Short Break in Italy. These breaks do not have to combine the specific event on those specific dates; Its just our recommendation as to how to make the most out of your trip and how to experience something a bit different. These range from 4-7 nights, but can be extended if required. Our most popular to date is the Verona Opera combined with the Siena Palio. Italy Weekend Breaks

  * Italy Luxury Holidays

These are a range of Italian holidays for people with a bit more time looking to explore more in their summer Italian holiday, visiting 3-4 places. If you like, you could think of these as the mini modern Grand Tour in 9-10 days. Of course if you have time for a longer Grand Tour we would be happy to help piece it together for you, advising on the most efficient route and the best form of transport.
  * Italy Opera Breaks

Italy is flush with wonderful Opera and this section offers up the best that Italy as to offer. La Fenice Venice Opera House, La Scala Opera House and of course the Roman Arena in Verona all offer up spectacular perfomances. Combine as many, or as few, together as you wish.

We have an unrivalled ability to create tailor made journeys through Italy giving you exclusive access to some truly once in a lifetime experiences and events.
