Discover the best of Puglia this summer

Italy is a fascinating country with so much to offer: beautiful scenery, art, history, food, wine and culture.

It’s a shame not to see as much as you can while you’re there, but many people don’t enjoy whistle-stop tours, with all the packing and unpacking that they bring. With this in mind, the new Explorer Holidays provided by specialist tour operator, Inghams Italy, are based in one or two hand-picked hotels for their duration and give you the chance to get to know a region of Italy in depth, whilst still leaving you time to relax and unwind. They include 7 night accommodation on a half board basis (with flights and transfers), as well as all excursions, entrance fees and local guides to make sure you get the most out of your visit, and throughout you have the assistance of an expert Inghams Explorer Guide.  Each holiday is limited to a select group of just 25 participants, meaning you have more personal attention and the whole experience is more comfortable.

Inghams Italy have a great range of Explorer Holidays on offer with departures in the best months of the year for visiting Italy – take a look at some of our favourites.
