Italian Escapes Worth Shouting About

It’s all about location on a Travelsphere guided holiday

An escorted tour is the perfect way to get out and see Italy. You’ll get to discover all the must-see sights and, when you travel with Travelsphere, you’ll also find itineraries that have been created to make sure you get to experience a few hidden gems too! What puts the icing on the cake is the accommodation – carefully selected to make sure you have somewhere comfortable to relax at the end of each day.

We take a closer look at just a few of the places you could be spending time on a guided holiday to Italy…

1. The Italian Riviera

For a trip to the Italian Riviera, Portofino and the Cinque Terre, Travelsphere have found the perfect hotel – The Grand Hotel, located on the seafront promenade at Forte dei Marmi. The tour includes a visit to the Cinque Terre and a scenic cruise from Rapallo to Portofino, but if you’d prefer to relax back at the hotel, you’ll love that the beach is close by and you can easily get out and explore the beautiful resort.

2. Sardinia’s Emerald Coast

On a tour in Sardinia, where millionaires’ yachts and designer boutiques are the norm, you’ll enjoy a touch of luxury. Stay on one of the most exclusive stretched of coastline in the world, Costa Smeralda, where your home from home, the Club Hotel Baja Sardinia boasts a private bay and beautiful terraces overlooking the sea.

3. Secret Sicily

Known for fortified wine, Marsala is a coastal town with ancient ruins, salt pans and more.  When you take Travelsphere’s Secret Sicily tour, not only will you get to experience the sights of this stunning town as well as more undiscovered treasures of the island, you’ll enjoy two nights at the Hotel Carmine. This historic building has been beautifully decorated to complement its charming exterior. Located the heart of the town, if you want to explore Marsala further… it’s all on your doorstep.

4. A Taste of Medieval Italy

Give your taste buds a thrill with Travelsphere’s A Taste of Medieval Italy tour, where you’ll sample flavours from the region. But that’s not all – you’ll stay at the Albergo dei Medaglioni located in the heart of Correggio. This recently renovated property occupies a beautiful art nouveau building and retains much of its classic charm.

5. Sailing the Aeolian Islands

If you’re looking for something completely different, how about taking an escorted tour that will have you sailing the magical Aeolian Islands on an unforgettable cruise? You would be staying on board a traditional wooden gulet that has been exclusively chartered for Travelsphere customers. This traditional vessel is made entirely of pine and mahogany and, with just seven cabins, offers travellers an ideal smaller-group experience.

Travelsphere operates tours throughout Italy, from the stunning Lake District in the north to the idyllic islands of the south, so there’s something to suit the tastes of every traveller. There are also more than 100 guided holidays to over 60 countries around the world, and with more than 50 years expertise, we know how to get the best out of any destination. Every tour includes flights and accommodation, incredible experiences and opportunities to sample authentic local flavours, and with just 15-35 people or fewer on nearly all tours, you’ll be right at the heart of the adventure, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
