    Top Tips From Our Experts

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Pete Waters

    Cinque Terre in springtime should be near the top of any walker's list. These five villages each have a unique character and hiking between each village is a wonderful way to explore this amazing stretch of coastline.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Lauren McLeod

    The best way to experience the rugged beauty of the Amalfi Coast is with a hire car. The cliff-lined mountain roads offer stunning coastal views whilst you navigate through quaint villages lined with cobbled streets and colourful architechure. Discover idyllic coves and fishing villages with plenty of opportunities of course to stop off en route and enjoy pizza, pasta, wine and all that Italy is famous for.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Kerry Ann Govier

    Visit the mighty Dolomites for spectacular mountain vistas and a slice of Italy which feels very different to the rest of the country. Home to over 1000km of scenic walking trails yet delightfully crowd free, the unique culture of this region - a blend of German and Italian influences, yet very different to both - has been retained. Walking through the hills you could easiliy imagine you have stepped into a set for 'The Sound of Music'!
