Italy

With 20 regions, each with its own dialect, cuisine, history and architecture, Italy is most definitely diverse. One day you could be sipping a full-bodied red in the Tuscan countryside, the next, exploring Roman ruins or the higgledy-piggledy lanes of a tiny borgo (hamlet or village).

And while we’ve all most likely visited Italy at some point, there are still plenty of opportunities to get off the beaten track. Scroll down to read our inspiration guides, and check out our selection of holiday deals here

Weather in Italy

With snow-capped mountains in the north and balmy temperatures in the south, Italy's weather is truly varied. The Alpine climate means that winter can bring cold temperatures in northern cities like Turin, Milan and Verona, while the east and west coasts have a mild, Mediterranean climate. The southern regions have the least rainfall and the most sunshine -- up to 11 hours a day in the summer.
