There’s no denying Italy is one of the most stunning countries in the world. From the historic cities to the mouth-watering cuisine or the charming Italian way of life, Italy is truly a dream destination.

It’s also one of the most popular tourist hotspots, with thousands of people visiting each year.

While most people are swayed towards the ancient empirical city of Rome or the romance of Venice, there’s an abundance of other amazing places that are rarely imprinted by the tourist trail.

This is where Collette changes everything. They’ll guide you through lesser-known destinations with experience and service they’re renowned for.

 

DON’T GET CAUGHT IN A BAD ROME-ANCE!

Go beyond the busy, tourist-filled streets of the major cities and discover Italy from a local’s perspective. In the north, you’ll discover the pristine waters of Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda.

Live out your best fairy-tale life at the sinking Scaliger Castle or explore the fishing villages on Isola dei Pescatori, the most picturesque of the Borromean Islands.

Forget Florence and head for the hills of Tuscany. Time stands still in this part of the world where the cuisine and history collide perfectly. Wander amongst some of Italy’s charming medieval towns, devour locally grown produce and savour wines fit for the gods. Fall in love with Lucca, Tuscany’s best-kept secret, or enjoy a relaxing retreat in Montecatini Terme.

 

Go further than Sorrento and make your way to Sicily, the ‘real Italy’. Be seduced by the dazzling diversity and cultural gems on this fascinating Mediterranean island. The juxtaposition of the sea and volcanic mountains make Sicily ideal for outdoor lovers, whereas the kaleidoscope of culinary influences will leave food-lovers mouth-watering.

Jump on the ferry and pop over to the island paradise of Malta, one of the smallest countries in the world. Cool down in a natural blue grotto or get an intimate look at Mdina, the ‘Silent City’.
