Multi Centre Holidays in Italy
If you want to enjoy an even better time when you book your holiday in Italy, consider going on a multi-centre break.
Italy is small enough that travelling between two or more locations is easy, and there is so much to see that it would be a shame to miss out.
Here’s a guide to arranging your multi-centre trip to get the most from your holiday in Italy.
Natural Attractions from Mountains to Beaches
The most famous destinations for Italian holidays are often the world-famous cities like Rome, Venice and Florence. However, when booking multicentre holidays in Italy, don’t forget about seeing the wonderful natural attractions while you are here.
One thing Italy is not short of is beaches. You will find beaches along the coasts on east and west, as well as in Sardinia and Sicily, so you will have plenty to choose from. Some that are worth a special mention include:
the long beaches at Alghero in the west of Sardinia;
the beaches of the Amalfi Coast, which may not always be sandy but are certainly picturesque. Visit Spiaggia del Fornillo in Positano for one of the best;
the beaches on Elba, an island in Tuscany, including Forno, La Guardia and Sant’Andrea;
the beaches in the Vendicari Nature Reserve in Sicily.
As well as the beaches, you also have other natural attractions to visit in Italy. For example, you could head to the north of the country to visit the famous lakes. Here you will find Lake Como, Lake Garda, Lake Lugano and more, and on each of them you will be able to stay in tiny picturesque towns and villages that will make a relaxing stay.
And if you fancy exploring the mountainous regions of the country, head to Umbria where you can go hiking in the Apennines and visit picturesque towns like Perugia and Spoleto.
Sample the Food across the Country
One of the delights of staying in more than one location during your Italy holiday is that you can sample the cuisines of different regions. In nearly every town you visit in Italy, you will find that meals are prepared differently to towns just down the road, so travelling around provides you with the perfect opportunity to enjoy this variation.
For example, you might want to head to Sicily to sample the distinctly Arabic flavour of the cuisine and the fine wines such as Marsala.
Or you may want to visit Tuscany, a foodie’s paradise, where you can enjoy natural truffles, porcini mushrooms, extra virgin olive oil and wonderful wines.
How to Get Around
If you decide to visit more than one place, make sure you plan your transport in advance. Fortunately, getting around Italy is easy. The train network is excellent, and you can get from one town to another very easily and travel in comfort.
Alternatively, you could hire a car and go exploring yourself. Or you can always catch an internal flight if the distances are large.
