Our portfolio of luxury tours also shows our favourite ones in Italy.
We explored regions where beauty may be immediate and striking, but can also rely into small details which cannot be taken for granted.
Magically suspended between the blue sky and the iridescent colored sea, the Amalfi Coast seems to be born from the palette of a painter who wanted to use the warmer color gradients for creating a landscape that enchants the visitor at the first shot, giving thrilling experience and such evocative view to doubt, for a moment, it is real.
Then, Sardinia. Be conscious you will approach to a more different land than other best known Italian places, so you are going to feel an unexpected and enjoyable surprise. Like the majority of the Mediterranean islands, also Sardinia was a crossroads for exchanges and trades, but, differently to others, it has preserved its archaic and mysterious culture until nowadays. You will be impressed by countless things: the untouched Nature, the traditional cuisine, the vestiges of the ancient cultures. The merit of our travel is to show you an ancient Sardinia and a more modern one, to let you admire the artistic beauties, to enjoy the wonderful Sardinian Nature, especially the sea, and to taste local wines and cuisine. We cannot miss an intrusion to the nearest island, Corsica, which in the ancient time was called “Kallíste” (from Greek Καλλίστη), “the most beautiful”.
Apulia or Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot, a charming region that can be visited all year round and is suspended among nature, history, tradition, spirituality and an excellent culinary tradition bristling with local specialities! The history of Apulia is inextricably linked with those of other Mediterranean countries and the invaders who came from afar: the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Normans, Emperor Fredrick II and the Spanish Bourbons. All left their imprint in some tangible way. From Foggia in the north to Bari, the capital, Lecce and the Salento in the south, big towns and small villages own significant attractions and splendid baroque or mediaeval old town centres. Three UNESCO World Heritage Sites can also be found in the region, one shared with the region of Basilicata, the Sassi and the Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera, its extensive cave-dwelling districts, one of the most unique and spectacular places we’ve visited in Italy or anywhere in the world, part of which have now been restored into trendy hotels, restaurants, shops and bars.
Considering its proximity with Sicily and being home of three sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, we have also designed a unsusual journey to Malta. The City of Valletta, the Magalithic Temples and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum (the three UNESCO sites), the Three Cities, the small and wild island of Gozo, not to mention two masterpieces by Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), known as Caravaggio. His ‘Beheading of St. John the Baptist’, a work once described as ‘the painting of the 17th century’ was commissioned for, and is still on display in, the Oratory of the Co-Cathedral of St. John, Valletta. Another of his most famous works, St. Jerome, is also in the cathedral.
Mediterranean excellence to explore!
