Luxury Holidays in Italy
Our collection of luxury hotels across Italy is ideal if you're celebrating a honeymoon or special occasion, or you simply want to treat yourself. They all offer exceptional service and first-class facilities, and range from coastal hideaways and countryside retreats to grand lakeside residences and smart city hotels. Luxury doesn't have to end at your hotel, though - we can help make all aspects of your holiday extra-special, with everything from flight upgrades to recommendations for Michelin-star dining at some of the best restaurants in Italy.
Travel in style
Start or end your holiday in style with an upgrade to Club Europe on British Airways, or an overland journey to Italy on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. You can also choose to have private transfers to and from your hotel in a sleek Mercedes.
Venice Simplon-Orient Express
Add a touch of glamour to your journey with an unforgettable trip on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. You can expect luxurious cabins, fine dining and a real sense of occasion - after all, this is one of the most famous rail journeys in the world. You can travel to or from Venice or Verona, with the option of including romantic Paris on your way, too.
Sightsee in style
Our concierges can help you arrange some fantastic sightseeing experiences, from hot air balloon rides over the countryside to private tours of some of Italy's best museums. Here are five of our favourite options.
Private city guide in Venice
The best part of these private tours is that you can design your own itinerary. Have your personal guide take you around the Rialto Market and Santa Croce neighbourhood, or ask them to lead you through the Doge's Palace explaining the building's rich history - it's completely up to you.
Personal cooking class in Tuscany
This fantastic culinary experience at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa starts with the creation of a personalised menu, which you'll devise with the chef. You'll both then pop out to the local market to pick up fresh ingredients, before heading back to the hotel for a one-on-one cooking lesson and a tasting session with local wine.
Tailor-made tour of Rome
You'll glide around Italy's capital in a private Mercedes on this classic city tour, with a guide to lead you around big-name attractions like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. You can also tailor-make your route to include whichever sights you fancy.
Channel Jackie O on the Amalfi Coast
Staff at the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello can arrange a glamorous trip to the private beaches of Conca dei Marini. A convertible Fiat 600 will take you down to Amalfi, where you'll board a traditional gozzo boat and head off to the beaches. Don't forget your picnic, which will be specially prepared by the hotel's chef.
Explore Lake Como on a vintage boat
Add a touch of glamour to your tour of Lake Como with the Grand Hotel Tremezzo's period Venetian motor launch. This shiny mahogany vessel will whisk you across the water to explore grand villas and pretty towns.
