Villas and Apartments in Italy

Why Italy?

Mediterranean coast and alpine ski slopes; ancient history and high design; outstanding cities and pristine countryside: Italy is truly remarkable. Whether you want an adventure holiday, Venetian retreat or non-stop Roman feast, it's impossible to go wrong with Italy.

There's great news for fans of self-catering: rustic Italian villas with terracotta roofs really do exist outside glossy magazines. In the Italian heartlands of Tuscany, you're bound to find your ideal villa rental - perhaps with a pool and country views for good measure? If you want to be closer to the attractions, Italian apartments abound in every city. Winter travellers will even find ski chalets nestled in the Italian Alps.

When in Rome...

Do as the Romans did! It's impossible not to recommend Italy's most famous historic attractions: the Colosseum and the Pantheon. Built between AD 72 and AD 80, the Colosseum is a mighty arena built for gladiatorial contests, executions, plays, hunts and even mock sea battles. Over the millennia, it faced constant threat from earthquakes and stone thieves before being saved by a seven-year restoration from 1993. It's no surprise that the Colosseum is consistently named among the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The Pantheon, one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in existence, is almost as ancient. Completed around 126 AD, it still boasts the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome nearly 2,000 years later. A visit to the Pantheon is a trip back in time.

Serenissima

Why walk between attractions when you can cruise the canals of Venice? The Queen of the Adriatic is a city like no other, practically floating in the heart of the Venetian Lagoon. Grab a gondola - there's no choice but to take to the water.

Saint Mark's Basilica, or Basilica di San Marco to the locals, should be your first stop - preferably early to beat the crowds. A historic symbol of Venetian power, St Mark's has been known as the Church of Gold since its first incarnation in the 11th century. The efficient sightseer will be pleased to find the Doge's Palace right next door.
