The Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano offer bespoke and tailored holidays and honeymoons to Italy. From Lake Como, Lake Garda, and Lake Maggiore, to the small and delicate Lake Orta, embraced by several small towns. Then there is the city of Florence with all roads leading to the Duomo. Florence is one of the great treasures of Europe, the birthplace of the Renaissance, and no city can match the astounding artistic wealth. Step outside the city and you are surrounded by the rolling hills of Tuscany where you will be overwhelmed by the gems just waiting to greet you; Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza, Monteriggioni, Montepulciano, Lucca, Arezzo….The beauty of Umbria where you will find the bustle of Perugia and the silent charm of Assisi. Lazio, where the capital Rome is located. Captured forever in films, Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, or what about Three coins in a fountain. Symbolised by the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Vatican and the never-ending discoveries this city has to offer. Rome is bustling, alive and bursting with treasures that one can find on every street corner. Head to the drama of the Amalfi Coast, one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Picture-postcard, wild, precipitous. Why not combine your visit here to a stopover in Naples. Enjoy the wide expanse of the gulf with its dancing reflections; the distant Monti Lattari rising above a blue haze; the incomparable majesty of Vesuvius across the bay… these are the memories that linger when one thinks of Naples. Enjoy the Italian Riviera, which offers a great diversity of coastline and where visitors are captivated by the area’s fascinating and vivid history, as well as by the beauty of its landscape. Feel the uniqueness which is Sicily. Drenched in history and architecture, wild then cultivated terrain, villages nestled high up in the mountains bathing in the warm sun. Orange and lemon groves, olive trees, vineyards and of course the dominance which is Mount Etna. Discover the Aeolian islands, Stromboli, Panarea, Salina. Apulia, with miles of beaches and beautiful towns and villages. There is Calabria and Sardinia which offers endless horizons, rocky escarpments, mountains, ancient and prehistoric sites, but like Calabria, the sea here is the region’s crowning beauty, simply perfect and ideal locations for a true beach holiday. There is Piedmont and Turin, Emilia Romagna and Bologna with its characteristic arcades and restaurants and full of life and activity. Lombardy and Milan with its Duomo, La Scala Opera House and the Cenacolo di Santa Maria Delle Grazie. For fashion and style this is the place to go. Then there is the Veneto where you will find Venice, Caput Mundi. The true source of sentiment and of artistic enjoyment….We could go on and on as there are just so many places to be explored.
We hope with our site to provide you with inspiration and just show you how much this small country has to offer. We want to provide you with a deeper insight into the peculiarities and idiosyncrasies of a country which is synonymous with art, design, architecture, history, scenery, style, food and drink and true passion.
The Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano is all about creating an Italian Holiday which is unique to you.
