Do you need inspiration for your Italian holiday?  Do you wish to experience something different? Do you want to discover new destinations and be introduced to a range of new activities? Are you after the romantic, the adventurous? Is it a family holiday you are after, or you just need to get away? Well now is your chance.
The Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano create exquisitely designed and bespoke Italian holidays for you to enjoy. Our Italian holidays range from the luxurious and the unconventional to the flamboyant and the unique, from the simple to the wonderfully authentic. We guide you through the country and introduce you to Italian cities and off the beaten track locations. We have scoured the hilltop towns for gems for you to experience and enjoy. Walk the cobbled coastal villages, discover family-run "green" B&Bs, feel the tranquillity of Umbria, the majesty of the Alps and the Dolomites, the landscapes of Basilicata and the beaches of Calabria. Enjoy the charm of Apulia and Sicily, the treasures of the Abruzzo and Le Marche.
We can assist you with everything you need, from multi-centre holidays to escorted tours, opera and musical events to rail holidays, not forgetting the luxury of the Orient Express. From the small and boutique hotels and apartments in the main Italian cities to family holidays and luxury villas and farmhouses. We know Italy well and want to enhance your experience so that you get to enjoy a holiday designed just for you. Our holidays do not have to be expensive, it is all down to what you are looking for and the budget you have available. If we are unable to meet your requirements, we will tell you straight away.
At The Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano, our job is to take care of your Italian holiday and travel needs, but that is not all we do. When we say "take care", we mean exactly that. Our consultants are all Italian and know the country inside out and will help you create the perfect experience.  From discovering the art and culture of Italy to touring off the beaten track and unearthing inaccessible villages and exploring new gems while savouring legendary wines.  Why not tell us what you want from a skiing holiday. The winter sports centres of the Italian Alps and the Dolomites have diversity enough for all if you know where to look.  Perhaps you wish to enjoy the serenity of Sicily in the summer months or the milder, misty climes of the Tuscan hills in Autumn. Whether you are after the cosy B&B or the all-inclusive resort, the city apartment or the luxury pad, kids clubs and babysitters,Whatever your reasons for travelling to Italy, whether your wish is to indulge, unwind, learn or discover, play or simply relax, all you need to do is to let us know and allow us to create the perfect itinerary. We take away all the stress and ensure that our bespoke proposals do not miss out on the essentials and the tiniest of detail. We ensure that your trip is exquisitely planned, allowing you to fully enjoy yourself as soon as your feet touch the ground.


You will hear much these days about tailor-made holidays, but, when we say it, we mean precisely that. We do not recommend packages somewhere near your requirements, we tailor-make our holidays for you, starting from scratch. They are as far from the run of the mill package tour as the Brenner Pass from Pantelleria!  All we need to know is how long you have available, indicative dates and budget and an idea of what you wish to achieve, and then all you need to do is to leave the rest to us.


Go on, forget trawling those websites and holiday brochures. You can talk to us, email or fill in our Inspire- me form below and we will create your bespoke Italian holiday, the one you have always wanted but have never known where to start.


Our Promise To You Is:


  • Personal one-to-one service from the outset
