There are countless things you can expect from any luxury Italy travel destination, including a fascinating history, famous cuisine, and iconic cities. The timeless glamour of Italy offers something for everyone; whether you want to experience ancient civilizations, fine cuisine and hospitality, or explore coastal cities in pursuit of ‘La Dolce Vita’. Travelers to Italy should consider these top 5 luxury destinations:
Florence is one of Tuscany’s most charming cities, surrounded by history, art, and architecture. Works by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo are located within its borders; as is the Uffizi Gallery. Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance.
Puglia is a southern region of Italy, forming the heel of Italy’s “boot.” In addition to the villages, ancient farms, and miles of coastline in Puglia, one can experience the charm and luxury that only Italy can offer.
Some notable destinations in Puglia include:
- Capital Bari, a bustling port and university town.
- The city of Lecce is known as the “Florence of the South,” for its baroque architecture.
- Alberobello and the Itria Valley, home to an abundance of “Trulli,” traditional stone huts with iconic conical roofs.
Italian fashion and design are centered in Milan. But high-end shopping isn’t the only thing you’ll discover there. As with most places in Italy, Milan is also a historical and cultural gold mine. Artistic and architecturally rich, Milan is home to the cathedral Duomo di Milano and Santa Maria Delle Grazie convent, where Leonardo da Vinci painted “The Last Supper.”
The Amalfi Coast region spans 34 miles down the west coast of central Italy. The mountains create a breathtaking scene. Sail in the cobalt blue seas and view the Lattari Mountains as well as the bays, beaches, and terraces in the region. There are multiple towns and small cities to explore, including many mountaintop villas and resorts. The Amalfi Coast allows you to experience the bounty of the citrus, vineyards, and olive groves of Italy in one of the most luxurious places on earth.
Located about 40 km from Milan, in Lombardy, Lake Como is the deepest lake in Italy. This lake sits among beautiful Victorian gardens, lakeshore restaurants, and vineyards. An inverted Y-shaped lake, Lago di Como is surrounded by mountains and charming resort villages. Even ancient Romans flocked to Lake Como to enjoy its cool air and picturesque mountains. Thanks to the mountains, Lake Como stays relatively cool even in the summer, making it a popular destination for water sports, swimming in the lake, and soaking up the sun.
