  • Rome by Moonlight Walking Tour
    Accompany me on this majestic walk to discover the wonders of Rome in a new light. Forget the crowds and the heat and prepare to be dazzled by the rich history, cobble stoned streets, and illuminated monuments. The tour begins with a warm welcome to the Eternal City by Bernini's fountain of four rivers. After getting to know one and other we will venture off into the night. Our first stop is of great importance. The Pantheon is nearly 2000 years old and it still holds the world record for the largest un-enforced dome. Discover the secrets of a once bustling Roman temple. No trip to Rome would be complete without visiting the Trevi Fountain. Hear the story behind the fountain and the architect that created it as the light flickers on it's facade. Quick stop for the coin toss. Leaving Renaissance Rome behind we will head down Rome's most scenic road: Via Fori Imperiale. From the road we will admire unbeatable panaoramic views of the Ancient Roman Forum and the monument built for Vittorio Emanuele 2nd.

Your guide to Italy

Welcome to Italy

A trip to Italy is about eating exquisite food, enjoying friendship, and appreciating the beauty all around you. The country’s stunningly diverse landscape is home to a 2,000-year-old treasure trove of art, architecture, music, and culture. History is a part of life here, from Pompeii’s perfectly preserved ruins to the enduring glamour of the Italian Riviera. The ancient capital of Rome buzzes with style and flair, and Renaissance cities like Milan and Florence are global centres of fashion and art. Of course, Italy’s rural scenery, dotted with sleepy medieval villages, is just as enchanting. The north of the country can claim the mountainous grandeur of the Alps, the Dolomites, and the Italian Lakes, as well as the gentler allure of Tuscany and Umbria. The south boasts one of the most dramatic and attractive coastlines in Europe, a sunshine-drenched climate, sumptuous cuisine, and, thanks to Naples, the greatest place on the planet to eat pizza. Wherever you find yourself, this is a country that won’t fail to steal a piece of your heart.

How do I get around Italy?

All the country’s major cities operate international and domestic flights, so wherever you are in Italy, you’re never too far from an airport. You can also travel to Italy via rail across Europe, and its long coastline is served by cruise ships and ferries. The national train network is a convenient way to get among the main towns and cities, and many places operate local and regional buses. If you’re looking to explore the less-frequented countryside, you may want to rent a car. Taxis can be found in most destinations, and can often be booked via app, although rideshares are less common. Some cities, like Rome, have installed bikeshare and e-scooter services.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Italy?

Spring and autumn are wonderful times to visit Italy, when the temperatures aren’t too hot and the cities and top tourism spots aren’t too crowded. The climate varies across the country, with winters colder and wetter in the north, while Sicily stays relatively mild during the daytime even in December. The Alps and the Dolomites can offer a retreat from the strong summer heat of the rest of the country in July and August. There are many local and religious festivals between February and April, with Easter of course being a big deal, while August is the month when many towns become somewhat abandoned by the locals, who tend to take their own holidays that month. The skiing season runs from late November to early April.

What are the top things to do in Italy?


With rolling hills that rival Tuscany’s, this rural region has gone under the radar despite its obvious draws, which include its stellar gastronomy, winemaking, and hospitality. Its Adriatic coastal towns include lively Rimini, while there’s plenty of heritage in its cities, from the former Byzantine powerhouse of Ravenna to the medieval (and now excellent shopping) centre of Bologna.

Gran Paradiso

Italy’s oldest national park, nestled between Piedmont and the Aosta Valley, features beautiful Alpine scenery, glaciers, waterfalls, and the 4,061-metre peak from which it takes its name. Its wildflowers and wildlife are best seen between spring and autumn, while it transforms into a ski destination in winter.


This rugged island sitting 120 miles off the mainland boasts some of Italy’s most miraculous coastline, with crystal-blue waters, white-sand beaches, and a backdrop of awe-inspiring cliffs and enchanting sea grottos. Inland, Bronze Age monuments sit alongside medieval villages, and wild forests sweep over its granite mountains.
