What we love is not just the fact that Italy is, for the most part, warm and sunny, but the light. Tuscany in late September has a special vibrancy to the light that has inspired so many artists and photographers. If you love Italian food then you have to love the markets. Visit the indoor markets in Florence for the aromas alone! For most guests club their holidays together. The favourite aspect of Italy is its islands be it Sicily, Sardinia, or any of the smaller off-shore landmasses. Fashion prevails out of Italy. Clothes shopping in Italy is a way of life. We all know that the Italians are friendly – the friendliest, possibly. No matter where you visited, the Italians were happy to chat, help and advise. Well not to forget, the sumptous food.
