City Breaks in Italy

 Italy's glorious cities are celebrated worldwide for their astounding wealth of art, architecture and history. From the canals and palaces of uniquely atmospheric Venice to the Renaissance marvels of Florence and the epic scale of Rome's ancient sites, the urban centres of Italy are treasure troves of delights for the visitor.

They also offer far more than just art and history - bustling, vibrant and dynamic, the cities of 21st century Italy continue to be home to some of the world's finest cuisine and best shopping, as well as nightlife, contemporary art and design, and everything from buzzing street markets to landscaped parkland... There really is something for all tastes and interests in Italy’s fantastic cities.

From Milan to Naples, Bologna to Palermo, there is always more to discover when you immerse yourself in ‘la dolce vita’, and as our journey planner shows, it's only a relatively short train journey from the UK to Italy. For more great ideas, have a look at our award-winning blog, where Anouk van den Eijnde highlights some of the best breaks by train to the cities of Italy and the rest of Europe.
