CAR-FREE HOLIDAYS IN ITALY

If you are used to daily driving, going car-free can be incredibly liberating. Take advantage of high-speed trains between cities, local buses to manoeuvre winding roads, and ferries and boats for the best coastal views. If you prefer not to fly, we can also advise on rail holidays that avoid air travel.

 

The hotels have been chosen for their convenient locations and comforts and if you are short on time, we can help you arrange chauffeur-driven excursions and private guided tours of most of Italy’s world-class sights and historic towns.

 

To save you time and stress we always include private airport transfers in our holidays and only use tested and selected drivers.
