A last minute trip to Italy: enjoy one of its many lakes

An offer to of the many lakes in Italy is highly recommended. The country has dozens of beautiful lakes that can be compared to a coastal holiday. Depending on the lake you choose, you can plan to visit many idyllic villages or historic towns.

In the north of Italy, Lago di Como and Lago di Garda are the most popular holiday destinations. You can sunbathe and relax, visit one of the surrounding towns, enjoy local delicacies or go out on the water on a sailing or pleasure boat. Lago d'Iseo, Lago Maggiore, Lago di Endine, Lago di Lugano and Lago di Varese are also located in northern Italy.

In Trentino-Alto Adige, where the northernmost part of Lago di Garda ends, there are other lakes that are worth a visit. Lago di Resia, Lago di Dobbiaco, Lago di Caldaro, Lago di Levico and Lago di Caldonazzo are both winter and summer destinations for a relaxing or sporting holiday. Are you hoping to avoid the hustle and bustle of the coast with a trip to the Italian lakes? It's worth the effort! In high season it is certainly just as busy at the many lakes.

Last minutes to Italy: beach holiday on the Adriatic or Mediterranean coasts

A holiday home by the sea in Italy is not only an absolute must for foreigners, but also for the Italians themselves. It is not surprising that Italians are often tourists in their own country. After all, Italy offers something for everyone. Mountains, lakes, cities and a beautiful, expansive coastline with a range of beaches characterised by their diversity.

If you book a last minute coastal trip to Italy, you will be able to fully enjoy the beautiful weather and the majestic views of the coastline. It's a great place to enjoy a plate of Parma ham and Mozzarella with a glass of Italian wine in your hand!

There are offers to several destinations on the Italian coast. So it pays to know which type of beach is where. If you are looking for a real jet-set location, you can go to Tuscany where the Forte dei Marmi is a real attraction, the Porto Cervo on Sardinia, or the Portofino in Liguria. Going with a young family? Then Lignano in Veneto, Pesaro in Marche and Cattolica in Emilia-Romagna are recommended. If you want to dance into the early hours, head to Rimini, Lido di Jesolo or Giardini Naxos. If you want to enjoy the many beautiful beaches on an island, you can always take the boat to a holiday home on Sardinia or Sicily. These islands should not be forgotten when we talk about beautiful beach holidays in Italy. 

Discover the beauty of Italy's historic cities

Want to be on the move? Italy is full of interesting cities, all with a rich culture and history. Number one on the list is undoubtedly Venice. This spectacular city is indeed unique in the world and draws its visitors into a world full of magic and mystery. Depending on the season, the city is partly under water and certain places such as the famous St Mark's Square aren't open to the public. Unless you're on one of the dozens of gondolas, of course. Not cheap that's for sure, but definitely worth it for any couple who want to experience pure romance.

Culture, museums, Roman remains, shops and typical Italian eateries can be found in Rome. This city is full of life and is one of the most famous cities in the world. Pisa with its famous leaning tower should be included on the must-see list of cities in Italy. In addition to the tower, you can also admire the beautiful Piazza dei Miracoli in the city and walk along the banks of the Arno. Fashion, opera and exclusive boutiques can be found in Milan. The city is known as the Valhalla for designers. The luxurious clothing designed here is worn by its high society on a night out at the opera di Milano.
