Italia! Guide – The Grand Tour 2018 on sale now

This excellent Grand Tour 132-page travel guide from the publishers of Italia! magazine is packed with expert travel know-how, stunning imagery and itineraries to help make the most of your next trip to Italy – whether you are planning a short break or a longer getaway to this captivating country.

 

This glossy guide takes its inspiration from The Grand Tour adventures of days gone by. Rather like an 18th-century Gap Year, wealthy young aristocrats were dispatched to Italy to take ‘The Grand Tour’ in order to complete their education and expand their minds – and the cultural splendours they encountered on their journey are just as dramatic to this day.

 

In the guide we follow in their footsteps through Italy: starting from Aosta in the Italian Alps, the route passes through the magnificent cities of Turin, Milan and Venice and onto Renaissance Florence and Rome – two key destinations on The Grand Tour – and from there, we head further south to Naples, Campania, and finally, across the Strait of Messina to Sicily.


In three easy-to-navigate colour-coded regional sections, you’ll discover the heritage and cultural legacy of the iconic places you visit, as well as guided city tours, where to stay and eat plus excellent local attractions like historic gardens, traditional festivals and stunning beauty spots.

Order your copy online today for just £9.99 (inc.P&P) here.
