Then you can spend a week in the country side around Tuscany and a week exploring the cities or relaxing in the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast. This Coast is surrounded by islands such as Capri and Ischia and offers you breath-taking views.
Tuscany is one of our most popular destinations and one of our personal favourite places to visit whilst in Italy. Tuscany is famous for its breath-taking rolling countryside, its medieval hill top villages, fine wines, incredibly delicious cuisine and amazing cultural cities such as Florence, Pisa and Siena. Tuscany is also home to some of the world’s best fashions and the world’s best vineyards. Here you can indulge in some fine dining and some of the best served foods in these Italian restaurants. The menus here ranges from tasty tomato sauce dishes, hot cheesy pizza, soft pasta salads and succulent chicken dishes.
There is no better way to experience the area like a local then renting a luxury Villa in Tuscany. Exceptional Villas are pleased to have the best Luxury Tuscany Villas on offer. We also highly recommend that you rent a car whilst you are on your vacation in Tuscany. This way you will be able to properly explore the stunning country side, pretty town centers, villages and cites that are just overflowing with culture, local business, architecture and history. Each of the Villas in Tuscany is unique.
Amalfi Coast is home to some of the world’s best and most beautiful scenery. The Amalfi coastline runs from Punta campanella to Salerno and includes the well-known towns of Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento.
Amalfi is a good base to begin. It has pretty cobblestone streets and a lovely main square. It is located at sea level and has a very nice public beach and promenade where you can walk and enjoy the amazing views. This is the perfect place to enjoy a new signature dish as you sit down to dinner in a traditional Italian restaurant. Maybe even order a refreshing bottle of some local white wine.
Then there is the island of Capri located just one hour off shore by boat. Capri is a wonderful spot to either rent a villa or take a boat trip for the day. It is very chic and glamorous, and the main town is full of designer shops and some of the best Amalfi Coast restaurants. The Amalfi Coast restaurants that are elegantly distributed across this peninsula. From the complexity of sauces, fresh seafood and the style with which dishes are constructed, all of these guarantees a flawless dining experience for couples, groups or families. If you like hiking, there are lots of wonderful paths and Capri also has a great selection of beach clubs where you can enjoy lunch and sunbath for the day. One of the most popular things to do when you visit Capri is a trip to the famous Blue Grotto.
Sorrento is another favourite town of ours. It is slightly larger than some of the other towns and it is a perfect location from which to explore some of the most interesting attractions. One of these is Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. Pompeii was one of Italy’s main Roman cities until it was completely buried by a volcanic eruption in 79 A. D. Consequently, the town was incredibly well preserved, and you will therefore get a real feel of early roman life. If you are thinking of visiting Pompeii, you should order online to secure tickets for your personal tour. Sorrento’s town centre is charming with fabulous shopping and a seaside promenade. You could spend hours here, exploring the beautiful streets, each with its own unique style and traditional design. The restaurants in Sorrento are also excellent. Most of our Sorrento Villas come with private pools and fabulous views. Other trips we recommend are a visit to Herculaneum and the Greek Temples of Paestum
Another very picturesque spot is the town of Ravello. It is a hill top town with panoramic views and lush gardens. One of the most popular of these gardens is the Cliffside Garden where you not only get to see the most beautiful plants and flowers, but you also get one of the best views on the coastline. The town is located 365 meters above the sea. One of the highlights of any visit to Ravello is to take a visit to Villa Rufolo which has incredible views and hosts both indoor and outdoor concerts that are truly magical.
Positano is another one of the most beautiful villages along the Amalfi Coast. It is a cliff top village with a pebble beachfront and built on the side of a hill. The centre of the town is stunning and is lined with stylish designer boutiques, gourmet restaurants and cafes. One of the most well-known sites in the town is the Chiesa di Santa which is a Majolica tiled dome. There is also a fascinating Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary which is well worth a visit. One of our favourite things to do in Positano is follow the hiking trail which links the town to other coast towns.
Exceptional Villas feature some of the most beautiful Amalfi Coast Villas and our team will be delighted to help you find the perfect one.
Puglia is one of the lesser known tourist spots in Italy, but it is very beautiful and offers clients a less busy and more local perspective of the country.
