Italy short breaks

Italy short breaks

A short riding holiday through the Tuscan countryside and walking in breathtaking Basilicata are two more active options among our Italy short breaks. Add snowshoeing on volcanic Mt Etna or an art break in the natural wonder of the Sabina Valley. Alternatively, try a delicious long weekend cooking with an Italian family or kick back at an organic B&B in the green heart of Rome.

Long weekend cooking in Italy
The most memorable parts were: the people, being welcomed by a family (and the incredible 'mater familias' Assuntina), the scenery, the view from my room, the cooking, the food. (more)Marga Peters
The location is idyllic and the views and house are wonderful. The most memorable part was learning to make fresh pasta and being inspired to continue at home, and relaxing in the grounds. (more)Lindsey Evans
The beauty of the place, the warm of the house or maybe most of all the wonderful people we met there. I was looking forward the cooking lessons but we have found much more than that. (more)Anca Stanese
From 400 excluding flights
