The blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the luscious and varied terrain are just two reasons that a holiday in Italy is a lifelong goal for a multitude of travelers. It is absolute paradise with its rolling hills, mild weather, beautiful scenery, and extremely rich culture. While it is beautiful and scenic, it is also a great place to visit all throughout the year. A European vacation centered in this hub of culture and pristine landscape is an excellent choice for everyone.

Custom vacation packages can be as varied as the traveler wants them to be. Many packages can be enjoyed at any time, while others are tailored to certain times of the year. A holiday in Italy can be extremely flexible because it has excellent offerings regardless of the season.
If a Christmas vacation is desired, there are packages made exclusively for the winter months. Winter ski packages are available to travelers who want to visit the immaculate Italian Alps. They are popular for the ample amount of powder that dusts them each winter, offering prime skiing. Choosing this type of package offers an enchanting ski vacation that is immersed in beauty and adventure.
Spring is an especially good time to take a guided sightseeing tour as the countryside erupts in full bloom. And autumn is a wonderful time to embark on a culinary tour as fall hosts major events for wine and food enthusiasts in different regions, including truffle hunting season and numerous grape harvests. These seasons are popular because they may be less crowded than summer, and can sometimes offer reduced travel rates. There are a number of tours available for couples or a group that can be headed by a guide. This is a wonderful way to learn detailed history and information on the various sites along the way.
