Highlights of Italy trips

 1. The Amalfi Coast: With its shimmering sea, soaring cliffs ad sparking coves, Italy’s Amalfi Coast is enchanting gem among our Italy tours. From secluded mountain paths to rural farmhouse lunches, our local guides know all its best-kept secrets, like just where to get the best slice of pizza or freshly squeezed lemonade.

2. Tuscany: Here the soft, sumptuous landscape is filled with sunflower yellow, olive green and the scent of cypress trees. Exodus takes you away from the tourists, to unearth the hidden Tuscany – which you can explore by bike or on foot, on a guided or self-guided adventure.

3. Sicily: Our Sicily tours get under the skin of Italy’s largest island and explore its secrets. Some of the highlights of our trips to Italy include - explore stunning beaches, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, ancient ruins, medieval churches and prehistoric caves. And then there’s the food: believed by locals to be the best in Italy, it’s truly outstanding.

4. The Dolomite’s Via Ferrata: in the heart of the Dolomites, spectacular mountain routes are linked together by a series of fixed cables, ladders and bridges. Ranging from simple to technically difficult, they give the opportunity to explore breathtaking mountain scenery on our walking and trekking holidays.

5. Puglia: Located in the heel of Italy’s boot, Puglia is one of the lesser known destinations on our Italy trips. Don't let that fool you. The Apulia region will surprise you with its picturesque landscape, ancient hilltop towns, emerald waters, and lush farmlands dotted by ancient olive trees and conical shepherd huts known as trulli.

With so much to see and experience, you'll not want to miss our trips to Italy.
