The appeal of a multi-centre holiday is in the way you can visit more of a destination during your time away, but the trick is in finding just the right destination. You'll want to pick somewhere with plenty to explore within a reasonable distance, to ensure you make the most of your getaway without going overboard.

What is a multi-centre holiday?

A multi-centre holiday combines two or more destinations into one trip. Doing this is generally cost-effective, allowing you to experience more on your holiday without adding long flights. It also provides an opportunity to delve deep into the region's culture, living more like a local as you drive or take trains or local flights between destinations, and compare and contrast life in different areas.

Why Italy is the perfect multi-centre holiday destination

Italian multi-centre holidays are particularly appealing, as there are so many legendary places to visit within this relative compact country. Moreover, there is a well-established rail network and plenty of local flights, making it straightforward to travel the length of Italy if you choose. For those who choose to drive, Italy's diverse landscapes hold an eternal appeal, particularly for those who turn off the main routes to trundle through smaller towns and villages. In some places, a multi-centre break can feel hectic, like you are trying to pack too much into a limited schedule – in Italy, however, la dolce vita reigns supreme, and it's easy to remain relaxed and in a holiday mood while you explore beyond what a typical tour can offer.

Our top multi-centre Italy holidays

While the choice of Italy holidays is vast, our specialists have put their heads together to come up with three of the best suggested trips – one in the south, one in the centre and one in the north. Of course, we can tailor any trip to your needs, so our featured journeys aren't quite what you're looking for, just give us a call.

Capri & the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is justly the gem of southern Italy, and in a country with this much natural beauty that is an accomplishment worth of a visit. We've crafted this route to take in the towns of Amalfi and Sorrento as well as the island of Capri, offering you plenty of stylish, sun-drenched Italian culture. Stay in world-class properties including Michelin-starred palaces, and enjoy catamaran trips as well as private drivers who are used to navigating the occasionally quite steep roads of the region. Explore this holiday.

Best of Sicily

Sicily captures the imagination like few other places in the world, with its unrivalled archaeological treasures and fierce sense of independence, right down to it's musical language so separate from that of the mainland. We've mapped out a fly-drive route that takes in the cities of Palermo and Taormina, as well as the ancient temples of Agrigento and the sunny beaches of Cefalù, and have a selection of hotels you can choose from to suit your taste and budget. Explore this holiday.

Northern Italy and the Lakes

Legendary in its elegance, the north of Italy has plenty to offer the visitor with a sense of style. Start in Milan, where the fashionable set have long made their mark, before travelling to the Italian Lakes, where Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and Lake Garda have each claimed their fair share of loyalists. It is here that Italy's diversity really shines, with mountains reflected in the calm lake waters, and nearby vineyards and fishing villages produce some of Italy's more beloved wine and food. Verona caps off your exploration, and it is clear why Shakespeare decided it made such a good setting for his famous star-crossed lovers – since ancient times, the city has been home to notable architecture and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore this holiday.

These are just a sampling of some of the Italian city combinations you can enjoy while on holiday – explore our full range for more ideas.
