About Italy

From cultural wonders like the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel, Pantheon and more in Rome, to the rolling hills of Tuscany, artistic heritage of Florence, meandering canals of Venice and everything in between, it really is a cocktail of delights. With pink bougainvillea growing wild across terracotta roofs, quaint little cafe's serving steaming espresso and homemade delights from secret, long-held family recipes. Italy will inspire you, delight you, move you and open your eyes like nowhere else on earth.

Books inspired by Italy

Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood for your Italy holiday

Those Who Walk Away

Patricia Highsmith

A well-written, tense novel in which the dead bride's father-in-law is convinced the grieving husband killed her and becomes obsessed with vengeance. Set in Rome and the streets and canals of Venice, a deadly game of cat-and-mouse builds as each becomes the hunter and the hunted.

The Talented Mr Ripley

Patricia Highsmith

Travelscoop's Stuart's favourite novel about the ultimate likeable anti-hero. Tom Ripley is talented and scheming with a burning ambition for success that he's prepared to kill for. A gripping psychological thriller which forces the reader to question why they're willing him to get away with it. Italy forms the wonderful backdrop - and it'll make you want to go!

To Venice with Love

Philip Gwynne Jones

With redundancy and an uncertain future in Edinburgh looming, Jones and his wife took a huge leap and moved to Venice to live. Through often-hilarious exploits and an enormous passion for the beautiful city and all things Italian, this is a really enjoyable read.

The Enchanted April

Elizabeth Von Arnim

Tired of the drudgery of life in cold, grey London, four women - previously unknown to each other - answer a newspaper advert to stay for a month in an idyllic Italian castle on the shores of the Mediterranean - based on Cinque Terre. Escaping their daily lives, each transforms in the beauty and warmth of their paradise-like surroundings.

The Thief Lord

Cornelia Funke

Brilliant story for 9-12 year olds about two brothers who escape their aunt by running away to Venice where they join a gang of street kids. With a detective searching for them, they're forced into hiding all over the city - encountering even greater threats and plenty of magic along the way.

Planning a mountain biking holiday this summer? Try South Tyrol, Italy

I have been to Italy umpteen times but never visited South Tyrol until this trip. I also had never been on a mountain biking holiday in South Tyrol or anywhere for that fact so this was a journey of a fair few firsts. We were based in the Biohotel & Bike Hotel Steineggerhof which is located in the picturesque mountain village of Steinegg, in the heart of the Eggental region of South Tyrol, just 13 kilometers from the capital, Bolzano....

Amazing things to do in Umbria, Tuscany’s overlooked little sister

What a difference a C makes...Cumbria is a wild, wet and wellie-wearing region in the north of England, whose damp hedgerows and fields of daffodils fired the literary imagination of Wordsworth several times over. Umbria, on the other hand, is a fragrant, olive-soaked region in central Italy, whose soft pink stone apparently fired the literary imagination of C.S.Lewis and introduced the rest of the world to Narnia (via the real world town of Narni.)...
