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.

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

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!

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.

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.

How to get to Positano from Rome + best way!

Positano had been on my bucket list for quite some time. It’s one of those places that cropped up in my Instagram feed almost daily and I’ll admit, I was totally influenced by all the influencers! Since I was short on time I only had one day to visit Positano, so I decided to look into all the options for how to get to Positano from Rome. While there are numerous ways you can get there, I feel like the way I did it was the absolute best way to get to Positano. I’ll share more with you...

How much is a Gondola ride in Venice & is it worth It?

A gondola ride in Venice is a unique bucket-list experience but many people either think of it as too touristy or too expensive to include as part of their itinerary. I’ve taken a ride on a gondola twice now and both times I thoroughly enjoyed it. To me it’s totally worth it as part of the Venice experience. On my first trip to Venice I visited with friends and we were traveling on a budget. I’d heard all sorts of stories about how expensive gondola rides were and I didn’t feel it was...

Food in Rome: 16 Best foods to try in Rome

Ingredients used in Roman cuisine include meat, Pecorino and ricotta cheeses, and fresh vegetables such as globe artichokes. The food...

A day trip to Noto, Sicily

I was in two minds as to whether I should write this blog post about our day trip to Noto, Sicily. It’s not because I don’t think Noto is a city worth visiting – quite the contrary. Instead, I just don’t want to encourage any more visitors to it. A city that flies a little under the radar, Noto – unlike many of its Sicilian neighbours – has remained relatively untouched by mass tourism. Offering the architectural splendour of cities such as Rome, whilst still retaining the...
