About Italia!

We have a sparkling line-up of absorbing features for you to enjoy this month. We start in Trieste, a city whose remote location is no hindrance to its elegant aspect and rich cultural history. Moving west, we head to Venice, which despite the exceptional acqua alta last November is most assuredly ‘open for business’. The silk mills of Como are our next stop, to discover the proud manufacturing traditions of this luxurious and ethereal fabric. You’ll also enjoy sustainable hospitality at Borgo Pignano in the Tuscan heartland and take a gentle hike around medieval Orvieto too.
