The gravity and grandeur of Italy’s religious architecture, the beauty and historical significance of its paintings, frescoes and sculptures, and the picturesque beauty of its landscapes delight every time.
ACE’s extensive range of itineraries exploring different parts of the country – from Aquileia in the north to Puglia in the south, via the cities of Bologna, Mantua and Parma to the islands of Sardinia and Sicily – offers something for everyone.
Few places can lay claim to hold a greater collection of artistic treasures than northern Italy and its cities and towns have arguably contributed to the development of Western Art more so than any other part of Italy. Central Italy and Rome on the other hand have remained a favourite cultural destination for ACE participants over the years, and indeed forms part of a travel tradition that dates back to the 18th century. The southern half of the Italian peninsular, alongside the islands of Sardinia and Sicily are home to some of Europe's most spectacular archaeological sites. The rich diversity of finds here span thousands of years, from the unique megalithic remains of Sardinia's Nuraghi, to the magnificent temples constructed by Greek colonists in Sicily, and the truly unmissable Roman sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
