Southern Italy

This is the “Mezzogiorno,” a very different and fascinating part of Italy.

Here you will find a lush fertile landscape, thousands of miles of beaches and picturesque historic towns. It is a great place to relax, explore and sample the unique culture and cuisine.

You will love the warm Mediterranean climate, the turquoise sea, the millions of ancient olive trees, the amazingly clear starlit night skies and much more. It is a land rich in history and the finer things of life. Those “things” which make a holiday into something special.
