Places to visit in Italy & glamping

Welcome to Italy. Home of some of the world’s best architecture, artistic masterpieces, and cuisine, Italy is a country that inspires like no other. Millions of tourists each year are lured to the country by the timeless ‘dolce vita,’ the dramatic Italian coast, food and wine, and rich history. It’s here you can stand in front of Michelangelo’s David and under the Sistine Chapel frescoes, take in Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Primavera, and da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

Beach holidays in Italy

Beach holidays in Italy are easy to plan when you have such amazing choices. With 4,723 miles of coastline, Italy is dotted with some of the most beautiful beaches and seaside towns in the world. Think of your typical Meditteranean beaches, white sand, limestone cliffs, and the bluest, clearest waters you’ve ever seen. From Sicily to Sardinia, and everywhere in between, we have a few of the best beaches in Italy to recommend. Starting in Sicily, the beach at the base of Scala dei Turchi may be one of the most unique. With the rocky cliffs as its backdrop, the gold sand contrasts the bright blue ocean, making for a picture-perfect setting on your luxury Italian holidays. More of the best Sicily beaches include Cala Tonnarella—highly worth the hour’s hike it takes to get there—as well of the beaches along the coast of the Vendicari Nature Reserve. When you visit Sicily and go beach camping, Italy and its beaches are your backyard and you can enjoy some of the best beaches without the crowds. Of course, there are many more spots for beach camping in Italy not in Sicily. Chiaia di Luna in Ponza is probably one of the most scenic spots in Italy, with a narrow crescent of sand at the base of a towering volcanic rock; La Pelosa in Sardinia is one of our favorites on the island, while San Fruttuoso in Liguria is almost exactly like the beaches of Portofino, but without all the crowds. Or check out Marasusa in Calabria, Spiaggia dei Conigli on the island of Lampedusa, Baia dei Turchi in Puglia—a Blue Flag beach—and Cala Goloritzé in Sardinia. There are few countries in the world where you can find such a diverse variety of coastlines and beaches, making Italy beaches one of our favorites spots for summer holidays and glamping. Italy beach holidays are easy to find when you book with Glamping Hub, just take a look!

Luxury retreats & mountains in Italy

Moving from the coast to the mountains, luxury Italy holidays in the Alps are not to be missed. The Alps, the largest European mountain range, ends in Northern Italy. The imposing Alpine mountains pass through Liguria to Valle d’Aosta, Piedmont, Lombardy, Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto, and Friuli Venezia Giulia. In the northeast corner, this mountain chain is called the Dolomites, while in the northwest they are the Alps. These mountains in Italy are the perfect year-round holiday destination. Mountain holidays in Italy can be spent hiking some of the most beautiful trails in Europe or skiing at some of the world’s premier ski resorts. If you’re looking to go skiing in Italy, check out resorts like Cortina d'Ampezzo, Val Gardena, Sestriere and Val Chisone, Courmayeur, or Alta Badia, to name a few. Here you can find some of the best skiing in Europe, without all the crowds you might find at some of the better-known French ski resorts. If you’re visiting in the summer and looking to hike, you have hundreds if not thousands of miles of trails to choose from in the north. Check out the Orobie trail in Lombard, trails in Gran Paradiso National Park in Piedmont, Tre Cime di Lavaredo or Braies Lake in the Dolomites, or The Giants Trek in Val d'Aosta.

Best time to visit Italy

The best time to visit Italy is probably in the shoulder seasons, between the end of August and mid-November and March through early June. This way, you miss most of the crowds in the summer or winter and will get the best deals when it comes to price. During these times of the year, the temperatures are just right for spending lots of time outside. August may be the worst time to visit. Not only are the streets full of visitors but most of the country takes the month off, so many places are closed; and those places that are open, usually have really elevated prices. In the summer, the whole country sees a spike in temperature, although more in the south and inland. Cities in Tuscany and Umbria which are landlocked can feel quite stifling during a heatwave in the summer months. Temperatures usually begin to rise in May and can often last through September. Winters in the north of Italy are cold, with lots of snow. In the south, the weather is a bit warmer, probably averaging around 10°C (50°F). Throughout basically the whole country, the rainiest months are usually October and November.
