Opera Festival in Le Marche
The summer Opera Festival at Macerata in Le Marche is held in the 7,000-seater Arena Sferisterio, Italy’s best open-air venue after Verona. Stay at the Hotel Leone, a stylish 8-bedroom country house hotel with sweeping views from its terraces and infinity pool across the hills around Montelparo. The hotel is equidistant to the long, sandy beaches on the Adriatic coast and inland, the dramatic landscape of the Sibillini National Park.
Holiday in the Cilento
Choose from a selection of activities, suitable for families, couples and groups, at the self-sufficient farm estate Locanda San Fantino in the Cilento region of southern Italy.
Convent cooking in Sicily
Perfect your culinary skills on a half or full day cookery course at the Antico Convento Ibla in Ragusa Ibla in south east Sicily. Away from the cooking, there is the historic centre of the UNESCO-listed town of Ragusa IBla and the other baroque towns of the Val di Noto to explore.
