Best for… Sea Views / Beach Relaxation / Coastal Vistas / Romance & Honeymoons
Syracuse: This Sicily and Sardinia beach vacation begins in the unique coastal town of Syracuse in Sicily, which is not far from Catania on the island’s east coast. The town is famous for its vibrant wine and features glorious sea views, looking out onto the glistening waters of the Ionian Sea. As well as plenty of time to relax on the beach (we love Plemmirio), we highly recommend taking some time to visit the Syracuse vineyards to sample local Moscato di Siracuse wine, which is made exclusively with the divine Moscato Bianco grapes that are grown in the region. As a part of our exclusive service, we can arrange a wine-tasting tour, as well as a VIP tour of Syracuse’s World Heritage Site, where you can discover ancient Greek ruins in the historic centre of Ortigia with a private guide.
Trapani: We continue this Italy beach vacation with a visit to the coastal town of Trapani, which is not far from Palermo (Sicily’s capital) on the island’s west coast. The town is famous for its glorious coastal vistas and sea views thanks to its priviledged position on the coast looking out onto the peace and tranquility of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The town has a particularly friendly and welcoming atmosphere, making it an ideal beach resort for a relaxing vacation. As well as a beautiful port where quaint fishing boats bob in the water, there are many quiet beaches to explore and our favourite is Tonnarella dell’Uzzo in the Zingaro Nature Reserve. Here, you can enjoy sun-soaked landscapes and golden beaches immersed in lush vegetation to give you a feeling of complete peace in nature. As a part of our customized vacation planning service, we can arrange a number of optional extras to complete your holiday experience, such as a food-tasting tour of Trapani so that you can sample iconic Sicilian snacks, such as granita and arancine.
Cagliari: Your Italy beach vacation continues on the island of Sardinia, where we will take you to one of the island’s most exclusive resorts on the south coast: Cagliari. Here, you will have time to relax on one of the glorious beaches, such as Cala Cipolla in the Domus de Maria resort, which features sublime tropical white sand and emerald green waters, and is surrounded by a fragrant Mediterranean garden, making it the perfect choice for a summer honeymoon. As well as relaxing on the beach in front of pretty sea views, we recommend visiting the Cape Spartivento Lighthouse for an epic view of the coast, and as a part of our vacation planning service we can arrange a selection of optional extras, such as a romantic night tour of Cagliari, allowing you to take in pretty architecture as the sun sets.
Orosei: Your Italy beach vacation concludes on the stunning Orosei coast, where you can admire unbelievable views of the Gulf of Orosei on the popular beach of Cala Luna, which has a pretty cliff backdrop that offers welcome shade from the blazing Sardinian sun. You can reach the beach by a private boat from the port of Cala Gonone or the beach of Marina di Orosei and we can arrange this as a part of our luxury vacation planning service so that you can simply sit back in tranquility on the finale of your Italy beach vacation.
