What can be said about a country as famous for its food and wine, as its stunning architecture and natural beauty.

With plenty of landing spots to choose from, Italy is perfect for a weekend adventure on your private charter flight. With most airports just a short hop from city centres, this cultural hotspot promises beaches, fine dining and some of the best wine in the world.

Where you start your tour is up to you, but a long weekend in Rome is hard to beat.

Sink into the best beds in the city at the Waldorf Astoria or the St Regis, before heading down to dinner at The Waldorf’s famous La Pergola restaurant. If you’d prefer to dine outside your hotel, then Marco Martini’s green-themed restaurant is one not to be missed.

Decorated in draping vines and with a truly international feel, every bit of your meal is an experience from the divine aperitifs to sumptuous desserts.

As tempting as it is to spend all your time in the Eternal City, visiting favourites like the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, or the Sistine Chapel there’s so much more to see in this stunning country.

Head north to Venice, landing your charter plane at the Marco Polo airport before entering a city free from the car pollution that usually accompanies a busy city.

Check into the Baglioni Hotel Luna, selecting one of the prestigious suites to call home and enjoy watery views that takes the breath away.

You can easily spend a day meandering through the streets, winding up in St Mark’s Square or taking a boat trip to the nearby islands. Equally a day spent shopping at high-end malls like T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, has much to recommend it.

And if you’re looking for a long stay at the beach, Italy’s got you covered. Head to Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast or the island of Sardinia for white sand and crystal clear water.

Hire a beachside villa or stay in a spa resort such as the Borgo Santandrea overlooking the centuries-old fishing village of Conca dei Marini.

If you’re a sun worshipper there’s no better time to visit this Mediterranean country than during the warm summer months. Even in the colder north, temperatures rarely drop below 18°C in July and August with the figure rising even higher the further south you go.

Outside the height of tourist season, the country enjoys a warm Spring and early Autumn, perfect for walking.

Italy never fails to produce the perfect holiday, whether a short hop or two-week break, the language, the food, and the sights are all there for you to enjoy. Looking to book a private jet charter to Italy? Contact our specialist private jet hire team today.
