Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano

The Italian Connection has been providing exquisitely designed Italian holidays for over 20 years. This, along with their Weddings Made in Italy programme, provides clients with the ultimate experience in service and detail.  With their immense product knowledge and personal recommendations, they can help you tailor a holiday or wedding to suit your needs and your pocket. It really is that simple!

The Italian Connection & Spirito Italiano is all about service, experience and knowledge plus we have a beautiful country to work with.  Italy is a box of assorted chocolates, one further idea more mouthwatering and tempting than the last. The attraction and beauty of Italy is the variety on offer and Italy has it all. From the seas and mountains to the lakes and the cities, nature and wildlife to heritage sites, from art and history to sports and wellness, from food and wine to spas and relaxation. Your time is precious and your time off is even more important, so we have done most of the leg work for you and continue to do so on a regular basis, by scouring the Italian hilltop towns and villages and heading off the beaten track when the need arises.  We have searched high and low for properties and ideas which we feel best represent the country and all it can offer. Whether you are after the simple and economical, the flamboyant and truly luxurious, the unique or the special, the rustic or the family-run, Italy has something for everyone.

Our portfolio is extensive and we can assure the very best that Italy has to offer according to your budget. From the great art cities, Florence, Rome, Venice and Naples to the distinctive regions of Piedmont and Sicily, Emilia Romagna and Apulia, from the small villages and towns tucked away in the Apulian interior to the coastal hideaways in Liguria, from the great mountains of the Dolomites and the Alps, to the simple tranquillity of the lakes, from the rolling gentle Tuscan hills to the dramatic scenery of the Amalfi Coast, from the gourmet foods of the Piedmont and the Veneto, to the wines and oils of Tuscany and Umbria.
