Explore Italy… from Home!


Italy Travel Guide

After arriving in Rome, take a seat in the piazza alongside the Pantheon and paint the lively scene.

Explore Pompei’s incredible history on the way to Amalfi for a traditional Italian lunch with a gorgeous view.

Then travel to Venice and open your inner creativity to paint gondolas or an amazing scene at the colourful island of Burano. Try their delicious local treats and sip on their famous liqueur.
