Destination guide

Experience Italy in vacation home rentals

Long considered one of Europe's most glamorous vacation destinations, Italy's cultural and artistic heritage have lent it an air of elegance and sophistication that's hard to resist. The architectural triumphs of Rome, Florence, and Verona pay tribute to the country's pioneering role in the Renaissance era, while the fashion capital of Milan adds sleek lines and glimmering modernity to the must-see list. And it’s not just built heritage that brings visitors to Italy—vacation rentals are in high demand in the fall months, when the stunning Tuscan foliage starts to turn, and during the sun-soaked summers in seaside Genoa and Syracuse.

While it's tempting to head for the iconic sights of Italy's capital, there's more to the country's heritage highlights than Rome.

This Roman amphitheater, built in the 1st century CE, is located in the bustling market square of Piazza Bra and is best known for its opera performances. Guests can enter through one of the 70 or so arches, and enjoy some of the world's finest musicians within the resplendent surroundings of this architectural triumph.

Summer averages still peak in the mid to high 70s, so you won't have to worry about wrapping up warm.
