EXPERIENCE MATTERS. WE’VE BEEN PLANNING CARIBBEAN TRAVEL FOR OVER 23 YEARS.
Deciding on which island to visit is the hardest part of planning any Caribbean vacation. Our travel advisors don’t expect you to know where you want to go.

Birthday trip to Bucuti Beach Resort in Aruba
” Bucuti was absolutely amazing, fun, trip of a lifetime…perfect size resort for us. The staff were incredible as well as our room and food, of course, the beach! Thank you so much for your time and recommendation! “
Honeymoon to Le Toiny in St. Barths.
” Absolute perfection! It took us forever to decide on a hotel, but thankfully we listened and went with Le Toiny. I’m certain any place we had booked on our own would not have been as wonderful as this. Thank you so very much! “
Girlfriends Weekend to Nizuc in Cancun, Mexico
” We ate, drank, and floated all weekend! It was just what we needed. The hotel is an architectural gem and was so pretty to look at. The brunch was insane – I’ve never seen anything like it. We prefer to try new places, but I think we will be returning to Nizuc! “
Sunset Villa at Tryall in Montego Bay, Jamaica
” We loved Sunset and the staff at Sunset (Melva and Sonia were the best!). The villa was just what we wanted (to relax in our private pool or on our own beach). The villa was beautiful and we loved the open layout. We loved that we were on the beach (versus up on the hillside) and able to walk to the water sports center. Everyone was really nice and we would definitely return to Sunset. The food/drinks worked out fine and everything was yummy! Thank you again for all of your help. “
Family Vacation to Sugar Beach by Viceroy in St. Lucia
Sugar Beach was probably the nicest place I have ever been, both in service and scenery. We were upgraded to a Luxury Villa, with a terrace and plunge pool. The beach is incredible, and I couldn’t believe the snorkeling was that good right from the beach. We ate at Mango Tree at Stonefield Estate one night based on our taxi driver’s recommendation and it was very good. Thanks again for all of your help. Everything went very well! “

- Location: Google maps
- Hotel website: Belmond Cap Juluca
- Tip: get complimentary VIP perks when booking via Virtuoso
Belmond Cap Juluca is an island chic beachfront hideaway located along the intimate crescent and healing shores of Maundays Bay on the exclusive island of Anguilla in the British West Indies. The glamorous and idyllic resort offers Belmond’s world-class service and is considered to have the best beach in the Caribbean. Capturing the charisma, character and charm of the Caribbean, Belmond Cap Juluca recently completed extensive renovations of its 23-whitewashed Moorish villas, taking the already impeccable resort to an even higher standard of excellence.
Belmond Cap Juluca features in my top 10 lists of the best hotels in the Caribbean and my favorite Belmond hotels in the world .

PROS & THINGS I LIKE
- Belmond Cap Juluca is located in the British West Indies on the serene shores of the tiny laid-back island of Anguilla , which is a haven for those wishing to escape and disconnect from everyday distractions. Anguilla boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean with the soft white sand and clear blue waters where dolphins swim in the surf. There is a well-developed pioneering food scene with plenty of colorful beach bars. Discerning travelers come here to sprawl on the island’s silky beaches, swim in clear turquoise waters, play Robinson Crusoe on offshore islands, and snorkel or dive the fish-filled reefs and wrecks. Anguilla is popular among jetsetters and celebrities, who enjoy the island’s low-profile character and luxurious offerings.
- Enjoying a privileged setting in the south-west of the island, the five-star property is wrapped around the turquoise waters and pristine white sands of a magnificent half crescent bay. Offering a view of both the sunrise and sunset, the spectacular mile-long cove is widely considered as on one of the world’s best beaches and the paradisiacal setting encourages hotel guests to unwind to the slow rhythm of Caribbean island life. Dozens of comfortable loungers and stylish umbrellas are placed along the beach’s entire length, and beach service is provided. Complimentary water sports are available on the beach including scuba diving excursions, water skiing, wake boarding, sea kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding, and catamaran sailing.
- One of the Caribbean’s most iconic properties, Belmond Cap Juluca is steeped in rich history and romance . In 1984, on a boat trip around Anguilla, Linda and Charles Hickox spotted the undeveloped Maundays Bay and decided to build a restaurant here, which they named Pimms. Four years later, the couple opened a hotel on the same site – Cap Juluca, named for the rainbow spirit of the Arawak whose presence can still be felt as rains come and go, with the sun shining through the bright colors of the rainbow. The hotel opened to wide acclaim and was an instant hit with the jet-setting travelers of the time, offering unprecedented luxury and glamor, such as private plunge pools (unheard of in the 1980s). Due to its success, the hotel expanded several times over the next decades, with the room inventory increasing from 18 to 96.
- In 2017, another chapter began for the hotel when Belmond – one of the most exclusive hotel brands in the world – acquired the property from Linda and Charles. Formerly known as Orient Express until its rebranding in 2014, Belmond manages a collection of 49 iconic hotels, trains and river cruises in 24 countries, bringing together some of the world’s most sensational journeys and destinations. With Belmond, you can stay in timeless hotels in Venice , Amalfi and Rio de Janeiro; embrace the spirit of adventure at Machu Picchu or Angkor Wat; glide along the rails through the Swiss Alps; soar across the Andes; or explore the mystifying rivers of Myanmar. Upon its acquisition of Cap Juluca, Belmond carried out a top-to-toe renovation and added a further 23 beachfront villas or suites, bringing the resort’s total inventory to 121 rooms.
- On the outside, the resort features a striking Greco-Moorish architecture and comprises dozens of crisp white pavilions that line the pristine white sands and the sparkling Caribbean Sea. On the inside, the contemporary decor – created by US design firm Rottet Studio – reflects the style of a private residence. The lobby’s high domed ceiling is designed to reveal and dramatically frame the mesmerizing view of the Caribbean Sea. The lobby gives way to a shaded courtyard with a deep green tiled Moroccan pool which offers a panoramic view of the beach. Connecting the lobby pavilion with the cove of Maundays Bay, is a lovely palm-lined terrace with infinity-edge pool. This space – added after the Belmond takeover – offers guests the best of both worlds: direct access to the beach and shaded corners to enjoy poolside tapas and cocktails.
- Located just steps from the white sandy shores are 129 guest rooms and suites – all with large private verandas or balconies. During my holiday, I stayed in a first-floor deluxe beachfront room, which is the hotel’s entry room category. The spacious bedroom came with a kingsize bed, sitting area, a 6ft (1.8m) high ‘maxibar’, and a Moorish-style balcony. The interior honored laid-back island life with natural fabrics injected with a mix of blues, greens and botanical prints, along with the clever use of handcrafted limestone floor. Overlooking a walled botanical courtyard, the large bathroom was equipped with two lavatories and a deep soaking tub. Belmond Cap Juluca also offers multi-bedroom villas that offer more space for families and groups of friends, featuring high spec kitchens, large dining areas and private pools.
- The newly reinvigorated Pimms restaurant – the hotel’s signature restaurant – serves authentic Caribbean classics and Anguillan delicacies in relaxed elegant surroundings.
- The casual all day dining restaurant CIPs by Cipriani references the Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice, offering Italian cuisine (including the famous Cipriani carpaccio). A quality breakfast buffet is also offered here each morning (à la carte dishes are charged).
- Freshly squeezed fruit juices, smoothies and light bites are on offer at the fashionable Maundays Lounge and Pool Terrace during the day (located next to the lobby). By night, service here turns to sophisticated ceviche and tapas as the rum cocktails flow.
- A rustic beach bar – ‘The Cap Shack’ – is located on a remote stretch of Maundays Bay. Open to island dwellers and seafarers alike, the shack serves creatively mixed rum punches, catch of the day and BBQ beach tapas from a food truck.
- Belmond Cap Juluca has its own spa, called Arawak Spa . The Arawaks who first inhabited this land celebrated the renewal and rejuvenation of each new day by honoring Atabeyra, the mother goddess of fertility. They would burn incense and offerings of sage, lemongrass and sacred herbs to awaken the mind and spirit. Like the Arawaks, the Arawak spa rituals are designed to bring guests into harmony with nature and refocus your energy. Housed in one of the pavilions along the beach, the spa has three treatment rooms, two beach cabanas, a tiny pool and a seductive menu of massages and rituals. The resort also features other wellness and leisure facilities, such as a well-equipped fitness room, located besides the lobby.
- Belmond also manages another property, close to Anguilla: the tropical hideaway Belmond La Samanna on the island of St Martin (30 minutes by boat from Anguilla). Characterized by white stucco Mediterranean architecture adorned with lush tropical foliage, Belmond La Samanna is an exclusive luxury resort secluded on Baie Longue. Set amidst 55 acres of tropical gardens, curled next to a pristine beach, Belmond La Samanna is a paradise for the active and non-active vacationer. Both Belmond resorts offer an easy twin center stay with a chance for guests to enjoy the serenity of Anguilla and ‘Joie de Vivre’ of St Martin. I suggest you first stay at Belmond La Samanna before proceeding to Belmond Juluca, to save the best for last.
CONS & THINGS TO KNOW
- All beaches in Anguilla are open to the public, and so is the beach of Maundays Bay, where Belmond Cap Juluca is located. However, it is the only hotel in this part of Anguilla, so the beach feels very private and quiet with only few day trippers venturing out to this corner of the island.
- The property offers an excellent breakfast buffet (in non-COVID19 times). Unfortunately, not all breakfast items are included in the room rate: a la carte dishes – such as pumpkin fritters or eggs Benedict – are offered for a supplement.
- Belmond Cap Juluca offers 64 rooms, 42 suites and 23 two to five bedroom villas, all positioned along the white sand beach to get the best view of the turquoise sea. However, the most affordable entry-category rooms (classed as Deluxe) are a bit underwhelming for the price tag (above $1000 USD in high season). I advise to splurge on a more premium room or suite, some of which come with separate living rooms, rooftop terraces or private plunge pools.

BEST TIME TO VISIT
Anguilla has a pleasant tropical climate with average highs that hover in the 80s °F (around 28 °C), usually tempered by cooling trade winds. December to March are the most popular months to visit, characterized by warm, generally dry days, whilst the summer months between June and November tend to be more humid, with regular showers and the possibility of tropical storms and hurricanes. The best time to visit the island is April and May, a sweet spot featuring lower prices and fewer crowds.
HOW TO GET THERE
Visitors to Anguilla must either fly to St. Martin and take a short ferry (or pivate sea shuttle) to the island, or fly in directly (by way of a small seaplane) from San Juan Puerto Rico. Once in Anguilla, the resort is a short 15 min taxi ride from either the harbor or airfield.

Hotel review: The Resort at Pedregal (Cabo, Mexico)
How are the villas laid out relative to the restaurants? Is someone in a villa on the end of the beach going to be hiking a long distance to the buffet in the morning, or receiving cold room service food?
@Mike: efficient buggy service is provided
You rate the food at Cap a 9/10, while the food at the FS gets an 8/10. How would describe the difference in the culinary experiences at the two? And why does Cap ultimately rate a bit higher?
@ Josh: Cap Juluca has more restaurants and it serves a more sophisticated cuisine. The Four Seasons serves great food as well but its menus and dining venues are rather geared towards an American clientele (with loud music and spicy dishes)
Curious, what time of year you visited? We are considering for an anniversary trip in late October/early November. Getting mixed reviews about the weather that time of year.
@ Meg: I visited Belmond Cap Juluca in December. Late October/early November is still in the rainy season.
Is scuba diving available from the property? Do they provide the service or do I need to go off property?

Luxury Vacations in the Caribbean
It’ll come as no surprise that Ian Fleming dreamt up James Bond while living in the Caribbean, where luxury travel first cut its teeth. After all, this jewellery box of 7,000 islands – with hedonism in Cuba and rum-punch in Jamaica – is all about big characters and easygoing exotica. But don’t write it off as ‘just beaches,’ because you’ve never seen beaches like the Cays of Tobago nor felt the rush of landing by Seaplane at Paradise Island (yes, it is a real place).
In Antigua, you’ll be spoilt for choice with one beach for every day of the year. That’s right, home to 365 beaches – letting you sunbathe, snorkel, dive, windsurf and boat around the island to your heart’s content. Touching down in St Lucia, adventure seekers can revel in countless opportunities for wild jungle hikes, coral reef dives and mountain climbs. If you’re looking for a romantic touch, just let us know and we’ll arrange a candle-lit dinner on the secluded beaches with you and your beau.
In between the unforgettable experiences and lavish hotel stays, take some time out to indulge in Caribbean cuisine. Get a taste for island life with freshly grilled lobster and kick back with a glass of rum and let the reggae float over you.

The Best Luxury Hotels in the Caribbean Are Worth the Splurge
For a region saturated with ho-hum all-inclusives, it definitely pays to indulge in the Caribbean. Spend a little more, and everything from the piña coladas you get at the bar to the serviced poolside cabanas will be that much better—not to mention the amenities (sea-facing infinity pools, Michelin-starred restaurants, private butlers) go above and beyond. Ready to treat yourself? Take your pick from the 10 best luxury hotels in the Caribbean.

The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas
Recognize this breezy Bahamian beauty? The luxe colonial-style on Paradise Island’s northern shore played a starring role in Casino Royale —and is every bit as luxurious as the movie lets on. Across 35 acres of manicured gardens, you’ll find a Balinese-inspired spa with open-air treatment rooms, a Tom Weiskopf–designed golf course, tennis courts, and preppy-chic rooms and suites complete with dark wood floors, striped rugs, ocean views, and private butlers to cater that your every need.

Jumby Bay Island, Antigua
Two miles by boat from mainland Antigua sits stunning Jumby Bay , a 300-acre island originally discovered by Christopher Columbus that's now one of the Caribbean's most exclusive all-inclusive stays. The price is steep, to be sure, but includes basically everything you could want in a dream tropical getaway—accommodates in a residential-style cottage or villa (which come with outdoor showers and wraparound decks), five-star service (including beach butlers, natch), and all daily meals, beverages, and tea service. Can't decide which of the four restaurants—posh Estate House, campy Beach Shack, airy Verandah, or laid-back Pool Grille—to dine at first? We feel you. Just be sure to save your appetite (and your best frock) for their weekly White Night BBQ.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis
For super seclusion, stay at the over-the-top Four Seasons Resort on St. Kitts's sister island, Nevis. It’s decked out with all the perks you’d imagine: three infinity pools, pavilions with wraparound verandas, and a Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course all resting at the base of Mount Nevis. There’s also a sailing school, tennis courts, and guided hikes through the rainforest trails.

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Puerto Rico
As far back as the '30s, Dorado Beach has a low-key playground for personalities like Amelia Earhart and, later, JFK, who were lured to Puerto Rico’s idyllic north coast by a mod 50-acre hideaway Laurance Rockefeller built there to entertain Hollywood friends. The redesigned 114-room resort takes cues from the original building but adds Ritz-Carlton’s signature spin with a statement infinity pool, glitzy multi-bedroom villas scattered along the property's three-mile coastline, and a five-acre spa that resets the wellness bar. If you can tear yourself away from your private plunge pool (a suite standard), there’s sublime Spanish-inspired seafood at José Andrés’ Mi Casa restaurant and an 11-mile nature path that’s perfect for sunset strolls.

COMO Parrot Cay, Turks and Caicos
This posh hideaway , on a 1,000-acre private island a 30-minute boat ride away from Providenciales, is Caribbean seclusion at its most elegant. The 75 guest rooms, villas, and beach houses are the definition of island chic, with gauzy canopied beds, wicker furniture, and airy open-plan layouts. How you spend your days here is up to you—sunbathing on the mile-long beach, luxuriating in your private plunge pool (if you splurged on a swanky beach villa), getting pampered at the spa with a signature Como Shambhala massage—but don’t forget to refuel at one of the two restaurants, which spoil guests with Thai, Japanese, Caribbean, and Mediterranean specialties.

Amanera, Dominican Republic
The Dominican's quiet northern shore, far from the resort-crowded beaches of Punta Cana, still flies under the radar—a perfect spot for Aman's 29th resort. Amanera is a visual stunner, with a main building of glass and Indonesian teak and just 25 villas with large personal pools overlooking the mile-long Playa Grande. While the water is often too rough to swim in, there's more than one way to explore beyond the sand, including mountain biking, trail hiking, and an 18-hole golf course—a first for the Aman brand. At day's end, order up a Mama Juana (a regional drink of dried bark, rum, honey, and red wine) and head for the cigar lounge, where experts hand-roll Dominican puros .
Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia
One glance at this cliffside aerie in the cliffs of St. Lucia and you’ll see why it’s been consistently voted one of the world’s best honeymoon hotels (and why your room is slapped with a sky-high rate). Each colorful "sanctuary" features an open fourth wall from which to soak in the distant iconic Pitons—whether it’s from a whirlpool bathroom tub or private infinity pool. If you do manage to drag yourself away from your personal haven, head to the restaurant, where a James Beard Award-winning chef prepares multi-course menus on request. If not, don’t fret: dedicated major domos (personal concierges) are on hand to deliver whatever you need.

Mandarin Oriental, Canouan
The ultra-exclusive Pink Sands Club in Canouan, a breezy island near St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is now an opulent Mandarin Oriental . It opened to the tune of $120 million and it shows, from the bigger-than-spacious suites (which start at 1,300 square feet) to the hillside Lagoon Villas retrofitted with private elevators. We can’t decide which view we like most—from the glass-floored overwater treatment rooms at the spa, the hillside yoga pavilion, the sprawling golf course, or the four restaurants, which serve up international cuisine along with perfect people watching.

Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa, St. Barts
The stunning isle of St. Barts in the French West Indies is all about glitz and glamour, and as far as luxury hotels go, it doesn’t get much better than Le Barthélemy . The new 46-room hotel was built with the world's traveling elite in mind: we’re talking breezy-chic guest rooms with Hermès amenities (some even have heated plunge pools), sun-soaked terraces, a seaside Michelin-starred French restaurant, and—the Instagram gold—a massive infinity pool overlooking the Grand Cul de Sac beach. After lengthy days in the sun, give your skin a break with a soothing treatment at the Le Spa, which incorporates products by La Mer.

Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France
When a hotel hails from the same French firm behind brands like Louis Vuitton and Moët & Chandon, you know it's going to be glam. Cheval Blanc , fronting the Baie des Flamands beachfront on St. Barts, is just that. Sprawling villas covered in bougainvillea are effortlessly elegant, with whitewashed interiors, vintage French fabrics, and views of the ocean and gardens. The hotel also happens to be home to the Caribbean's only spa that offers signature Guerlain treatments, as well as a 69-foot yacht and a fleet of mini mokes available for guests to borrow for afternoons of sailing or retail therapy.

How to Find the Best Travel Agent for the Caribbean
Close your eyes. Picture your ideal vacation. You may imagine yourself on a white-sand beach, settled in with a drink in your hand, crystal-blue waters in front of you, and clear skies above. You’ll find this idyllic seaside paradise in the Caribbean, a region filled with all-inclusive resorts, island getaways, and luxury stays for travelers of all types.
It’s a go-to destination for stress-free living and relaxation—and that should extend to planning a trip to the Caribbean, as well.
For years, travelers have turned to agents (now called advisors ) to build their dream vacations, and these specialists continue to grow in importance.
The New York Times recently dubbed advisors “de facto party planner(s)” for eager would-be travelers. The article goes on to declare: “Harried Americans are looking for a proper vacation, not a stressful travel-planning experience.”
Advisors certainly help in that regard. So how do you find the right advisor for your Caribbean vacation, especially when the area presents so many wonderful options?
You should prioritize working with an advisor who’s an expert, has firsthand travel experience, provides excellent customer service, and hooks you up with exclusive deals and upgrades when available.
Where would you like to travel?
Select your destination, and we'll pair you with an inteletravel advisor based on your travel needs., north america, south america, asia & south pacific, they’re experts in the region.
One of the tricky things about planning a vacation is landing on a destination that lives up to (or exceeds) the hype. It seems that new, buzzworthy locales emerge each year, along with more accessible routes to previously tough-to-reach islands.
The best travel advisors earn certifications and stay ahead of travel trends to deliver the advice you need, when you need it. They're Caribbean experts who tailor a personalized itinerary to your specifications, including:
- The ideal destination for your preferred travel type, from luxurious, romantic getaways to jungle adventures and multigenerational family reunions
- The best time to travel to your preferred destination
- The most efficient ways to travel between islands , if you so desire
- All-inclusive packages that will have you enjoying the trip to your heart’s full content
Travel advisors also know the latest safety measures each destination, airline, and lodging have in place.
Most importantly, they’re not focused on finding you the best price, but the most value for your budget. Advisors reach that level of expertise only through experience. Speaking of which...
They Have Firsthand Travel Experience
The best travel advisors travel extensively themselves. When they rave about a resort, they know it inside and out.
Say you’d like to take your family of four on a Caribbean getaway. Advisors could suggest a cruise that hits all of your preferences. They could also talk you through the most family-friendly destinations, such as the Bahamas.
They’ll suggest a resort that accommodates the whole family—with thrills for the kids and relaxation for adults—while also providing guidance on the smaller details that make or break a trip: Are your kids picky eaters? Do you have diet allergies? What activities would you like to do outside the resort?
Beyond that, advisors know what all-inclusive really means at different places, what trendy locations are really worth a visit, and the best ways to get around if you’re looking to explore an entire island. Should you rent a car or rely on ride-sharing?
There’s a reason they say experience is the best teacher, and it’s no different in travel.
They Provide Top-End Customer Service
One of the main reasons travelers love working with advisors is they provide a personal touch a booking engine just can’t mimic. Great customer service goes beyond answering an inquiry, though. It involves building a rapport to get all the details of your vacation just right. The best advisors ask you about everything from your favorite place to sit on a plane to your ideal activities. They’re ready to discover if you’re more interested in exciting nightlife or day-time urban exploring.
In addition to securing your entertainment, advisors should be resources for every stage of your trip. They’ll answer burning questions before you depart, such as: What’s the best way to fend off insects on a tropical island like St. Lucia, and what’s the tipping policy for your destination? They’ll advocate for you if your travel plans change, and offer a travel insurance policy that delivers peace of mind. They’ll follow up when you return, to see just how wonderful the experience was.
The goal is not just to provide a one-time travel adventure, but to also build a relationship you’ll return to again and again.
They Have Access to Exclusive Rates & Upgrades
Just as travel advisors build relationships with their clients, they also work closely with the top brands and vendors in the industry, to the benefit of your bottom line.
This is reflected in exclusive rates unavailable to anyone else (and certainly the general public). It also comes in the form of upgrades, such as access to desired amenities, or complimentary champagne upon arrival.
These relationships can take your vacation from great to unforgettable. After all, who wants to choose between a Caribbean cruise and a luxury, all-inclusive stay when you could possibly have both at one price?
Even if you’re someone who doesn’t care where you stay, and you just want to get away for a while, it doesn’t hurt to ask about exclusive rates or upgrades. Your advisors work magic for a living.
The InteleTravel Advisor Difference
Now that you know what qualities to look for in a travel advisor, it’s time to go find one— and that’s where InteleTravel comes in .
Planning your trip with InteleTravel is easy. To get started , give us a few details, and we'll match you with an InteleTravel Advisor who specializes in the type of travel you are looking for.

Our advisors stay up to date on the latest trends, destinations and deals through continuing certification programs (in addition to annual events). They network with other travel professionals, travel extensively themselves to gain experience and build their expertise, cultivate relationships with all major travel brands to provide the best prices in the industry, and advocate for you if your travel plans change.
“You can book confidently knowing your InteleTravel Advisor will provide you with the guaranteed lowest prices available ,” adds Minson. “And rest easy knowing that there’s a real InteleTravel Advisor watching your back to ensure you have everything you need before, during, and after your trip.”

The Best Places to Visit in Italy Each Month, According to a Luxury Travel Expert
Pro tip: Avoid traveling in July if you can.
Courtesy of IC Bellagio
Everyone loves Italy. Below, A-List travel advisor Andrea Grisdale shares where to go — and, just as importantly, when's the best time to do it.
January: Florence and Rome
Put on your jacket and venture out into Rome to experience the city's hidden gems on an iconic vintage Vespa. Or, head into the hallowed halls of the Uffizi Galleries in Florence after the midday crowds disperse to enjoy a personalized tour of the museum’s masterpieces.
February: Venice and Viareggio
Venice is always an exciting city to visit, but during Carnival, the atmosphere is spellbinding. Take it all in amid the city locals and let yourself be carried away by the energy and charm that is the floating city — with plenty of fantastic hotels to choose from.
The city of Viareggio, in Tuscany, is another great choice for February, as its annual Carnival includes one of the best known papier-mâché float parades in the country. The streets buzz with activity; destinations like Forte dei Marmi, Carrara, Lucca, and Pisa are right on your doorstep; and you can easily arrange a day trip to Cinque Terre .
Laura Lezza/Getty Images
Famous across the globe for its food, wine, and stunning scenery, the Piedmont region is a treat for all the senses and surprisingly under-visited. Starting mid-March is the best season to taste local black truffles, along with decadent chocolate treats from the Cherasco commune, artisanal cheeses in the town of Bra, and wines of the Barolo appellation.
April: Amalfi Coast
Amalfi is a popular resort destination, but in April, you can truly enjoy it. Plan to spend time on the Path of the Gods, a hiking trail suspended between sky and sea, meandering mule tracks and vineyards with views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Or, book a special guided tour of local lemon gardens to taste lemon liqueurs.
Ischia is the largest island in the archipelago of the Campania region. If you're intrigued by volcanoes, this is the best time of year to enjoy trekking in mild temperatures and see volcanic activity.
In June, you're guaranteed sunny days and warm evenings, with very little humidity. Enjoy outdoor adventures like hiking and bike tours in the UNESCO-designated landscape , punctuated by a traditional lunch at a mountain rifugio .
July is high season almost everywhere in Italy, so if you're visiting during this month, contact your travel advisor far in advance.
Most Milanese locals are on holiday the entire month of August, so you can experience a truly private visit of places like Duomo di Milano cathedral after hours. The sunset views over the city are magical.
Following the busy summer months, September is the best time to cruise around La Maddalena archipelago, located in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The ideal way to experience the dramatic scenery of this island-dotted paradise: a private luxury yacht .
Be a Tuscan cowboy for the day at La Forra riding club , an equestrian haven located on a hilltop, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.
Southern Italy has a reputation for its friendly locals, and Puglia is no exception. When walking around the small towns, especially during the fall and winter months, it's easy to interact with the locals and feel like you're a part of the community. From a cultural point of view, Lecce should not to be missed — it's often called the "capital of the Baroque."
December: Sicily and Naples
Don't miss the chance to visit southern Italy’s Christmas markets. Each of them has its own specialty, offering handcrafted wooden gifts, ornaments, festive food, traditional clothing, local products like torrone , hot wine, and more.

Best Cruise Deals and Discounts sorted by your dream destination
Sometimes it's all about the destination and that is certainly true of cruise destinations. The cruise port you depart from and the amazing cruise ports you visit define your experience as much as what cruise line or cruise ship you sail on. At CruiseExperts.com we understand that and have sorted these cruises by the places you'll visit on your cruise vacation. So whether it's a cruise to Alaska, a Caribbean cruise, cruises to Hawaii, a cruise to the Bahamas or Bermuda or a cruise to Mexico you'll find it easily with the help of our destination wizard. Maybe you're looking for a cruise vacation that's just a little different like a Panama Canal cruise, a Transatlantic cruise, cruises to Europe, a Tahiti cruise with a tour of the South Pacific, a down under adventure with an Australia / New Zealand cruise or even a fall foliage cruise through Canada and New England. Whatever “floats your boat” get started by selecting your dream destination on our cruise search page .
Last Minute Cruises can sometimes be the cheapest cruise deal.
Sometimes, but not always, the cheapest cruise deal is a Last Minute Cruise. You won't get a wide selection of stateroom categories or a chance to select your stateroom location but if your schedule is flexible you just might find a cheap cruise price on a last minute cruise. Last minute cruises are cruises leaving in the next 90 days. The cruise line really wants to fill those last few staterooms and sometimes will offer them at a discount cruise price in exchange for you giving up your right to a full selection of cabin categories or deck locations. CruiseExperts.com makes it easy for you to poke around and see what's available in last minute cruise deals. View our Last Minute Cruise Deals by clicking here and give it a try. This is one of our most popular website features.
Cruise From Home and relax
Everyone knows that a cruise vacation is one of the most relaxing, hassle free vacations you can take. Imagine if you also didn't have to worry about traveling to start your vacation but could just drive up to a port near your home and get onboard your luxury cruise ship. Here at CruiseExperts.com we've made it easy to see which cruises start close to home. Get started with our Home Port widget by clicking on your home port below.

Russia’s main department store, the Moscow GUM is an ultimate architectural stunner, housing a variety of high-end boutiques. Built between 1890 and 1893 and known as the Upper Trading Rows until 1920, the legendary store is now home to over 200 boutiques selling a variety of brands: from luxury Dior to affordable Zara. Even if luxury shopping is not on your to-do list, the Moscow GUM is still worth a visit – the glass-roofed arcade faces Red Square, offers a variety of tasty Soviet-style eateries and makes a fantastic view in the dark.
Beautifully located in the historic centre of Moscow, the TSUM Department Store is mere steps from the city’s important tourist attractions, including Red Square. Built in 1908, the Gothic style store sells over 1000 famous brands, including Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Carolina Herrera. Much like its cousin GUM, the TSUM Department Store is known for its luxury boutiques, stunning architecture and great eateries.

Okhotny Ryad Shopping centre is yet another shopping mall in the proximity of Red Square, which unlike GUM and TSUM offers a more down-to-earth price tag. One of the largest shopping centres in Moscow, this underground arcade is home to over 160 brands of apparel, footwear, jewelry, makeup and perfumes. Okhotny Ryad is also known for its great food court, where most tourists come to stop by, once they’ve done a tour of the Kremlin .
Tsvetnoy Central Market
A pure hipster heaven, the Tsvetnoy Central Market, or simply Tsvetnoy is seven floors of shopping, eating and fun. From the high street ground floor to the deluxe boutiques on the fifth, Tsvetnoy sells brands for every taste and budget, including Walk of Shame, American Apparel, All Saints, and Vivienne Westwood. Awarded by multiple design accolades, the beautiful shopping mall is also home to many great pop-up shops, Moscow’s biggest Rive Gauche store and the best indoor farmer’s market in the city.
Somewhat farther from the city centre, AFIMALL City is a dramatically less crowded and very impressive shopping mall right in the heart of Moscow City Business District. Praised for its innovative design, the store comprises five levels of retail space with over 400 shops, 50 restaurants and cafés and an IMAX cinema. Built for adults and children alike, AFIMALL City is a must if you plan on visiting Moscow City Business District.
Metropolis Shopping Centre
Metropolis is where you should go for high-street retail if you don’t feel like traveling too far from the city centre. Home to boutiques like Zara, Marks & Spencer, H&M, New Yorker, GAP and River Island, Metropolis also houses a huge supermarket, bowling alley, swimming pool and a cinema.
Aviapark Shopping Centre
Of all the malls on the list, Aviapark takes the most time to get to, but Europe’s biggest mall is definitely worth the free shuttle bus ride. With over 500 stores, 80 eateries and a 17-screen cinema, all spread across the equivalent of 36 football pitches, Aviapark is officially the most popular shopping mall in Moscow. However, the major draw of the glass-roofed shopping centre is the 24-meter-tall pillar aquarium, filled with tropical fish.
