Were you ready with New Year’s resolutions when the clock struck midnight and it was time to welcome 2016? We have brainstormed some inspired ways our vacation experiences in Italy can help you to keep your New Year’s resolutions.

After all, it’s easy to set goals for a New Year but it takes special commitment to keep resolutions! In Italian we say, “A chi vuole, non mancano modi” - which is roughly where there is a will there’s a way!

Here’s how we envision Italy Tours and Italy Vacation Packages helping keep some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions people make:

Get fit this year

Did you resolve that 2016 is the year you’ll get active and healthy? Sure, you can get a membership at a gym. But you could also carefully plan a vacation experience in Italy that includes several of Avventure Bellissime’s popular Italy walking tours - and in the weeks leading up to your Italian holiday you could make a point of walking regularly (if it’s too cold where you live don’t forget you can walk around malls and stay warm and dry!).

So often people start exercising and then lose momentum on vacation. But if you plan to enjoy some of our fascinating excursions like the Original Venice Ghost & Legends Walking Tour, Small Group Classic Ancient Rome Walking Tour, or Private Hidden Florence Walk we think you’ll be several thousand (joyful!) steps closer to your fitness goal.

Learn something new

Many times people resolve to learn a new language or subject like art or history. If this is one of your resolutions imagine the jumpstart a well-planned Italy vacation would give you!

Naturally Italy is steeped in art, history, and culture. You can brush up on Italian phrases and get plenty of practice on a trip to Italy (learn some of the basics in our 7 tips for getting the most out of your Italian vacation blog). Everywhere, in churches, museums, and galleries, there are astounding works of art from so many periods to see and learn about. There are opportunities to increase your understanding of painting and sculpture in all the major cities and countless small villages, making Italy a dream vacation for any art enthusiast.

If history is your passion, you can start with the ruins of Ancient Rome or the ancient ruins of Pompeii - or perhaps the Romanesque Cathedral and famed leaning tower at Pisa or the historic canals and heritage buildings of Venice. If you enjoy literature, consider tracing the impact of Italy’s celebrated poet Dante during his lifetime and throughout the generations since his death. More of a car enthusiast? Check out our Italy vacations for car lovers and get to know Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, and Ducati a little better. The possibilities to expand your mind are limitless!

Spend more time with family

Life is hectic and so many of us resolve to improve our work-life balance. When was the last time you took a proper family holiday? Italy is very family friendly, making any destination in our country a great place to reconnect and enjoy some adventures together (and of course Italy’s diverse regional cuisine offers selections even the pickiest family members will love!).

If your family is on a budget, don’t give up hope! If you start planning now you can set reasonable travel goals. Remember that there are benefits and savings when you travel to Italy during the off-season and if you check our website you’ll find seasonal special offers on our Italy tours and vacation packages. We have many ideas to help you reach your New Year’s resolution of travel to Italy before 2017!

Make time for romance

Why do you think the legendary Romeo was Italian? Because Italians understand the importance of romance and relationship! You can plan a romantic Valentine’s Day in Italy with your sweetheart, book a memorable romantic summer Italy vacation, or enjoy a romantic fall getaway to Italy. Romance is welcome here all year round - and not only is Italy the perfect wedding or honeymoon destination, but also a terrific place to rekindle romance on your anniversary.

Enjoy life more

Italians don’t live to work, they work to live! It’s a key difference evident in the importance of family and friends, celebration of good food and fine art, and year round festivals and celebrations. Whether you’re planning your first Italy vacation or planning a return trip to Italy, you can be certain that you can vivi la vita al massimo (live life to the fullest). We predict you just might fall in love with everything Italy has to offer and bring some inspiration back home with you! You just might decide to regularly cool down with delicious Italian gelato or stay warm with authentic Italian coffee.
