If you seek a richer experience for your luxury summer holiday this year, why not banish the beachside boredom in favour of a little culture or a thrilling driving tour?

With culinary classes, fine wines, Ferrari-fuelled adventure and a soupçon of cultural flavour in Milan, we have compiled a sophisticated list of European delights to suit every taste. So, why not escape and be inspired this summer, with Elegant Resorts.
