Luxury Holidays in May

There is an array of options for luxury travel in May, centred around destinations in the northern hemisphere.

Italian cities are ideal for a luxury weekend break, with Rome and Florence enticing international visitors to sample iconic cultural treasures, centuries-old architecture, excellent shopping opportunities and magnificent regional cuisine and wine. Take advantage of the two May Bank Holidays and arrange a long weekend as a couple or with friends. In northern Italy, Lake Como is very pretty in May, with abundant spring flowers and colour.

Elsewhere in Europe, the coastal city of Porto in Portugal boasts a pleasant climate in May and is perfect for sightseeing and sampling its iconic port wine. From here, you can extend your holiday by taking a river cruise through Douro Valley, producer of some of Portugal's finest wines. By contrast, Cyprus is ideal for a luxury May Half Term beach holiday with the family.

In South America, Peru experiences some of its driest weather in May – the perfect month to visit its cosmopolitan cities, traverse magnificent countryside on a luxury rail journey and discover iconic Machu Picchu. The wildlife and scenery of the remote Galapagos Islands continues to dazzle. Take a luxury expedition cruise to better discover the archipelago and its diverse flora and fauna.

May is also the perfect time to discover the USA’s mesmeric Deep South, while a New England road trip is a great option for couples wishing to discover magnificent mansions, along with British colonial and maritime history. By May, the ski season in Canada has concluded, revealing a colourful green and blue tapestry of pine forests, spring flowers and crystal-clear lakes, bound by imposing mountains. Head there now to avoid the crowds who flock to it in the summer.

For something entirely different, a luxury beach holiday to Mauritius or the Seychelles is unbeatable in May. For couples getting married this month, the Indian Ocean is perfect for a romantic tropical honeymoon.
