The food, the wine, the shopping and the breathtaking scenery all make Italy a destination on the bucket list of many and with good reason.
The country has just been voted top of the list in the Travel Leaders Group 2018 Luxury Destination.
In the Travel Leaders Group survey of its agents, approximately 34 percent voted Italy as the number one luxury destination, followed by European River Cruises, the United States, Ireland, Australia, Mexico, Caribbean Cruises, France and Iceland.
The survey also found an increase in the amount of luxury bookings, with Travel Leaders Group CEO Ninan Chacko explaining, “Given the strong U.S. economy, it’s no surprise that our agents are seeing a higher level of luxury bookings compared to last year. Some people are scaling up their vacations to include high-end accommodations and exclusive experiences and others are simply taking more trips because of their confidence in the economy.”
“Italy, a perennial favorite destination for all travelers, truly hits home for high-net worth travelers seeking unique, enriching experiences from food and wine, art galleries, or designer shopping,” Chacko revealed of the top pick. “Additionally, cruising in Europe continues to gain in popularity and availability.”
