What Can Envy Do For You!

Envy Italy Magazine and website is all about the BEST and most Luxurious elements Luxury Italy has to offer in 5-star Travel, Hotels, Lifestyle, Experiences, Spas, Sport, Fashion, Wine and Dining, Investment, Culture and Art.

The concept grew from two business women, who both had discerning clients who requested high end luxury accommodation and experiences in Italy. While both women could find lots of information, venues and experiences for the midrange and budget markets, they both struggled in finding a source where they could refer their big budget and once-in-a-lifetime clients.

When their paths crossed and their mutual problem shared they decided to make it easier for the high-end luxury seeking traveller to Italy to find what they needed to enjoy the best of Italy to the fullest.

And so Envy Italy was born!
