Are you thinking of holidaying in Italy with Bridgewater's Idyllic Italy this year? 

If so, it may please you to know that grabbing a slice of la dolce vita will now cost you less, because the pound has hit a 26-month high against the euro.

Just recently, sterling touched its highest versus the common currency since July 31st 2012, at a mighty 1.28.

What this means for you is that, when you hop over to Italy, you can do so with more spending money in euros, at no extra cost to you.

For example, let's say you want to spend 1,250 on your break. With that sum, you'd receive +180 now than if you'd exchanged currencies 18 months ago, in March 2013, when the pound was lower.

So with an extra +180 in your pocket, at no extra cost to you, you could extend your break in Italy, or splash out while you're there!

Why has the pound shot up? Well, it's because Scotland voted against independence last week, pointing to the UK's continued economic and political stability.

With this in mind, you can now visit Italy with extra spending money, thanks to the strong pound!
