The Real Italian Experience

Here’s how we’re different

We just do Italy.  For 23 years we’ve hosted hundreds of photographers, painters and foodies and their partners in 8 regions of Italy.  Most of our guests return for more tours.

Our “staff” is a bunch of old friends, half Americans, half Italians.  We all share a love of Italy, but also this crazy love for sharing authentic experiences with like-minded travelers.

On our tours you’ll settle in and stay longer in each place.  You’ll mingle with local characters, eat and drink the real thing.  That means less time shlepping bags – more free time in the village.

Small group sizes?  Of course (6-12).  Dirt roads, yes.  Tour buses and forced marches, no thanks.

We’re pretty sure you’ll like the differences.

For Destination Snobs

We carefully select locations where you can still find yourself immersed in local culture have authentic experiences.  Tasting wines on a private patio, driving the back roads, gourmet picnics on the rivers’s edge,  these experiences add depth to our visits.    

Yes, we see the famous places too, but always on our way to some hidden treasure.
