Discover the Flavours of Italy
ABOUT OUR TOURS
Our intimate journeys are created to introduce you to the truly authentic Italy we visit. We are unique in our local expertise - from the exceptional lodging, the unique itineraries and fascinating history, to the amazing foods and wines we find along the way. Our mission is to offer you an organized tour that is anything but ordinary.
We feature the real Italy, not only through the sites, art and history, but more importantly, through the people and their traditions. The Italy of Italian people. Our strength is our deep knowledge of and love for our country.
I would like to share my passion for Italy and its culture by inviting you to explore and experience its excellences.
