IT IS ITALY..

An Unforgettable Tour of Italy's History, Culture and Cuisine

Take the road less travelled on one of our Italy tours, which explore stone-paved city streets and winding country lanes to bring you an authentic Italian experience. With a group size of 18 people or fewer, our escorted holidays introduce you to the celebrated history, culture and cuisine that Italy has to offer, as well as unearth some of its best-kept secrets.

Whether you’re interested in Roman ruins suspended in time, soaring medieval Cathedrals or lavish Renaissance villas, a tour of Italy will more than satisfy any history buff. Our passionate and knowledgeable group leaders will help to bring history alive as they explain the significance of the sites you marvel over.

Walk the eerie streets of Pompeii, frozen by the might of Mount Vesuvius in the first century AD in Enchanting Southern Italy, or explore the incredible Valley of the Temples in Sicily’s ancient Greek town of Agrigento. Two of our Italy tours tilt their heads in wonder at the gravity-defying Leaning Tower of Pisa, while the magnificent Cathedrals of Turin, Milan, Siena, Amalfi and Taormina pepper the itineraries of our Italy holidays.

Sounds exhausting? Don’t worry, all of our holidays are conducted at a leisurely pace, allowing you to soak up the atmosphere and immerse yourself in the local culture. We allocate plenty of free time for you throughout our Italy tours, so that you can explore the locations at your own pace or simply relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the Italian sunshine.

Each tour of Italy, from the Lakes and Mountains of Italy and Switzerland in the north to the Splendours of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea, gives a fascinating insight into the region’s specific cultural heritage. Our holidays give you hands-on experience of these characteristically Italian traditions, whether hunting for the finest truffles with specially-trained dogs in Alba, or admiring the hand-painted, brightly-coloured ceramics made by the master craftspeople of Vietri sul Mare.
