You're thinking of a vacation in Italy. But how do you decide where to go?

You do not want a cliched itinerary for Italy, the same well trodden trail that the tourist hordes follow like sheep. You want something unique, after all a trip to Italy is expensive and it should be extra special.

Why waste your money and feel disappointed?

  • We'll even let you in on some of our favorite little family-run restaurants, serving traditional cooking just like you'd experience at home with an Italian mamma or nonna.
  • Tours, sight-seeing etc.... we've all that covered.

How long should a typical Italian itinerary be?

Our answer to that is the longer the better ;-)
