Thinking of a trip to Italy?

Whether it is your first trip to Italy or your 20th, a trip to Italy is a big event.  Each trip has it's own set of expectations.  We can fulfill them. 

Italy has beautiful larger cities and countless smaller beautiful possibilities. Venice, Florence and Rome are usually included in a first trip to Italy.  Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are also favorites.  Cinque Terre becoming fairly well known and has managed to maintain the beauty and charm it has always offered.  Imagine being in Vatican City after hours.  Imagine a cooking class in Sicily with a Michelin starred chef.  Imagine touring Tuscany in a vintage Alfa Romeo.  We can make all of these things happen.

Are you wanting a completely guided trip where you don't have to think about a single thing?  Are you wanting to navigate trains and be completely independent?  We can help either way.  We even have various choices between the two.
