You may have the universe if I may have Italy. ― Giuseppe Verdi
In order to immerse yourself in the culture and help you discover the essence of a place, we provide a full itinerary – we’ll see and do a lot, but also build in time to savor the flavor of the rich and diverse Italian culture.
May 2018 -- NOW RESERVING
In May we will visit Tuscany, just ahead of the peak tourism season. The weather is very pleasant, everything is in bloom and we’ll find treasures and seasonal goods at the open markets. A highlight of this itinerary is touring a Chianti vineyard and having dinner with the family who has run it for generations. We’ll spend time along the sea, visiting the fishing villages of the Cinque Terre and the famous Carrara marble quarry where Michelangelo sourced the white stone for his sculptures.
September 2018 -- FULL, WAITING LIST
Next September we’ll visit the beautiful Eternal City and head south to Positano. It’s a perfect time to visit – past the peak tourism season and the weather is lovely. With this itinerary we’ll visit Rome for some unbelievable history, culture and food. We’ll spend a day in Pompeii and see how this once-buried city has been excavated, then move on to the stunning Amalfi Coast for boat excursions, wine tastings and learning to make their local gnocchi alla sorrentina.
Cost for each tour, including winery tours and tastings, informational tours, cooking lessons, all accommodations and ground transportation, receptions, most meals (everything but air):
