Luxury Travel Tailor Made

Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Certainly, you may plan you own tour, but we can help you plan your holiday better as we know Italy intimately!

How long do you plan to stay in Italy? How can you optimize your vacation? We are Italian travel planners and information consultants who know all about Italy.

Nowadays the notion of “customized itinerary” is way too popular and everyone seems to offer this service. But, there is a large difference between selling a customized itinerary and carefully arranging one. In order to arrange a customized tour, one needs the synergy of two skills: familiarity with the country (city, region etc) and the ability to assess and meet the needs of each client.

Direct contact with our clients is most important: we enquire about their interests, listen to their comments on our ideas, and take into consideration all aspects of their trip. We are not ‘last minute planners’.  We need to work with a bit of notice in order to have time to plan everything impeccably and to make sure that no small detail is overlooked.

Our guides are experts in each field (art historians, landscape designers, wine consultants etc.), are fluent in several languages, have experience in sharing their knowledge and are pleasant people to be with. We work with officially licensed guides only, those who are certified by each city they work in, in compliance with the strict Italian law on this matter. Also, we only use drivers who have the mandatory and necessary insurance and licenses.

We can offer you an unforgettable experience:

Cooking classes, Art classes (Painting, Photography), Artisan & Workshop classes (paper making, pottery, glass, silver, ice cream), Perfume making, Shopping Tours, Private collections, gardens and private openings of public museums: Thanks to very extensive contacts in many cities, but particularly Florence and Rome, we can offer access to private collections and gardens closed to the public.
