Perhaps you wish to enjoy the spring serenity of Sicily or the milder, misty climes of the Tuscan hills in Autumn. Perhaps you are after that cosy B&B or the all-inclusive seaside resort. Perhaps the city apartment or the luxury villa. Whether you wish to experience the art and culture of Italy or head off the beaten track unearthing inaccessible villages or exploring new gems while of course savouring legendary wines and enjoying regional foods. Let us guide you and create a bespoke and unique trip to Italy which has so much to offer.  


Our main objective is to take care of you. We do not have set packages as our trips to Italy are unique and shaped to your specific requirements. ​ They are as far from the run of the mill tour as the Brenner Pass is from the island of Pantelleria.  All we need to know is how long you wish to be away, indicative dates and budget, and an idea of what you wish to experience.  All you then need to do is to leave the rest to us.

​​Our consultants are all Italian and know the country inside out and will help you create the perfect experience, from discovering the art and culture of Italy to touring off the beaten track and unearthing inaccessible villages, exploring new gems while of course savouring legendary wines and enjoying the regional foods.  Perhaps you wish to enjoy the spring serenity of Sicily or the milder, misty climes of the Tuscan hills in autumn. Whether you are after the cosy B&B or the all-inclusive resort, the city apartment, or the luxury pad, we have a vast selection on offer.  Whatever your reasons for travelling to Italy, whether your wish is to indulge, unwind, learn or discover, play or simply relax, all you need to do is to let us know and allow us to create the perfect itinerary. We take away all the stress and ensure that our bespoke proposals do not miss out on the essentials and the tiniest of detail. We ensure that your trip is exquisitely planned, allowing you to fully enjoy yourself as soon as your feet touch the ground. Whether you are after a slow Italy,  just wish to relax and indulge, perhaps a multi-centre trip where you want to take in as much of Italy as possible, or perhaps you are after that weekend getaway or wish to enjoy an opera, a football or rugby match or perhaps one of the many exhibitions available...... ​​Forget trawling those websites, and holiday brochures, talk to us, email, or fill in our form below and we promise to create a truly bespoke Italian experience, the one you have always wanted but have never known where to start.

This web site has been designed to show off the endless possibilities available to you.
