It is no surprise that Italy is our most popular destination. It is unequalled in the richness of its art and architecture. It is unmatched in the freshness and simplicity of its food. It is so varied in landscape and custom that the visitor faces a myriad of wonderful possibilities. The Italians meet you with kindness and generosity at every turn. Our founder, James McDonaugh, is a leading expert on Italian art and culture and has led over 120 tours there personally.
