Italy has it all. Greek temples in Sicily. The ancient glories of Rome. The renaissance painters, sculptors and architects in Florence. Dramatic baroque art in Naples. The Venice Biennale. Contemporary art adventures in Milan. The landscape stretches from the mountains and lakes of the North to the rolling hills of Tuscany, down to the dramatic Amalfi coastline and out to Sicily and the volcanic Aeolian islands. And then there is the food and the wine. It is no surprise Italy is our most popular destination.
Our guides in Italy include art historians, writers and artists. We design tours from weekend escapes to month long immersive journeys. Wherever you go we can organise museum visits out of hours, open the doors to private collections and artists’ studios, as well as take you to some of Italy’s best restaurants and vineyards. The adventure is yours to imagine – whether you want a mix of culture and time out or are looking to explore a particular place. We will take care of every detail: a bespoke itinerary, superb guides, private visits, all travel arrangements, hotels, villas and restaurants.
