Italy Tours & Holidays

Cruise canals, peruse piazzas, veer towards the Vatican and polish off the perfect pizza.

Italy may be one of Europe's most-visited countries, but finding your way around Venice’s canals, choosing the best place for gelato in Rome and knowing your agnello from your agnolotti are skills best learned from locals. Between tasting balsamic vinegar in a traditional acetaia in Modena and sailing past pastel-hued cliffside villages on the Amalfi Coast to sampling local wine in Tuscany's vineyards and admiring lesser-known Renaissance art in Florence, one thing's for sure: you won’t be going hungry.

Italy Experience

Susan · Traveled May 2024
Great trip with plenty of free time to explore. The cities are busy but if you get off the main streets just a little and away from the tourist areas, you will find it a lot quieter and see more of the local life. We had a great group and our tour leader Desi was highly organised, friendly, fun and informative.

Italy: Highlights of Sicily

Louise · Traveled May 2024
A great introduction to Sicily with Gabriella, a wonderful tour leader, and a lovely group. This tour had the perfect mix of free time and organised tours. Highlights include the anti-mafia tour in Palermo, the Valley of the Temples and Siracusa to name but a few. A suggestion is to reduce the length of the Mount Etna "lava tour" to max 3 hours or less, and have longer for lunch.
