Italy Tours & Vacations

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. Our Italy tours & vacations are all about strolling down cobbled lanes in city backstreets and ancient walled villages in search of la dolce vita. Once here, the opportunities are endless – from 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.

Highlights of Italy in Winter

Meredith · Traveled March 2024
I loved this trip! I appreciate that Intrepid offers small groups up to 12 compared to some of the larger tours. I went in March and had beautiful weather, with temps mostly in the 50s and 60s Fahrenheit, so it didn't even feel "wintry." There is generally a planned activity in the morning and free time in the afternoon (or vice versa), so be prepared to do some organizing of your own activities, but the guide is helpful in offering suggestions and answering questions, and it's nice to have a balance between organized activities and being able to do your own thing. I thought the accommodations were good, not the most luxurious but fine given the budget of this trip. It is a lot of walking, so be prepared for that. If you're looking to see the main highlights of Italy with some guidance and company, but still a lot of flexibility and independence, this is a great trip for you!

Highlights of Italy in Winter

This was a fun, informational trip that provided a introduction to Italy. My favorite were the pasta making class and Venice. This is a winter trip and we had good weather for most of the trip but winter in Italy is far better then winter on the prairies in Canada where I am from. If you decide to book this adventure I hope you enjoyed as much as I did.
