We are committed to creating the Italian experience of a lifetime – exclusively for you!
After an initial conversation, we will go to work and offer you our expertise as we put together your dream vacation. With an itinerary approved by you, we will source the very best accommodations, guides and transportation to fulfill your request. Additionally, we will include behind the scenes and exclusive experiences that will make your trip unforgettable. How about a celebratory dinner in a 12th-century monastery? A photo walk with a local photographer who can lead you off the tourist path and to the real heart of Italy? Would you like to rent a luxury sports car and spend the day driving through the Tuscan hills?
When you book a trip with us we open our Rolodex and reach out to our wonderful friends and collaborators who will make sure that your trip exceeds all your wildest dreams. Our service continues throughout your trip as we offer 24/7 support in case you think of additional experiences you would like or for any reason you need to make changes to your itinerary. Book with us and you will have the peace of mind of our service – it is like having a personal concierge with you throughout your stay in Italy. We do the heavy lifting and leave the enjoyment to you! Buon Viaggio!
We recommend that the process begin 9-12 months before you want to go to Italy. It’s never too early to start – and the planning is half the fun. Contact us today and we will turn your dreams into experiences.
I want to thank you so much for creating a one-of-a-kind experience for us – this was honestly the best two weeks of our lives! Absolutely loved all of it – the food, the wine, the beauty…unreal. I still cannot fathom half of what we saw and did.
You’ve ruined us forever and I hope you have friends that do what you do in other countries because I can’t imagine trying to go it alone again.

Italy Beyond the Guidebook
We believe that the best way to see Italy is with a local resident expert, someone who can impart information not only on the art, architecture, and history of the city but also the contemporary life and culture.
We hire exceptional guides who will enhance your experience and will help you make the most of your time with skip the line tickets, personal insights and information you will not find in any guide book.
food & wine
“At the table with good friends and family, you do not become old.” – Italian proverb
You can’t talk about Italy without talking about the culinary scene. We always give our guests recommendations for restaurants and cafes in each city. But if you would like a more in-depth exploration of the cuisine of Italy – it is an integral part of the culture – we also arrange tasting tours, vineyard visits, cooking classes, market tours and more.
Learn the way of the Italians through food. It’s a win – win! Buon appetito!
We had an amazing trip from start to finish. Ashley organized flawless transportation, great hotels, and perfect tours. We are looking forward to working with her on our next trip to Italy.

Italy means something different to everyone and there is more to Italy than Michelangelo and the Last Supper.
For the more adventurous types, Italy is actually perfect. Cycling tours through the hills of Tuscany, day hikes on the Path of the Gods on the Amalfi Coast, Horseback Riding in Umbria, Hot Air Balloon Rides, Boat Charters.
Our active experiences give you insights to a whole other side of la dolce vita. They are a great way to slow down and really soak everything in.
arts & culture
“The Creator made Italy from designs by Michelangelo.”
– Mark Twain
Art & Culture (whatever that means to you) has been drawing tourists to Italy for centuries. There is no denying the genius of the masters – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi. While you can see their masterpieces in virtually – who hasn’t gazed in awe at the David statue – there is something transformational about seeing them in real life. To walk around a sculpture, to get three feet from a painting or mosaic, to climb a dome that defied physics when it was built centuries ago. There is no substitute.
And pair this with the vivacious and hospitable culture of Italy and the Italians: believe me, you will never want to leave.
