We specialize in private family tours in Italy, custom designed cooking or walking tours for groups of friends, romantic weddings and honeymoons in Italy, or business meetings with team-building activities. Here are just a few of the activities we can plan for your custom tour:

Romp through the woods on a truffle hunt with a trifulau and his trusty dog in Piedmont

Shape cheese curds into plump provola in Sicily

Taste wine in a 14th century cellar and dine in a private home in Tuscany

Hike through knee-high wildflowers in the Dolomites, relax with spa treatments

Celebrate a wedding in a spectacular private garden on the Amalfi Coast

Watch marble sculptors at work in the Cinque Terre and walk to chic Portofino

Organize a business meeting in Siena or elsewhere



Let us create lasting memories for your family on a 3-10 day family tour in Italy, and see why some families have returned to travel with us 6 or 7 times! Explore great little towns, learn to shape cheese by hand, make chocolate and creamy cannoli, and bake bread in a wood-burning oven on our 3-day lively and fun Cook Sicily family tour. Rent a villa and enjoy day tours customized for your family, or stay at our favorite boutique hotels.

Italy has some of the most romantic landscapes in the world, which make the perfect setting for a fabulous wedding or a romantic honeymoon. Stunning hotels and great food and wine will make that special day simply extraordinary, along with plenty of activities for your guests - so you can enjoy your own wedding!


Our honeymoons in Italy offer the intimacy of hand-picked hotel rooms in our favorite hideaways, like Jame's Ivory's famous "Room with a View" in Florence, or a walk along the Pathway of the Gods and a private lunch overlooking Positano. If you love good food and wine our 2-3 Day Cooking Tours are the perfect beginning to married life, and can be extended to include a variety of activities. Call us to plan the wedding of your dreams or the honeymoon you will always remember.


Palio degli Asini 

Take a challenging hike to a smoking volcano in Sicily, cycle through Tuscany to a vineyard lunch, clip onto a thrilling via ferrata in the Dolomites, or zoom along the seaside by Vespa. Join in the fun and celebrate with the locals at one of Italy's amazing food festivals - the Free Fish Fry in Liguria, the Cheese Fair in Piedmont, the Onion Festival in Umbria - or one of the colorful hilarious events, like the Donkey Palio. Learn to make cheese in Sicily, comb a cashmere goat in Tuscany, or taste 25 year-old balsamic vinegar in Modena. Bring a group of friends or family and have a blast. We'll tailor your trip so there's never a dull moment. Minimum 6 people for 3 days.


Well-equipped conference centers in very comfortable hotels make for productive meetings, while our after-meeting group activities nurture a positive team-building spirit. Spouses will have a good time too, with hotel amenities and nearby activities such as spa services, golf, cooking lessons, countryside walks and cultural excursions.
