Our vacation packages cover all your major needs (other than lunch & dinners) from the day you arrive in Italy until the day you depart. We offer what we call “Semi-Private Vacations”, this means you don’t travel as part of a group you travel independently!
All the transfers, hotels and train tickets are dealt with on a private basis just for you. The only time you’ll be with other tourists will be when you’re taking one of our popular small group tours.
When you travel from one city to another we'll be there to take care of all your needs on a private basis just for you! Our small group tours have been designed to give our clients a rich and detailed introduction to the cities visited, and you'll never have to waste a moment standing-in-line.
Staying at selected hotels that we feel offer our clients the best value for their money, you’ll appreciate what we mean by “Quality Vacations at affordable prices”.
