You can set your budget, destinations, activities, and preferences. We can make your trip completely comfortable, hassle free, and ripe with local flavour. We can plan your stay in Tuscan agriturismi, Sicilian villas, country retreats or picturesque villages, of varying degrees of luxury but all authentic and exclusive.
Below are some examples of the tours we can organise for you, you friends and your family. You need to be a minimum of 6 people. These are places where Giovanna and her team can show you an amazing time in extrordinary, off the beaten track destinations that only the locals know about. If you have a dream Italian destination in mind which is not on our list feel free to ask: Giovanna's networks extend far beyond these locations, and she has traveled Italy extensively.
This is your chance to see Italy with your family, friends, colleagues, team, employees, in ways you can only do when you know a local. Tell us what your ideal holiday entails and we'll make it happen for you!
