Join us on one of our fully escorted, small group tours

Real cultural experiences on Italian time.

Italian Tours offers boutique, small group, fully escorted tours to Italy, giving you the time and opportunity to immerse yourselves in the culture and gain a unique travel experience.


We organise tours to northern and central Italy, in small groups, in quality surrounds, at a slow pace.


We’re about cultural appreciation, about experiencing society’s richness and the diversity of the people who are part of it.


We’re about listening, seeing and speaking the language, about markets and wine bars, cafés, local cuisine.


We travel on Italian time – a minimum of 3 nights in any location to allow you to unpack and get to know the place, plenty of time for coffee breaks and long meals to be savoured in good company, free time to head off on your own and absolutely no calls of “on the bus by 7am”!


We pride ourselves on really looking after our guests; our knowledgable Italian tour leader has all the information to allow you to get the most out of your visit and no detail is too small for us to consider.
