We are delighted to offer a range of expert-led Italy tours that have received rave reviews.

Ancient wonders abound at every turn: vast theatres, magnificent temples and elegant colonnades. Ranging from the depths of prehistory right through to the modern day, the sites we visit reflect layer upon layer of civilisation. We explore these ancient worlds against the dynamic backdrop of modern Italian lifestyle, itself deeply grounded in tradition. The old juxtaposed against the new makes for a remarkable and entertaining contrast. Imagine exploring a baroque town in Italy on the local patron saint’s day: the sights, sounds and aromas of the here and now will be all around us as we delve into the rich remains of Italy’ past cultures and peoples.
Our Exploring Rome tour aims to offer a definitive experience of one of the world’s most celebrated cities, with its vast history ranging from antiquity to the present. Based in a hotel that is itself a historical building, it will include tours of the famous main sites, such as the Colosseum, the Forum or the Pantheon, but also of hidden gems. The jaw-dropping collections of the Capitoline and Vatican Museums will introduce our guests to key works of ancient art. The tour also includes excursions to the astonishingly well-preserved Roman port town of Ostia and to the Emperor Hadrian’s vast and luxurious villa at Tivoli. Additionally, there’ll be ample opportunity to savour Italy’s famous cuisine.
We have also been offering our Exploring Sicily tour ever since its first outing (to wide acclaim) in 2014. Alongside this cultural and archaeological tour of Sicily, we also run a fabulous food tour of Sicily, a gastronomic adventure that explores the cuisine and culture of this beautiful island.
As well as our scheduled Italy tours, we can also offer these as bespoke tour packages and gulet charters for private groups. Please let us know if you are interested or have any questions, or indeed if you have any suggestions for tours in Italy you’d like us to create.
