Explore the Best of the Mediterranean

In our daily lives, we look for work/life balance. The same idea should be applied to a vacation...

So instead of work/life balance, let's call it touring/free-time balance. It means finding the ideal pace. Il tempo giusto, as the Italians would say, the "right tempo" of life; or vacation, in this case.

On a Mediterranean vacation, this is achieved by combining spectacular sight-seeing with the time to relax and take it all in. Some space to discover your own personal relationship with a place without missing any of the incredible sites, monuments, and historic treasures.

Because seriously, Italy wouldn't be Italy if encountered at a frenzied pace. Sure, the drivers in Rome are pazzi (crazy), but in general, the Italians make a deliberate effort to slow down and enjoy life. So should we, especially on vacation.

Charming Hotels

We have hand-selected the hotels to showcase the best of Italian hospitality, in prime locations, so you'll feel the warm Italian ambiance at every moment of your stay.

Authentic Cuisine

If you don't experience the genuine, local specialties, then you haven't experienced Italy. I have made an extra effort to ensure that every meal represents the authentic cucina.

Professional Guides

The reason to tour with professionals is that you're assured you won't miss out on any of the wonderful moments that you've dreamed about vacationing in Italy.

This is the reason to work with professionals. We do all the worrying while you simply relax and enjoy.
With the Internet these days, you "could," in theory, plan a trip to Italy yourself. Besides being a lot of work, you could easily make several planning mistakes along the way costing you time, money, and worst of all, enjoyment. That would be a real shame, and we won't let it happen to you.
