About Italy

“You can have the universe, if I can have Italy.” – Giuseppe Verdi

When you dream about Italy and imagine yourself on the perfect Italy tour, what do you picture? Probably the amazing historic sites of Rome; a slow, romantic boat ride through the canals of Venice; opera in Milan; and sparkling, snowy winters in the Italian Alps.

Italy has earned a reputation as one of the most beautiful and romantic countries in Europe. Can’t you just imagine yourself on one of our magnificent Italy tours, throwing coins in the Trevi Fountain, feeding the pigeons in St. Mark’s Square, or strolling the lush, green vineyards of the Tuscan countryside? When you ask Tour Italy Now to help you plan your Italian trip, your itinerary can include all that and more.

Italy is truly a multi-faceted vacation destination and you can be assured that our lifelong family association and many visits there have taught us more about Italy than most. In adventurous Italy, you’ll explore the country’s wilder side. Thanks to the varied terrain, adventure vacationers can enjoy a variety of active pursuits. A tour of Italy might include a visit to the island of Sardinia for some of the best diving in the world. While you’re there, stop at one of the island’s quaint fishing villages and buy the freshest catch-of-the-day from a local merchant.

If you prefer the mountains to the sea, another of our specially designed Italian tour experiences might find you shushing down the mountains or donning a pair of snowshoes in the magnificent Dolomites. Imagine staying in a chalet in a storybook village high in the Alpine mountains…

When you visit historic Italy, sightseeing in the city of Rome is a must. In the capital, our Italy vacation tours will take you to world famous sites like the Forum, the Collosseum, and the Vatican. In Milan, you can take in an opera at La Scala or see the “real” Last Supper at the Church of Santa Maria della Grazie.

Want to explore artsy Italy? Then a sightseeing tour in Florence should be on your itinerary. Known as the gateway to Tuscany, a stop in Florence will take you to opulent museums, ornate churches, and much more.

Would you prefer to spend your time in romantic Italy? Then head to the land of canals for romantic stay in Venice. In this unique city, you’ll travel by vaporetti through the waters of time as you explore places like the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Basilica, the Academy Gallery, and the Bridge of Sighs.

Festivals abound in beautiful, vibrant Italy so there’s always a party to enjoy! Your tour of Italy might take you to the commemoration of Good Friday in Grassina, Carnavale in Viareggio, the Feast of St. John in Florence, or the Barcolana Autumn Cup sailboat race in Trieste. Or perhaps you’ll tour the Italian countryside for a small town harvest festival in Tuscany, an annual Christmas market in Calabria, or a downhill race in Torino.

Wherever you want to travel in Italy, no matter the time of year, you can be sure that the sights will be breathtaking, the scenery awesome, and the people friendly and eager to welcome you. At Tour Italy Now, every one of our tours are designed to help you experience a little of everything Italy has to offer. If you prefer a tour that is customized especially for you, we can help with that too. When you need information about Italy and the many travel options available, you can rely on our knowledge and experience.

Arrivederci! It’s time to explore Italy!
