Be it wine-tasting, painting, cooking, bird watching, yoga or photography our holidays are run by the experts. Trips may be solely aimed at those with an interest in one subject or a range of subjects, and include gastronomy tours, specialist archaeology itineraries, solar eclipse departures, specialist conservation holidays or trips led in Italian.
Our profound knowledge of Italy, its people and the possibilities it offers for special trips makes us the perfect choice for a special vacation ! Even more than with our regular group tours, the tour leader is key to providing the best experience possible. We have the extensive knowledge and experience to gather together expert leaders in many different fields.
For example, on many tours you learn something about the geology of the area, but this is never like being on a real geology tour. Discover Italy’s intriguing geological history, it’s volcanoes, but also its limestone cliffs, it’s grotto’s and underground rivers.
While most people take photographs when on holiday, not all holidays are specifically designed for photographers. Learn more about it in Italy – the subject is good, you get the technique right and you’ll make professional shots!
