Small Group Tours

Get in step with the rhythm of the seasons on a revelatory learning tour in the breathtaking Italian countryside. You can enjoy every moment of your vacation without the stress of planning, while we show you an Italy that even a dedicated traveller would never find. Our 7- to 14-day tours give you time to participate in traditional methods of harvesting and preparing some of Italy's most sought after products, like olive oil, cheese, honey, bread and wine — you'll discover depths of flavour you never knew existed. In a land inhabited for millennia, artisans of the past have left a rich heritage of art, architecture, music, gardens and traditional crafts for you to admire. In the company of a few like-minded companions (maximum 10 people) you will be welcomed into the homes and workshops of artisans and experience the vitality of rural life while mingling with the locals at village festivals and dining at the best family restaurants. You return home with a new appreciation, a new perspective and memories to last a lifetime.
