Follow your expert, English-speaking guide through the quieter streets and piazzas of Venice.

You’ll see the house where Desdemona supposedly lived before her tale was transcribed by an Italian author and stolen by a man called William Shakespeare.

The Northern Regions

Select A Territory

The north is the Italy tourists are most familiar with. It's a land of fine wine--especially in Piemonte, Fruili and the Veneto regions. Residents exhibit a preference for Polenta over pasta and butter over olive oil. The land spills from Alpine foothills into lakes and fertile valleys. Summer temperatures make the north the idea place for a mid-year vacation; take in a performance in the Roman Arena of Verona, a cooking class in Venice, or learn how they make Prosecco, the world's most popular sparkling wine.

We partner with incredible wineries in every region in Italy. Enjoy excursions from Florence to the countryside, where our private chauffeurs will whisk you away through the rolling hills to a breathtaking winery with a panoramic view. There enjoy 5 premiums reds, the owner himself will walk you through their process while his wife will cook you homemade pasta. Or, enjoy a crisp bottle of prosecco in a castle a little north of Venice. If you prefer the south, perhaps a bottle of Grillo on the side of Mt. Etna? That’s just the tip of the ice burg, the options are limitless.
