Fabulous small group tour
5 - Excellent
  • Michael Weiner
“This was a really great tour of the Amalfi coast. Our tour guide Enrico was amazing and knew so much about the area, restaurants and more! He made sure everyone was ok and had what they needed. Every day we walked to a different town. Be prepared... Hundreds of stone steps.... But all so beautiful!”
Loved it!

Italy Cultural Tours

Highlights of Italy Cultural Tours

  • Discover the treasures of Italian art cities, with skip-the-line access to renowned museums and iconic landmarks.
  • Delight in the wonders of Siracusa's archaeological park, take a fascinating journey through ancient history, and behold breathtaking views from Monte Etna, Europe's highest active volcano.
  • Discover the spiritual essence of Assisi as you meander through its historical streets, and uncover the beauty of its majestic churches and basiliche.
  • Unravel the cultural delights of Padua, renowned for the majestic Basilica di Sant’Antonio, one of the biggest churches in the world, and for the beautifully decorated Cappella degli Scrovegni, Giotto’s remarkable masterpiece.
  • Travel to the medieval enclave of San Marino, the third smallest State in Europe, a must-visit destination for history and culture enthusiasts. 

Travel tips for Cultural Tours in Italy

  • Secure your museum tickets a couple of weeks in advance, especially for popular attractions such as the ruins of Pompeii or the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.
  • Be aware that family-owned shops and artisanal laboratories in smaller countryside towns might operate on reduced hours and are typically closed between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Avoid tourist traps by seeking recommendations from locals or your tour guide.
  • Keep your belongings secure and avoid carrying valuable items in easily accessible pockets or bags.
  • Keep in mind that food is an integral part of Italian culture. Discover it by opting for authentic agriturismi and trattorie (i.e. traditional, family-owned Italian restaurants that offer simple, home-cooked meals), instead of commercial restaurant chains.
  • Ensure your clothing adheres to respectful dress codes (i.e. covering your shoulders and knees before entering churches and other religious buildings) when visiting religious sites or historic landmarks.
