At Italy Beyond the Obvious, all tours are private and custom, created for the traveler based on their interests and budget. After you contact us, we’ll have some questions for you. We want to know about your interests, when you’d like to go to Italy, whether you’ve been before, and what you’d like to see and do on this trip. We treat every client’s trip as a separate project, and we use project planning software and a specific planning process for each trip so that every trip flows smoothly and is stress-free.
Whether you’re working with us for just seven days for a Coaching Session, or doing the basic Gold Travel Planning Service or the soup-to-nuts Platinum Travel Planning Service, we’ll give you excellent and tailored suggestions, following the planning process we know results in a fantastic trip!
Although we can create any type of trip, we do have some particular areas of strength.
We’d love to create a luxury Italy itinerary for you! Whether you’re looking for a five-star hotel or a luxury yet authentic countryside villa, we’ll recommend and book fantastic accommodations, top-notch private guides and exclusive experiences, and even make restaurant reservations. We’ll be available during your trip if you need help. And of course we’ll work within a budget. Click here to read more about our luxury Italy tours.
We love kids and kids love Italy! Italy is a fantastic place for a family vacation for kids from infants through college-aged. We’ll book activities that will keep everyone engaged and happy, and we bet the kids will come home having learned about history and art and architecture without even realizing it.

Italy is a fantastic place for a couples vacation, whether it be a honeymoon, a wedding anniversary trip, or a vacation to enjoy spending time together. Visit Italy’s main sights with private guides, go for bike rides or hikes or ride a vespa in the countryside, taste wine at vineyards in some of Italy’s famous wine regions such as Chianti or the Valpolicella or Piedmont or Umbria. Get off the beaten track in Sicily or explore the iconic towns of the Amalfi Coast or the Cinque Terre, ending the day with a glass of wine and the sunset.
