Over 60 percent of the world’s art treasures are found in Italy.Tours-and-Sightseeing

Not to mention the country’s celebrated fashion and design, spectacular gardens and breathtaking landscapes. Yet with such abundance, even the most seasoned traveler can have trouble choosing an itinerary. Italy by Design will handpick locations and activities that correspond to your interests and budget. Are you a garden enthusiast? How about a tour of the Villa d’Este with a garden expert? A fashionista? A visit to the Ferragamo museum in Florence followed by an afternoon of shopping at the Prada outlet may be right up your alley. An archeology buff? How does exploring the hidden underground treasures of ancient Rome with an archeologist sound? In addition to private tours with experts in their field, we can also help with independent pursuits: sightseeing ideas, detailed daily itineraries, hiking and biking arrangements with trail maps and suggested routes, shopping recommendations, museum reservations and walking tours that you can do on your own. Our in-depth knowledge of Italy and our personal contacts, acquired through years of invaluable experience, will put you in the right place at the right time.
