JOIN ONE OF OUR 2019 SMALL GROUP TOURS TO ITALY


There are many tour companies and trips to Italy, but the Italian Cultural Society's travel team are Italy Specialists. We've taken thousands of travelers ONLY to Italy for over 30 years. See what a difference experience, knowledge and passion make!

Travelers discover Italy in the company of a native Italian and enjoy many things tourists seldom get the chance to experience. Enjoy lunch on a magnificent hillside olive oil estate, walk or bike on the walls of Lucca and enjoy a Puccini concert in the town where the composer was born. Visit the Ferrari museum and see the production of the king of cheeses, Parmigiano. Visit a private Amarale Estate and meet the countess whose family has produced this noble wine for centuries. These are but a few of the experiences awaiting you when you travel with us to Italy.

A magnificent blend of incredible natural, beauty, history, art, culture, architecture, wines, and food all await the traveler in Italy, as well as a way of life that inspires travelers long after they return home. Almost every one of our travelers goes on more than one of our tours, and some take the same tour several times - they are the best testament of just how spectacular our tours are!
