Italy holds some of the most cherished treasures in the world. From lush accommodations and spectacular selections of food and wine, to stunning masterpieces of art and fashion, there is great amounts of pleasures to offer. The Italians pride themselves on these magnificent treasures, but thankfully there is much more that your average traveler doesn't get to see.
When it comes down to it, there’s so much more to Italy than the eye sees. There are layers and layers, physical and metaphorical, that we believe to be relevant to our existence today. Imagine walking in the streets of Rome in the height of the Roman Empire, then as you turn on a new street, you suddenly jump to the late 15th Century and feel the inspiration of Renaissance. This is the historically power of Italy at work. Yet the wonder of this magnificent country isn’t simply limited to Rome, the whole country is steeped in as much history and significance as it’s champion city.
We have a special relationship to Italy, we believe there is so much more that people can even imagine and we want to show you.
