Art and Culture
Possibly Italy’s biggest draw is its incredible amount of art, architecture, and culture. With roots that can be traced back to one of the world’s earliest empires, Italy’s history makes it a travel destination with unprecedented culture at every turn.
Between almost 40 UNESCO World Heritage sites, countless legendary cathedrals and churches, and numerous art museums, travelers have endless options to choose from when planning a customized trip. Unlike a pre-packaged vacation, our personalized art and culture trips are unique to each traveler’s interests, ensuring certain works of art or historic sites are prioritized.
Another benefit to creating a custom trip to Italy that is a culture-focused package is the ability to schedule additional time to experience local life. If traveling during a specific time of year, our staff can recommend unique, local cultural activities, events, and festivals to include in the itinerary. Whether an internationally famed event like the Carnival of Venice or a more local ritual like shopping at open-air farmer’s markets, there is no better way to fully immerse in the culture of Italy than joining Italian residents in traditional events.
Of all the trips one may take in their lifetime, one of the most important and memorable is the honeymoon.
