And that’s just for starters. Selected Tours is a Custom Tour Company – we delight in putting together unique Travel combinations just for you. However sometimes visitors aren’t quite sure what they want. Perhaps they can’t imagine it, or they don’t know what’s available or feasible for their time frame and budget.

That’s why we list so many Premium Tours – to spark your imagination and open you up to possibilities. Under Top Destinations, you will find multiple Tours, including some very unusual ones, to Rome, Florence, Venice, Cinque Terre, the Amalfi Coast, Milan and Assisi. This section also includes three small countries, all conveniently inside or adjacent to Italy – Vatican City, Monaco and San Marino.

Then, under The Twenty Regions of Italy, you’ll find a host of add-on (or stand-alone) Premium Tours – the spice on your pizza! – small cities, rural areas, isolated spots, adventure opportunities and cultural bonanzas. Many of these off-the-beaten-track options are perfect counterpoints to your traditional destinations, giving you a break from bustling cities by putting you out in the countryside or in small villages where there are opportunities for hiking, fresh and salt water boating, Vespa-riding, even snowshoeing; where you can learn to cook in country kitchens or taste wonderful wines where they’re made; and where you can truly discover why in Italy, la vita e bella! Sometimes these hard-to-do-on-your-own side tours end up being the highlights of your trip.

Selected Tours is also happy to offer Heritage Tours all over Italy. If you want to retrace your Italian lineage, find a few skeletons in the closet or maybe even living relatives you weren’t sure you had, we can assist!

Most of our tours are Private Services – you and your party are the only guests along for the ride. But we can sometimes organize Small Group Tours to keep your costs down. Ask us! All tours are led by our Expert Guides, and many can be organized with pick-ups / drop-offs at your lodgings.
