Have you been ton Italy Tours and felt like you were on a carousel of well-known cities and monuments, all of them famously Italian, yet somehow you couldn’t get a real sense of Italy?

Have you ever felt that somewhere out there, genuine, everyday Italian life was going on, but you just couldn’t seem to get off the beaten path?  Or do you dream of visiting Italy for the first time?  Do you imagine sitting in a quaint trattoria, with a bowl of pasta made by nonna, where your fellow diners are all speaking in boisterous Italian dialects and gesticulating wildly at one another?

The fact is, that it can be difficult for a tourist to experience authentic Italy, but we know the secret of how and where to find it, and we would like to share it with you!

Italian Provincial Tours is a boutique tour company specialising in the provincial regions of Italy.  We take you off the beaten path and provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and cuisine and enjoy an authentic Italian experience.

Our Italy tours are all-inclusive including every meal, and we never have more than 12 people on any tour.  We will show you the heart of Italy, in a tasteful, comfortable and indulgent way.  Because that’s the Italian way.

We believe that Italians know what is important in life and they live it.  Our dream is to share the Italian way of life with you.

I spent a week with Marco and Katri in Abruzzo last September and it was one of the best travel experiences I have had. The combination of outstanding scenery, fascinating towns, fabulous food and wine and extraordinary hosts ensured it was a week of immense discovery and joy. I could not fault anything except perhaps my inability to keep up with the amount of food that Italians can consume with ease. I hope that I can join them again some time for another special experience.

Our Italian Provincial Tours experience September 2019, was simply beautiful. Our hosts selected very comfortable authentic accommodation in historic towns of the Abruzzo region and matched it with fine local food and wine, and the most stunning scenery including mountain restaurants and one on stilts over the water. We enjoyed a leisurely pace and the activities took into account personal connections to the region, both of our hosts and our group. Visits matched local events so there was always an activity of interest for us to enjoy. Our small tour group were a friendly mix of experienced and novice travelers and our hosts Katri and Marco provided insight and humor throughout our trip. Our local guide and driver on the tour, Tiziana also gave us information about the art, history, architecture and with much humor ‘the local legend of the valley’ . Thank you Italian Provincial Tours we will be back! 10/10.
