Why Us?

Because Italy is our Passion

Tours in Italy connecting you with the local scene


Arguably, the most important part of our tours is the authentic level of the experience that our clients embark on when they choose The Italian on Tour.

We understand the level of customer service that North America is accustomed to and we strive to provide it on every level, from our accommodations and transportation to our gastronomic experiences.

We organize exclusive tours of Marche and its surrounding areas, taking you to visit and eat at the special spots and places that we bring our family friends that come from abroad or other regions of Italy.  Each place has been tried, tested, and tasted by us in order to give you the most genuine experience of Italy available.  This does not only mean tasting the local cuisine, learning how to make native dishes but also being exposed to the amazing history of the Piceni, a population that inhabited the region of Marche and central Italy for over 3,500 years.


Our Values


Italian food culture is ingrained in our souls. We have scoured this region of Italy to find you the perfect restaurants, wineries, and producers that epitomize and represent the true Italian ways of life and our love for this land.


We do our best to maintain a balance between relaxation and travel. By minimizing your time on the road, The Italian on Tour gives you the chance to discover the place you are visiting, wander the cobblestone streets, and feel the heartbeat of the town you are staying in.


We take quality seriously, never underestimating the ingredients that go into making our tours an exceptional plate. We have personally selected partners that believe in our values and truly showcase the best that Italy has to offer.


Bringing the high-level of customer service we are accustomed to in North America, we have personally researched, and planned all our tours. We take every step to ensure you will enjoy a truly authentic and relaxing Italian experience.  We will be fully at your disposal throughout the duration of your stay, offering complimentary cell phones to ensure we are never more than a phone call away.


Every experience at The Italian on Tour is 100% Italian. We put great importance on the food, culture, traditions, and history of the places we take you and the partners we work with.  As part of this philosophy we stay true to our Italian roots by working with partners that maintain a dialogue between their traditions and the land.  Bringing you the best of what is in season, and never forgoing local, for mass produced and fabricated cuisine or experiences.



We are not just about travel. We are about creating memorable experiences of a lifetime.  Here at The Italian on Tour we believe the best trips are the ones where you don’t just see the sites, but where you feel the rhythm of the place you are staying.  By getting to know the people, the food and the culture of Marche you gain a life enriching experience, allowing you to take home a piece of our Italy with you!

Why the Italian on Tour?

Because you will explore undiscovered and ancient areas of Italy in Marche, Abruzzo, and Umbria in a unique way. These regions of Italy have experienced hardly any tourism from abroad, allowing you to enjoy the most authentic experience that Italy has to offer.

On our tours you will be able to participate in activities not normally accessible by tourists, such as becoming a cheese maker for a day, and learning the secrets of this ancient practice in a small family run cheese factory.

If you are looking for a truly outstanding experience away from the other busy areas of Italy and would like to receive an unparalleled level of customer service, The Italian on Tour is for you!

Our tours are small, never more than 8 people.  They offer an exceptional experience of the places we visit, with a focus on personally taking care of you every step of the way.
