If you could connect with (and eat like!) the locals all while experiencing genuine Italian life –

without ever having to lift a finger

(or worrying about the lingo)

…would you give yourself that chance?

Or, would you keep on…

🚫 Rolling up in a coach bus packed with 50 people on a whirlwind “Ultimate Italy” tour only to be exhausted from fighting through lines, and wasting your precious vacation days on a crowded bus?

🚫 Vacationing in a beautiful villa (think Under the Tuscan Sun) leaving you isolated and missing out on actually experiencing genuine Italian life?

🚫 DIY planning your Italian vacation with TripAdvisor and scoring a deal on Groupon to save big bucks only to find out the activities mentioned were “just suggestions” and “not included in the price” ?

🚫 Purchasing a self-guided itinerary, hiring a private driver (white gloves top hat and all), just to realize your itinerary wasn’t put together by locals and those “hidden gems” mentioned are where every other single tour goes?

*Truth Time*

You’ve fallen into just another

tourist trap!

If you’re ready to have that “Wow! I can’t believe this is my life!” Italian moment as you mingle with the locals, indulge in award-winning wines, authentic places and experiences…

…then we’ve got

GOOD NEWS:

On this 7 day Venetian Epicurean Adventure

You’ll uncover the nuances of everyday Italian life 

Enjoy the best meal of your life moments

Sit, back & relax by unpacking once at a historic boutique hotel just steps away from one of Italy’s most beautiful squares 

And NEVER pull out your wallet for the “extras” not included in the price

You’ll experience the “Real Italy” just like these travelers before you….

“WE GOT TO SEE THE REAL ITALY!”

“The Italy that so many people who visit Italy multiple times, never get to experience in their lifetime.”

JENNIFER LEVESQUE

Mooresville, North Carolina, USA

“YOU’LL TAKE ALL THE GUESSWORK OUT OF PLANNING YOUR ITALIAN VACATION”

“Giovanni & Chantelle take care of where to go, what to see, where to eat: all while experiencing genuine everyday Italian lifestyle and cuisine.”

ANNETTE PETRO

San Jose, California, USA

“YOU WON’T HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE ON YOUR OWN.”

“The exceptional scenery, the out of the way amazing places, wineries and food, all worth the trip to Italy and you wouldn’t find them without Giovanni & Chantelle!”

LEE FARRINGTON

“THIS WAS AN AUTHENTIC ITALIAN EXPERIENCE”

“I wanted an authentic experience as a local in Italy. Giovanni & Chantelle absolutely exceeded my expectations!”

But first, you need to know

I thought about you during my Big Fat Italian Wedding…


A small town girl from beautiful British Columbia, I knew there was so much more out there to discover and dreamed of traveling Europe. 

On my first trip, I did what most travellers do: big bus tour. Exhausted after returning home and feeling like I barely scratched the surface I knew there had to be a better way to travel.

Then I met Giovanni… 

Determined to find that elusive La Dolce Vita I packed my bags and returned to Italy for the third time. 

But now I had my trusty guide (my future Italian hubby & expert in Italian Food & Wine): Giovanni…

Evening strolls, scenic routes, traveling where the Italians live, digging into authentic Italian food, and discovering all the nuances of everyday Italian life.

This Was The

Italy Insider Difference…

An experience only achievableable with a homegrown Italian with passion and expertise for everything Italy. When we finally got around to tying the knot, we wanted to share a slice of our untainted Italy with our bffs…

Which brings me back to my a-ha moment about you…every single guest had their Italy Insider moment.  The kind of experience you can only achieve with local insight and insider intel.

It was that day, walking down the aisle, saying our vows, devoting our love, and sharing our Italy with family and friends…

YOUR BACKSTAGE PASS TO ITALY WAS BORN

“I wanted an authentic experience as a local in Italy. Giovanni & Chantelle absolutely exceeded my expectations!”

Chantelle and Giovanni are a very insightful, educated, cultured husband-wife team.  From the moment they greeted me at the airport, I felt like a friend. A friend they looked out for and introduced to their local Italian friends who were also lovely, friendly… and local experts.

Join us for just 2 exclusive dates a year!

“OTHER TOURISTS WILL NEVER HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE!”

“This was an experience that throngs of other tourists won’t have. A unique and nice way to see a different culture. And actually spending our last 24 hours in Rome punctuated that. Rome was cool, but we spent exactly the right amount of time there.

RACHEL RUVO

North Carolina, USA

“SINCE OUR GROUP WAS SMALL WE GAINED INSIGHT & ACTUALLY EXPERIENCED ITALY”

“A portion of Italy, we would have never had the luxury of experiencing if we had been traveling on our own.”

food and wine tours in italy the italian on tour

1. Who will I be traveling with?

Giovanni –  Your Exclusive The Italian On Tour host & Italian Truffle expert – Chantelle, and your fellow Italian adventurers. Most of our guests range in age from their 30s to being in their 70s. When you’re on tour with us, age is just a number because everyone is here to sit back, relax, and experience Italy like a local all while enjoying Italy’s amazing culinary and cultural delights.

KELLY SERVINSKI

Squamish, BC, Canada

2. I’ve already been to Italy...is this the right trip for me?

Yes, because this means you already love Italy and you’ve probably already traveled to all of Italy’s major tourist sites, but are dying to experience Italy like a local. When you travel with us you’ll experience a new culture among locals who become friends (and know Italy like the back of their hand!). Your trip will be the perfect balance of vacationing and relaxing so you can indulge in La Dolce Vita.

“You’ll want to go back & experience their Italy, again and again!”

MINETHA BROWN

“THE ITALIAN ON TOUR SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!”

As seasoned travelers, we have high expectations. It’s hard to imagine any other place in Italy that better exemplifies the charms of the country that make it a magnet for travellers. It’s even harder to imagine more engaging, charming and thoughtful guides than Chantelle and Giovanni.

MICHAEL ZACKS

Toronto, Canada

3. How about if it’s my first time to Italy - don’t I need to go to the Vatican?

Just 5 hours from Rome and a train ride away to Verona, Venice & Milan, you can tag on a trip to these bucket-list items before or after your trip with us.

While you’re with us, forget worrying about the language, logistics, or having a bad meal – you’ll travel stress-free knowing we’ve taken the guesswork out of planning your trip.

RACHELLE HYNES

6. I’m not a “tour person” (I usually plan my own trips). Is this right for me?

Great! Our guests travel with us because they’re looking for an authentic experience, something that they simply cannot pull-off on their own. Think of this as the kind of trip planned by your local Italian BFFs who just happen to be Italian food & wine experts.

“Giovanni & Chantelle are the perfect guides to translate the Italian experience”

“Traveling like a local is not straight-forward. This type of experience requires someone on the inside who can guide you – and that’s where The Italian On Tour steps in.”

To get the most out of this Venetian adventure, you should…

Be ready for insider knowledge — you already know the best way to experience a new culture is among locals who become friends (and know Italy like the back of their hand!)

Want to take the guesswork out of planning your trip. Sit back and relax knowing we’ve taken care of it.  

Love Italian food, sipping Prosecco, enjoy walking, picturesque countryside, and off-the-beaten-path places where you can immerse yourself in the local culture – you want a ticket to being Italian for a week.  

…and never want to stress about all the logistics, having a bad meal, or worry about speaking the local lingo.  

This means, you shouldn’t pop the prosecco if…

The flow of Italian lifestyle – dinner at 8pm, shops close for siesta-leisurely meals, and a full glass of vino – isn’t your jam. 

Exploring picturesque villages & vineyards doesn’t feel fun. We visit Venice & hill-top villages — exploring them means we’ve arranged some private walking tours to give you insight into the history and local culture.

(Please refer to each individual day in the itinerary for an approximation of the activity level.)

Boutique historic accommodations with focus on location to amenities, relaxation, character and pure Italian charm isn’t where you want to stay. You’re looking for huge rooms, a swimming pool & accommodations located far outside the city center. (Need extra space? Don’t worry! Upgrades including a rooftop terrace overlooking Piazza dei Signori are available starting at just $297 per room)

“You’re not shuffled in and out of a bus. There are no lines to cue up in. Chantelle & Giovanni take all the guesswork out of planning your Italian vacation.”

 

“They take care of where to go, what to see, where to eat: all while experiencing genuine everyday Italian lifestyle and cuisine.  The authentic Italian food was AMAZING! And best of all we had two locals to enlighten each day with their knowledge and experiences.”

ANNE PETRO

San Jose, California, USA

Then You Should Know This…

 

Plenty of people will DIY it and book that too-good-to-be-true big bus tour because they think they’ve gotta squeeze all of Italy’s famous spots into one trip or that they’ve scored a deal of a lifetime.

And here’s what will happen…

They’ll wind up being just another tourist on a big bus tour with 50 other people or stranded in the Italian countryside without a clue of where to go, what to see, who to meet, and what to eat.

…leaving you on the sidelines, missing out on experiencing the real Italy. 

But that isn’t going to be you…

You want more time relaxing than spending countless hours planning and stressing about all the details

You want to forget about getting from point A to B, and relax knowing you’ll be taken care of

You want to enjoy sipping Prosecco under the Italian sun, digging into that second plate of pasta all’uovo made with Nonna’s love, and treating yourself with a second scoop of gelato because you’re in Italy and everyday is a celebration.
