5 Travel Itineraries in Italy

Experiences you will treasure at lenght

We represent unique, extraordinary independent and privately-owned boutique hotels, villas and yachts in Italy. To promote the hotels we represent we take pride in creating travel suggestions and itineraries, where our local knowledge meets the needs and interests of travel advisors and clients. Make this your very own tale of discovery along this unique peninsula, whether your primary concern is art, architecture, archaeology or even fine dining and shopping.

Our goal is to introduce travel advisors to new products and act as a primary resource for information and assistance ensuring they receive all the support they need in real time. Having a “sample itinerary” connecting the properties gives something more solid and potentially concrete to promote, rather than a mere collection of hotels.

Extraordinary hotels, whose credo is painstaking attention to details, excellence throughout, and whose experience is one you will treasure at length. Light varying a thousand times in a day, sensational dawns and sunsets, ever-changing hues, the lull of the waves by the shore, a star-studded sky, savouring an outstanding meal: you will simply ask for more

TRIP 1. From Lake Maggiore to Naples

Visit the exquisite Borromean Islands: like a fleet of fine vessels, they lie at anchor at the Golfo Borromeo, between Stresa and Verbania. Piedmont. This is the place where a realm of unexpected surprises unwinds in front of your eyes. The beauty of the area in northwestern Tuscany is the juxtaposition of mountains and the sea, rolling hills and medieval towns.  Naples, thousand colours and a thousand cultures.
