Oh Italia! We are a Tampa Travel Agency that has Italian Specialists on staff. We have traveled to Italy and Sicily on multiple occasions. This is one of the most popular European destinations for land tours, independent travel and even cruise departures. Gina's grandfather was Sicilian so we have traveled to the island of Sicily. In addition, we have seen Naples, The Amalfi Coast, Rome, Tuscany including Siena and Florence plus even Northern Italy in the area of Venice on the Adriatic Sea. If you are located in the Tampa area, stop by a speak with us about Italy or email us if you need information about Italian travel and you are not located in our area.

Italy is a beautiful country filled with warm hearted people. The food is tremendous and very different from North to South. Antipastos, Olives and Olive Oil, Pasta in many forms, Seafood, Cheeses and Meats, including great steaks around Tuscany. Coffee is a passion and the Italians drink great wine like it is water. It is pretty easy to get around with a great public transportation system that includes fast and slow trains, busses to areas not served by the trains and a great road system.
We sell escorted tours where you have a tour guide and move about on a motorcoach if you do not want to do it yourself. We also have suppliers that sell vacation packages with a host or we do fully independent itineraries with custom accommodations including name brand hotels, localized pensiones, apartments and even agriculturismos where you get a room on the farm. We offer every cruise line including Italian owned cruise lines like MSC and everybody has cruise ships that depart nearby to Rome or Venice or even Genoa. Most of the cruise ships visit ports like Rome, Naples, Venice, Livorno (near Florence/Pisa) and even Messina where you can take a day trip to see Taormina (pictured above).
Buy Italy from a Travel Professional who has seen the sights, rode the trains, eaten the food and even visited family.
