Special Days In Italy – Hire a touristic guide

Whether you like traveling on your own or with organized group tours, plan to schedule at least one PRIVATE tour with an experienced, entertaining and highly-informed guide. (below there is a list of recommended guides). They’ll take you off the tourist track, and as you stroll with them through the picturesque streets and piazzas of the major cities, or let them drive you along the panoramic country roads, or through secluded valleys in the Alps, Italy will suddenly become more than a history or art lesson. It will be a place where real people have actually lived for thousands of years. Buon viaggio!
