Charming.  Dynamic.  Authentic.  These three words capture the essence of Italy and are at the heart of Authentic Italy’s philosophy.

Authentic Italy, a Robb Report preferred travel partner, was included in 2016 Conde’ Nast Top Travel Specialist List for Italy and in Travel+Leisure’s 2017 A-List.

We are a boutique travel company specialized in custom Italian getaways that use food and wine as a gateway to culture. Our mantra, “guided by the bite,” sets the tone of our programs, transforming them into culinary journeys, where cuisine is a gateway to culture, and every bite and sip enrich each moment through the most memorable epicurean and authentic experiences of a lifetime.

From adventurous truffle hunts exploring Piedmont or Umbria, getting to know the Urbani family, a true authority and worldwide leader of the Truffle business, to prized caviars produced through sustainable farming techniques; from visits to producers to tastings with winemakers; from dining at the table of a Michelin starred chef, to learning nonna’s recipes in her kitchen.

Our expert travel consultants customize visits for families, groups of friends, business associates, individuals and couples. We seek out the most unforgettable upscale experiences for your interests—from breathtaking accommodations, to world-renowned restaurants, to exclusive sightseeing excursions and more.

With 20 distinct regions, each with its own spin on Italian culture and flavors, no two trips to this incredible country are alike—nor should they be. In fact, we like to say that exploring Italy is like exploring 20 different countries.  Talk to us and let us plan the trip you have always dreamed of taking from the Dolomites in the North to the Aeolian Islands in the South.

Our philosophy is simple and centers on 5 principles:

  • Go regional, and dive deep
  • Always listen to the client
  • Treat on-the-ground collaborators like family
  • Experience Italy through its incomparable regional dishes and wines
  • Keep an eye on the new while celebrating the past
