Everything Went Like Clockwork

Buongiorno Antonio!

Thank you so much for the wonderful trip.... starting with the magical entrance into Venice right through to the great tours of Milan; everything went like clockwork. Not to mention your personal email of wishing us a good journey before we left. We had a great time with Enrico. I have reached out to him in an email, as he had suggested, and anxiously waiting for his reply.

We will definitely be back to consult with you again sometime soon.

The Most Perfect Vacation

We had saved up a few years to plan the trip of a lifetime. We found Savor Italy's website by chance, and contacted Antonio to inquire about his services. We sent him our budget, what we were hoping to see/do, and our traveling style. He responded promptly and put a "spot on" itinerary together for us. It almost sounded too good to be true, until we arrived in Italy. Every single part of our itinerary happened without a glitch. The custom tours & service blew us away. It was the most perfect vacation, and we will remember this trip for the rest of our lives.

Attention to Detail

I am recently back from a fabulous 10 day tour of Italy with Savour Italy Tours. This is my second time going with one of their tours and will most definitely not be my last. The attention to detail … the local artisans and family owned restaurants and tour companies SI uses makes our time even more authentic. We were a group of 19 and we had private tours of wineries and gardens and farms and the most delicious food and wine... Grazie!.... I will be back!!

Nothing Compares

This was an amazing tour of Southern Italy and Sicily. Everything was organized and taken care of. I was able to just experience all the wonders of the wine, food and culture of the regions. This is my second tour with Antonio's company and I am in the process of booking my third! Having also done bus tours and cruises with other companies, nothing compares to this experience! You visit places off the beaten path and have wonderful encounters with the locals. It is so worth it and I highly recommend any tour with Savour Italy!!!!

Ask and You Will Receive

There is no greater lover of all things Italian than Antonio. He is always ready to give you inside information to build your own itinerary in Italy. Ask and you will receive, whether it be a winery recommendation or a favorite restaurant.

Our last tour of Italy would not have been nearly as memorable had it not been for Antonio’s recommendations. We are returning again this fall and will again be following Antonio’s passion as we build our own itinerary.

Everything Was Taken Care of Expertly

Our group of four women combined the Discover the South and Sicily tours. From the time that our tour leader met us at the airport in Rome until we arrived in Palermo sixteen days later, everything was taken care of expertly by our Savour Italy team. This was an absolutely fabulous, carefree, first class trip full of authentic Italian experiences. If you want to immerse yourself in Italian culture, cuisine & wine, as well as visit numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Savour Italy is the tour company for you! Just say Yes to Italy!

Great food, wine, activities and tours

There is only one way to describe a Savour Italy tour... in superlatives. From initial booking to final farewell, Antonio and his gang do their utmost to ensure you have a wonderful trip sometimes off the beaten track. The memories of a recent 13 day trip to Puglia and Sicily are still fresh and warm. Great food, wine, activities and tours. I've done 2 tours with Savour Italy and am looking forward to another... the sooner; the better.

Well Worth It

A travel companion and I used Antonio's customised tour service for an eight-day trip to Piemonte and Toscana. All directions and reservations for accommodations, some meals, winery and enoteca tours were easy to follow. Antonio's recommendations were all stellar, bringing us to places we would not have found on our own and ensuring that we were well received everywhere. His selection of visits and arrangements was superb. The cost was well worth it and added incommensurable value to our trip. I will avail myself of his services again.
