How we travel

Group Tours to Italy

A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles.” – Tim Cahill

There’s no question: Italy is a truly magical place – one that almost guarantees visitors have the trip of a lifetime! But exploring Italy with friends is extra-special – an experience you’ll never forget. And our small group tours to Italy promise this: you may start out as strangers from all four corners of the globe, but you’ll end your trip as friends forever.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.” – Izaak Walton

Solo travel can be a real adventure, and perhaps something everyone should try at least once. It’s exhilarating! Sometimes scary, you have to be bold and brave but the rewards will be many.

That said, group travel is an equally exciting adventure with tons of benefits. Some of them are below. Note: At LocalWonders, we believe “small group” means 10 people, not 40 people (like some of the Italy tours you may come across).

A small group size like that means we can offer our guests more flexibility, a more comfortable pace, and many more opportunities to explore the usually secret, most authentic parts of Italy.

  • Safety in numbers: When you travel with a group, there’s always someone to look out for you. You’ll be comforted knowing that you’re not alone. Further, shy guests often gleen confidence from the group and are able to explore more. (And they say: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”!)
  • Shared experiences: On our group trips to Italy, we give our guests the chance to see, taste, and enjoy Italy like a local. The result is a collection of really great experiences. And when those experiences are shared with a group, they’re way more fun! There’s someone to snap your photo, someone to visit with as you explore, someone to toast to at the end of a long day, and someone to reminisce with later. The result? Our guests bond over their shared interests and shared experiences. Friends for life!
  • Better access: Our small groups get better access to attractions, monuments and events than many of the regular tourist groups. More, at LocalWonders Travel we work with some of the best partners and suppliers in Italy so you’ll get to see the best of each place, as well as things that are usually reserved only for the locals.
  • Better prices: Just like better access, small group Italy tours often get better rates at attractions, monuments and festivals than individual ticket buyers. We’re able to pass those savings onto you for awesome Italy tours at excellent prices.

The LocalWonders Travel Philosophy

Travelling is the most wonderful way of discovering. It opens new horizons, enriches us, and take us beyond our own imagination. To us, travelling is – above all – about understanding, exchange, respect and (of course!) having good time.

As travellers, we yearn to learn about the wonders and culture of a place, enjoy the flavours and scents it has to offer, and immerse ourselves into the local culture. This is why we organize small group trips (10 people at most), and plan tours that go at a leisurely pace, allowing lots of time for exploration and discovery.

Each of our LocalWonders Travel group tours to Italy includes free time – a chance for guests to spend some time doing their favorite thing – a leisurely stroll through the local market, a delicious dinner at a great local restaurant, a relaxing afternoon in a beautiful courtyard. Not surprisingly, we find that on our small group tours, our guests choose to spend their free time together!

Our small group Italy trips exemplify this: “You never really travel alone. The world is full of friends waiting to get to know you.
