Join Us on an Immersive 12-day Custom Tour of Italy

Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Naples & Sorrento

Experience and embrace the amazing culture and history of each destination with Janet Miller of Bliss Trips etc - the group leader of this tour.

This custom tour was carefully curated for new travelers to Italy, offering the time to wander and discover beyond the typical tourist "must-sees" and giving a few "off the beaten path" optional activities. This trip will leave you wanting to return to see even more of Italy, sooner than later!

Janet did a similar tour with her husband in May 2023, spending 15 days touring the same three cities. She hand-picked every tour and activity and planned each day in a way they wouldn't feel rushed and had time to wander and "get lost" in the nooks and crannies of each destination.

This tour has been curated for 16-20 adults (over 18+), double or single occupancy. The hand-picked and customized tours are all private. You will be staying in 4* hotels that include breakfast daily. Other tours can be booked separately if you should want to do more during your downtime. Janet is able to assist with booking other options.

You will be transported when necessary via a small mini coach and rail. The group will have an Italian & English speaking tour assistant accompany them on these modes of transportation.

Italy is not ADA compliant and there will be a lot of walking on this tour. Please note that the streets and sidewalks are uneven and made of cobblestone, so travelers must be able to navigate in these conditions.
