Choosing Your Next Vacation Tour

Who wouldn’t love to spend a week or two touring the major cities and smaller villages of Italy? One of the most beautiful settings in Europe to visit, Italy offers something for everyone – no matter what their interests. Although fairly easy to maneuver on your own, many people simply do not feel comfortable enough setting off on a journey through an unfamiliar land (especially one where the majority of the people speak another language), so they prefer to tour the sights with a group.

This, however, can be a scary endeavor, especially if you are not used to travelling in a group.  Too many people think that touring in a group means being stuck in a crowded bus with a group of strangers for two weeks schlepping from one tourist destination to another with barely enough time to see the sights, let alone enjoy them. But that is not the case at all! There are plenty of ways to tour Italy – or any other destination for that matter – that will enable you to see just the sites you want, in a pace that is most comfortable for you. Plus, you have the opportunity to make a few new friends along the way.

If large groups make you uncomfortable, then you can choose a smaller, more intimate grouping.  Or if you would rather travel with people your own age; demographic group or interest area, that can be easily arranged too.  It doesn’t matter whether you are interested in hitting the major tourist hotspots, or would rather visit more off-the-beaten path sites you may have missed otherwise, there is a tour option to fit everyone tourists expectations and dreams.

Pre-planned tours are a great way to relax and have fun. After all, why not let someone else do all the work if you don’t have to?  Wondering what types of tours are available to cater to your individual tastes and interests? Here are just a few ways to tour Italy in a group that you may not be aware of:

  • Biking Tours. Most of us have only dreamed of casually biking through the quaint villages in Europe. Turn that dream into a reality with a bilking tour of Italy’s countryside. From one day to one week excursions, there are plenty of different tours to suit just about every interest.
  • Walking Tours.  Some people just have to explore every nook and cranny of place firsthand to feel as if they have been there. If the idea of sitting on a bus day in and day out just doesn’t appeal to you, consider taking in the major cities of Italy on foot.  Most package tours offer some walking trips around the major tourist spots; but some offer all-day walking tours to allow you the opportunity to get up and personal with both the cities and its native peoples.
  • Specialized Art/Architecture Tours.  Italy is known for its exquisite art and architecture. If those are two passions of yours, be sure to consider booking a tour designed specifically to introduce visitors to the extraordinary artwork and museums here as well as the opportunity to delve deeper into the history of each city’s architecture.
  • Spooktacular Fun Tours.  If you are not afraid to delve deeper into the more spooky aspects of Italy, consider taking a tour of Rome’s catacombs; a countryside castle or vampire; a tour of Rome’s angels and demons or other scary ghostly encounter.  Although not for everyone, they sure can be fun.
  • Food and Wine Tours. Maybe one of the most popular types of tours available in Italy (other than the main attractions), food and wine tours offer a great way to experience the best culinary specialties in the country, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at Italy’s best wineries.  Food lovers will enjoy trying a variety of culinary specialties as well as checking out the country’s most famous restaurants and chefs.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter what you are interested in: the history of Italy; its culture and food; art and architecture; or scary ghosts, finding a tour of Italy that will create a memorable experience really isn’t difficult.  All you really have to do is consider what sights you want to see; how you would like to travel (by bus, car, bike or on foot), what special interests you have and how large of a group you are interested in travelling with. Then let a professional touring agency find the best vacation tour for you.  After that, the only job you have left is to enjoy yourself! For more Information:
