Tours in Italy
Get your inspiration from these itineraries
Savor the details
Some say a lifetime isn’t enough to discover all of Rome’s hidden wonders. And that’s quite true, Rome is just one city but it can offer over two thousand years of layered history. But Italy is much more. From the stunning artistic beauty of Florence to the unrivaled culinary excellency of Parma, from the architectural marvels of Venice to the enchanting Umbrian hills. Join us in this magical immersion into the Italian world!
The secret to enjoy Italy at its best
Some people think about Italy as a place to visit mandatorily at a certain point in their life. Lucky are those who can spend the gap year there – a long vacation in the Belpaese to discover their inner selves. Even luckier those who can organize their Italian honeymoon, between Verona and the shining Ligurian Riviera.
Being in Italy, even for a short time, is always a special occasion. To discover the scent of freshly brewed specialty espresso, the agile elegance of a Bianchi racing bike, the earthy fragrance of a porcino mushroom you have just discovered behind a gnarled root. The Italian lifestyle is all about enjoying life’s little pleasures and elevating them to an art form.

Our custom Italy tours
Voyemo’s customers are groups and individuals who are looking for quality. They know that the true Italian flavor can’t be found inside cheap and discounted tour packages.
Looking on the internet, you will find plenty on a budget tour. They are pretty standard as their main goal is to let you visit the most in the shortest time. But we at Voyemo know that experiencing Italian culture shouldn’t be about whizzing by monuments and checking cities and landmarks off a list.
Italy is another thing – this country requires a different approach.
It all starts with listening, and every place has got a story to tell.
Our custom tours will take you off the beaten track, far from the chaos and the crowds. You will be able to slow down, take a deep breath, and get a real taste of La Dolce Vita.
Medieval and Renaissance travel paths, luxury shopping and high-tech districts, food and wine exclusive experiences. We are able to organize the most updated private and guided Southern or Northern Italy tours.
No doubt you would be likely to select your options on our tour lists, but you are free to ask for anything else.

Vegan and vegetarian options are more than welcome
We at Voyemo are very attentive to those who prefer a plant-based diet, and we have many possibilities regarding tours for ‘vegans’ and ‘vegetarians’.
Of course this does not only concern food and wine tours, but also shopping, cooking classes and experiences inside factories producing clothes, cosmetics and consumer products.
Let’s start with a private, nighttime tour of the Uffizi Gallery with an art historian. A gourmet picnic for two on a sailboat in the Gulf of Sorrento. A trekking in the Dolomites pink mountains between Trentino and Veneto regions, or discover the hospitality of the people from the Apennines between Tuscany and Emilia. A luxury shopping day with a personal assistant in Forte Dei Marmi or Milan’s most fashionable boutiques. A visit to the finest wineries of the Franciacorta region (Lombardy) with a top-notch sommelier.
These are just a few examples.

- 欧州は6回目ですが、初めてのイタリア旅行でしたし、イタリアは特にかなり見どころ満載でガイドブックだけでは判らない事が多かったので、思い切ってネットで見つけたリカルドさんにお願いしてみました。 見知らぬ人でしたし最初は少々不安でしたが、やり取りしているうちに人柄が伝わって安心してお任せ出来ました。 ベニス、ベローナ、フィレンツェそしてローマでの2週間滞在のホテル、電車での移動、車の送迎、ツアーガイド、オプショナルツアー、PCR検査の予約まで、航空券以外は全て手配していただきました。 特にホテルは立地の利便性、サービスなどは実際その場に行ってみないと判りませんし、リカルドさんのお勧めは全て大正解でした。 その他にもレストランのお勧めもして頂き、フィレンツェ滞在中は郊外のワインテイスティングも体験しました。 それとベニスとベローナでは、それぞれ日本滞在経験のあるイタリア人の方々による日本語でのツアーガイドも手配していただき、素晴らしい体験でした。 リカルドさんはヨーロッパ全体に広い知識と経験をもってらっしゃいますので、次回はギリシャ、もしくはポルトガル旅行をまたお任せする予定にしています。
My girlfriends and I took part to the tennis camp organised by Voyemo in Sicily and loved it. The organisation was impeccable, the hotel gorgeous, the food delicious and the David, our tennis couch, outstanding. Highly recommended.
Voyemo’s Retreat in Zanzibar was a perfect combination of doing and being, but right doing and right being that energized and refreshed me. My professional life in the past year had been intense. I had the impression of having little time and no energy to engage my body in a dynamic way. When I did have time, it felt difficult to self-motivate and to choose by myself a suitable, consistent program. In the days of the Voyemo Retreat, I accomplished more than I expected. Under the highly-trained expertise of Dennis both as a yoga instructor and as a fitness trainer, my body grew stronger, more flexible, more dynamic. The deeper tensions in my body were softened by the therapeutic massages of Larissa. There was also time to enjoy the beauty of Zanzibar. The body loves attention, movement, relaxation and adventure. Voyemo’s Retreat delivered it all and gave me a boost to make my own path to better health.
We had an experience of a lifetime. Ricardo looked after every detail leaving us to enjoy a wonderful time. We look forward to using Voyemo on our future trips to Europe. Also our photographer, Christian, is a must.
The Voyemo Team made us an unforgettable holiday experience in Crete. It was a pleasure talking to theses guys and plan things around our long weekend trip. The place they offered was far beyond expectations and we loved the local vinery in that small village. Keep on going guys and talk to you soon for our next journey around September!!
I was looking to go away for a week to for some much needed restbite. I came across Riccardo's website. I gave him a call and he offered several suggestions that may be suitable. He was travelling during these times but this didn’t stop him from getting back to me and emailing me the relevant details when he was able too. I chose the island of Ios in Greece and had a wonderful time. They staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a lovely hotel and resort. Riccardo arranged my ferry and made sure I had all the right details and was at the end of the phone if I got stuck. I did need to message him a couple of time whilst I was there with some queries and he always got back to me quickly and efficiently. Riccardo is friendly and helpful and the organisational skills of his company have been very helpful and a blessing especially during COVID new rules and regs. I would recommend using Riccardo if you just want to go somewhere and leave the details up to him.
I contacted Voyemo to design a small getaway I wanted in October. In the midst of Covid outbreak, they found the perfect solution close to my home, in an amazing hotel, with top services (massage, personal trainer spa) at a super good price. They were caring all throughout the process and answered every question I had with reactivity. I cannot recommend enough. I even already booked my next trip with them for next year.
Riccardo and his team at Voyemo are top class travel experts. They created the most wonderful tailor-made honeymoon through Italy for us this summer which included the most beautiful hotels and many fun and memorable activities as well. They made sure all of the hotels looked after us well and provided us with lots of tips along the way to make sure we didn't miss out on any good spots. The customer service is brilliant, nothing is too much for the team. We are so grateful to them for helping us create the best memories possible. We would highly recommend them for any luxury travel needs and will definitely use them again. Thanks so much! Anna and Marc
Thank you, Voyemo. I had a fantastic time in South Africa and Zanzibar because of you. After a first proposal, Riccardo took time to understand my style of travel and planned it for me. The choice of hotels was exquisite, and the travel design was on point. All along with my trip, Riccardo made sure I was enjoying it and that everything was ok. Do not hesitate and travel with Voyemo
Riccardo was absolutely great to work with. He planned an amazing adventure for my sister and myself through Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. All the details were sorted and we had absolutely nothing to worry about on the trip except to have fun. I definitely recommend working with his expertise when planning any adventure!
Thank you Riccardo for the incredible Support! We've had one of the best times of our Lives!! Planning a Honeymoon/10th Anniversary is definitely not the easiest ?! We were so excited and keen to get it just right. After extensive research, we came across Voyemo, and decided to give them a go... Riccardo and his team were so knowledgeable and resourceful about the best places to visit. You gave us honest opinions about destinations and even reminded us Hurricane Seasons at certain destinations which could have been a major barrier. You put so much passion in the service you offer to clients and you make each journey person-centered! You were so patient and cooperative even when we got confused and came up with all sorts of ideas ?. We finally went with Singapore and the Maldives! Best decision ever!!!!! Riccardo made sure our transports were prompt to avoid any delays or having to wait at airports. Riccardo was kind enough to offer us list of places to visit and best rooftop bars in Singapore! In short, We've made Singapore a second home in the near future, that's how much we Love SG! The Resort in the Maldives Riccardo advised us to choose was Bliss! We made family with everyone on the Island and had the best Holiday by Far!!! Thank you Riccardo for going above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect Anniversary Holiday! Looking forward to you planning so many other getaways in the years ahead.. Love from Emmanuel and Abi
I had a great time in Peru with the help of Voyemo. The itinerary design and local guides are very professional. This is an outstanding travel design company and I would like to book my future trips with them.
We, two friends in need of some time off and relaxation stumbled across Voyemo in our search for a wellness/fitness holiday. We had both extensively looked for days and hours, trying to find a retreat early June, when Europe was only just slowly opening up. We provided Voyemo with our wishlisht on Friday late afternoon and had two proposals over the weekend, on Monday morning, meeting all of our wishes. On Zákhynthos we enjoyed a tailor-made program with daily yoga, tai-chi, pilates and fun private guided sports tours such as Kayak and SUP to the island's landmarks, yet avoiding the big crowds. We were so very well looked after in every step of the way! I wish we had known about Voyemo sooner! Highly recommend this agency!
We just finished what turned out to be an amazing 2 week stay in Florence and the surrounding areas. Where to begin…Riccardo made our time there a true Italian experience without any glitches. We were able to discover a few real treasures of the Florentine and Tuscan offerings. It was like opening a gift around every corner and every day. Riccardo was able to help us plan every detail so that we had no stress…for us everything flowed so easily…although we know Riccardo was hard at work ‘behind the scenes’ ensuring that all our expectations were surpassed! He was courteous enough to meet us at the airport in Florence with a private transport to our luxurious hotel in the Oltrarno district where we found a beautiful bottle of Chianti Classico waiting for us, a perfect way to unwind after the long journey. During our stay, Riccardo was the perfect blend of host, friend, and expert adviser. He allowed us our space and let us choose how busy or not we wanted to be. In Florence, he organized a tour of the Vasari Corridor (so interesting!), an evening of fine wine and aperitif, a sunset tour by private car to piazzale di Michelangelo and San Miniato al monte, an evening opera outdoors at nearby Fiesole, and a day trip to San Gimignano (also by private car). In San Gimignano we had dinner at an amazing Tuscan Osteria and we were able to stay in the town late into the evening, eating gelato, walking, and talking. I highly recommend this, because San Gimignano is magical after the dinner hour…all the crowds of tourists leave by bus and you can really feel the true spirit of the town in those later hours. He also introduced us to several (non-tourist) bars, gelaterias, and restaurants in Florence, all the while entertaining us with the history of all that we were seeing. He is so knowledgeable and we loved to listen to him speak Italian as we are trying desperately to learn this lovely language. He also speaks perfect English for those that need it! We are so happy that we had these two weeks and that we had Riccardo’s assistance. With his help our two week vacation was truly maximized because we avoided the time consuming and sometimes expensive blunders that we usually make on our own, and we learned so much about Florence, the art, the history, the food, the wine… We feel as if we floated through time into another world. We returned home completely relaxed and we are dreaming and planning our return!
Voyemo // Riccardo were absolutely fantastic in my search for a wellness escape. I stumbled across their site via Google. After sending Riccardo some details of what I was after I had a shortlist of incredible options in no time. Riccardo was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and so easy to deal with. I had the most beautiful stay in Mallorca and couldn't have asked for anything more.
