“Open my heart and you will see, engraved inside of it, ‘ Italy.’”
-Robert Browning


Dear Italy Traveler & Enthusiast,

If you’ve ever been to Italy, then you can relate to the above sentiment by Robert Browning...Italy is a place that, once you’ve been, it never quite leaves you. It becomes a part of you, always there, whispering to you like a long-lost friend, wanting you to stop in for a visit and if you’ve never been, then you only have to imagine places like the Colosseum in Rome, the Duomo of Florence or the water-filled streets of Venice to awaken inside of you the part that longs to see and experience a place where history is so alive, it speaks to you from every plaza, every church and even the very stones beneath your feet. Our tour of Italy in a small group presents a unique approach to discovering Italy.

The Cities & Towns: Venice • Florence • San Gimignano • Cortona • Assisi • Rome
Visits and experiences in San Gimignano, Paneretta, Arrezo, regions of Veneto, Tuscany, Chianti, Umbria and Lazio in an Italian Small Group Tour

Itinerary through the Great Cities of Italy

Frances Mayes in "Under the Tuscan Sun" once said that "...most trips have an underlying quest. We're looking for something. What? Fun, escape, adventure--but then what?"

Everyone travels for different reasons, but my question for you would be what are you looking for?

And, no matter what the answer to that may be, I can guarantee one thing-this trip can be life changing. To experience another culture, to open your eyes to another part of the world, to step in another's shoes, if even for a few days, it changes you, even if only a little. QueensLander's true small group tours to Italy deliver authentic Italy every time.

This is the "Great Cities of Italy Tour,” and we’ll be focusing on three of the most well-known in all of Europe - Venice, Florence (located in the heart of Tuscany), and Rome, along with overnight visit to enchanting Tuscany and Umbria.

Come join us and discover the Italy's Great Cities Tour in a small group setting.
Buon Viaggio/Good Travels!

What Really Sets our Italy tour apart from the rest?

Our very own professional Italian Guides coupled with our dedicated Tour Captain provide the perfect hosts for your off-the-beaten-path journey through Italy.

A small, friendly group of 6 to 16 travelers. No buses. No lines. Active travelers!

Our Hotels truly are in the very hearts of the cities, towns and villages - compare with mainstream companies and you'll see we mean what we say.

Dining Venues - not at the hotel buffet. Nightly dinner invitations, even on free nights, from your Tour Captain. Premium beverages, wine and cola all included.

No Annoying Up-Selling
while on tour - we don't think you should pay top dollar for a deluxe vacation and then be subjected to daily solicitation to spend more money. We've included an ample amount of sightseeing and included admissions.

Tips for drivers and guides, restaurant and hotel staff included. Optional tipping for your Tour Captain.

Of course it's included! We wouldn't visit Venice without the romantic experience of a gondola through the canals of Venice.

Our Italy's Great Cities True Small-Group® Tour not only includes the grand cities of Venice, Florence and Rome, but also two days in Tuscany and Umbria at our very own Tuscan winery. Taste the grapes and vino, tour the impressive facility and enjoy a full lunch paired with the perfect wine.

Our philosophy: included, organized and ready to travel!
