YOU DON’T EXPLORE IT, YOU LIVE IT
At VITOR we want you to experience the heart and soul of Italy, by living as an Italian for the time of your tour. We want you to be able to understand it deeply, as well as fell the spirit of its people. That’s why we will melt into it. Take an espresso in a bar, dine in a little restaurant, shop in local bottegas, admire a well-known masterpiece in a famous city or walk into a small church at the discovery of a hidden treasure. That’s Italy, just relax and take it easy.
THE ROAD IS THE JOURNEY
Everybody dreams about Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan. But Italy is much, much more! Discover the true essence of its beauty on the way from town to town, stopping by in little cities, taking scenic routes, eating in local trattorias or just visiting an ancient site around the corner.
You will visit locations which are not accessible to large groups, living art, culture, food in a unique way and making your journey an out-of-the-ordinary experience.
ITALY IS THE COUNTRYSIDE
Looking across the countryside for less popular yet astonishing attractions, villages, castles, abbeys and other spots through rural territory, you’ll find vestiges of a time when countryside was more peopled and important than the present-day one. Today these locations propose a new model of sustainable tourism, and you may try country accommodation, very popular in Italy, with houses and buildings of great historical and monumental value.
TAKE IT EASY
Italians take it easy, that's the spirit of the country. So, when we design a tour we like to set a relaxed pace, after all it is a holiday so no long drives and no early starts. We always build in plenty of free time to ensure that you have the chance to see things for yourself and socialize with local people. Stroll in squares, take a coffee, stop by for views, buy your own prosciutto and cheese and eat it in the countryside, this is all part of your Italian experience.
365 DAYS OF FULL EXPERIENCE
Italy is beautiful 365 days a year, even when the weather is not perfect. Undoubtedly summer months are the best time to visit Italy, due to the warmer climate. July and August are the 'peak' months when most of the country is on holiday and you might find more popular areas particularly busy. If you prefer to travel away from the crowds, May and June as well as September and October can be more pleasant. Winter months are great alternatives to experience Italy’s festive seasons, November and December being the best winter months to travel and catch Christmas Markets and the best sales!
ITALIANS LIKE TO STAY TOGETHER
We are 60 million people in a narrow space (take the mountains out), so it can happen that once in a while you’ll stumble upon a crowd. That’s Italy, especially in more popular locations. Also, you can find yourself in city centers where people gather for the sake of spending some time in open air, meeting with friends or shopping. But on the way you’ll find plenty of places where peace is assured, in churches or monasteries, along country routes and paths, in hidden museums or even on the shores of a lake. Just relax and enjoy your Italian experience.
