DISCOVER EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL TO ITALY

Fewer Tourists, Special Access, Hidden Gems

In every corner of my native Italy, I’ve sought out the best of its landscapes, cities, villages, art, cuisine and people. Many are famous or popular, but many others remain undiscovered or rarely experienced. I hope you’ll let me share them all with you.

Discover A More Authentic Italy

Giovanna Chiti
Italy Travel Specialist and Founder of Discover my Italy

My passion and expertise is Italy, and I’m dedicated to opening the real doors of my native country to you, so that you have an authentic experience and the Italian vacation of your dreams. In every corner of my country I’ve searched for beauty, for the pleasure of its scenery in its towns and small villages. Many of these places are famous or well known, but many are still there to be discovered or to be experienced.

For over 30 years I’ve been the leading authority on tours to Italy celebrating my country’s beauty, history, art, fashion, food, wine… in a few words, “La Dolce Vita.”

I promise you unique itineraries, exclusive access and effortless travel. My commitment is to offer you an experience that has depth and richness and that you could not do on your own. My team and I are eager to share with you the Italy that we know so well and love so much.

Arrivederci! Hope to see you soon in Italy...Giovanna
