At Ciao Travel, our forte is assisting and planning tailor-made itineraries for Leisure and Interest Groups and Independent travellers wishing to visit Europe, Britain and beyond.

We acknowledge your requirements, whether it is your first trip abroad as a group or independent traveller or one of many, and we are happy to provide guidance, make suggestions, and work closely with you to complete your itinerary with the aid of our extensive selection of services.


Small Group Tours

Small Group tour experiences are what we enjoy and our programs in Italy are specially customized for 8 to 14 people, with the necessary inclusions that are important for a successful touring holiday. Leave the hard work to us, and come along and enjoy “Slow Soft Travel”.

Our tour concept is to allow you to enjoy a true cultural and interactive experience in the company of our experienced professionals and other likeminded travellers, without having to worry about the day-to-day essentials and “little things”. We also like to allow our passengers time to retain a little independence to explore on their own.



Our accommodation throughout all our Italian small group tours is luxury boutique Hotels, B&Bs, Manor Houses and Country Villas, all with charm and character, offering friendly hospitality. Each property is located in superb ideal surroundings that are central and convenient to the area visited. All properties have modern facilities and some with swimming pools, gardens and spa therapy treatments.


Gourmet Cuisine & Wine

Food glorious food, another enjoyable highlight of our tours is the sampling of excellent gourmet and regional cuisine and brilliant wines, and Italy is one place where the cuisine cannot be missed. Each day begins with breakfasts; followed throughout the tour by most lunches and dinners in local restaurants, trattorie or agriturismi; plus the opportunity to sample wine and local produce tastings along the way or participate in a cooking class; We purposely leave some meals times free to allow flexibility and the opportunity for you to venture out for your own ‘foodie find’. 


Gardens & Garden Tours

We visit a selection of the most beautiful and eminent gardens in Italy, and for keen gardeners and admirers of gardens, or those of you simply interested in design, architecture and history, these magnificent places are worth the detour. We also assist with gardening tours and the visiting of gardens in France, Britain and other parts of Europe and other world destinations. 


Tour Highlights & Activities

We are accompanied by our professional local guides who are proud of all they can share about their homeland and their extensive knowledge of the main highlights of interest and memorable surprises visited, either on or off the beaten path.
