Bespoke, beautifully crafted. Designed and styled just for you. A perfect fit. To match your taste. Touch the essence. Never the same. See much-loved places with new eyes or discover somewhere totally new. Our Italy, travelled far and wide, still holds surprises, big and small. We are at home in countries around the world. We have a very clear map in our heads. How far do you want to go? Curiosity has no limits, our research never ends … We work, for you.

What’s to your TASTE?

We organize:

  • tailored itineraries and holidays
  • weddings and honeymoons
  • courses and workshops
  • hands-on experiences
  • theme camps
  • fam trips
  • events
  • corporate and incentive trips

for individuals and (small) groups
for the curious vacationer and for the business traveller


We will do our utmost to satisfy all your requests: we will design a trip to suit just you. You can rely on our (direct) experience, on our ability to listen and understand the precise details of your needs, and on a network of carefully selected experts and local people.

Working with you we’ll find the very best that each place has to offer. If you like to embrace something different, immerse yourself in a culture, enjoy its food and its landscape, experience a tasting room, lose yourself in a painting or gaze in wonder at the nave of a church, if you love haute couture or are a street fashionista, do not hesitate to tell us.

We have traveled hundreds of thousands of kilometers by all means of transport, even on foot. We enjoy dishes prepared by Michelin-starred chefs and trying great wines; but we also love the taste of bread and chocolate and spring water, sitting on a mountain top or in an urban park. We know well the comfort of a chain hotel, the fascination of a resort, the charm of a historic building, the shelter offered by an alpine hut.

We are true professionals, people who plan experiences with character, for people of character.

We’ve been traveling forever. For work, for pleasure, alone, as a couple, with the family, with friends, old and new. We have twenty years of experience as travel consultants and teachers of tourism studies. We’re authors of guidebooks and publications on tourism, travel, food and culture with the leading Italian publishing houses. We love what we do. We like to go just that bit further, off the usual tracks, exploring deeper, going beyond the surface. Seeking new situations, sensations and destinations that leave a mark or signal a significant new trend.
