Experience Italy the Italian way
What makes the Passione Italiana trips to Italy unique?
Take a guided tour of the main Italian cities in the safe hands of experienced bilingual tour leaders. We’re a small specialist company organising trips to Italy. Together with our community of loyal customers, we’ll welcome you aboard and make you feel like you’re travelling with family. We’ll show you the real Italy from the famous sights to the hidden secrets, and help you avoid the tourist traps. We’ll go to the places where the locals go to eat and help you to communicate in authentic situations.
At the booking stage, we take the time to get to know you and listen to your needs, so we understand exactly what you want.
We speak italiano
Our trips are not only a great way to see Italy, but also an easy way to learn the language and practise using it. Don’t worry about your level of Italian, we create bespoke in-situation activities to make sure everyone gets to speak as much (or as little) as they want.
So, what’s involved?
The price you pay includes entrance to all the attractions we go to. You’ll also have the chance to visit the city alone or in small groups.
Eat with the locals
Lunchtimes are free times – we break up and everyone can eat where they like with whom they like. At dinner, we’ll take you to an authentic Italian restaurant, where you can experience the genuine taste of Italy and sample local cuisine. We split the dinner bill equally, alla romana, as we say in Italy, but everyone pays individually for what they drink, it’s only fair.
This is what separates us from the rest. Our native tour leaders will be with you throughout the day. When you are not learning about local history or famous artwork, we’ll handle all on-tour logistics and other needs you may have. We will look after you from breakfast to the nightcap!
Learning the language
We prepare unique language activities, games and tailor-made handouts which will help you learn Italian in real-life setting, expand your vocabulary and boost your confidence. Don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner or you already speak Italian, we’ll make sure that you get the right opportunity to communicate with native speakers and enrich your language skills. We also prepare a booklet containing useful vocabulary about the city and phrases to help you get around.
