Italy

Soft Mediterranean breezes rustle palms along the boardwalk of southern beaches. Fragrant olive and lemon groves dot the agricultural Piedmont. Cool mountain streams cascade in tumults off snow-covered Alps. Art, fashion, music and architecture flourish in the cities. Then, there's the food. You know what they say: "When in Rome...eat!"

Rave Reviews

My husband and I learned about Friendly Planet Travel through friends who went on a trip to China. They returned home raving about the great value and good time they and other travelers had while in the Far East. We began our own study of Friendly Planet trips and found one to Italy that offered just about everything but cannolis. Based just outside San Gimignano, we were more than satisfied with the family-owned Hotel Sovestro, had no issues with our little rental car, found it an easy public bus ride to and from Florence and even a night of opera music in Siena. Added to our travel bliss was a non-stop Emirates flight to and from Milan and JFK/New York. There was also much joy in making new friends who were also guests at Hotel Sovestro. Thank you, staff, for making this a most memorable trip. You'll be hearing from us again.

[Italian Treasures] was wonderful and we are very pleased that we chose Friendly Planet as our tour provider. Our tour director, Flavio Nicoletti, was top-notch in every way. He was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fun-loving. He went out of his way on many occasions to ensure that our group had the best possible experience. He arranged wonderful excursions, including an evening at a Tuscan Farmstead which my travel mates and I will always remember as a highlight of our trip. I co-host a radio Morning Show in North Carolina. During the trip I called into the show to report on the trip. Flavio even agreed to join me during the call and go on the air with us! He did a great job! My friends and I now feel that we have a friend in Rome. We are so thankful to Flavio and to Friendly Planet for making our once-in-a-lifetime trip so special and memorable.
