DESTINATION FIRST Choosing the places you want to go is a first priority for many. Those best known, iconic places are just that, for good reason, and worth many a repeat visit.
THEMES & INTERESTS Some travellers are drawn by a more specific interest, or a desire to experience a locality, the culture and traditions at greater depth.
TOURS & ITINERARIES Ready-made itineraries have been developed to cater for groups or one or two, either guided or completely self-driven with all information at the ready.
FULLY FACILITATED Many travellers prefer the ease of a fully booked/fully facilitated service. We have the best professionals in all regions ready to travel and assist at all times
Our love affair with Umbria
With more than 20 years living and working in Umbria, with the amazing city of Orvieto as our home base, we at Discovering Italy are passionate about everything that this very special region has to offer. It remains largely unspoilt by the mass tourism taking over much of the peninsula and, together with towns along its long wavering borders, still offers up hidden gems, a particular tradition in foods and wine, festivals, time-honoured practices - and simply the loveliest of people. It is always a joy and a pleasure to introduce our travellers to some of these unexpected delights.
In all of these special places, regional, big cities, small places, rural retreats, we have equally special people to take care of you, to guide and facilitate all travel and activities. However, if you prefer to be fully (or partially) independent, we will help make the best possible schedule of events and activities to complement your time and requirements as well as provide maps and information booklets to accompany your journeys. No matter how you choose to travel, we will also provide suggestions on where to eat, when to make visits and things to avoid. It is all part of our plan "to make your journey the best it can be."
