The Secret Italy Tour

The authentic flavors, the unknown destinations, the legendary chefs and the delightful towns from history…this exclusive tour provides an insider’s experience in Italy.

So much of Italy is kept a secret from the tourist masses. Like learning tortellini and tagliatelle with a Bolognese chef, hunting for truffles in the woods, exploring labyrinthine old villages and tasting vintage wines kept back in the cellars. Handcrafted as a VIP tour, this itinerary reveals the secrets through intimate encounters and experiences; we are the only owner-operator tour operator to offer many of these activities.


    On a secret tour you can travel in many directions, from Parmisan to Parma, Chianti to Umbria. We will carefully customize an Italy tour to the flavors and experiences you’re seeking to uncover, pulling from a range of activities that stretch all across the country.

    All our tours are individually customized to your interests. This day to day program was designed for previous guests of Italy Charme. While we loved guiding this private tour, it is purely an example of what can be possible and we will tailor your day to day program to your interests.
