Why Join Our Small Group Tours of Italy Over 50?

Hi, I'm Michela, the owner of Rocky Travel, a travel website for solo travellers over 50 to Italy and Australia. I started to solo travel in my 20s in Italy, my home-country, and since then I've been travelling for +35 years. I love the food, the culture and the fact that no matter where you are in Italy, there is always a charming place around the corner to explore. 

I'm thrilled to show you Italy, with the a big passion and the knowledge of insiders. I like to empower solo female travellers to enjoy life after 50 and travel more solo in a small group of like-minded travellers. Take a look at our small groups for over 50, and how you can join us in our fully guided tours of Italy, Sicily Tours + the Dolomites Trips.

I’d recommend Rocky Travel to anyone who likes active travel with small groups and is interested in getting to know Sicily and all its cultural, historic and natural aspects. Michela, and our Sicily expert guides and our wonderful driver, were incredibly helpful and informative throughout the trip planning and on tour.

My friend and I traveled with Michela on the Best Sicily Tour in May-June of 2019 and what an awesome trip it was! We had not been to Sicily before and this trip showcased the beautiful island in a wonderful way. I felt like we were truly off the beaten path with the excursions and destinations. Michela was great, very responsive before and during the trip. I would highly recommend this Sicily Tour and loved the fact that it was a small group tour of 10 people, many of whom were seasoned, active hikers and walkers. A perfect vacation!

Michela, the trip organizer, also Italian, was extremely helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was a fabulous introduction to Sicily, and I highly recommend it, especially if you are not familiar with Sicily. Very reasonably priced and good value for money. For sure I’ll be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Sicily. Travelling with Rocky Travel was so easy and well-organized. Michela and our local guide Angela always ensured we had enough time to see everything while bonding with other women travelling in the group. The accommodations were well chosen and often located where walking into town during our free time was easy.  My experience with Rocky Travel in Sicily was super good, and I highly recommend any tours organized by Rocky Travel.

What Clients Say Of Our Trips

My trip to the Dolomites with a group of women who had never met before was great!  We all got along and enjoyed the company.  The places we visited were amazing.  The mountain scenery was incredible.  Wild flowers, cows with their big bells.  We happened to be at a beautiful hotel in the mountains for the proprietress' birthday party and were invited.  There was the celebration of the Sacred Heart with big bonfires all along the mountain tops.  Every place we stayed was wonderful.  If it was be chance or great planning, the trip was wonderful and created a million memories.

RHONDA Manfredo | FReSno, USA

Michela is professional, experienced, and very patient with my group of 7. She goes out of her way to help us, even helping me find a good pair of hiking shoes when mine gave way. She also advised us on our onward trip to other parts of Italy. I recommend using Rocky Travel if you want to explore the Dolomites as Michela is so experienced  in this area and you will have a great time with her enjoying the awesome Dolomites.


If possible, do a small tour group like the Rocky Travel Tours of Sicily. That way, you have better customer service, and the little bus provides greater mobility, while the unavoidable toilet stops are not as long. The Rocky Travel Tour of Sicily suited me, so I was with like-minded people! The Best of Sicily Tour had a right balance of organised activities and free time.

JameS Burke | Perth, WEST AUSTRALIA

Dolomites were breathtakingly beautiful with the rocky peaks and lush rolling mountains. Travelling with a small group of open minded women who were willing to take on the mountains, changing weather, train and bus schedules.   Hiking was a little challenging but made the drinks even more tastier after hiking.  Local people were friendly and lovely to see people wearing there regions costumes. Well planned trip, relaxing, challenging with a few laughs along the way.  Hope to make it back some day. Overall a great trip to South Tyrol.
