Why join me on my small group tours of Italy

​If you have been following me on the Rocky Travel Blog  for a while you may know that I am a solo travel addict.
I've been ​travelling alone for +25 years around the world and ​started ​my solo adventures in my 20s ​in Italy, ​my home country, where I came back to reside a while ago.
I have a love & hate relationship with Italy. I love the food, the culture and the fact that no matter where you are in Italy there is always a charming place round the corner to explore. But at the same time I hate the chaos and ​its complicated​ rules.
​This year I will be ​launching
my small group tours to ​Australia too​. But because many of you are from Australia and ​the U.S.A, some have asked why not add Italy Tours!
​​I'm thrilled about it and love the idea of ​​showing you my home country with the knowledge of an insider and - at the same time - seeing it through the eyes of a first-time traveller!

​Why Small Groups Tours to Italy

My guided tours of Italy are specially designed for the fit solo traveller who is +30 and loves to travel alone but also need a special boost of inspiration ​that only a small group of like-minded travellers can bring. While I will define the frame of each Small Group Tour​ of Italy, once the minimum number of 6 participants is achieved, I will work out on the details, according to your input (please send it via email).

​My Italy tours have a prevalence of outdoor and nature, as these ​are the core activities of the tours. However we might use a ferry for a day-trip to the Venice islands, or we will have private taxi for a transfer from A to B. Train travel is also included in the trip and tour itinerary.

I will be personally escorting all my Italy Tours​. When hiking in the Dolomites a trusted private mountain guide will join us to lead the hike. But apart from the main hiking trip, I ​will be running all walks in parks and ​cities.

What to expect from my Solo Group Tours of Italy 

We will be active in the nature and exploring the Italian mountains, mainly in the Prealps and the Venetian Dolomites. Next to walking in the nature and hiking in the mountains we will be ​discovering cities like Venice, Triest and more ​lovely villages and places of Northern Italy. Eating the most exquisite Italian food, getting to know the locals ​and making new friends will be part and parcel of my group tours.  ​

We will not be spending multiple days in museums ​, nor on food tours though. We will have a little bit of everything with a focus on the great outdoors. To sum it up how we will be spending the time together and give you an idea of the main activities, here is a rough breakdown of the tour: 50% outdoor, 30% italian cities and culture 20% italian food and wine hands-on experiences.

W​hom is the Italy Tour good for

​​An average good level of fitness is required, we will not be climbing nor doing any extreme sports, but you must be fit to walk and visit cities on foot ​as well as walking on signed hiking trails for 3-5 hours a day on 2 ​or 3 days of the tour length. ​

My Italy Tours are perfect for the Solo Traveller who love​s a good mix of outdoor adventures and cultural activities, getting to know the locals by exploring iconic attractions as well as less touristy places.

We will not be staying in hostels, ​but prefer cozy guesthouses like B&B and unique hotel locations, but on the overnight hikes we will be staying in ​basic mountain huts, so you must be flexible with this too.
