Glam Italia Tours are boutique a la carte private tours of Italy for small groups of women.
how it works
The smaller group size gives us freedom and flexibility to spend our time
the way we want to. We can keep exploring little Tuscan villages for as long
as we want to, have 3 hour lunches with vineyard views or grab a panino
and run to the Prada outlet – everything happens at our own pace, not on a big tour company schedule.
If you don’t want to be on a big bus tour with an umbrella waving guide, a
headset and 40 other people; if you want more than the typical 5 hours in a town that you get with a cruise; but if going it alone feels too overwhelming, a Glam Italia Tour may just be perfect for you! In a post Covid world travelers need to rethink taking big bus tours and cruises. Small group, personalized travel is definitely the way of the future. On Glam Italia Tours we mix seeing some of the big tourist attractions such as the Colosseum and the Vatican, with exploring fabulous places that are a
little off the beaten track, places the tour buses don’t go.
My travelers get to meet and mingle with local Italians, shop in village
markets, enjoy drinking prosecco or cappuccino in exquisite, centuries old piazzas and dine in real Italian restaurants – the places Italians eat, far from the tourist crowds! Even when we are in the main tourist cities, Venice, Florence and Rome, we are far from the crowds, seeing things the masses don’t know about and having an entirely different travel experience.
Tell Me More About The Glam Italia Tours!
All Glam Italia Tours are a la carte, so they are built around your interests. My signature tour encompasses Venice, Florence and Tuscany, The Amalfi Coast and Capri and my favorite city in the world, Rome. I also offer tours to Puglia, Sicily and the Italian Riviera.
Many of my travelers come back for repeat tours, Italy has so much to offer you can keep coming back
over and over and not see the same thing twice!
In my book Glam Italia! How To Travel Italy I talk about how important it is to create incredible experiences, and that is the focus of the Glam Italia Tours. Yes you will see some amazing sights, but more than that you will have endless fabulous experiences.
Glam Italia Tours are for women aged 35 and above. Sorry guys – this is girl time. Everything we do is female-centric
No, Glam Italia Tours are not expensive. They cost a little more than the mainstream big bus
tours but are priced for normal folks. Part of the point of doing this was to open up the
opportunity to travel for regular people. For the average person a tour of Italy can seem out of
reach, but really it can be quite accessible!
The Glam Italia Tours use vacation rental apartments, villas, castles and palaces instead of hotels. I have to tell you, you will never forget staying in a centuries old palazzo/apartment/villa
– the experience is just magic! Another benefit to staying in vacation rentals is that we get the experience of shopping in local markets and supermarkets. This lets us feel as though we are actually living in Italy for a while rather than just visiting.
Eating out 3 times per day can be both exhausting and expensive, and you end up eating more than you want to. Having the opportunity to make the choice to eat in or eat out each day is quite freeing! The way I see it we are all grown ups and if you want to eat in or eat out it is entirely up to you! Typically we do a mixture of the two, with everyone generally opting to do the same
