Start in Padua

Padua is refreshingly untouched by tourism compared to some of its fellow cities. Home to Italy’s oldest university, to Giotto’s remarkable frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel and to Europe’s biggest square, the Prato della Valle, three days in Padua are quickly filled.

 

Stay in the elegant contemporary Hotel Belludi 37 which aside from its reputation for outstanding service, is perfectly situated in the heart of the old town.

 

Take a river boat tour to Venice past the Palladian villas along the River Brenta and we can also arrange trips to Verona (and the opera).

... and end in Vicenza

This small UNESCO World Heritage town, "the city of Palladio", will amaze you with palaces, villas, numerous museums and great personalities that have characterized its history. A scenic city that has much more to offer like the Roman Vicenza, the Gothic Vicenza, the artistic-architectural religious heritage and the Christian tradition. Not to be missed: the Palladian Basilica, the Olympic Theater and the Chiericati Palace. The historic center contains all the most important works by Andrea Palladio.

With many of the city’s attractions closely clustered together inside the old town walls, a full day guided tour is a good option if time is limited.

The G Boutique Hotel is very centrally located, just 200m from the Teatro Olimpico and Palazzo Chiericati. Glamorous, indulgent and with a definite ‘wow’ factor, the hotel combines chic design with state-of-the-art technology.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
