The Unknown Tour

Have you been waiting for something truly exciting and different? You just found it.
The "Unknown Tour" will take 12 brave travelers to unexplored destinations around Italy that will allow you to be immersed in the truly authentic village culture.  To add to the mystery (and the *slightly-sadistic-pleasure*), once you arrive in Italy, the itinerary will be revealed to you one...painfully...  What you will know ahead of time is: trip dates, the arrival & departure city, what's included (number of meals, transfers, hotel nights), and of course, the price. Begging and pleading for more will get you nowhere.  Everything else will be left to the imagination and slowly explored just the way we like it, moment by moment.

Every day will unravel unexpected destinations that are off-the-beaten-path and cultural immersions to lesser-known areas of Italy. Each trip is completely different and will not be repeated.So, are you ready for a travel experience unlike any other?
11 Days/10 Nights May 17-27, 2024 USD $8,650 price per person based on double occupancy (12 travelers max). Call today to book your spot for this amazing and unique adventure!
