Nada's Italy was enormously helpful in all of my pre planning for a solo trip to Italy. The guides who were provided were very personable and extremely knowledgeable. The suggestions for restaurants and activities were very helpful. The office staff in Charlotte was so available and so helpful in every way. Anyone traveling to Italy should begin their planning with Nada's Italy.
Nada's is by far the best. My husband and I packed our bags and traveled to Sicily to experience a trip of a lifetime. The hotels, cities, and of course the food were all part of the package. Enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend Nada's for your next vacation.

This is a must for anyone wanting to go to France! From start to finish, it was pure perfection! The hotels, tours, activities, meals were all AMAZIING! And the Tour Directors were so wonderful and so knowledgeable. This was our second time traveling with Nada's Italy. The first was to the Amalfi Coast. If you want to experience Italy or France and enjoy a trip of a lifetime, I would highly recommend Nada's! I wouldn't use anyone else and am hoping that she expands to other destinations! Looking forward to our next adventure with Nada's.
I have heard nothing but, good things about this company and their tours!!!
I have been a regular traveller with Nada's Italy for 7 years. I am a single traveller and was hesitant to venture to Italy alone until I found Nada's Italy! I dreaded being herded onto a big tour bus!!! Their small, personal, friendly groups of just 12 are perfect whether you are single, a small group of friends or family or a couple. The tours are exceptional with excellent accomodations, fascinating itineraries, the best tour leaders in Italy, wonderful food and wine and comprehensive planning! You will see the sites you expect to see as well as some off the beaten path experiences you never imagined seeing. You will truly experience Italy....not just get paraded from site to site! I truly feel that Nada's Italy is the best and only way to see and experience Italy...or even Spain or France....I highly recommend them to anyone interested!! This fall I will be going on yet another of my many trips with them and am sure it will not be my last!!
