Whether you’re already considering visiting Italy or are still choosing a destination, you can’t go wrong with a visit to this enchanting country.
Italy is located in south-central Europe and has been occupied by many different civilizations over the years. This, of course, includes the Romans and you’ll find some of the best Roman architecture in the world here.
But, Italy is also a romantic country. It’s visible in the way Italians express themselves, the sights, and even the food. With so much to offer there really is something for everyone.
Of course, Italy is also relatively large and you will have a limited time to explore while you’re there. That’s why you need to consider booking a private guided tour in Italy. There is no better way to see everything you need to and find places that only the locals know about.
You’ll need to plan carefully.
Consider Your Budget
You will have a finite budget but you’ll also be surprised at how far that budget can go in Italy. It is important to know what you can afford and then select your destinations accordingly. If your funds are low you’ll find it is cheaper to visit in winter. This is often the best time to appreciate the sights and there will be fewer tourists. Choosing winter means you may get a deal on your private tour.
Work Out What’s Important To You
The key to a successful private guided tour in Italy is to know what you want to see. For example, you can visit Rome, Sorrento, and Positano, or you can plan 16 days exploring Venice, Florence, the Amalfi Coast, Sardinia, and Rome. If you prefer, it can be delightful to visit Florence and Tuscany, it’s the ultimate romantic getaway.
Italy is big enough that you can’t see it all, so consider carefully what you want to see and then book your private guided tours accordingly.
Check the Company
You’ll want to know that you are using a reputable private guided tour firm. The easiest way to check their reputation is by looking online at social media. Remember, mainly positive results are a good sign, it’s almost impossible to get all positive feedback.
But, it’s not just about the reviews. You need a company that is locally based. No one knows Italy better than those that live there. It’s the most effective way to discover the hidden secrets Italy has to offer.
You should speak to the company before booking. If you’re spending time with a private guide you’ll want to feel comfortable spending time with them.
Even if you want to visit Italy in the winter months you’ll find that tours can quickly get booked up. That means it’s not really possible to book your holiday too far in advance. In fact, booking early is likely to get you a better deal and will ensure you get to see everything you want to.
There is no point in visiting Italy and not seeing the sights that you wanted to!
