Why Book With Us

Our Knowledge of Italy Is Second to None

In addition to Italy Vacation Specialists we own the Italy Education Center, with various retreat locations and teach travel professionals and retreat leaders from all over the world about how to organize better experiences in Italy and in order to be able to teach these remarkable courses, we ourselves have had to learn and acquire a level of understanding and knowledge about Italy which few other tour operators in the Italian market-place have.  

Each year, for travel agents we offer educational trips to a variety of regions and islands, usually theme-based, we help travel professionals from around the world get more familiar with Italy and using different transportation logistics such as private transfers for sightseeing experiences, or using driver-guides as ways to get into certain areas between various destinations that might be impossible to get to otherwise

Italy has a series of new laws regarding to vehicle entrances and permits near various city centers and in many instances driving can be a true headache, though in other areas we definitely think it's in your interest to rent a car.

We will help you navigate the waters and complications here in Italy to avoid you unnecessary stress and to get you away from the tourist traps, into the truly authentic and beautiful areas of Italy waiting to be discovered! 

Working with our consultants, we will not only assist you with many complications that may arise during your time here, but teach you about areas in Italy that are truly beautiful, less expensive and more rewarding to visit in many instances.

Client Testimonials

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
