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

This company really knows their stuff and recommended our family to stay longer in each location. We didn't listen to them, but wished we had in every single place we went. They recommended Sestri Levante over the Cinque Terre which was our favourite destination on our entire trip. We visited Rome where we stayed in the outstanding Hotel Locorno where they know the owner there, like in every place we went. It made a difference in Italy when they knew who had arranged our trip, like they gave us special treatment or something.

We are planning on going back to Italy in 2020 and definitely having the IVS team organize everything!
