Sometimes the greatest luxury is no luxury at all — simple, stark nature; beautiful vistas as far as the eye can see; the feeling of being disconnected from everyone and everything. This is what it’s like on Pantelleria, a Sicilian island most people have never heard of, and that fancy pants Italians like to keep in their back pocket when they want to really get away. Closer to Africa than mainland Italy, Pantellieria is about as close to a tropical desert island vibe as you can get (with all the comforts you need though). Stay at a resort like Sikelia, or spend your days lounging in the hammock at your very own dammuso, the white-domed houses traditional to the area.


You can’t get more Venice With a Capital V than Club del Doge. Float up in time for your reservation on a gondola and you’ll have the full trifecta — quintessential Venetian transportation to enjoy new interpretations of classic Venetian dishes right on the Grand Canal itself. Try the spider crab with coral salad, or tuck into chef Daniele Turco’s tasting menu for a seasonal surprise.


Helping our guests plan their travel! Did you know that we offer complimentary trip consultation to all of our tour guests, so that they can extend their holiday before or after their time with us in Sicily or the Cinque Terre? Now that it’s almost February, we’ve had some great Zoom sessions, offering our own personalized advice for hotels, restaurants, activities and more in places like Florence, Naples, and Rome — stops our springtime tour guests are making at the top and tail ends of their time in Italy. We’ve even recruited local experts to hop on and dish about the latest and greatest in their home cities. If you’re starting to feel that irresistible pull and want to get a holiday on the books, we’ve got a few spots left on both our Cinque Terre and Sicily women-only tours in May. Reply to this email for more information — we would love to have you join us!


Oh man, we have been waiting more than two long years for the feeling of freedom and companionship and fun that our tours bring, and we are chomping at the bit to meet our May Cinque Terre and Sicily guests under the warm Italian sun. Here I am in Sicily on a past trip.
