Italy Tours

Italy. It's pretty much the envy of every other country in the world. It's the land of beautiful cars, beautiful landscapes, beautiful food and beautiful people. Italians are not just beautiful; they're passionate too. Everything is done with such love and care. In Italy, romance isn't just a matter of the heart. It's in the food, the fashion, the art, the architecture – everywhere! Love to go? Student Flights has Italy tours just waiting for you.

Fall in love with Italy

So, where to start your romantic tour of Italy? From the floating city of Venice in the north, of course. There are a range of Venice tours that'll make the most of your time in this little treasure trove of art, architecture and festivals. Make sure your Venice tour includes a gondola ride on the Grand Canal!

Most Italian tours will also take you through the beautiful Tuscany region. There's a range of Tuscany tours and Florence tours too. Both promise wonderful times for you and your stomach.

You can't tour Italy without seeing Rome. In fact, you'd better throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain to ensure a return trip. Rome is such an incredible city with so much history and picturesque locations. Rome tours are a great option if you only have time to see one city in Italy. Or pair your Rome tour with a tour of the Vatican City. Even if you're not religious, you should visit if only to see the Sistine Chapel.

There are heaps of other Italian tours worth checking out too such as Pompeii tours, Sicily tours, Amalfi Coast tours, Cinque Terre tours and so many more! Trafalgar tours Italy all year round too.

For all the goss on what's happening in Italy now, the lowdown on the best Venice tours, Tuscany tours, Florence tours, Rome tours, Vatican City tours and many more, call Student Flights. We've always got sweet deals on stacks of Italy tours, so give us a call today on 1800 046 46.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
