Distinctively Different

What does your Italian dream include?  A villa with your friends and family, or perhaps wonderful hotels, grand or quaint.  The romance of Venice, the fascinating history of Rome, and aaahhhh…the Amalfi Coast. Or-maybe a week or so in the wine country that is the heart of Italy.  Let us stitch your unique dream together. The sky is the limit.

If you prefer to spend an immersive week in one particular region may we suggest our all-inclusive tours.  These are tailored for those who want to explore the rich Italian culture in luxury, while staying in a villa.  You will explore food and wine experiences off the beaten track with few tourists.

Not a tour in the traditional sense — just 12 to 16 like-minded guests who want a seamless vacation with a private chef.  You will meet local artisans that will welcome you like family to their world of cheese, olive oil, and winemaking to name a few.  These experiences will further your intrigue of the Italians and their passion for life.  Your heart will be captured with memories to last a lifetime.

And if one week is not enough, we can recommend other areas to explore based on your particular interests.  We can also customize an all-inclusive package for your family and friends whether you want a villa, farmhouse, a quaint boutique hotel, or to visit several regions in Italy.

Or, may we suggest our new collection of tours offering you a B&B, or a boutique hotel while experiencing the same great tours from our villa program. This is best suited for those that want an ala carte vacation. These work well whether you want your own rental car, or a private driver.

I spent 30 years selling the world for 3 cruise lines, but now I offer you my first love: Italy.  I will introduce you to my Italian friends while making your dreams come true!

What others say about us

“We stayed at Villa Caterina and had an amazing time. The tours were fantastic. Our tour guide, Lucia, was lovely, very hospitable and so knowledgeable. The itinerary was well balanced between organized tours and with time on our own to explore, or relax at the villa. The accommodations were stunning with private spacious en-suite bedrooms, all beautifully decorated. All of our meals at the Villa were deliciously prepared and served by an amazing staff. I would most certainly recommend this experience.”

“Our villa was beautifully decorated with all the comforts; spacious rooms boasting gorgeous views  looking over the Tuscan hillsides. Many locations for social or quite moments were available with multiple choices of indoor and outdoor lounging and dining areas, including an outdoor oven where delicious Italian pizza was cooked for us.  Meals were delicious. We had a lot of fun during our private cooking class, learning the art of pasta making. I highly recommend Dream Italian Villas & Tours.”

“I have worked with Claudia for over 14 years, when I was managing a cruise division for a large travel agency. When working with Claudia she always had attention to detail and made sure she took care of my clients as if they were her own. She always took ownership over all she did. She has integrity, and does a stellar job helping people with their travels to Italy.”

“My all inclusive vacation to Tuscany with Claudia could not have been better.  From start to finish, I enjoyed the luxurious features and beauty of the villa and its setting, the interesting and informative excursions with Lucia, our tour guide, and the incredible food and wine that Italy is known for.  This was a real vacation, one that left me feeling fulfilled and recharged, and one that I left knowing I would be doing again!  As a seasoned worldwide traveler I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to get away from mobs of tourists and experience an authentic Italy in a turnkey fashion.  This is a great value for the price.”
