If you’ve envisioned it, you’ll see it, hear it, experience it, and taste it on this scenic and scintillating tour of Italy—from the historic Colosseum of Rome to the song-filled canals of Venice, the quiet back alleys of Assisi to the bold storefronts of Milan, and the sweet views of Lake Como to the bittersweet Aperol liqueur of Padua.

SALVATORE RUSSO

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

Anyone can tour Italy, but only a few can tour Italy "Salvatore Style". It includes an infectious smile greeting you each morning with a "buongiorno" and asking the question "Are you ready for the adventure that lies ahead?" Passionate enthusiasm drives his desire to introduce each traveler to the sights, sounds, treasures and cultures surrounding them, always with a playful sense of humor. "Why not?" becomes more than just a question, but a feeling that anything is possible on any given day, a challenge to embrace life and enjoy the ride! Navigating easily around the hustle, bustle and unexpected obstacles is a daunting task that Salvatore undertakes always with a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes.
