The Treasures of Italy tours are organized for smaller groups and are carefully arranged and accompanied by Italian Wine Services, LLC founder, Alan Amaral, who has studied extensively in Italy, speaks Italian, and is experienced in leading group tours to Italy.

"Been there, but didn't do that !"  The tours include visits to some of Italy’s smaller country areas so that an interestingly varied and fun-filled visit to Italy may be experienced. Some of our travelers have been to Italy one or more times, but have not witnessed some of the lesser-visited places.  For those wishing to study the Italian language, information about Italy’s language schools and accommodations is provided by contacting us via our Contact page below.

Whether you are an experienced Italy traveler or a first time adventurer to Italy, with Italian Wine Services you will return from Italy with two questions:

1. Why didn’t I do this sooner? and,

2. When am I coming back?

Testimonials of Some of Our Travelers:

"This is proof God is the world’s greatest painter."  (Looking over Tuscan countryside from Castello di Banfi in Montalcino)

"I Loved every minute-Alan is the best!"

"Thank you for all you did...we always feel safe and secure with your guidance and leadership."
