Italy Group Tours for Solo Travelers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to Italy
Why Travel Solo To Italy?
Timeless beauty, intriguing ruins and world-famous cuisine are just a few reasons why Italy is one of Europe’s best-loved destinations for traveling solo.
Rome, Florence, Puglia. The vineyards of Tuscany and the ruins of Pompeii. Even if you’ve never set foot in Italy, chances are you’re already familiar with snapshots of its best-known attractions, such is the reach of its beauty.
But where to start? Well, Rome is home to epic sights such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Roman Forum. In Tuscany, medieval hilltop towns and fairytale castles peek out between snaking rows of cypress trees, encircled by bountiful ancient olive groves and vine-stitched vineyards. And, along with that wine (hello, Chianti region) and it’s here that you’ll also encounter the lifeblood of Italian cuisine (heaped bowls of panzanella, half-moon tordelli pasta and wafer-thin slices of truffle, freshly foraged from the forest).
Finally, head south to Puglia for sun-soaked escapism, where you can cycle past the region’s iconic cone-shaped trullo huts and explore white-washed fishing villages along the Adriatic and Ionian coasts.
Top places to visit in Italy
The Romans left their impact across the world, but it’s in Italy’s capital that you’ll find the pinnacle of their cultural and architectural influence. From the Colosseum and Roman Forum, to the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon Temple, there’s a whole host of history for solo travelers to explore
Feast on Renaissance art and world-class food, all on the banks of the Arno River. This city is home to a host of paintings and sculptures by great artists like Botticelli and Michelangelo. The architecture is just as impressive, with medieval candle-lit chapels and fresco-decorated churches.
The beautiful heel of Italy has managed to remain slightly off the beaten track. Dotted with whitewashed fishing villages, ‘trulli’ stone huts with distinctive conical roofs, picturesque beaches and ancient olive groves; you’ll feel like you’ve really discovered true rural Italy here.
Built on 100 small islands in a shallow lagoon, Venice is an exquisite jewel box of Renaissance and Gothic architecture. With no roads, just waterways – including the bustling Grand Canal – the best way to explore is by boat or to lose yourself in the backstreets of the atmospheric neighbourhoods.
