The Sweet Life...

…the powerful majesty of the Colloseum, the charm of traditional villages, the ominous volcanoes of Mt. Vesuvius and Mt. Etna, the turquoise waters of the Tyrrhenian, the magnificent architecture of the classical world…

The Sweet Life…found in Italy, a land that is the essence of La Dolce Vita. A region long renowned as a center of culture, history, religion and romance, this country should top every traveler’s wish list. From fortified hilltop towns to the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast, the Sweet Life awaits.

With just one phone call, Hellenic Adventures can plan your moment of paradise in Italy. Our Independent Travel packages offer itineraries you are unlikely to find anywhere else. With
intimate hotels and knowledgeable local guides, we’ll take you to the known and unknown
places of this enchanted country, with visits to museums brimming with masterpieces of the Renaissance, classical ruins, grand marble-clad cathedrals, stunning landscapes, and unforgettable journeys along spectacular backroads.

Some features of our premier service:

•Your sightseeing tours are private, not with an enormous tour bus of camera clickers, so you can have a conversation with the knowledgeable local guides. After an afternoon with your guide, you are sure to have made a new friend in a new land.

• We also provide you special touches that will make your trip so special, you’ll remember it forever. Your final itinerary includes a map with your route highlighted and driving times listed, so that you need not feel lost or unsure of how long a drive will take in a foreign land. Welcome and Farewell gifts let you know, from start to finish, that we want this trip to be perfection itself.

• Each itinerary uses a variety of charming, small hotels, so that whether you stay in a five-star deluxe hotel or a three-star tourist-class pension, you know you have the best value in the area: high quality of service, central location, and special local touches. While other choices are available if you wish to upgrade or downgrade services, we feel sure you’ll find your stay was "worth every penny," as our clients are known to say.

• Travel with peace of mind. Our custom Preferred Benefits travel insurance includes trip cancellation and interruption coverage up to your full trip cost along with a full range of medical and baggage insurance. With coverage for terrorism, protection against third-party default, and waiver of pre-existing conditions, the only worry is how best to enjoy your freedom of travel.

All trips reflect the deep knowledge of Hellenic Adventures owner Leftheris Papageorgiou, who has logged thousands of miles in Italy, seeking out the best, most unique places to inspire the visitor.
