Academy Travel began by offering small-group cultural tours to Italy, and these remain a cornerstone of our operations. Our popular Sicily itinerary offers a comprehensive survey of the island, whereas our regular ‘residential style’ journeys to Rome, Venice and Florence offer an unrivalled chance to get to know these major centres of history and art in the company of an expert tour leader. In northern Italy, we offer guided tours of the Italian lakes, and our garden tours of Italy cover Lazio, Tuscany and the Veneto in depth. We also offer a range of art tours to Italy, covering everything from ancient Roman art and architecture to medieval Italy and the glorious art of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque.
