fountain in ItalyBenvenuti alla migliore agenzia per viaggi italiani! Welcome to the best agency for planning trips to Italy. If your goal is to explore and experience La Vera Italia … the true Italy … then you have come to the right place!

Our agency was started in 1966 by the Capocelli brothers, Vittorio and Mario, born and raised in Naples, Italy. As you will notice when you Meet Our Staff, the Capocelli name still remains a staple in our company. Our president, Stella Capocelli Carter, was raised in Italy and actually learned English as her second language. Today, we are very active in Italian American Cultural and Business organizations and have developed personal rapport with many small hotels and experienced service providers throughout Italy. Our bilingual skills have proven to be an invaluable asset for your personalized travel planning.

Although we represent several tour operators that offer group bus tours to the country, our specialty is in making your individual Italian dream come true. Whether your wish is to enjoy a honeymoon with a private gondola ride, to marvel during a private drive along the Amalfi Coast, to admire the Unfinished works of Michelangelo in Florence, to research and visit your ancestral home or simply to stroll along the streets of Orvieto after a cooking class and before ending up at Valentina’s Bed & Breakfast, we can offer you an Italy that is genuine and welcoming to its guests. And, don’t be surprised, if the Capocelli name surfaces again as you are guided through the unforgettable streets of Rome …

We have found that many websites and travel agencies offer canned trips to Italy offering the basic Rome, Florence, Venice itineraries. The difference in our approach is that, in addition to giving you the basics, we introduce you to other less travelled regions of this beautiful country and ensure your comfort as you explore the culture and various cuisines of the areas. You will be intrigued by the people, by the language, the food and the wine and most certainly by the lifestyle that you can experience and live, not just observe from the window of a large tour bus. And, as a side benefit, you might even learn to speak a little Italian before you embark on your individual or small group trip. We offer several escorted trips yearly and can customize to your specifications.

Our passion lies in this country and we welcome the opportunity to share it with you in planning Travel to Italy!

I want to thank you for a wonderful tour of Italy!  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and touring with a terrific group of people.  Stella, you are so great at what you do….the passion comes through beautifully.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to be part of your group and to experience lifetime memories!

During a meeting today I was sitting there dreaming/thinking about the trip.  Don’t tell anyone!!! Ha Ha!  Seriously, the trip was perfect.  I would highly recommend the Tauck Tour accommodations, meals, the group of individuals – couldn’t have been any better.  I feel the same about the trip to Orvieto.  Seeing the papal blessing was something I never expected to see, I especially enjoyed the dinner in Rome, Sunday evening.  The trip to Assisi  was very special.  Orvieto was a great experience.  You did a wonderful job of organizing everything.  We enjoyed everyone in the group – they were very nice and they all made us feel so welcome.  Thanks for everything.

Those two words just aren’t enough! We LOVED our trip and we were so happy with all of your planning. It was so nice to be worry-free. Thank you so much for arranging our quaint stay in friendly Orvieto and our artsy, modern stay at the Capo d’Africa. Orvieto was AMAZING; from that gorgeous duomo to the surrounding vistas. We were so glad we added it to the beginning of our trip. We really got to experience life in a small town and the food was spectacular.  We’re planning to whittle our fabulous photos (around 1,800 of them!) down and create a photo book of our trip. It’s going to be hard because there were so many beautiful images around every corner. We did a whirlwind tour of Rome and it was so nice to be near a lot of wonderful places to eat at the end of a long day. We mustered just enough energy to see the colosseum all lit up in the evening before calling it a night.  You really have to book yourself some time on SeaDream. We will only book with them from now on, we’re hooked. The Caribbean cruises aren’t so badly priced and they seem to have specials often. The crew and staff treated us so well. The food was divine. There was a wonderful mix of people. and tons of things to do on such a small ship. We felt so spoiled and pampered. Our favorite excursion was above Amafli in a town called Ravello. We fell in love with this little town. It’s the perfect escape for an artist to refuel, beautiful vistas Rufolo Gardens and Villa, live concerts outside and lots of artisans. We even were invited into a home to see their private gardens. Everyone was so friendly and easy going. Italy over all was exceptional.  I’ve already passed your name along to one friend who wants to go in October of next year. If any others ask, I’ll do the same. Thank you again for helping us with our dreamcation!
