Our passion was born and lies in this country and we welcome the opportunity to share it with you in planning  your “Dolce Vita”!


Benvenuti alla migliore agenzia per viaggi italiani! Welcome to the best agency for planning trips to Italy. If your goal is to explore and experience l’Italia Autentica … 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 Advisors, 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 relationships 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 dreams 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 traveled regions of this beautiful country. Our goal is to 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.
