    We live here

    We design tours better than others because we live here

    Italy is a marvelous land because it is so diverse in all its manifestations across the country: different areas mean different cultures, different food, different dialects, different landscapes.

    We will introduce you to this variety with the passion that moves us when we travel in our own country.

    Understand Italy in deep with our experiences

    Italians are welcoming and friendly, and they put their heart and soul in everything they do. So visit Italy with us “on the road”, along its many routes, among its people, looking for the very traditions and culture that make Italy a special place in the world. We want you to “understand” Italy, and every day we put our best efforts in providing you with the best Italian experiences.

    Who We Are

    Marcello Cordovani, Founder and Tour Leader Coordinator

    At VITOR we are so in love with Italy. Simple, because we are Italians. And we want to share this love with people from all countries.

    That’s why our goal is to make an Italian out of you.

    With you, we will share our art and culture, our food and wine, our charming accommodations, our beautiful objects, our everyday life, even our language.

    We will not travel as tourists, we will live the country among its people, who will welcome you as an Italian.

    We will live “the Italian way”, savouring our “art of living”, because that’s what makes Italy a unique country in the world.

    Join us for a wonderful experience you’ll never forget, Italy.

    • Really, the trip was fabulous!


      Thank you for your assistance with scheduling an amazing vacation. I wish the weather would have been better, but that was out of your control 😊

      The pick up from the airport was very smooth, as was the transportation to our accommodations in San Quirico.

      Francesca was delightful and did an amazing job with the olive oil, pecorino and the wine tasting. We didn’t realize there was going to be quite so much food. We should not have eaten breakfast. You may want to mention this to travelers if you use this tour again. There was a lot of food!

      Anna did a fantastic job at our cooking class and was unbelievably accommodating to gluten free for Toni. She and Paula, her interpreter were amazing. I wish she would have given us a printout of the recipes, this may be a suggestion. I really want to make the tiramisu we had.

      JonLuca did an amazing job on the bike tour. We thoroughly enjoyed that tour.

      The staff at Il Mirragio were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We even used (rented) the owner’s car one evening to drive to dinner.

      Transport to Amalfi was long but smooth. Our driver was friendly and helpful to stop when needed.

      Alfonzo, our boat captain, was fabulous and accommodating. Our weather was very rainy, but he brought a bigger boat with more cover, so we were able to take the excursion. We had intermittent showers and even a little sunshine, so all was well. We did cut it a little short because of lightening, but that was fine with us.

      Our minivan tour guide, his name escapes me at the moment and I don’t have my journal with me, was very friendly and informative.

      Transport to Capri went well and was organized.

      Transport to Naples was just as easy. As you know there was a little confusion at the Naples terminal, but you quickly rectified that and the driver found us.

      Train ride was easy.

      We loved Julia, our tour guide for the Vatican. She gave just enough information and easily maneuvered us through the crowds. She was well versed and friendly.

      Transport to the airport was easy.

      Really, the trip was fabulous. Thank you so much.

      I believe Toni and Irene had an issue with their driver from Naples to Rome, but maybe they will answer. They said he was on his phone a lot, a distracted driver and smoked. I was not there, so I do not know for sure.


      Thank you!

      Best Regards,

    • We can’t thank Marcello at Vitor enough for this wonderful trip!

      Everything ran smoothly and we were able to truly relax and enjoy our first visit to Italy.

      Our driver Fabio was wonderful! He was extremely professional, competent, and always punctual. Additionally, he was flexible and anticipated our every need. Fabio even suggested some additional stops we might enjoy when we had some extra time. We can’t imagine our trip without him!

      The tour guides were all extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their job. We found Francesca particularly fun and engaging as she guided us on our tour of Montepulciano, a town she was raised in and very enthusiastic about; we learned so much and loved seeing the town through her eyes!

      Marcello did a wonderful job planning our itinerary and was always friendly, helpful and very responsive. Many, many thanks! We look forward to our next trip with Vitor Italy!

      You and your team did a wonderful job!

      Marcello, while we have been to Italy several times, we have never explored Naples, Matera or the Puglia Region which is what we focused on this time.

      From pick up at the airport to our drop off in Rome, our trip was amazing.

      Marcello, you and your team did a wonderful job coordinating all the details.

      The hotel selection was exactly what we expected; the itinerary for each area was mapped out perfectly; your guides in each city were knowledgeable, friendly and enjoyable to be with; and your drivers were friendly, courteous, engaging and always prompt.

      What also impressed us was your personal follow up throughout the trip making sure your team was meeting our expectations.


      When our plans call for another trip to Italy, you can be sure Patty and I will enlist your services

      Thank you again for all your assistance

    • So many incredible things!

      Marcello, we had the most amazing time on our trip to Italy.

      The itinerary was planned out seamlessly for our visits to Rome, Florence, and Venice. The tour guides in each city were extremely knowledgeable and provided us with fun and interesting facts. We got to experience so many incredible things, the coliseum, the Vatican, the David, a private wine tasting, an olive mill tour, and Venice. Marcello and his staff were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to anyone!!

    • We had the most amazing time in Italy!

      Dear Marcello,

      We had a wonderful trip to Italy and cannot wait to visit Italy again.


      I am so glad to have planned my family trip with Vitor Italy. My family of 4, wife and 2 sons, travelled to Italy for 14 days. We had the most amazing time in Italy. Marcello planned a customised trip for us and we had the best private guides. We were able to skip the queues at the attractions and had personalised explanation of the history and significance of the places we visited. We learnt so much during our tours with our personal guides. As we had a personal guide, our tours had some flexibility and we could move at our own pace, compared to those group tours of 20 or more people, which made it so much more enjoyable. The itinerary from Vitor Italy never felt too packed. We had free time to explore the city on our own. 

      Accommodations were simple, yet comfortable. More importantly the hotels were situated near the major attractions, which made it very convenient to move around. We travelled around between cities by train and it was always by first class coach. Marcello would check in on us whenever we moved from one city to the next. We never felt that we were left alone. 

      Having Vitor Italy plan our tour was the best decision I made for our family trip. I could fully enjoy the sights that Italy had to offer. I cannot wait to visit Italy again and most likely with Vitor Italy.

      Thank you for making our visit to Italy a memorable one.

    • We had a wonderful time!

      Ciao Marcello,

      We just got back from Italy yesterday.

      We had a wonderful time, thanks to the meticulous planning of your team.

      The itenary was very good, the hotels were located in central locations and the cities we visited were really beautiful, especially Assisi.

      The drivers were all excellent as were the local guides.

      Thank you very much for the excellent planning and recommendations of the sights and the taste of Italy!

    • Thanks to Marcello, every moment will be fondly remembered!

      Marcello at Vitor Tours was so organized from beginning to end of our 9 day trip to Florence, Chianti, Reggio Emilia, Venice, and Rome. It was just the two of us on our trip and we would recommend him to anyone without hesitation! It can be daunting and a little nerve wracking trying to set up a trip so far from home, but Marcello is very responsive both before and during the trip. He usually gets back to you within a few minutes and all of the guides he set us up with said he is great to work with as well. Marcello thinks of everything for you and all of our guides were top notch and so passionate and knowledgeable. Many of them went above and beyond and spent extra time with us as well! We saw sights we never would have found on our own, wineries up in the hills, family farms making cheese, olive oil and balsamic, glass blowing, architecture, art, and hidden shops and local spots. We had enough food and wine shipped home, it felt like Christmas in Italy! It was the trip of a lifetime and thanks to Marcello, every moment will be fondly remembered!

    • Everything was super well planned and smooth

      Hi Marcello - wanted to drop this note to say what a wonderful trip we had in Italy. Of course the country is absolutely stunning at so many levels but also wanted to appreciate your support for making it even more memorable one by ensuring everything was super well planned and smooth and we hardly had any moments of challenge or inconvenience . Despite what people say - I still think winter is a great season to visit especially for people like us coming from the tropics. A few things I shld call out:
      1. All the hotels chosen were of the quality and service we expect. Thank you for understanding our style and needs.
      2. All the guides and drivers were excellent and made our tour better that extra notch. They were knowledgeable, super engaging , understood our needs (where to pause, where to photo etc) and in case of some last min change they accommodated very well (eg our driver Gino got us out swiftly of a bad accident situation in amalfi where we could have been caught up for long otherwise) . Ultimately it’s the people we meet that creates the final experience of a tour and this proves it. The only exception would be the guide for the city tour of Naples who was not very engaging but we were also pretty tired that day - so maybe it was more us than him.
      3. Appreciate you being available on WhatsApp always and guiding and accommodating small changes during the trip. Felt like we always had a “guide” we can fall back on for anything.

      We definitely look to come back again not too far in the future. Would like to focus more on Florence, Tuscany and other northern areas. Would also like to know if your company also covers multiple countries in same trip - maybe Italy and Swiss or Austria. That would be great. Anyways - will think of that next year. Thnx again for everything! Ciao!

    • It was difficult to pick a favourite as every place offers its unique beauty and charm

      We enjoyed our recent visit to Italy thoroughly.  We were very precise on what we wanted and VITOR had generally met our expectations.  Everything were on schedule, pick-ups were prompt, guides were knowledgeable.  It was difficult to pick a favourite as every place offers its unique beauty and charm.  We particularly love Venice – water taxi and gondolas ride!  Civita was unexpectedly charming.

      We spent a good 2 weeks in Italy but missed out some places.  We will certainly be back and would not hesitate to engage VITOR as our tour partner again!

      Grazie e Ciao

    • Everything Vitor planned for us actually happened!


      Our drivers were on time, our tour guides were amazing and Viti was extremely accommodating! Andrew (golf car tours) and Francesco (the driver to Chianti) were particularly excellent and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We adored the wine tasting and olive oil tasting and just had an overall wonderful time. Marcello, in fact, accommodated a last-minute extra guest to our party due to unforeseen circumstances and we were able to have that extra guest attend all but one activity on our tours even though we only gave Marcello two days notice to add this guest! Our hotel rooms were even great! We had a wonderful last hotel room day because our triple room that was initially planned to be a double, was upgraded to a beautiful suite with a gorgeous view of Rome. It was a nice finish to our trip. So-we are very grateful to the attention that Vitor tours offered and can't suggest them more!

    • Finding Vitoritaly was a complete blessing!

      Dear Marcello,

      I decided on a whim to take myself to Italy and really only had 6 weeks to plan such an adventure. Honestly I wasn't even sure where to start in that process. Finding Vitoritaly was a complete blessing. I can’t thank you enough for coordinating the perfect itinerary for my ‘additional’ 2 weeks in Italy. After I spontaneously booked a separate culinary tour in Tuscany for my first week, you seamlessly picked up where that tour ended. Even booking my transfer from the airport in Florence upon my arrival and the hotel before the culinary tour began. 

      Traveling internationally from the US for the first time, alone was a bit daunting but I soon realized I had someone to rely on if I had questions or needed help. Case in point when I inadvertently got off at the wrong train station heading to Venice. I was able to reach out to your office and a new train ticket was purchased and the water taxi was waiting for me when I finally arrived.

      Every hotel was special in its own way to the city I was in. I felt safe and comfortable and made friends with the hotel staff quickly. 

      Looking back, the 3 hour walk about tour in each city with my own guide allowed me to immerse myself in the history and ask questions before I went off to explore on my own.

      I must admit meeting you, and your wife Edi, for dinner in Sirmione was such a special memory. The conversation flowed so easily and by the end I truly felt like I had friends in Italy!

      I only wish I had remembered to capture a photo of us!

      When I recount all of my adventures in Italy to my friends, I’m always quick to mention that without your perfectly planned itinerary Marcello the outcome would have been completely different. Thank you!! 

      I can't wait to reach out to you when I'm ready to book an my next trip to Italy!!

      Tutto il mio meglio and grazie mille,

    • Thank you Vitor Italy for making our trip hassle free and even more enjoyable!

      We had a wonderful 9 days trip in Italy credit to Vitor Italy. We would like to thank you, Marcello, for all the arrangements. 
      You have been very helpful and responsive to our enquiries and preferences right from the start.
      Transport were smooth and comfortable, local guides were very professional, some of the hotels even exceeded our expectations , although the hotel room in Rome was a bit small. 
      You have also been quick to clarify any miscommunication. We will definitely engage Vitor Italy again on our next visit to Italy.

    • Once in a lifetime!


      We had the most delightful experience from the spa in Ortisei to the huts in the mountains. Our guide helped us to feel safe during our trek and was extremely experienced in all things alpine. We highly recommend this trip. Once in a lifetime. Thank you so much!

    • Truly the trip of a lifetime!


      we had an absolutely fabulous holiday - truly the trip of a lifetime and we couldn’t have done it without VITOR

      Your itinerary was lovely and allowed to see and do everything we wanted to do! The accommodations were wonderful and the transfers were excellent- on time and very nice cars. Your communication was excellent and it was very comforting knowing we had a native Italian helping us if something went wrong. I would recommend VITOR (and I already have) without reservation! 


      Overall it was the absolute trip of a lifetime, we had a FABULOUS time and I would certainly recommend VITOR to friends (and I actually already recommended you to someone).

      Grazie Mille!!!

    • Annalise said it was the best trip of her life!

      We are so happy with our trip! Below are our comments..


      Loved the hotel, staff was very friendly and the breakfast was the best of the trip. Tour guide was exceptional (Lorella). Annalise's favorite spot

      Cinque Terre

      Accommodation was great. It was not a big deal but we weren't expecting to have to walk to our hotel from the parking lot. It was just a little confusing because neither the luggage guy or driver were very good at English and we werent sure where to go. It turned out the town is very small so you really couldn't miss it, but this was very minor.


      Loved the hotel although a bit confusing for both drivers as there is some other place with the same name. Staff was friendly and breakfast was great. Tour guide was great, she took us to some of her favorite shops which was fun. It was good to find out from a local the good shops. Jenn's favorite city!


      Driver was so friendly, he was trying so hard to communicate with us. 😊 He did a great job. Hotel was very nice and breakfast was good. Beautiful view and pool and great location. They have a new patio down at the beach which they share with a neighboring hotel. It was a little confusing at first because you were only allowed to use certain chairs but they had an employee down there making sure the guests were accommodated. Such a beautiful view and we definitely got a lot of exercise! 

      The hotel was very accommodating in trying to get us dinner reservations. Apparently it was quite difficult because of the amount of people. There were also two weddings there in the few days we were there so their restaurant was booked.


      LOVED the hotel and the location, we both wish we could have stayed in Rome longer. There was a farmacy right down the street for our covid tests, very convenient. Vespa tour was so much fun. Our tour guide went above and beyond to show us what we wanted to see and of course it was super fun to ride the Vespa with a side car.  Next time we will stay in Rome longer. Driver was prompt to take us to the airport.

      Overall the trip was incredible! Annalise said it was the best trip of her life!

      I have no complaints, you did an amazing job!  Thank you so much and I really appreciate your help with the train delay.

    • An Awesome Italian Experience!

      Many thanks to the professional team at Vitor Italy, my family had an unforgettable vacation.  All the tour guides are very knowledgable and dedicated, even armed with charts and iPads in their explanations!  The drivers too were very friendly and helpful.  The hotels selected by Marcello were very well located, making it an easy walk to shopping and attractions.  Finally, I appreciate the communication with Marcello on planning and walking through the itinerary so we know what to expect.  It demonstrates the expertise and experience by Vitor Italy in planning these trips.  Thanks Marcello and team!

    • All of your personnel were great

      Mr. Cordovani,

      Thank you for putting together a wonderful tour for us.

      All of your personnel were great. Our driver, Alessandra, was always on time or early, pleasant and professional, and a good driver. He was not very talkative, but that was OK, as we soon had our guides. Stefania was a delight – outgoing, informative, attentive to our moods and preferences, and helpful in all things, big and small. My wife got along especially well with her. Manuela was also an excellent guide in Verona, with not only the usual tour information, but also lots of local knowledge, and she was well versed in her Shakespeare knowledge.


      The hotels were all very good. Before the tour, when I received the booking confirmations, I looked each one up on the internet and was not very impressed. But, when we arrived at each one, I quickly changed my opinion. I found them all to be lovely – well located, clean, comfortable, and well run. (I decided that the hotels need to hire better photographers and website managers, as their websites do not do them justice.)

      We liked Lake Maggiore a lot. The Borromeo islands were wonderful.

      Lake Como is very beautiful, but we actually liked Maggiore better, as there was more to see and do. Usually, we would go out for dinner in the evening, rather than eat at the hotel. But, that was more complicated at Como because there was nothing within walking distance. However, we were a little tired at that point, so we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant. We had the most wonderful romantic dinner on the outside terrace, overlooking the lake. It was a bit expensive, but well worth it.

      We enjoyed the Brunelli winery tour, and I bought some wine to be shipped home. I would have enjoyed the winery tour more if it had been in the afternoon, rather than at 11 AM, but I understand that the timing of the travel to Verona dictated that. My only “complaint” is that the winery was so modern it could have been one of the wineries here in California, rather than a centuries old operation. But, we liked the wines, and the owner’s niece Vittoria was a good guide, even taking us into the cellar to show us wine bottled and hand labelled by her grandmother.

      We also enjoyed Verona a lot. It is a charming city, and very walkable. We are both big fans of Shakespeare, so it was special for us, even though the Julia balcony seems tacky and not authentic. We enjoyed the dinner that you arranged for us at the local restaurant. It was a bit hard to find, due to the small twisting streets that change name every block, but it was well worth the effort. I think we were the only non-locals there.

      On our extra day in Verona, we got to see Carmen at L’Arena! That was a treat. The production used the large stage to good effect, with about 100 people on stage in the village scenes. Three men on horseback rode around the stage in one scene. Quite a spectacle. We only saw the first act. The start was delayed to about 9:30 due to rain, and by the intermission it was after 11 PM (late for us) and we were wet, so we left. But, we found a cool wine bar a block away, to wrap up a fun evening.

      We are very happy that we booked our tour with you and your company. It made that part of our trip to Italy easy and fun. Thank you for everything.
