On your next visit to the stunning European country of Italy, really get under the skin of the place by taking a private tour. For luxury travelers, an exclusive private tour is the best way to really get to know a place, no more anonymous, packed coach trips but a unique view of a place in real comfort; which is exactly where Miles&Miles Private Tours comes in.
Style & Character
One of the lovely things about Miles&Miles Private Tours is that they are a family-run tour company. The founder, Roberto Miglio, was born and raised in Rome and is understandably passionate about his home city. With the help of his English wife and their extended family, he now works hard to share his knowledge and experience of Italy with his tour guests and deliver a true VIP service. You get to see the classic, popular sites of course, but the beauty of a knowledgeable local is that they also take you to the less-known places that only the locals know about.
This is very much an experience for luxury travelers; get picked up and dropped back at your hotel, relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned Mercedes, and be treated like royalty throughout by your exceptional guides.
Miles&Miles Private Tours run tours all over Italy, visiting top cities including Florence, Venice, Naples, areas such as the Amalfi Coast, and they even venue out of Italy to the Spanish city of Barcelona. Read on for our top 3 favorite tours in Rome to give you a taster of how the tours operate…
