    As far as I am concerned, there is no other way to visit Italy and have such wonderful experiences.  Marco and Denise are the very BEST.

  • Neil Selman and Cindy Chapman
    People opened their homes, their wineries, their restaurants, and their hearts to us, and we were able to meet people and do things we never could have dreamed of doing on our own. […] We look forward to returning to Italy and would not think about doing so without Niche Italy being our travel partner.

    Sicily tour 2016
  • Loretta and Rick Stanish
    We had an experience of a lifetime on our trip to Sicily. We could have never planned a trip like this on our own. Every time we tell someone about our trip, WE are more amazed by how much we saw and learned so efficiently in 8 days. Marco and his team really take care of everything - including entertaining you with the occasional seranade!

    Sicily tour 2016
  • Lee and Barbara Reichbaum, Bob and Carol Hoyland
    Above all else you, your staff and the warm people of Italy made our time the best holiday of my life. […] Everyday, we asked each other, “OK, what is your favorite thing that we’ve done so far?” Very soon we realized that were no answers to be found. Every historical site came to life through Niche Italy guides, every meal was a gourmet tasting with the owner or waiter telling about the origin of the dish, its farm/sea-to-table freshness, and preparation. So many bites were “OMG, have you tasted anything like this before!” […] There are really not enough words to share what all this has meant to Barbara, Bob, Carol and me. […] Marco, you have found your Niche and created a grand niche for us as well.

  • Gregory Zaretsky
    NicheItaly – Three Stars! Michelin describes its three-star restaurants as a destination to itself. A place worth travelling to. […] But let me just tell you this. The more I travel around the world, the more I realize that for those like me who like good food, nice glass of wine and a little culture there is no other place like Italy. And for those who love Italy as much as I do, there is no alternative but NicheItaly.
