Escorted Small Group Travel to Italy and France for the Independent Traveler. 
***Italy With Friends tours are physically active!  This is an essential part of my small group tours.  It is the only way to really experience the true Italian or French culture and surroundings. 

Please read my Note on Physical Activity before you consider joining one of my tours.  Thanks, Suzan
"I had looked at a hundred tours online for the trip I was planning to Italy in 2009.  I was very hesitant about traveling with a group as I have been to Italy several times either solo or with one other person.  I am very glad I found Italy With Friends.  Suzan's love and knowledge of Italy reflected in the details of this trip.  From the welcome bag with absolute essentials that I always forget at home to the various bottles of wine that waited for you in your room upon check-in.  The personal touches were great.  Every little town and village had a story and Suzan was able to spin the tale.  I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and if she would travel to other parts of Italy, I would love to take another trip with her as a guide."

WELCOME TO 
"Italy with Friends Tours"
YES, I AM BACK!


Hello again after almost 3 years.  I do not need to tell any of you how the global pandemic changed traveling to Italy and France these past few years.  I will tell you, however that it changed my dear Italy With Friends Tours immensely.  In fact, I am not completely sure to what extent I will be able to offer tours to Italy and France again.  When or if I do, so many things will be different.  I am sure you do not find that surprising at all.  I am several years older and there have been many changes in my life as well.

I am currently looking into potential tours for 2023 and 2024, but will need to do a lot more "research" again before I can offer the same type of tours that I was so excited to offer in the past.  Italy has suffered greatly in these past years and many of the small, quaint places that I loved to share with you are no longer open for business.  Thankfully tourism is back in full swing these days and hopefully those amazing and hardworking Italians will be back in full swing as well.  

I encourage you to travel if you are able and to not put off making those "memories of a lifetime".  I wish they could be with Italy With Friends Tours, but I do not know exactly when that can happen.  I do have quite a bit of interest in visiting Italy and France, so I definitely will get busy and see what I can come up with for the future.  I do have a couple of groups that I am working up some private tours for in 2023, so those may be the lucky few who do get to travel first again on an IWF's Tour.  I will email everyone once I do have tours available, I promise.  

Thank you for your continued good wishes and support.  As I said, do not miss out on seeing Italy or France if now is your time to travel, even if it means I miss out on seeing you on an IWF's tour.  Sharing Italy with new travelers was pure joy for me and I miss it very much.  I do look forward to the day when I may be able to do that again.  I wish you all the very best and hope that your travels will be wonderful.  Hopefully, I will see you again on an IWF's tour in the future.

Ciao bella,

Suzan
