Our Journeys


It all began in Italy for Customized Journeys. Born in Genoa, our Italian co-founder Alessandra specializes in creating fantastic excursions that offer an inside look into an Italian culture that few foreigners ever get to experience.

On a Customized Journey through Italy, you’ll do much more than admire paintings on a museum wall. With us, you’ll become an active participant in your own adventure. Taste the flavors and meet the people of this breathtakingly beautiful and vibrant country. Join us for Carnival in Venice and wear elaborate, fantastical masks in the Lent celebration. Attend Palio di Siena and cheer on jockeys as they circle Piazza del Campo in an exhilarating bareback horse race. Visit local, sustainable cheese factories and learn how they make the region’s best Parmesan. Sample various grades of extra virgin olive oil and discover the difference in taste and flavor. Allow us to show you the authentic Italy that we know and love. You won’t regret it!

Space is always limited to 15-20 travelers, so check out our newest offerings and book a few spaces today, or contact us to design a special trip or event just for your group!

Dear Friends & Travelers,

The safety and well-being of our clients is our top priority.

We continue to closely monitor the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic and relying on recommendations from the US State Department, CDC, World Health Organization, and other relevant authorities at home and abroad.

For trips that are postponed due by Customized Journeys due to safety concerns or country closures due to Covid-19, we continue to offer these options to clients for trips with departures in 2022:

1. Join your group’s alternate date
If your trip is postponed, you will have the option of joining the future alternate date and will gladly transfer your reservation to this date.

2. Reschedule your trip on a different Customized Journeys departure
If the alternate date for your program does not work for you, we are happy to work with you to find a different date, private trip, or future program that will suit your needs and interests.

3. Receive a Future Travel Credit (FTC)
If your preference is to wait to travel, we will put your reservation on hold and apply your funds toward a future Customized Journeys travel program of your choosing. This FTC is valid for 2 years from your original departure date.

As the situation continues to evolve, we have learned that what makes sense today may be different tomorrow.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional information to help with your decision process.

Thank you for your commitment and understanding.

The Customized Journeys team
