Historic Villas and Gardens Italy boasts a vast number of outstanding privately-owned historic houses, castles and gardens, many UNESCO listed and all of which are wonderful examples of Italy’s heritage. Gardens which encapsulate the particular genius of the Italian style and its enormous influence are at the heart of our lovingly-crafted tours to the must-see attractions, as well as to the more secluded gems. Enable your clients to explore the Veneto’s Renaissance villas shaped by Palladio’s genius, or the magnificent Tuscan country villas of the Medici, testimony to their wealth and power. In the South, visit the imposing Baroque palazzi of Naples and its surroundings, or the Baroque glories of Sicily. Wherever your clients choose, Alba opens up these magnificent dwellings and brings them to life. We offer informal receptions or gala dinners with their owners, who will proudly show your clients their noble apartments enriched with period furniture, tapestries and precious objects, all unmistakable signs of their true identity, and their sumptuous gardens graced with sculptures and fountains.
