We are the only Italian travel company in the world that has local resident-designers of custom adventures that encourage exchanges with locals and appreciation of the territory.

We maintain the delicate balance between guaranteeing residents’ quality of life and visitors’ quality experiences because the residents themselves are planning the way you see “THEIR” Italy.

Our out-of-the-ordinary itineraries are for travelers who want to see a different Italy – an Italy most people haven’t met yet!

Our Alternative Cultural Adventures...

allow travelers to meet the people, eat the food, touch the history, and hear the stories of local residents, who are the precious gatekeepers of tradition and artisan secrets.

Local business owners are DG Members proudly creating the people-to-people experiences that will make you want to go back and send family and friends.

Local input makes the DG Difference – residents promoting and protecting the place where they have grown up.

Be a LOCALS-FIRST traveler.

Our networked, collaborative approach fosters respect for the people who live and work in the areas you will visit.

The STOP Overtourism Movement

We invite travelers and travel professionals to join us in our STOP Overtourism Movement.

We will provide spectacular photos, visitor reviews, extensive destination profiles/background history and carefully planned itineraries that will help promote our less crowded, lesser-known, truly out-of-the-ordinary Alternative Cultural Adventures. We will help encourage experienced Italian travelers to #RethinkItalianTravel – to leave their comfort zone at home and celebrate life!®

#RethinkingItaly Events

Chicago • New York • San Francisco • Los Angeles

Divertimento Group wants you to help us make a lot of “chiasso” – noise! The more travelers and travel professional partners we have at our special events to raise awareness about our STOP Overtourism Movement – the greater the chance the media will give more attention to lesser-known, less-crowded locations.
