Italy Beyond the Obvious has been creating dream vacations for curious travelers since 2008.
Founder Madeline Jhawar spent five years in Italy, including a job guiding week-long hiking and biking tours for Butterfield & Robinson.
The Italy Beyond the Obvious team now includes two locally-based trip planners and a project manager in addition to Madeline, which means we offer 24/7 support on the road. All trips are crafted based on travelers’ interests, budget, and travel pace. Our itineraries are so customized that we have never created the same trip twice. We encourage you to read our customer reviews online.
