We want our guests to fall in love with Italy, just as we did over twenty years ago
Our aim is to create an exceptional trip for any size group to any region of this fascinating country.
Since starting the company from in September 2000 we have grown considerably and now enjoy sharing our experience and understanding of the culture by finding just the right location, activity, trip or event for several thousand guests every year.
Sharing our passion for Italy involves the whole family, and we all enjoy being able to interact with our guests, getting to know them, discovering what they want and together ensuring that they get to live the Italian dream.
How travel should be
Travel should be fun, interesting, motivational, educational, stress-free and, most importantly, make you feel happy!
We know people have hectic lives and finding the perfect accommodation, venue, restaurants or activities abroad is tricky and time-consuming – be it for a successful corporate event, a memorable break with family or friends or a stunning wedding.
We travel continuously ourselves, always picking up good tips and testing everything we recommend. After 20 years in Italy we know that personal contact is the key to securing the best of anything required, so always being on the spot we are able to arrange anything for all discerning travellers.
Our local commitment
Supporting our local small businesses, who preserve age old traditions and know where to find the best produce in the area, is an important element in our vision for sharing Italy with others. Lucca, and Italy, would not be the same without them.
Meet the team
We could not do this alone and fortunately work with several wonderful people in the local communities of our top destinations, without whom our trips and activities would not be the same. We know that they can share experiences, local knowledge, food, wine and stories which have been passed down from generation to generation.
Kristin & Kåre
Founders Trip2 and 2Italia
Kare has a background in business and finance and has his feet planted firmly on the ground and Kristin worked in quality assurance and loves being creative, so we believe we make a good team and complement each other well. Challenges and new ventures make life interesting – and we certainly never have a dull moment!
Our Chef in Lucca
Of Polish origin, our wonderful chef has grown up in Tuscany and after training at one of the best Italian cooking schools has subsequently worked with first class chefs from Canada, the United States, Australia and, of course, Italy. Tuscany is her culinary Mecca and she loves to share her passion for cooking in harmony with each season’s local produce. She now runs her own cookery courses in a beautiful location in the scenic hills outside Lucca.
