Original Quote

“La collaborazione con IVW è il modo di lavorare che più ci piace.”


Locals are the best travel guides, so we work with them to determine how to respectfully share authentic cultural experiences.

Our relationship with Locals also allows us to introduce Guests in an environment of mutual trust and respect from the get go, leading to better experiences for everyone.


Our Guests
say it best

Guests are the reason we built IVW; we love to see eyes light up and smiles widen as the rural Italian way of life sets in.

Exceptional hosts that go above & beyond to provide a culturally authentic Italian experience.
