luxury and vip travel, convention planning, honeymoons





(C) Luxury and VIP travel agency. Vacations, conferences, conventions and honeymoons in Italy.





Italicus is a company established in 2000 to provide sophisticate travelers access to a beautiful and secret Italy that very few are fortunate enough to know. In three years we have acquired an excellent reputation in the travel industry, as witnessed by articles written in several magazines, both in Italy and in the United States, that celebrate our ultimate individual travel. We also organize the most exclusive conferences and conventions in Italy, where we offer our clients a vast array of unique possibilities, flawless service, and a hassle-free experience. We specialize in Italy, our native country, because we are the most familiar not only with its territory and logistics, but also with the way Italians think and work.

What sets us apart from the competition is the fact that we are a young company, established by group of detail-oriented and hard-working professionals who love what they do. Moreover, we have a network of aristocratic friends who welcome our clients to their medieval castles and Renaissance palaces, both for conventions and special events. These princes, dukes and marquises, who are descended from kings, popes and saints, regale you with fascinating stories about their illustrious ancestors which took place in these historic settings. Thus, your business trip becomes an invaluable opportunity to discover a secret and breathtaking Italy inaccessible to ordinary visitors.

We are aware of the factors that make a convention successful: efficiency, the best technical equipment, impeccable assistance from all the people involved, comfortable accommodation, exquisite food and unique events during leisure time. However, we believe there is another essential element that is too often overlooked in our industry: the capability to give one’s best without any “huffing and puffing”. Clients should never be surrounded by “stressed-out”, loud or less-than-gracious organizers, because a calm and smiling staff is what allows clients to fully enjoy their experience.

Enclosed please find one of the many programs we organize, to give you an idea of what we do. Clients’ suggestions and requests are always taken into account.
