Italy tours

Cathy's verdict
You could spend a lifetime exploring Italy, from glorious lakes to sun-drenched islands, the Amalfi Coast and the wonderful cities. And these specialist holidays for solo travellers make that idea even more tempting, with itineraries to suit the sociable and those looking for time alone, classic sights and active escapes.

Just You says

We specialise in holidays for solo travellers only – insightful, fun and award-winning tours across the globe. Solo occupancy of a double or twin room is standard.

  • solos only
  • wide choice of itineraries
  • your own room
  • lots included in the price

Each tour is led by one of our own knowledgeable and friendly tour managers to ensure a warm welcome from the moment you arrive. Itineraries are crafted to ensure there is plenty to see and do combined with the flexibility to allow everyone in the group to be as sociable as they want, or enjoy some ‘me time’.

One of our most popular destinations is Italy, where we have created some wonderful trips from five up to eight days, spanning the mainland from top to toe – literally – as well as the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. From Christmas in Amalfi to autumn in the Italian Riviera, you will find a tour to suit your interests and budget.

Choose from classic tours that focus on the iconic sights, leisurely touring with more free time built in and active touring such as walking holidays. All breakfasts and many other meals are included and our hotels are close to the heart of places so you can explore local restaurants and bars.

Our one week tour of Lake Como is based in the lakeside town of Lecce with many meals and most excursions included in the price. Lake Maggiore, a boat ride on Lake Como, the Borromean Islands and Villa Melzi Gardens await – and you can take the Bernina Express train to St Moritz too.

Our walking tour of the Amalfi Coast includes four days of guided walking (between four and eight kms) in such incredible places as Ravello and Punta Campanella and free time on the other days with options to visit Capri, Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius.

Florence, Pisa and Siena are all included in our Highlights of Tuscany tour. Based in a four star hotel in Montecatini Terme, this leisurely tour includes some free days too – you can even enjoy the Opera in Montecatini.

Other options include Discover Sicily and the more leisurely Sun-Kissed Sardinia and, back on the mainland, the Baroque towns and unique Trulli of Puglia.

Our tours attract all ages with a mix of first-timers and regular Just You travellers aged between 18 and 80. Not all are single – many have partners at home with different interests.

All our prices represent outstanding value for money and it’s always worth checking our last minute deals.
