At Unlock Italy, we want to help make your trip to Italy a special experience with easy communication by phone or email prior to your trip and personal, customized tours designed exclusively for you.

Luca is a native Italian, born and raised in Tuscany and Lauren left California to pursue her dream of living in Italy in 2010. Both official, licensed guides of Italy with over fifteen years in the tourism industry between us, we hope to offer our guests a personalized experience that starts with the planning process and extends to unique tours that draw on Luca’s “insider” Italian perspective and Lauren’s background as an American living in Italy.

Here are some of the types of tour experiences we provide:

  • Skip the lines and go in depth at the main sights on your wishlist
  • Mix and match food, wine, artistic masterpieces and hidden corners on a customized tour designed exclusively for you
  • Along with tours we offer advice on the best neighborhoods to stay in, where the locals eat, the most satisfying day trips and hidden gems to visit on your own.

Contact us at info@unlockitaly.com to get started or check out our best sellers here for inspiration and we will customize each tour from there. If you want to hear what others thought of our tours, read on below for what they’re saying about us and Unlock Italy on Trip Advisor and our Facebook Page.

We hope to meet you soon in Italy!

Some of our Reviews

The Best Tour I’ve ever been on

“I can’t imagine a better way to experience and appreciate the story of Rome than on one of Lauren’s tours. My family and I were on our first trip to Rome and needed some help navigating all the amazing sites and its remarkable history. Lauren was the perfect choice.” -Jon W

Amazing and Always a Pleasure 

“Luca is upbeat and will wake you up and keep you engaged during the entire tour. From Italian intricacies and nuances about driving in Italy, to the daily life of Italians, to how to negotiate purchases and where and how to do lunch, Luca is simply amazing. There is no other tour guide who comes close.” – mirassou

Incredible!

“My wife and I went on a tour of Florence with Luca. He was the most incredible tour guide ever. He made our best vacation ever even more unforgettable. We still talk about his stories and anecdotes over dinner and to other guests even though it was in 2013 when we went.” – Robert C

Amazing Tour

“I had an incredible time touring Rome with Lauren. She was knowledgeable about the ancient city, helped me take some amazing photos, and was a wonderful conversationist. I enjoyed my tour and deeply appreciate the memories!” – Denise R
