Italian Educational and Cultural Experiences
Vita Italian Tours is all about personalised service. We are a family
business and are committed to providing a comprehensive and
rewarding experience for students.


Mario and Viny have been successfully operating Vita Italian Tour since 2002.
Viny has over twenty years experience as a primary school teacher and teacher of Italian. Mario has taught Italian at tertiary level and runs his own private Italian classes on language, culture and travel.

Gianni has worked in the Vita Italian Tours Schools Program since 2006 and has successfully organised and led school tours. His passion of Italian History and culture makes him a favourite and popular leader with students and teachers.

As your personal guides we are bilingual, have lived and studied in Italy and have extensive knowledge of the history, culture and the Italian way of life. We draw from our many years of teaching as well as over ten years of experience as tour guides for both adult and school groups to give you a comprehensive and enjoyable trip.    

The signature feature of our school tours program is that we fully guide your group throughout the tour. This hands-on approach means we look after all facets of the itinerary, making the experience come alive, whilst eliminating the pressures of teachers on tour.

We understand there are schools that wish to travel independently. In these cases, we, in conjunction with the teachers, devise detailed comprehensive itineraries to suit individual tour requirements for independent travel.

We tailor all school tours to meet specialised learning areas such as language, history, art, culture, hospitality or a combination of these themes.
