Private, customized tours of Italy for sophisticated & returning travelers



Imagine the Mediterranean sun warming your face as you sip the last bit of steamed foam off your caffe macchiato. You know this city well, or at least you feel as if you do after today. The waiter comes over & your companion responds in perfect Italian that we'll take the conto, while you smile at being treated like a local. With her guidance, you've been following the footsteps of Romantic poets, contemplating changing architecture, visiting studios of local artists, skipping lines & avoiding red tape. Smiling as you follow her down an empty cobblestone street, you wonder how it's possible to feel so at ease in a foreign city. This is Clam Tours & we are NOT tour guides! We are Renaissance women & men who want to inspire you to think about a new alternative - not only as a traveler, but as a way of life - and to help you live your every Italian reverie authentically.
