Italy on a Budget tours is a travel company based in Florence and specialized in the youth travel 18-39's market.
We have been operating since 2007 when the owner Irene Chimenti after a 2 year experience of guiding around Europe, where she discovered her passion of sharing her knowledge about the different destinations with travellers coming from various nationalities, decided to move back to her homeland Tuscany.
This is when she launched her registered trademark “Tuscany on a Budget tours” with the philosophy to offer budget trips, events and activities for a lifetime experience to young independent travellers willing to learn, taste and see what the territory has to offer in a fun environment together with a young, lively and knowledgeable team.Since then we have been running city tours in Florence and day trips to Tuscany.
In 2013 we have launched our new trademark “ Italy on a Budget tours” with the idea to develop activities for 18-39's across to new popular destinations in Italy. Italy on a Budget tours is different from all the other local tour operators because we put all ourselves in the tours.
Our philosophy is “ Experience Italy from a local point of view” with interesting stories, fun facts and lots of laugh. Our passengers are all independent travellers coming mainly from Australia, Canada, America, New Zeland and UK and during the tours they get to share their travel stories with the people of the same age having the same experience.Our team is composed of locals guides and we all speak fluent English. We all love sharing the passion for our land, all the secrets, the traditions and the culture of Italy with our fellow travellers.
So, if the grip on your wallet is as tight as most Italian men's trousers, you no longer need to miss out this beautiful region. Italy on a Budget are the local superheroes and in the words of Super Mario, your friendly Italian plumber, “Life is a game, kid! It all depends on how you play”.
