Avventure Bellissime Company History

Founded in 1998, owners Monica & Jonathan started Avventure Bellissime operating small group day tours of the Veneto from Venice.

During those early days, when they enjoyed a very close rapport with their clients, they learned what their guests wanted from their vacations in Italy and through their own desires and intuition they established the direction in which to develop their company.

In 2002, Avventure Bellissime became the first Walking Tour company in Venice. Incredible, but true, in a tourist mecca like Venice, Avventure Bellissime was the first tour company to offer guided boat tours of the Grand Canal and a comprehensive selection of walking tours throughout the city.

A niche in the market that Monica & Jonathan further developed by offering quality tours at the most economical prices. In Venice, and continuing throughout Italy, Monica & Jonathan have built up an impressive group of collaborators; local expert guides, local expert driver / guides with fully licensed vehicles and other service providers who like themselves passionately believe in providing visitors to Italy a unique insider's view of the city or region that they call home.

In 2004, Avventure Bellissime expanded their Italian network offering small group regular scheduled tours in Rome & Florence, and private tours throughout Italy from Milan to Naples. As the company's business continued to expand at a phenomenal rate, Monica & Jonathan decided to invest in technology to manage the increased demand for their services and to create the infrastructure through which they could continue grow while still remaining true to their core beliefs.

Gaining the respect of the travel industry and travelling public, Avventure Bellissime has continued to grow through the support of its faithful clientele, the numerous household name company's throughout the world that sell their tours and from the very important input and support given to them by their numerous collaborators throughout Italy who all feel as if they are part of this beautiful adventure. In 2007, over 60,000 individual travelers took an Avennture Bellissime tour.

And now, in 2009, Avventure Bellissime have continued to develop their services to offer vacation packages of Italy. Combining their vast selection of tours, transfers and other services throughout Italy with prestigious hotels to create "Quality Vacation Packages at Affordable Prices". Now their clients can enjoy the Avventure Bellissime experience throughout their stay in Italy.

And finally with the launch of their new website in 2009, they have managed to realize the image that reflects the type of professional service they offer prospective clients planning to visit Italy.
