Why choose kimkim?
Connect directly to a local specialist in Italy. We’re passionate about customizing a trip with authentic flavor and unique experiences that speak to your personality. Planning with us means working with an experienced, creative, and highly-vetted local specialist who lives and works in Italy and will collaborate one-on-one with you to create the ideal vacation.
Your trip will be personalized to your specific tastes. Whether you’re interested in culture, hiking, wine tasting, or road tripping, our specialists will put together the trip that is right for you.
This commitment to experiences and attention starts with our quick and fun onboarding process and continues through the length of your stay in Italy.
Secure & Easy Booking
Once you are 100% happy with your trip plan, you'll be able to easily book your entire trip through kimkim's secure payment platform.
Customizing Your Perfect Trip
Once we have a sense of who you are and what you’re looking for, you’ll be matched with the right specialist. That might be based on the region of Italy you’re looking to visit or activities you’re interested in. Because of their expertise and experience, they’ll also steer you toward the right location and time of year for your ideal adventure.
Your customized experience will also incorporate personalized approaches to accommodation, local guides, and even transportation. Our Italian specialists like to keep excursions meaningful with private tours or intimate group settings. Rather than being dropped off with 100 other people in Rome, imagine having a guide point out architectural marvels and history an equally impressive but lesser-known setting away from the crowds.
We only want you to interact with the best of the best at every point on your vacation. That’s why every professional you’ll work with on your trip—from hotel proprietors to drivers—are continuously evaluated by our specialists.
Local Specialists, Insider Knowledge
Our experts give suggestions based on traveler reviews and their own personal experience—not on who gives the highest commission. Their tips and insight not only add immense value to our process but set us and our style apart from our competitors.
These are experts who have spent years putting together tours and know the value that creativity and insight bring to your vacation. They are also proud ambassadors of Italy, and they want to show you the best the country has to offer.
Access to Hidden Gems
Our focus is on creating meaningful experiences that immerse you in Italian culture. You’ll be led to Italy's hidden gems: take a local-led city tour of Siena, spend the night in a Sardinian shepherd's hut, or ride a Vespa through the Tuscan countryside.
Unique Ways to Experience Italy's Highlights
Not everyone wants to get completely off the grid—but even if you want to hit Italy's most popular sites and cities, kimkim ensures a customized experience. At the popular highlights, you'll still experience Italy like a local, learning about traditions, customs, and culture in an intimate setting, rather than in a big group, or trying to navigate on your own with a guidebook.
In-Destination Support and Suggestions
Kimkim’s travel experts are also there for you after you’ve decided on the details of your trip. Not only will your specialist provide with additional tips so you can make the most out of your vacation, but we are available to help once you land in Italy. That means anything from suggesting a perfect restaurant to facilitating last minute changes to your itinerary (whenever possible) or assisting you if you hit a snag in your travel plans.
Kimkim trips are 100% climate neutral. Plan your trip with us and support sustainable initiatives around the world, reducing your impact and strengthening communities along the way. Learn more
