Rome & Florence 2023
Rome and Florence are walking cities so we walk, discovering vistas, piazzas and iconic locations. See with your eyes, then shoot with your camera - enjoying the Italy experience, then capturing those moments with photography. We love sharing and shooting locations you know and some hidden places we know that you will love!!
Florence & Tuscany 2023
Tuscany is the artistic palatte of Italy and a completely different experience than other Italian destinations. Your adventure begins with two days in the birthplace of the Renaissance. then ventures on to the hidden hillside towns and walled cities that have made this region of Italy famous. Come once and you'll be back again. And again!
Imagine discovering Italy with an enthusiastic group of people who - just like you - love to travel and take pictures. Here is your invitation to join our small group of no more than 14 people, taking in the sights and secrets of Italy with a professional photographer alongside who will help you capture your best vacation pictures ever.
Picture Perfect Italy is an Authentic Italian experience focused on photography. Bob Ray, our photo pro, will inspire you and share how to see the light to take fabulous pictures with your DSLR or point-and-shoot camera, even with your smart phone! And all of us will explore and shoot Rome, Florence or Tuscany together. Bob’s instruction may qualify your time with us as education and could be a tax write-off. Your accountant will know if that works for you.
We’ll walk on cobblestones together, take in the must see sights along with our Secret Italy locations. And you will have free time to explore on your own.
Accommodations are in authentic Italian hotels. We include two meals each day, breakfast plus lunch or dinner wIth Italian wine!
We walk, talk, shoot and learn together with flexibility, patience and a sense of humor. No flag-waving tour guides, gas-guzzling tour busses or must-keep-moving mantras here. We believe camaraderie enhances everyone’s experience. Italy is a walking paradise with lots of stairs and cobblestones which do require reasonable good shape and health.
To meet your hosts, Jill Denton & Bob Ray, click here. Jill and I created Picture Perfect Italy from our love of Italy and passion for taking great vacation pictures no matter what you take pictures with.
Our groups are small - maximum to 14 adults - so we’re a bit more expensive than more crowded and chaotic offerings. Italy is a savoured experience and that’s Picture Perfect for our groups.
