Hospes Non Hospi – A Guest Not A Stranger

Tours & Study Days At
Ciceroni Travel

Our company name, CICERONI, is the Italian word for a group of eighteenth century ‘Grand Tour’ guides. We create and conduct our tours in the relaxed and informative manner of the Grand Tour with a particular accent on private visits. We use comfortable hotels in enviable country and city locations while good food and wine are an important part of our sense of hospitality. Our study days focus on individual themes, collections and exhibitions, offering an independent overview of each subject, many of which complement our tour programme.

We shall explore much of this, which remains in the Royal Collection, to be displayed in a landmark exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery.
