Where it all began
Long Travel was founded in 1988 by a couple of former schoolteachers, who wanted to explore the most beautiful, off-the-beaten-track locations in Italy, but struggled to find places to stay that they really loved. So, they decided to take matters in their own hands, searching for stunning accommodation to provide a unique holiday experiences. Thirty years on we are proud to continue this ethos and offer amazing property that focus on the high-quality, bespoke holidays Long Travel customers have come to expect.
