Travel document and insurance essentials


Americans do not need a visa to visit Italy for less than 90 days. Your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond the intended period of stay in Italy.

American visitors staying for less than three months will receive a stamp on their passports, serving as a “dichiarazione di presenza,” or declaration of presence -- an official registration of the intended stay in Italy.

It is the sole responsibility of the tour participant to have a valid passport.

We strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance (including trip delay, trip cancellation, trip interruption, and baggage insurance). Health, accident, and emergency evacuation insurance are also strongly recommended.


Cancellation Policy and refunds


If you need to cancel your Lusso e Gusto tour, please be aware that all deposits are non-refundable.

Final payments will be processed in the following manner:

  • 61 to 90 days before the scheduled tour start date: 80% refund.
  • 31 to 60 days before the scheduled tour start date: 60% refund.
  • 30 days or fewer prior to the scheduled tour start date: no refund.

Changing your Tour date will result in a cancellation and potentially cancellation fees.

In the event of a cancellation, Lusso & Gusto is not responsible for expenses not included in your luxury Italian food and wine tour. There will be no refund for starting your tour late or leaving early. We reserve the right to modify the itinerary according to availability at time of booking. In the event of a change, a supplier of equal or greater value and quality will be selected.
