Why join me in a small group tour of Italy?

Hi, I'm Michela, the owner of Rocky Travel, a travel website for solo travellers to Italy and Australia. I started solo adventures in my 20s in Italy, my home country and since then I've been travelling for over 35 years. I love the food, the culture and the fact that no matter where you are in Italy, there is always a charming place around the corner to explore. 

I'm thrilled to show you Italy, my home country, with the knowledge of an insider! I also like to empower solo female travellers to enjoy life after 50 and travel more solo or in a small group!

Take a look at my offerings and how I can help you create and plan your personalised and fully guided Italy, Sicily Trip and Dolomites Trip.

My Small Groups have a prevalence of outdoor activities with a touch of Italian culture and food experience. And because we travel in small groups, we can make encounters and meet the locals too!

Clients' Testimonials - Sicily Trip

I’d recommend Rocky Travel to anyone who likes active travel with small groups and is interested in getting to know Sicily and all its cultural, historic and natural aspects. Michela, and our Sicily expert guides and our wonderful driver, were incredibly helpful and informative throughout the trip planning and on tour.

Michela, the trip organizer, also Italian, was extremely helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was a fabulous introduction to Sicily, and I highly recommend it, especially if you are not familiar with Sicily. Very reasonably priced and good value for money. For sure I’ll be back.

What Clients Say Of Our Trips

My trip to the Dolomites with a group of women who had never met before was great!  We all got along and enjoyed the company.  The places we visited were amazing.  The mountain scenery was incredible.  Wild flowers, cows with their big bells.  We happened to be at a beautiful hotel in the mountains for the proprietress' birthday party and were invited.  There was the celebration of the Sacred Heart with big bonfires all along the mountain tops.  Every place we stayed was wonderful.  If it was be chance or great planning, the trip was wonderful and created a million memories.

RHONDA Manfredo | FReSno, USA

Michela is professional, experienced, and very patient with my group of 7. She goes out of her way to help us, even helping me find a good pair of hiking shoes when mine gave way. She also advised us on our onward trip to other parts of Italy. I recommend using Rocky Travel if you want to explore the Dolomites as Michela is so experienced  in this area and you will have a great time with her enjoying the awesome Dolomites.


If possible, do a small tour group like the Rocky Travel Tours of Sicily. That way, you have better customer service, and the little bus provides greater mobility, while the unavoidable toilet stops are not as long. The Rocky Travel Tour of Sicily suited me, so I was with like-minded people! The Best of Sicily Tour had a right balance of organised activities and free time.

JameS Burke | Perth, WEST AUSTRALIA

Dolomites were breathtakingly beautiful with the rocky peaks and lush rolling mountains. Travelling with a small group of open minded women who were willing to take on the mountains, changing weather, train and bus schedules.   Hiking was a little challenging but made the drinks even more tastier after hiking.  Local people were friendly and lovely to see people wearing there regions costumes. Well planned trip, relaxing, challenging with a few laughs along the way.  Hope to make it back some day. Overall a great trip to South Tyrol.
