Operator will custom design itineraries

DENVER -- Although Pisoni-Ferrari Tour Co. president Alvaro Pisoni targets such ready-made groups as affinity clubs and incentive groups, the company also designs upscale programs for as few as two people.

Relevant special interests include architecture, honeymoons, cuisine, shopping, music, photography, hiking, wine tasting, horseback riding and skiing.

The pace of the programs can be adjusted to seniors, fitness buffs or family groups, and business travelers can hook up with their counterparts in Italy through prearranged meetings.

Prices vary according to the length and nature of the program.

Small private groups of six or seven people might expect to pay from $4,000 per person, double, for two weeks' worth of land arrangements, not including lunches and dinners.

Groups of 40 or more pay from about $3,500 to $5,000 for two weeks, including dinners but not air fare.
