Artviva Affiliate Program

Earn money simply by linking to us!

Earn money simply by linking to us!

What is it?

In addition to increasing the value and functionality of your website, it is a great way to increase profits.

Simply place one of our specially-designed banners on your website. You’ll then earn money each time a booking for our tours in Italy is generated from your site!

The Artviva Affiliate Program is particularly ideal for websites that focus on travel, wine, food, shopping or Italy in general.

How does the Affiliate Program work?

1. After completing our online application form, we will send a formal contract and a request for information including bank details to pay your commission for sales of our Italy tours booked via the banner on your site. You will also receive a list of commission rates we offer for each visit.

2. Once the completed contract is received and approval of the affiliate has been made, we will forward via e-mail special webmaster HTML code to install our Affiliate Program banner or link on your website. It only takes a few minutes to complete this operation.

3. All reservations made through your website as part of the Affiliate Program will go directly to our booking system to be processed. A special encryption code will keep track of which affiliate website the booking was made through. These reservations are automatically added to a quarterly report that we create for affiliates of reservations made through their websites and the amount of commission to be received.

4. Each month you will receive a statement from our company listing bookings completed via your site. You will simply need to send an invoice for the amount listed that this can be paid to you. After receiving your invoice, we will pay the commission owed to the account details provided, directly to your bank account.

Why join Artviva?

  • Featuring Artviva Tours on your web site increases visibility on search engines and aids search engine ranking.
  • A link from your site directly to our booking engine can increase the overall appeal and quality of your website.
  • Help regarding the Affiliate Program is available by phone or e-mail to help manage the program.

Commission on sales

To receive commissions on Artviva tours, all you have to do is install a link to our booking engine on your website, and we will do the rest while you earn money from each sale generated from your own site.

Commissions on sales of Artviva tours are paid at the end of the next calendar month after the customer has traveled. So if someone books an Artviva Tour through your website for June, the payment of your commission will be made at the end of July.

All the tours on our Affiliate Program are managed by Artviva. This means that bookings are made directly with Artviva, rather than through a third party.

We took tours in Venice, Florence, Sienna & Rome. Nothing short of exceptional at every turn. Knowledge, friendliness and honesty are what we got with every tour and guide. They are simply the best. Thank you all for making our trip as memorable as it was. Ciao!

Excellent, friendly and professions Venice tours

We look 4 tours in Venice today (27 Sept) and cannot adequately describe how pleased we were with the quality of the tours. Christina, our guide, was excellent and very knowledgable. And most importantly, she was extremely friendly and always courteous. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. The day was made up of the gondola ride, the original and best Venice tour (St. Marks), Doge's Palace tour and culminating with the Grand Canal tour on our own boat. Christina was very impressive with her knowledge and presentation skills. It was simply a joy to be in her small tour group. We cannot say enough good things about her. One of the highlights of the tour was being (coincidently) literally two boats away from George Clooney's water taxi as he made his way to the Aman Canal Grande Hotel. It made my wife's day. And we managed to achieve this by coincidence. The boat captain was very professional throughout the madness of many, many boats on the Grand Canal at this time (a little before 19:00). Bravo Art Viva!

Absolutely Amazing!

My boyfriend and I only had a day and a half to spend in Florence so we signed up for the Artviva Original Florence Walk. Our tour guide, Klaas, was just amazing. His love for Florence and it's history made the tour so enjoyable and made me fall in love with the city. In 3.5 hours (from 9 am - 12:30 pm) we saw: Piazza del Republica, Orsanmichele, Palazzo Davanzati, Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza di Santa Trinita, Basilica di Santa Trinita, Piazza del Limbo, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Cathedral of Florence with the Duomo, and part of the Bapistery. We were given head sets so we could hear Klaas talking even if we were not right next to him. This tour was amazing for seeing most of Florence in a very short amount of time. My boyfriend and I are not big fans of art so we did not go into the Uffizi but did go see the Statue of David in the Accademia Gallery using the skip the line tickets through Artviva as well. Could not be happier with the way this tour turned out. Thanks again Klaas and Artviva!

Kane was an excellent guide with a good sense of humor. He is very competent, enthusiastic, and a great story teller. I learnt a great deal from him about the city of Florence. He really made my short stay in Florence that much more enjoyable. Thank you Kane!

Kane was a fabulous guide! He had an extensive knowledge of relevant historical fact and made the history of Florence come alive. It really helped having a native English speaking guide as we found other guides who had English as their second language were often difficult to understand. Thank you Kane!

The 4 Venice tours, Venice in one Glorious Day, are outstanding. We did 2 on Mon 5/12 and 2 on Wed 5/14. Jen was our fantastic guide for 2 of them. I don't remember the names of the other 2 Italian ladies, but they were also excellent & easy to understand.

Venice in one glorious day!!!! Having heard from a friend that a visit to Venice could be a challenge as far as visiting the highlights is concerned, we decided to scour the internet for a suitable guided tour. Skipping the line was imperitive for us. Two ladies with 3 adolescent sons,a challenge in itself. We chose to "do" Venice in one day so that we could be free to return to places of interest with enough knowledge to recognise and be sure of not missing the most important sights. Skipping the line to enter the San Marco Basilica was absolutely a highlight. Thousands of visitors stood in the pouring rain in order to get a glimpse of this magnificent masterpiece. Our guide Christina was absolutely professional and was able to keep our teenage sons more than interested. It was also very much appreciated by us that Art Viva gave us a call the day previous to our tour that bad weather was expected and offered us to postpone the gondola trip.

I'd like to thank Angelos for giving us a fantastic evening tour 16th April. His local knowledge brought Florence alive and made our stay much more enjoyable. Thanks for the tips about places to go - we loved the Opera!

Simply Wonderful!

Touring the Uffizi Gallery with Klaus was the highlight of our trip to Florence; his passion and knowledge provided for an unforgettable afternoon. Booking a tour with ArtViva is highly recommended!

Awesome and highly recommended!

I used the Art Viva services while in Florence for two tours, The Uffizi Gallery and the Academia Gallery. Because I went in a low season I was the only client and the company still went through with the service, thank you! I had the best tour guild that I could ever hope for! Her name was Elizabeth. She was knowledgeable, fun to be with, very well informed and broke down the pieces and art history in a way that was artful in and of itself. I give the tour service and specifically Elizabeth a 100% A+ and recommend this group all the way. I had a great experience, thank you so much!!
