"I've been to Italy a number of times, but this trip was like visiting old friends!"

Italian Tours of Culture, Culinary Arts, Wine and Textiles.


About our Tours

I moved to Germany  in 1998 for a year of work and European living.  Whenever I had enough free time I found myself heading to Italy to “live the Italian life”;  eating, drinking, visiting friends and watching life happen.  After moving back to the US, I continued to escape to Italy for holidays and whenever I could spend a week or two.
