Our latest e-newsletter is now out and ready to read. Now you can read all our latest travel news to Italy in 2021.

I have written a real heart felt newsletter in these strange and even distressing times for many of us. The world has been shaken up and it is hard to make plans in the foreseeable future. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy too.

We can only continue to keep our dream of travelling to Italy alive each and every day. It is super frustrating for everyone – guests who are itching to travel again and for guests who are saddened with their cancellation or postponement of their Italy travels this year. It is frustrating for us as tour operators to see all our work disappear with the click of a finger, just like that. After 16 years of hard work it is not easy to just close up and fold up just like that.. My team and I will not be beaten but need to rise again and be ready to continue to share our love and passion for Abruzzo and the other central and southern Italy regions we travel to.

Or you may like to shop our range of fine ceramics made in Pescara and available online here. They make perfect gifts for anniversaries, birthdays and Christmas! They are beautifully packaged as well to arrive all the way to your door! There are several varieties of designs from the presentosa motif again to the rose window of Atri cathedral, to the fun ladies of Scanno wearing their traditional Abruzzo costume.

Or how about this wonderful memoir written by Sabatino Masci (Luciana’s father) who at age 80 wrote his story of his life and hardships in Abruzzo as a child, surviving the second World War and deciding at age 19 to leave his beloved Abruzzo for distant lands….like Australia. It is an easy to read account of his journey which he named “A Difficult Harvest”.  The font is large enough and an easy read. There are many stories my father has told all of his children yet each time I read it there are new tales and old memories which come back to me… A great read and it makes an ideal gift for those who love reading and love non fiction.
