This is one of the most rewarding parts to our work and service as the research involved is fascinating and many facts are uncovered. To see the emotions on our guests faces is just amazing and real connections are made to a place and time and to a people.

The Italian government has announced this year 2019 as the Year of Slow Travel. What is that you may ask?
Italy is not new at the art of slow.. in fact it was Italy which launched the Slow Food Movement in 1986 as a backlash to the fast food phenomenon.

Traveling slowly in Italy will give you the chance  to form a more meaningful and stronger connection to the towns you’re visiting, and you will be rewarded immensely.  With a slower pace and programme it is not about ticking off places and famous sights off a list, a waiting in endless queues to catch glimpses of art and architecture. It is about delving deeper and immersing fully into a lesser known region of Italy and staying in less crowded towns where you can feast on all your senses.

You will have time to unwind in a quiet cafe, watch the world go by, learn to use your Italian you have been learning and dying to practice! It is all about the experience and the meaningful connections you will make with the locals. You get to follow the seasons, eat what is local and fresh and appreciate the small pleasures all around you. It is these moments where magic is created and moments turn into lifelong memories. Travel Italy and take it slow and sure. Whether you visit Abruzzo, Marche or Molise in central Italy or Puglia and Basilicata in the heel of Italy and its deep south, there is something special awaiting you and will be the true highlight of your Italy vacation.


Last week on Travel Writers Radio they chatted about the Italian Government making 2019 the year of slow travel, and this week accomplished journalist, travel writer and reporter Veronica Matheson learnt more about the joys of slow travel from Luciana Masci who lives in Brisbane, but spends the Italian summer taking small groups of tourists around Abruzzo – the home of her ancestors – which is three hours east of Rome.

Listen here to a fabulous interview with Veronica and understand why Italy and in particular Abruzzo is the place to slow down and unwind and delve deeper into the rich traditions and culture which await you.

Life is an everyday gift crammed with momentous milestones that one ought to go all out and celebrate. For some, it may be turning 40 of 50 years of age while for others it may be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary or their long-awaited marriage or honeymoon.

The most obvious route to celebrate any life milestone is to organise a party or event and hoping everyone you invited will pitch up bearing gifts. It is a time consuming and stressful process coupled with endless questions of will there be enough drinks and food? Will the weather hold out? Not forgetting the massive clean up afterwards.

Not that we are forcibly persuading you to ditch your loved ones in favour of a trip overseas (we are actually) but why put yourself through all the stress of organising a party when you can experience and celebrate your life’s milestones with amazing tours in Italy?

We have come up with a few tantalising reasons you should be looking at tours to Italy brochures to celebrate your life’s milestones;

1) Celebrate A Milestone Birthday.

Whether you love to be the centre of attention on the day you made your grand entrance into this world, or you prefer to pretend it is not happening, a holiday is a great way to celebrate with loved ones or escape the uncomfortable attention.

You can celebrate adding a year to your life by relaxing in one of the many vineyards in the Abruzzo region, sipping on some world-renowned wine while being serenaded with scenic views. If you are looking to rekindle the spark, you can have the best of both worlds with a trip to Rome and experience city charm and the Italian countryside.

2) Have An Anniversary To Remember.

Are you always in the dog box every year because you forgot your anniversary? Sweep them off their feet and make up for past mistakes by whisking them away on a romantic trip to Italy. If you are looking to create a bespoke holiday, imagine strolling the cobbled streets of Lecce and Verona or visiting a local farmer on the Amalfi coast and tasting limoncello?
