Mentions of Italy instantly invoke thoughts of mouth-watering food, rich local wines and family heritage dating back hundreds of years. You can experience all that and more by exploring Italy with our tours of Italy.  Consider a small group tour of Italy to  Abruzzo – one of Italy’s most stunning and untouched regions. By travelling with us to Abruzzo we explore traditional slow cooking, authentic food, Italian heritage, local nature and undiscovered treasures of the region as Luciana continues her mission to spread her knowledge of all things Abruzzese.

“With my tours and cooking classes I am not only able to share the secrets of this wonderful region, but also recipes and history that have been passed down through my own family and are close to my heart.”

Having lived and worked in Abruzzo over the last 13 years Luciana has been able to reconnect with her ancestral heritage, her family and her village.

“Discovering my ancestral heritage was truly inspiring, and something I have had the privilege of sharing with my past tour guests in Abruzzo.”
