TRAVEL TO ITALY WITH LUCIANA & HER TEAM
“ITALY IS A DREAM THAT KEEPS RETURNING FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE”
– Anna Akhmatova This is so true and many of you have certainly returned to Italy many times! To those loyal guests who have visited Italy with us several times, I thank you immensely. There is always something new to explore but our service, knowledge and care are always present.
There is so much to experience in Abruzzo from the uncrowded Adriatic coastline to the magical mountains of the Maiella and Gran Sasso. The people are warm and welcoming whether you enjoy truffle hunting, cooking in a private home, having a coffee in a nonna’s house or just saying ciao to the market stall holders or to the bee keepers it is a truly happy corner of Italy.
Luciana will be celebrating 15 years of travel to Abruzzo, in 2019! A very special reunion in USA is planned for July 2019 to catch up with the many guests of Touring Abruzzo and now friends of Luciana.
Patricia and Roger – a huge thank you to you both for travelling with Luciana and her team on 4 different tours since 2008! It is a real honour to have escorted you to Abruzzo three times over 10 years, including “Grand Tour of Abruzzo” and this year they were excited to experience our new tour “Tastes of Marche” which they absolutely loved. GRAZIE MILLE!
Diane – wonderful Diane has travelled to Abruzzo 3 years in a row! In fact, it was because of her, that Luciana created her most popular tour, 10 day “Grand tour of Abruzzo”, so that she would have new experiences in Abruzzo! Of course, Diane followed that again with some private day tours in Pugliawith our guide Fabio.
Luci – In 2016, Luci and her friends visited Abruzzo for a short stay with a “Tastes of Abruzzo”tour followed by her Heritage and Ancestral research and reconnection in Abruzzo. Then this year, 2018 Luci returned with more girlfriends and wanted to see and experience more of her beloved land and so joined our “Grand Tour of Abruzzo”!
Filomena – What a fabulous time we all had with Filomena who travelled with her family and friends in 2015 discovering her own Abruzzo heritage and family with some Private Day Tours then in 2018 she returned again with a large group of more family and friends for more precious time with her Italian family… followed with a fully inclusive and immersive tour programme with “Grand Tour of Abruzzo”!
