Luciana will be celebrating her 16th year of touring in Abruzzo, with hundreds and hundreds of guests who have experienced the magic and beauty of this region, indulged in all things Italian and have travelled in small groups and enjoyed the very special personalised service.
When travelling on an Italy vacation with Luciana and her team you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend!


“Our 10 day trip turned into 14 days. I highly recommend, whether you have family from the Abruzzo region or not, one of Luciana’s “Touring Abruzzo” tours. Abruzzo is where the real Italians live – away from the high Italian tourist locations. Sit and relax in a quiet Abruzzo village cafe’ and take in the beauty of Italy on your vacation ”

John (USA) – May 2017


“Within 60 seconds of meeting Luciana,  you know that you are in skilled hands. My family (group of 8) had a wonderful, customised, fun and insightful day with Luciana as we explored the Penne area of Abruzzo. Our mission was to trace our family’s Italian roots.. Bravo, Luciana – we are your lifelong fans and can (and will!) recommend Touring Abruzzo to friends and family without hesitation. The best guided tour in Abruzzo.”

“Luciana and her team made our 2 week Italy trip to the Abruzzo region an amazing and unforgettable experience. She immersed us into the culture, wine, food, historic villages, abandoned castles and countryside like we were family. Our trip to Gran Sasso National Park was on my husband’s birthday and Luciana and Manuela prepared a delectable lunch and BBQ. We are already talking about booking our next Italy tour for next year..””

“Luciana provided my family with an all day private Italy tour fo Penne, my father’s birthplace including a stop at the town hall where we saw the actual birth record of my father and documents about my grandparents. She also arranged for lunch at a local Italian restaurant in a beautiful setting with the most incredible Abruzzese food.. Luciana exceeded our expectations and blessed us with a once in a lifetime experience we will remember and treasure this Italy tour forever. Grazie!!!”

Lina & Pasquale Abruzzo Tour Testimonial

“I joined Luciana’s Grand Tour of Abruzzo with a group of friends in 2013. Even though I had been to Abruzzo several times before, I discovered many different aspects of the culture, history, the food, nature and handcrafts. Every day revealed new experiences and treasures…truffle hunt and lunch, jewellery of Scanno etc etc. I loved it all.”
