Our personalized trip to Italy, designed by you and your staff, was AWESOME in every way.
From the moment we were pick-up by our first driver, Giorgio ( what a delightful very smart man), to the last night in Florence before flying home to Houston, Texas, each and every one of our personalized tours as well as our excellent accommodations in the castles were most AMAZING…
We really enjoyed our tour of the Pinzani Company in the Chianti Region. We so enjoyed the selection of delicious cheeses in the tasting room and bought our favorites to take back home. Each time we have a taste we fall into memories..
Our personal guide as guiding us through HISTORY!
Our drivers and guides were beyond compare.. Very professional and prompt !!
The truffle hunt with “Emma”, the dog, was so enjoyable. It was exciting to see the dog search for the truffles buried underground and finally zero in on one for us to dig up and save in our 100 year old truffle hunter’s leather bag! After the truffle hunting was done, we went to one our wonderful cooking classes to learn how to prepare the truffles and combining them with handmade pasta! All along the way we were learning Italian and our hosts were learning some Texan! It was all so much fun and we were all laughing while preparing the meals. Delicious food !!
One part of our program was a visit to La Verna, the place where St. Francis received his Stigmata. This visit to this place as well as the Hermitage where the Benedictine Monks live in silence, was so inspiring and truly a spiritual experience!
The architecture of the cathedrals and the buildings of the Renaissance Period plus the Frescos were amazing and breath taking in size.
Matteo, thank you for helping us to realize our dream trip of a lifetime! We can now check this trip to Italy off our bucket list, and yes, of course we can’t wait to return !!
We thank you and Danela for a lovely evening in Perugia, getting to meet and visit was such a treat!!
Here are a few of our memories in photos for you.
Until we meet again, Arrivederci!
