You create and customize as you go! (with as much or as little help as you want)

So, our first visit is going to be Italy with 10-day Itinerary of flavors, scents and aromas. A flamboyant nation that speaks with their hands and a language that dances on your tongue. Contrasting landscapes seasoned with monument at castles, churches and hilltop fortresses, a symphony of flavors, scents and aromas. Italy is for lovers of everything that simply whisper “Buono Gusto”.
Our route guides us along the verdant rural countryside to the romantic shores of Lake Como, adorned with luxurious villas and the beautiful “Pearl of the Lake”; Bellagio. We explore hilltop villages of Cinque Terre clinging to the rugged coastline of the Italian Riviera; we meander through golden fields of wheat and green olive groves, tasting the oils and local cheeses, as we sip our way along some of the most famous wine routes of the world; we travel by way of landscapes unchanged since medieval times, decorated with country churches, beautiful abbeys, medieval villages and hilltop castles; we explore Florence, the jewel of the Renaissance, on the banks of the River Arno, a treasure chest of artist masterpieces, colored marbles and architectural wonders. We collect our last impressions in the capital Rome, modern and old, past and present …forever the “Eternal City”.
