Tour information


Puglia the Pearl of Mediterranean Sea!

Imagine this: a place with picturesque towns comparable (if not better) to the dreamy Greek villages you always see in postcards, the cities centuries-old massed with stories of ages and astounding architectural beauty. The ocean that touches this land could be mistaken for the Caribbean, and it is here, in the ‘heel of the boot,’ where you can kick back and enjoy true Italian culture in all aspects. Puglia is the Pearl of Italy.

Be ready to fall in love with this enchanting region while you drive through infinite groves of some of the oldest olive trees on the planet. These ancient fields paint your path to towns where walls are whitewashed and adorned with colourful flowers. It’s like being in a fairytale. You will wander the alleys of these idyllic villages, discovering traditional foods, embracing the warmth of the people, and simply taking in its wondrous beauty that will fill you to the core. Let’s not forget the mesmerizing, crystal blue waters and bright, sandy beaches backdropped by Mediterranean pine woods, which are all within this one enrapturing place.

Puglia’s nature, history, tradition, tastes and spirituality will captivate you. In Puglia, 100% pure Italy is waiting for you!

I had a wonderful time touring the Tuscany area with Alessio, he was very accommodating to a group full of ladies, always made sure we were having the best time and were able to visit the best places from the best places to buy a leather bag to the BEST gelato. He showed us the true beauty of Italy and helped each one of of us have a life changing experience. He truly enjoys seeing people in awe of Italy and will do anything to help you have a the most spectacular experience. I can’t wait to come back in the future!

My first trip to Italy was beyond my expectations. Alessio is knowledgeable, accommodating, and his love for his country is apparent in how he guides guests through each exquisite destination.  Alessio thoughtfully coordinates and plans out each day and is respectful of the guests requests for adjustments to the agenda or rest time to truly take in the beauty of Italy.  There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t long to return to Italy and breathe in that Tuscan air, sip on the rich olive oils and bright wines, and watch the sun rise and fall through the hills.  I highly recom... continue

Debbie and I spent the most wonderful week in Italy.We spent the week exploring and enjoying Florence and other parts of Tuscany, accompanied by the most wonderful, Alessio Mazza. So many wonderful restaurants, beautiful countryside towns, delicious coffee and treats, lovely walking on ancient streets, forts and castles, seaside towns with beautiful blue water, hot springs, and olive groves.

Bravissimo!!!  That’s what I would say about Alessio and his passion for Italy.  He was our tour guide this past summer and made the whole Italian experience unforgettable.  (I can’t wait to come back.)  His relationships with the locals and knowledge of those hidden gems made for a unique trip that a large tour company could never provide.  Any hiccups that arose (and they always do) he was on it and went above and beyond what was expected.  I look forward to coming back to Italy and experiencing more of the truly beautiful country thanks to Alessio.  Ciao!
