Description

Sicily, the gem of Southern Italy!

If Sicily remains an undiscovered part of the bel paese to you, then this is the moment to discover this gem of Southern Italy.
It’s an island located right in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, and because of its strategic position it was conquered and dominated by an incredible number of civilizations. Greeks, Romans, Normans, Spanish and Arabian were the most influential populations that ruled this place,
This gave us a modern mix of history, architecture, culture, and food, unique in the whole world.
The island is covered with Greek and Roman temples over 2000 years old, and the towns are in Norman or Spanish Baroque style, made of material that almost seems to sparkle at sunset.
This is the place where Europe and Africa almost touch and you see that in the colors of this land.
Beaches covered with sand that will remind you of gold, and emerald green water at just the right temperature for swimming, the black rocks of the ever-intrusive Etna Volcano, the vibrant red of its full bodied wines.
You will experience all of this in the flesh, in a trip that will remain in your memories forever.

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!
