“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Spring 2023 trips ANNOUNCED!
BEGINNING to brainstorm Fall, 2023 trips. There will be three trips. September and October. Thinking:
1) Calabria and Eastern Sicily
2) The Amalfi Coast
3) A food-based tour based at my favorite Agritourismo in the mountains south of Modena.
Email you if you want details as they come together! Come solo, bring a friend, or gather the whole dang group of friends and we can customize the trip to suit your desires!
Three spring, 2023 trips have been announced:
2 in Puglia and one
in Umbria & Tuscany

** There are 4 spaces available for my April 7 - April 16, 2023 Puglia trip.
** The April 30 - May, 10, 2023 Puglia trip is SOLD OUT!
EMAIL ME NOW FOR DETAILS:
2022 is NOW SOLD OUT!!!
** UPDATE **
JUST ADDED ONE MORE JULY TRIP TO THE CINQUE TERRE... it sold out within two weeks.
I had four sold out trips scheduled for 2020. Of course, all had to be rescheduled for 2021 due to COVID. The trip rescheduled for June 2021 has now been rescheduled (again) for June 2022.
I returned from 5 1/2 weeks in Italy this past October.....
Oh. My. God it was so good to be back! I completed three trips that had been rescheduled for October, 2021. All my pre-travel COVID fears were alleviated as soon as I arrived. Italians are learning to co-exist with COVID. Mask-wearing indoors is universal and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within prior 48 hours is required to enter indoor space and most public transportation. Rapid tests are inexpensive, and readily available throughout the country. All thirteen guests made it in and out of the country without testing positive for COVID. To be honest, after a couple of days, we stopped worrying! Even with Omicron now circulating, Italy feels like an incredibly safe place to visit during a pandemic. Italians are learning to co-exist with COVID.
My passion for sharing Italy with small groups has been reignited! I recently planned three trips for Fall, 2022. After three years, I am anxious to return to Puglia. And I am eager to return to the Amalfi Coast. Both fabulous spots to visit in October as the hordes of tourists are largely gone and the water is still warm enough to swim in!
I had a waiting list of people interested in going to Italy with me and filled two trips within 2 weeks. Within the next month all three Fall, 2022 trips SOLD OUT. I will be taking 27 guests with me to Italy in 2022!
Drop me a line if you'd like to be on my mailing list. You will be the first to know when future trips are announced.
And as always, I invite you to gather a group of friends and we will create a private trip for you all! I am absolutely open to suggestions.
