Cari amici: It’s often said that travel is not about what you see, but rather what you experience. Join me and get away from the large crowds and tourist destinations and discover the true Italy, the land where I was born, educated and spend most of my own vacation time. Visit Abruzzo, Marche, Lazio, Umbria, Piedmont, Tuscany, Parma and more and experience the Italian way of life, the wonderful Dolce Vita so often imitated but not so simple to convert into reality. The time you spend with me it’s all about fun, laughter and the sense of family we seek away from home.

I'll help you immerse yourself into the warm and friendly Italian culture and experience Italy among the Italians. My cooking vacations in Italy are much more than simply cooking tours. I’ll provide you with the experience of a life time, and help you discover Italy from a completely new perspective. You’ll have the opportunity to meet local Chefs, Winemakers, Cheese-mongers, Salami makers, Olive oil experts and all the culture you can possibly absorb. But most of all you will discover the peaceful sense of hospitality we all search for in a foreign place. Our cooking classes are hands-on led by award-winning professionals along with local mothers who will share with you those old recipes on the way to extinction. I could be writing forever on what I would like to share about my country, but I rather stop here and let you fantasize. So click on the pages of interest on this site and get the feel of a true culture and culinary journey. I am here to answer any of your questions. Oh, I almost forgot: It's always all-inclusive. A presto.
