Italy Trips 

Dates are set for 2024 to Roseto Valfortore and we are working on some new towns and trip themes for the future!!  Dates are listed below. (more may be added if needed)

Please NOTE Once you decide you are even slightly interested... you must fill out a form and we will set up a phone call.(or you can just call me directly)  That's how I do it.  These are VERY personal trips near and dear to my heart. I don't just put it out there on the internet and wait for people to just show up.  We make friends first!  It's the Italian way!

That's why prices are not here on my site.  But rest assured it's the best deal ever!

Thank you for understanding.   

Love, Dorina
