“If you have been wanting to go to Italy, experience the culture, food and wine on a local level you need to go with my friend Alessandra! She and her entire family help you experience Italy like a local. One of my favorite times was,making pizza with Alessandra, her brother and her aunt at her parent’s farm. The best part…having her dad’s homemade wine and her brother’s homemade limoncello. You will visit towns that don’t make the tourist books, but should. You’ll visit wineries that are hundreds of years old. You’ll get guided tours by a local that makes you understand how important history is to the Italians. This is the most cost efficient and exciting way to go to Italy for 7 days and have the time of your life. Just do it…you won’t regret it!”
