Ciao, I'm Marino. I'm a food lover by nature and also a native of Abruzzo, also known as the greenest region of Europe. While many small town populations are shrinking as young Italians fly abroad to live and work in big cities around the world, I moved back home to make my dream a reality: To show curious travellers the most beautiful and underrated parts of Italy and to bring life back to these villages with sustainable tourism. At Experience BellaVita, our mission is to provide unique and authentic travel experiences so as travellers can discover the hidden gems of Italy while supporting local communities. Our tours and experiences are handpicked and vetted by us. We personally select collaborators who are as enthusiastic as I am about our region and sharing the local culture & heritage. Hence, I'm always on the move exploring the hidden hamlets in search of the most exquisite gastronomical specialities, cultural & artistic treasures. I won't just be your guide, but your friend in Abruzzo and with me & our team you will not just experience gastronomic traditions, savouring the flavours of the past, but you will also be involved in unique experiences focused on a true and authentic 'Italian Lifestyle' or Bella Vita, within the beautiful cornices of the ancient Italian hamlets.

    Hello Shaked, thank you for the wonderful review and for choosing Experience BellaVita. This helps us to grow our trust! We’re so happy you enjoyed our tour in the hidden region of Abruzzo. Next time, we can go to the top of the Gran Sasso mountain and admire the view from there and then go back to Andrea, the owner of the small organic restaurant you loved in Santo Stefano di Sessanio :D You’re always welcome back Shaked, Grazie.

    Hallo Alex, Tausend Dank! Was wonderful to share those fantastic days in Abruzzo with you. As you've seen this period of the year is filled with phenomenal food festivals and religious events. The truffle hunting in the woods is one of our specialities, thanks to the territory of Teramo and our super trained truffle dog, Luna & Piccola. I'll wait for you in July for the iconic TRUFFLE FESTIVAL and to make pasta 'alla Chitarra' with my nonna Amina. Ciao e Grazie, Marino

I'm happy we had warm sunny days, and that you loved both the truffle hunt and the olive harvest. You'll be always very welcome back to Abruzzo, when you will have your home her and maybe we will be neighbours then :D Grazie Mille, Hugs, Marino
