    Best trip ever! Ascoli Piceno is a lovely town in Italy. It has great piazzas, good food and wonderful wine. The town is friendly. The tour itself was amazing. We itinerary was spot on- enough free time, interesting towns, great food and wine. Don’t just consider this tour—it is a must. The tour guide is an Italian native of Ascoli schooled in the US and Canada. His English is fluent. His wife is a Canadian expat who also speaks Italian. So, you get local expertise and great service!

    We traveled at the end of September and were blessed with beautiful weather our entire stay! The highlight of the trip was the absolutely superb food and our lunch by the water on our last day, certainly the best seafood we have ever tasted! Paul Melbourne, Australia

    The tour exceeded our expectations in every way! Our hotel was in a 18th century palace and steps away from the center of town. Certainly the highlight of the week was the wine taste done in the vineyard and our cooking class which was also in a historic building with 3 people helping us all the way, what fun. One of the most authentic experience we have ever had in our travels, Lucy, San Francisco

    We spent 9 amazing days exploring this region of Italy we had never heard of before. The best part for us was the absence of lines and large amounts of tourists everywhere we went. Certainly the best food and wine experience we ever had as well as outstanding customer service by our guide Giovanni who even packed our wine bottles and sent it to us! Jason and Margaret, Santa Clara, California

    Decided to finally go to Italy after almost 20 years. Giovanni and Chantelle took great care of us the entire week. All our visits were to local wine makers and small producers, what at treat. On the last day they even came with us shopping in town and dedicated a whole afternoon to us, helping us get small gifts for our friends and family. We could have not asked for a better vacation, Marche was stunning in the fall and the great care that went into organizing each day for our small group, was what made this visit one of a kind! Thank you Stephanie and Mark , Santa Barbara, California

    This trip beat our Tuscan trip in every way! Nothing will compare to our cooking experience on this journey. We had three chefs at our disposal for an entire afternoon and learned how to make some fun traditional dishes. The most impressive part was that basically all our ingredients came from the Villa's personal gardens.. 10/10, Thank you!, Laura and Frank
