QUICK GLIMPSE!  AMALFI COAST! Relax in your private speedboat while cruising the coast of Amalfi. Take a dip and feel the cool sea against your skin. Yoga yourself high above the lemon groves, and fill your eyes with beautiful sea views. And when you come home, you may still be the same, and yes, you may go back to the same old job, but something in your mind will have changed. And trust me, that change’s everything.

It’s a “Race with Gracie” to see who can get to the first truffle. Gracie is our Truffle Dog, and she has been trained since a puppy by Italy’s leading truffle trainer, our guide Gianni!

Find yourself in a truffle field digging with Gracie, in a Barolo vineyard, age-old chocolate factory, or floating in a balloon above the vines. One of our greatest pleasures is stretching our legs on hikes that show you the best stunning views around. Hike your way into farmhouses and vineyards for tastings and cooking courses. Throw in some marzipan, honey, hazelnuts and grappa and old and elegant cities. We think you would like traveling with us to Piedmont. Full and exceptional days the normal tourist can only dream about.

Sicily is unlike any other part of Italy. Wild in nature, delicious in wines, mouth-watering in food, and colorful in every way. Richness and ruins side by side. Beauty and the beast. Poverty and Poetry. Pull-on your boot-straps and enjoy the diversity. It’s a very good ride.
