"The experience was definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy"

I want to thank Southern Italy Travel for everything they did for us in researching my family history.  The experience Mirella put together far exceeded anything that I thought was possible. I thought we would maybe find out about who my two times great grandparents were and see the church, but I was completely blown away by how she rolled out the red carpet for us in Spoltore, Abruzzo region. Read more

"They definitely exceeded my expectations"

I found Mirella on the Association of Professional Genealogists. I knew that was an organization to be trusted.  I reviewed the websites of all the Italian genealogists on the site and I really liked what her clients said about her. I was impressed with her response and I hired her to research both my great grandfather and my great grandmother’s lines and to accompany us on the first two days of our trip. Read more

"They helped us understand our history and something of ourselves"

Mirella Ammirati’s Southern Italian Travel is an amazing resource for ancestral research and cultural heritage. .Having provided them with some family names and birth dates, they were able to construct a family tree going back five generations. But that was just the foundation of their exceptional efforts to provide me with a day I’ll never forget. Read more

"The best experience that we could have"

I feel so fortunate that I chose Mirella Ammirati to assist me in my search into my family heritage!  She was responsive to my desire to learn about my father’s heritage in Pozzilli from the moment I found her on the internet.  Initially only stranger to me off the internet, after months of collaboration with her, she became more than a name, a service.

"What a wonderful day!"

Our remarkable experience started with a visit with the mayor of Torano Nuovo… who was expecting us!  The mayor, as well as all other town’s people we met, were so welcoming and made us feel like long lost neighbors who had returned home. Mirella’s effortless translations allowed for pleasant conversation with all. Read more

"You gave our family a gift we will never forget"

Mirella met us in my grandfather’s village, Cercepiccola, with a lovely man who was the representative for the mayor’s office. They gave us a thorough and personalized tour of the village, showing us my grandfather’s Baptismal records, their church and the house my uncle was born in. Read more

"An authentic cultural experience in Italy"

As a fourth-generation Italian American I’ve always dreamed of visiting Italy, dreamed of visiting cities like Rome and Naples, but also dreamed of visiting the rural mountainous towns my great-grandparents knew as home before making the arduous journey to the United States.  Read more

"An outstanding life experience"

My hope was to see where my dad was born, walk the roads he walked, meet family members that hadn’t emigrated to Canada as my father had, and to ‘experience’ a fragment of what may have been his life. Read more
