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.
Mirella Ammirati and the team at Southern Italy Travel made this dream a reality. They illuminated my past and enriched my present-day life, extracting historical information about my ancestors that I couldn’t obtain from any website and escorting me to the towns of my maternal and paternal great-grandparents, where I was greeted by local officials and introduced to living relatives who embraced me at once.
I visited many gorgeous places during my visit to Italy this past spring; I ate utterly delicious food and absorbed stunningly beautiful sights, but everything that made my journey a life-altering experience resulted from the hard work and compassion of the people at Southern Italy Travel.
No matter how much or how little you know about your Italian ancestry, if you desire an authentic cultural experience in Italy, one that connects you more deeply to your family history, and also to yourself, I strongly urge you to contact Southern Italy Travel.
I cannot say enough laudatory things about Mirella and her team, or overstate the value of the services they provide.
