Southern Italy Travel was created and is owned by Mirella Ammirati. Born in Abruzzo, a marvelous and yet undiscovered region of Italy, Mirella studied a degree in Foreign Languages and Tourism management in Bologna.
Upon graduation in Mandarin language, she moved to China where she worked in the travel business for some years. During her Chinese experience Mirella had the opportunity to create a business plan which continued to develop through the years, until she decided to go back to Italy and start her own business.
As a world traveler herself, Mirella loves traveling and exploring amazing off-the-beaten-path destinations, all while directly interacting with local villagers and appreciating their local history and traditions.
It was her strong passion for genealogy and history that led her from China all the way to the beautiful ,remote towns of Southern Italy, where she currently resides and works full-time conducting genealogy researches and organizing Ancestry tours. She is an APG member – Association of Professional Genealogists – and a licensed tour guide.
