Our party of 4 mature adult New Zealanders, were extremely fortunate in finding out about the services offered by Southern Italy Travel, Mirella and her team. Mirella tailormade a tour for us, traveling around the areas inland from Ortona, Abruzzo region, covering the Second World War history of the New Zealand Forces. She employed local historians, city guides and took us for a wonderful organic lunch en route. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting and tour of a local vineyard, and visits to Commonwealth War graves of our family members. This tour was one of the highlights of our month in Italy. We were grateful for the ability of Mirella and her guides to be able to converse with us in English, as our Italian was very minimal. We would definitely recommend this tour company to anyone wanting to visit this area of Italy.
