I’ll be writing much more about our time together and experiences but don’t just take my word for it…

Here’s what my fellow lovers of Puglia have to say:

Puglia Fall 2014 - CarolCarol L.: If you want to experience rural Italy from the Italian’s point of view, this trip is for you!  You will see many wonderful small cities and villages, taste some of the best food in all of Italy, and enjoy it among the warm and welcoming people of the smaller cities.  Victoria and her cohorts in Puglia pulled out all of the stops to provide a truly great experience.”

Puglia Fall 2014 - Cheryl

Cheryl K.: “This trip was everything it promised and more.  I have been to Italy twice before but never got the real ‘italian’ experience (the food, wine, people).  And the value for the price was terrific.  This was a real lifestyle and food odyssey and I loved every minute of it.”

Puglia Fall 2014 - Ginny


Ginny D.: “This was a trip of a lifetime for me and so needed. Victoria made
every aspect of the trip a delight. Unpacking just one time was a plus, as well as having every thing so organized and not wasting any of our time figuring out what to do next. The quality of    
food, the excursions, and the warmth of everyone at the Masseria was beyond exception.  I would definitely recommend the trip to others.  Now to save money for next exciting trip with Victoria.”
