A Message of Hope from Italy

We are always hoping for change, something new to disrupt our day-to-day routine – but it’s in times like these that we consider very dear our normalcy and we wish it to come back soon.

This unprecedented situation has had many different challenges but we wanted to share a message of hope coming from Italy. When social distancing can create isolation and even more stress, even a song shouted out from the balconies can make us feel closer to each other. “Everything will go well” is the motto seen everywhere in Italy these days, from sticky notes left from passengers on doorbells to signs and paintings with big multicolored rainbows hanging out the windows, to lift up the spirit.

May the message from Italy reach everybody in need right now. We join the Italians in this message of hope to the World and everybody already affected!

“This Too Shall Pass.”

“If we are to have any hope for the future, those who have lanterns must pass them on to others. – Plato –

Special Coronavirus Edition – Understanding How It Could Affect Travel

There is a lot of contradicting news about Coronavirus, about its spread, and how it could affect your travel plans in Europe.
While it is too far to make predictions about traveling during the fall, we thought it would be helpful to put a blog together with some useful information from accredited websites across the web. This should help you stay informed and make more educated decisions regarding your plans.
Our travel planning for the fall is still moving forward as planned until we are advised otherwise by the Government and Health Organizations. We are confident the situation by then will be well taken under control and we will be able to enjoy some fun times traveling together.
If you have any other questions about your travels, we are here to help. We look forward to hearing from you!

Time for Carnevale in Italy, join us!

Carnevale, ogni scherzo vale!
(For Carnival, anything goes!)

Carnevale has roots in pagan festivals. Martedì Grasso precedes Ash Wednesday, which starts the 40-day period of Quaresima (Lent). Tradition wants that during this day all fat and most delicious foods available are eaten, foods that are forbidden during the 40 days of Lent, as for meats and the typical sweets of Carnevale (“chiacchiere” or “bugie”), thin layer of dough, deep-fried and covered with powdered sugar.
The highlight of this joyous winter celebration is artistic masks and colorful parades with music and parties. Celebrated since the 1200s, Carnivals in Italy are still hugely popular and loved by not just Italians but also visitors from all over the world.

The Best of Puglia Awaits You!

Stretched between the Adriatic and Ionian seas, Puglia’s sun-soaked landscape in southern Italy is celebrated for its signature dish, orecchiette with broccoli rabe. The pasta’s “little ears,” as “orecchiette” translates, are the perfect shape to scoop up the chunkier sauce.
