Marino also has so much knowledge of and passion for Abruzzo. His love for this area, as well as the culture and the food, is evident and it is his wish to share it with those who have yet to discover the beauty and charm of Abruzzo. Enjoy your experience with Marino!

The BellaVita Experience was probably one of my best choices so far. I've been to Italy before, but mostly to the well-known touristic places. But this trip to Abruzzo, with Marino as tour-guide has presented a whole new Italy to me.

Marino was waiting for our group of six when we arrived to FCO Rome. Because of him, we felt sincerely welcomed to Italy! Marino was hired as our driver to Teramo, Abruzzo, but he went the “extra mile”, so to speak.
We were definitely blessed to have met this charismatic, kind, and knowledgeable young man, and will absolutely use his services again!

Truly our favorite experience on our most recent trip to Italy!!! Marino and his family are exquisite and genuinely passionate about sharing their home, their traditions and their time to experience making an authentic Abruzzo-style cuisine. We had many laughs, learned recipes we cannot wait to replicate and savored every single bite of our delicious preparations.

Benvenuti in Abruzzo, where the 130 km of the Adriatic coast overlook the majestic Gran Sasso and Majella mountains. Just at few kilometers away from the sea we step into the real mountains.
