“Marino is an amazing tour guide with tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm for Abruzzo. He not only ran a great cooking class with his grandmother, visit to a salumeria, and a truffle-hunting expedition, but also recommended a complete itinerary with hotels, stays in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, visit to Rocca Colascio, Scanno, Pacentro... Wow - what a wonderful way to see this unexplored and authentic part of Italy!”Steve GedeonCANADA, Toronto
“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.”Shaked ZychlinskiISRAEL, Tel Aviv
“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.Emily W.USA, Ohio
We were definitely blessed to have met this charismatic, kind, and knowledgeable young man, and will absolutely use his services again!”
“The Abruzzo region has plenty of delicious food and wine, and Marino was kind enough to show us a lot of it. He knew so much about the region and we had a great time with him and his family. We're excited to try the other experiences next time!”Marie-LuiseAUSTRALIA, Melbourne

“Marino's tours are a unique opportunity to discover Abruzzo's local culture and food. His unpretentious and authentic approach was really refreshing and it was a distinct pleasure to meet lovely local people and get a real first hand experience of Abruzzo food and native culture...Marino is a friendly, stellar guide (and cook) and his English is excellent. In addition, he is extremely knowledgeable about local food and culture. I would definitely recommend travellers to venture off and explore the Abruzzo region and getting in on his tours.”Dianne C.Canada, Toronto
