Culinary & Cultural Experiences in Abruzzo

“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!”
