Why Italy?


The name Italy conjures up a variety of traditional travel images: art, fashion, amazing food, superb wines, Mediterranean islands and ancient ruins, fairy-tale lakes, mountains, breath-taking churches, Tuscan countryside and gondolas on Venice’s canals. It’s hardly any surprise that the phrase La Dolce Vita (‘The Sweet Life’) is an Italian one. This charming and highly characteristic nation has learned to live life’s simple but essential pleasures in perfect balance – food, family, fashion and good humour.

Laura Driol was born in Italy, and speaks fluent Italian. Her roots in the travel industry lie in specialising as an incoming tour operator, coupled with first hand experience of travel within Italy itself which she mastered over countless trips to the country.

Laura soon realised that her passion lay in food & wine tours, specifically for smaller groups. Her highly personal client relationships, and a special interest in finding “off the beaten track” experiences, have earned her a reputation within the South African leisure market as an expert in unique and authentic Italian experiences.

Italy is the perfect destination to celebrate a special occasion, be that a birthday, anniversary, or graduation. Or if you simply enjoy cooking and having fun with friends and family.

In our experience, each client has unique expectations, and itineraries need to be specially designed in accordance with those expectations.
