My Tour is the tour of Fairy Tales … I will bring you back, between the Middle Age and Renaissance time.

My husband and I will take you to discover places  of Italy not yet well known, full of history and magic! We will explore Tuscia, a historical region of Italy in the north of Lazio, territories under Etruscan influence, lands of important battles during the Roman Empire and the Middle Age.

Tuscia has a wonderful and infinite history, of which you can still discover the testimonies by visiting the archaeological areas and ancient necropolises. It’s a myriad of enchanting medieval  villages, renaissance villas and palaces, wonderful gardens … Are we going to discover it together?

Tuscia is the place where my husband and I grew up. Together we will explore all the culinary traditions of Tuscia by sitting in our favourite restaurants, trattorie and osterie… It will be a magical experience!

 

 

 

My husband Valerio and I will be waiting for you in Soriano nel Cimino, located in the heart of Tuscia (north of Lazio). Soriano is our home and we know all the secrets of this land. Here we will enjoy one of the most beautiful Historical Festivals of Italy La Sagra delle Castagne.

We will be spending 8 nights  in a beautiful Historic House, situated in Soriano nel Cimino, Casina degli Specchi. Here,  every morning we will enjoy rich and relaxing breakfasts. I will also organise an unforgettable dinner in the most suggestive room of Casina. I recommend to bring with you an elegant dress for this occasion.

Every day we will visit different  medieval villages, magical forests and renaissance villas with our guide Anna Rita. She was born  in the heart of Tuscia. She is Tourist Guide of Regione Lazio and a  registered Environmental Excursion Guide. Her greatest satisfaction is to read the amazement and gratitude of the visitors that she accompanies to discover the artistic-natural treasures of her Tuscia.

 

 

 

 

We will make all our transfers with the professional private driver Alessandro and his Mercedes Viano.


 

During our tour we will be eating in many restaurants, trattorie and osterie. We will taste traditional and local food, bud also fine dining food in two rated Restaurants Michelin Star: Danilo Ciavattini , Casa Iozzia.

During our magical experience  we will be visiting  Sergio Mottura Winery, considered  the greatest interpreter of "Grechetto" in the world. He will take us through the vineyards and after that we will enjoy a tasting-dinner in his beautiful and elegant farmhouse.
