ITALIAN ANCESTRY RESEARCH & TOUR OVERVIEW
Imagine spending a day driving through the picturesque Italian countryside, seeing the land where your ancestors lived and worked and raised their families. Then feel the nostalgia as you walk in your family’s footsteps when you stroll through your ancestral town, che figata!
Maybe we’ll even be lucky enough to be there during a local festival so you can join in the celebration of regional products and Italian cooking. In any event, you’ll learn about the history and traditions of the place, and enjoy the hospitality that is so wonderful and unique in every region of Italy.
We will do everything possible to reconnect you with your family still living in Italy. Think of the thrill of coming face to face with your long-lost Italian relatives, sharing stories of how your family legacy has carried on and branched out in different ways in different cultures on both sides of the sea.
IN THE PIAZZAS AND AT THE ARCHIVES
Whether you need a little help speaking Italian or a lot, we’ll be there by your side to chat with locals in the piazzas and cafés as they paint a picture of the past for you. If you need anything from the archives in the municiple hall of records or at your family’s parish we’ll be happy to take you there and help with that as well.
Of course no day trip in Italy would be complete without that all-important ingredient of Italian life: FOOD. We’ll scope out a genuine trattoria or osteria (a casual eatery, often rustic, that serves local cuisine) unless of course your relatives invite you for lunch!
PAY ONLY FOR THE CAR & DRIVER
