Travel with us! Our first group tour is open to everyone!

gruppi

The first group itineray that I decided to organize will make us visit three of our wonderful regions of Italy (in a amazing journey): for five days we will gather together the splendor of wonderful cities, such as: Parma , Modena, Mantua, Verona, Padua and Venice. The whole itinerary will not only be rich in cultural stages ... but also food and fun.

Do not forget that this area of our country is the "cradle" of some excellent products (think of balsamic vinegar, Parma ham and grana padano!). During the itinerary, among other things, there will be visits to an acetaia, a ham factory and dairy where we will be welcomed and where we will explain how these products are born and will also allow us to taste them on site. It will be a unique experience!
 

Thanks to several decades of experience and extraordinary organization of "Guiness Travel" Tour Operator, to whom I have turned to organizing the Itinerary, nothing will be left to chance! In fact, do not be intimidated by the length of the itinerary: we will visit "targeted", symbolic places of the following cities, able to count on organized trips, local guides and attendants always ready to our needs.

Much time will also be dedicated to by-night visits in the heart of the cities we will visit!

An itinerary really aimed at everyone: couples, individuals and families.
