Owner description: Intimate, undiscovered, Italy. Private tours of beautiful Abruzzo. Let us take you on an Italian trip that you've up to now only dreamed about!
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Michael and Nancy showed us a great time on a recent visit, taking us places we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Highlight was a behind-the-scenes tour of the mysterious Hermitage of Santo Spirito, which dates from the 11th century and is built into mountainside rock. And when it comes to local, traditional food, they really know what they're doing. Knowledgeable, helpful, enthusiastic and friendly.

Thanks for the great review! It wasn’t until after 17 years of touring Abruzzo ourselves – and becoming experts in the region – that we finally decided it was time to begin touring others to see the amazing sights and tastes that we had come to know and love and view as "our own.” As for the local, traditional food, because we believe it’s the best in all of Italy, we're confident in offering choices to challenge the most discriminating of palates, such as yours. Thanks for your helpful insight into the Abruzzese kitchen. By the way, having your whole wonderful family with us just added to the “familiar atmosphere” we try so hard to provide for our guests. Come back again, and let us show you even more, OK!

INCREDIBLE TOUR! The mountains of Abruzzo are stunning and pristine--my jaw was always dropping--and I was so glad to have local guides who got us into amazing vineyards, cantinas, cheese-makers, restaurants and know the best hiking trails, museums, cafes, etc. Who knew that Abruzzo makes superlative Montepulcianos that they never export to the States? I can't believe the superb wines we were able to snag. Meeting a truffle hunter and his nine truffle dogs and having a fresh pasta tutorial were other really high points of the trip. Accomplished translators are VERY HELPFUL in this region, which is gorgeous but almost entirely undiscovered by tourists. Handmade pastas, incredible wines, saffron fields, fresh fish on a trabocco, hiking, cafes, beaches, medieval castles--tell the Morizios what you want, and they make it all happen, magically. I spent the most relaxing vacation in recent memory. Oh, and ask Nancy and Michael to sing some Puccini for you!

It was an absolute pleasure having you on our tour! What enthusiasm and joy you were able to share as we bounced along from one site to another - from the mountains to the seashore... and now it appears you possess as much passion for Abruzzo as we do. May I add that your knowledge of Italian cuisine was most impressive – and thanks for bringing along that burrata to Campo Imperatore for us all to sample, that was terrific. Please come back with us in 2014 during your summer break, or as soon as possible, OK. We would so love to have you aboard again!
