Alyona and Franco
Creators and organizers of the tour
The inspiration to create a unique private tour came to me when I visited the native region of my husband Franco for the third time. I was astonished how he equally loves and cherishes all historical and architectural landmarks, enlisted in the World Heritage Sites list, and regular local people, resting next to their homes in the evenings. Franco would always take me to the most secret places of "his" Italy and treat me to simple authentic food, cooked from the freshest produce. His eyes were filled with joy when he saw how deeply I was falling in love with this incredible and marvellous land, Puglia, rural and simple, with open-hearted and merry people, not familiar with the high pace of city life and enjoying every minute of their lives. That is why we decided that this is Puglia we want to share with travellers, willing to become native Apuglians for a week, treating themselves to gastronomic temptations and living the Dolce Vita!
