Why join me on my small group tours of Italy

​If you have been following me on the Rocky Travel Blog for a while, you may know that I am a solo travel addict. 

I've been travelling alone for +30 years around the world. I started ​my solo adventures in my 20s ​in Italy, my home country, where I came back to reside a while ago.  I have a love & hate relationship with Italy: I love the food, the culture and the fact that no matter where you are in Italy there is always a charming place around the corner to explore. But at the same time, I ​am struggling with the chaos and ​its complicated​ rules.

This year I've launched my own tours for the solo traveller

​I'm thrilled to show to ​​show you Italy, my home country, with the knowledge of an insider and - at the same time - see it through the eyes of a first-time traveller!

​What to expect from our guided tours of Italy?

We will be active in the nature and exploring the mountains, mainly in the Italian Alps and Dolomites. ​Besides walking in nature and hiking in the mountains, we will be ​discovering cities like Venice, Trieste, and the best of Sicily has to offer, on a round trip. Eating the most exquisite Italian food, getting to know the locals ​and making new friends will be part and parcel of my group tours.  

​We have teamed up with high professionals in the travel and tourism industry, so when hiking in the Dolomites a certified mountain and alpine guide will join us to lead the hike. ​All other activities and tours will be run by myself in collaboration of small local tour operators​ that ​care for eco-sustainable trips.

W​e will ​mix the great outdoors with cultural activities. To sum it up how we will be spending the time together and give you an idea of the ​core activities, here is a rough breakdown of the tour: 50% Outdoor, 30% Italian cities and culture 20% Italian food, wine tastings and hands-on experiences.
