Nature Walks, Horseback Riding, Cooking Lessons, Local Festivals, Soccer Games with Locals and More Included in Italian Connection's Custom Family Travel Tours for Family Vacations

Just in time for summer family travel , Italian Connection's top local experts are developing custom family tours for family vacations in Italy for adults and children of all ages.

Families can enjoy nature walks among the blooming wildflowers in the Dolomites, soccer games with the local children in Tuscany, a truffle hunt with a trifulau (truffle hunter) and his trusty dog in Piedmont, shaping cheese curds into plump provola in Sicily, learning the secrets of betting on race horses during the Palio in Siena, climbing the 30-story high Torre di Mangia in the Piazza del Campo, and more with Italian Connection's family vacations. From accommodations in a luxury private villa to a quaint B&B or a rustic farm house, the custom family travel tours combine free time to explore the surrounding towns and relaxation in the fields and flowers with memorable guided activities, city tours and Italian cooking lessons.

Italian Connection will customize the family travel tours according to the group's budget to any of their regions of expertise with insider-knowledge, including less explored areas in the Dolomites (in the northeastern Italian Alps), Piedmont, Tuscany, Cinque Terre of the Italian Riviera, Umbria, the Amalfi Coast, and Sicily. The private family travel tours can be arranged for three to ten days and include accommodations, guided walks, most meals, excellent wines and unique insider experiences.

Italian Connection is an Italy-based tour operator whose top local guides take you behind the scene on hand-crafted walking, cooking and cultural tours in seven different regions of Italy. Small groups of participants cook alongside noted cookbook author Eleonora Consoli in her home kitchen, meet celebrated chef Ciccio Sultano in Sicily and dine at his 2-star Michelin restaurant "Il Duomo," make bread from the hard wheat flour grown on tiny organic farms, pick wild herbs and plants that flavor the day's lunch, and make hand-rolled pasta in La Maremma where some villagers never heard of their neighbor George Clooney. Visitors meet colorful personalities including an authority on Alpine wildflowers, the owner of Italy's only cashmere goat farm and a village woman who blazes walking trails on an island with no roads. Twenty-nine land-only tours are offered through the year, including the Splendors of Sicily, named by National Geographic Traveler as one of its 2006 "50 Tours of a Lifetime." Four walking levels range from "stroll" to "fitness" which can burn up to 1,500 calories a day! Private custom tours can also be arranged.
