Italy Re-Imagined

I was invited to Milan, Italy to attend the 2020 BIT Exhibition. This spectacular event showcased over 1300 suppliers from many countries, my interest centered around Italy. Therefore, I learned new experiences to add to my portfolio of options. The suppliers took the form of tour operators to destination specialists, castles to accommodations. Because of this, they could work with all budgets and experiences needed. Therefore, Italy Re-imagined

Candlelit Dinner in the Old Prison of the Castle

I’ve always dreamt of a fairy tale wedding, an anniversary in a historic setting such as a medieval castle.  The Castello Orsini is a charming hotel and provides a stunning location for weddings, events, or even a romantic candlelit dinner.  The castle is situated in the lush countryside of Sabina ( about 40 km from Rome) where you can experience romance like never before. Create unique experiences; therefore memories for years to come.

Learn to cook “MaMa’s way…Florence

MaMa Florence is more than a cooking school, it is a dynamic space created to share Italian food and wine history, as well as culture and know-how through experiential education in a fun and convivial environment. Every cooking class features incredible ingredients sourced from local, sustainable resources. Presented by our always-curious chefs, letting the ingredients lead the way; the culmination of each cooking class is an authentic Italian meal shared around the table with new friends.

In other words, the experience doesn’t end with food; thanks to our special wine connections, your dishes will be paired with Italy’s top fine wines. Take a wine class or participate in a tour to learn more about Tuscan wine and food. Learn how coffee is enjoyed in Italy at the espresso bar, and not sitting at a table with a muffin or danish. Coffee is a quick hello to the barista and down the hatch.

Explore the hidden corners of the most important Italian cities and breathtaking Medieval towns, where time has stopped. Spend your holiday as the guardian of a tower dating back to 1170. Outlandish Italy, Lino in particular, impressed me with their suggestions of “off the beaten path” activities.
