Gaetano will meet you at the wine estate.
Gaetano leads a discovery of the undiscovered culture and history of the Emilia-Romagna region. We have chosen this region because it is off the normal tourist track and has not become glamorised. We invite you to join Gaetano your tour manager, in the sunny region of Emilia-Romagna staying in the countryside on a typical wine estate. You’ll meet our wonderful Italian friends, including the opportunity to visit places off the main tourist routes.
Gaetano – English speaking, highly qualified (lectures at Smithsonian in New York), an expert on the history and modern day life of Italy’s unique regions. Gaetano has guided groups through Corsica & Sardinia for Etruscan Pleasures (Italia) Ltd, on several occasions, including his ‘home’ region of Sicily. He has an enthusiastic, caring and fun personality. Gaetano is Sicilian and has a passion also for the other islands in the Mediterranean, where Italians have established a livelihood and a version of their customs and culture still exist. The ancient customs, culture and architecture is still evident in the different regions of Italy, however sadly undiscovered by many tourists. Gaetano will enlighten you and you will be amazed at how fascinating this region of Italy is and how individually different it is from other regions of Italy.
