    If you love Italy as we do, for example you enjoy sight-seeing coupled with excellent food, wine, and hospitality, you will love this tour. Tour company owners, Michael and Nancy Morizio, are very accommodating while maintaining a professional demeanor. They have charismatic personalities and appropriately high energy levels necessary to keep up the pace for efficient use of every minute. Their excellent planning and research paid off with every day of the tour exceeding our expectations. Food writer, Italian food expert, and cooking teacher par excellence, Domenica Marchetti, completes their astute leadership team. Truly, every effort was made to ensure a happy experience. We were lucky with the weather at the end of September 2015 - as it is a time of year that could have been less hospitable, based on weather reports we were tracking prior to the trip last fall. On our one drizzly day, Nancy and Michael were adept at adjusting the itinerary. AbruzzoPresto! provided everything we'd wished for: access to special sites, opportunity to interact with friendly Italians (I'm not only talking about shop keepers - while there were opportunities to buy things, there were no "canned" demos where you are pressured to buy), tour the countryside in a comfortable vehicle as passengers, eat and drink very well at interesting restaurants presided over by proud owners and, one day, at a family home - I smile every time I think of that day! Bravo AbruzzoPresto!

    I was so fortunate to have a custom, food-focused 4-day tour with Nancy and Michael in May 2015, whom will both surely be lifelong friends of mine from here on out. As an Abruzzese-American and a chef, I was overwhelmed by the care and detail that were put into my experience, as well as the custom "improvising" of the tour once they got to know me a bit. They are so much fun and made my experience incredibly memorable beyond words. I look forward to traveling with them again soon. They are surely unparalleled when it comes to custom tours of this beautiful region!

    Nancy and Michael put together a tour of Abruzzo that had to accommodate the needs and interests of three generations of one family. They did a fantastic job combining great meals and wine tastings with excursions to mountain towns including Castelli which is known for its pottery. We also made it to the Adriatic sea for a wonderful lunch on a wharf. We stayed in two different towns and took excursions out from there. They are wonderful hosts and really do attend to every detail. They speak fluent Italian and have a deep love of the region. I recommend Abruzzo Presto to anyone who wants to expereience a beautiful part of Italy that has not been discovered by the masses.

    We were attending a small conference in Pescara and wanted to have a day to see the Abruzzo area. I found Abruzzo Presto on the internet and took a chance after reading the reviews. It turned out to be a spectacular decision! Four couples were taken on an extraordinary tour of majestic mountains, exquisite ruins, and medieval towns and treated to a sumptuous al fresco feast in a valley surrounded by snow covered mountains and the bluest of skies. Michael and Nancy are charming and knowledgable, but most of all, just really nice people. It certainly felt like touring with family and friends. We only wish we had more days to enjoy together. I hope we will be back...

    The owners of Abruzzo Presto, Mike and Nancy, are a passionate couple who love to share their Abruzzian culture, food, wine and friends with others. They created a full day of savoring this rich region, its products and making new friends for 8 people. We went to a 300 year old olive oil factory where we learned the art of tasting olive oil, drank their homemade wine and were treated to trays of antipasti. We visited the truffle farmer's store who provided white truffles for George Clooneys' wedding. The staff were very gracious and gave each of us truffle treats to taste and also to take home.The wine of this region is excellent and we were privileged to visit one of the newer vineyards, Fontefico, in the town of Vasto. We savored several of their wines while enjoying spectacular fresh food prepared in front of us. Knowing my husband loves opera, Mike and Nancy, both opera singers, sang a few arias from various operas. What a treat!! Recognizing on our request form that it was my birthday the next day, Mike and Nancy had the vintners mother make an absolutely delicious cake to celebrate. Every place we toured, it was evident that Mike and Nancy had made such good friends and we all now feel we have become a part of that circle of friends.They went above and beyond, to make this day tour very special. Having lived in Italy and traveled to many areas, I found Abruzzo to be so genuine, unspoiled, quiet and welcoming. If you want to get a taste of Abruzzo, book a day or a week tour with Abruzzo Presto! You will not be disappointed.
