"To see Italy--the real Italy--you must live like an Italian. With Italia Outdoors that is exactly what you get to do. Kathy and Vernon make the perfect pair with Vernon's insiders prowess of all things Italian and Kathy's quest for unknown wines and hidden artisanal treasures. From the first glass of prosecco on the terrace of the hotel overlooking olive groves, everything immediately feels different-pressures evaporate and adventure, challenges and enormous amounts of everyday culinary serendipity await. I'll never forget our first day of cycling. After climbing more than a few rolling hills through several vineyards (wines we would later try) we wound our way down the ridge, fig and olive trees everywhere, to the town of Mossano. We stopped at a small trattoria for a late morning refueling, not your typical American version of sunflower seeds and gatorade, but freshly baked bread with prosciutto & prosecco. The local men were sitting, sipping, talking, and simply taking in the morning. It exactly was I wanted to be.

The authentic Italy, whether cruising on a magnificent, locally made road bike, sitting in a cafe, or cooking up fresh squash blossom frito, is effortlessly available for the taking. ItaliaOutdoors supplies the framework for the trip of a lifetime, leaving just the right amount of time and space for the unexpected. To feel as though you are part of the Italian culture is a testament to the insightful precision of a thoughtful journey-because in the end, its all about the roads taken.

I loved my journey!"
