I was travelling solo for the first time, but they made it entirely comfortable and made me feel very welcome. They take groups of up to 8 (ours was 6) and because you base yourself in Ascoli there is no packing and unpacking every day. Each day is a mix of wineries, culture, cooking classes, long lunches, local sites and beautiful views.
There’s plenty of time for yourself, and Chantelle and Giovanni take the time to show you anything that you have a particular interest in. If you want to do some extra shopping they’ll happily show you their favourite places. This is relaxed touring with a personalised touch where you are meeting the winemakers or producers. This is where the tour operators live and work, so they have relationships with the people you meet that go beyond herding people in with the hope they will buy merchandise. Every experience feels very authentic.
Ascoli itself was a great base for the tour. As a solo traveller it felt very safe. I was completely comfortable wandering around by myself in my free time.”

ACCOMMODATIONS Nestled in the heart of Ascoli Piceno’s Centro Storico (Historic Center) our selected accommodation is a stunning property that is locally-owned and operated. Once having its life as a noble palace and convent, the two were combined to create a perfectly curated luxury boutique 4-star stay that is a unique expression of our territory. Tucked away down a cobble-stone paved alley its position offers tranquility, yet it is conveniently located just steps away from the city center and one of Italy’s most beautiful squares: Piazza del Popolo (The People’s Square). It is the perfect location to immerse yourself in the rhythm of our city, allowing you to easily enjoy an evening passeggiata (stroll), and ease into what the Italians call “La Dolce Vita”.
