The purpose of our trip to southern Italy was to visit the small city of Riccia in Molise where our grandparents were born. Our agent created a wonderful itinerary for us that included time in Naples and the Amalfi Coast. She arranged for all of our accommodations, tour guides, and drivers. We could not have been more pleased with the results. She answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. I will definitely call on her for my next trip to Italy.
Visiting Riccia was memorable because we got to see for the first time the place where our grandparents left over 100 years ago. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and surrounding area. He enthusiastically shared his interests in history and culture. He also acted as translator for us at the city hall where the local officials searched for birth records for our grandparents and great grandparents. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
Other highlights suggested by our agent included a walking tour of Naples. Along with informing us about the city's history and historical sites, our guide also helped us to understand the city's culture and people. We were a bit nervous about visiting Naples, but now want to go back and spend more time.
We spend the first part of our trip using the lovely town of Sorrento as our base. We took several day trips to Ravello, Amalfi and Positano. Our agent arranged for us to have a tour and lunch at Agriturismo Galatea, an organic family-owned farm where we sampled and learned about making all kinds of delicious foods like olive oil, mozzarella, and sausages.
I would like to spend more time in Riccia and the surrounding area. I also fell in love with Sorrento and would have liked more time to explore. However, we packed a lot of activities into one week!
