With September just a couple of weeks away my fall tour is nearing and we have a fun group of 16 this time. Can't wait to report back and let you know about all the fun we have. We will do a boat cruise, wine tasting, exploring a local farm & make our own pesto! I usua...

I just returned from my fall tour in Cinque Terre and am feeling so moved by my time there. Our small group of eight consisted of dear friends of mine and some new friends they brought along. We focused on hiking, wine tasting, and sampling delicious seafood but this t...

My second Cimino Tour this past fall was with ten wonderful people. We met a couple of times prior to the trip to discuss everyone's desires for their experience.  Top picks were a cooking class,  boat ride along the Italian Riviera and a day trip to another area. We a...
