Since 2013 I have been running the ‘Explore Abruzzo tours’ introducing tourists to the wonders of this beautiful region. From high altitude mountains down to the coastline, my aim has always been to show off as much of the area possible in 3 days. Together with my Italian counterpart Claudio we personally guide you through ancient ruins, medieval towns, glorious countryside and let you sample some of the finest food and wine available in Italy. It quickly became clear that due to Abruzzo’s lucrative property market, the interest in learning about the area, the property market and mixing the two subjects together was the way forward. From that day our ‘Explore Abruzzo& property tours’ were created. As part of one of the leading estate agents in Abruzzo, Vignaverde Srl, it was an obvious step for us to create a tour which not only took in all the sights possible in 3 days but to also to view properties along the way, without it feeling like a timeshare experience!. Since this move our past clients have praised us on our whole approach and for the wealth of knowledge they took back home with them about the area and the property market.
Our past clients have told us that this is a very unique tour which even lead to a large number investing in the area and many have said it was one of the best experiences they have ever had as not only did they get to explore this area they met new people sharing the same interest, Abruzzo. . These kind of comments make me more determined to carry on introducing new types of tours from wine tours to foodie tours, all of which will open the door to this wonderful area.
I look forward to welcoming you to Abruzzo.

Abruzzo is a wonderful place, the region is making headlines all over the world. A recent article in a well known British newspaper described it well by saying ‘If you’re looking for a well-kept secret, this is it.’ The delights of this region make tour designing the easy part. Our basic principles are to make them affordable and well packed.
We will be creating a new tour in 2017 based around two of my favourite pastimes, drinking and eating! This tour will include truffle hunting (during the season), cooking classes, wine tasting and tours of some of the best local specialist suppliers and vinyards in the whole of Italy. We are busy planning this tour and further information will be given a few months before the launch.
