The culinary and lifestyle trips that I host in Italy are unique because it’s a real Italian experience where the group is immersed in the way of life for Italians. We stay at a family owned hotel where the staff is extremely gracious. Pictured here is the owner, Luigi Ferrara (all the way to the left) and his staff. The man in the light colored pants is Luigi’s father who rides his bike from his home in the mountains each day to the hotel for a brief visit. I’m going to miss Maiori and the people here!
