with Alberto Z.

Alberto Z.

This expedition across Italy covers three distinct areas that offer a variety of local culture, architecture and food. Without having to travel for long transits this is the perfect way to see the must-sees as well as go off-the-beaten path. Using Alberto's experience and contacts in Italy, this trip was designed to give you access to authentic restaurants with delicious local food as well as competent local guides that are sure to make this journey a unique one.

The itinerary below is based on my personal experience with travelers looking for an ecotourism experience, it is just an example of what you can do - I can definitely help you modify this to make it your very own custom experience.

Your Insider
Alberto Z.

I graduated from Concordia University in Montreal in 2008 with a degree in History and soon after began sharing my knowledge of the world's civilizations through Kepri Expeditions. I have extensively traveled for many years and know that people enjoy meeting the local communities of the places they visit and want to experience their cultures. With my passion for traveling and curiosity for getting to know and learning about other cultures, I generate the adequate enthusiasm and excitement to make my trips unique. Ideally I would be able to get all travelers who go to Europe to see the differences in the food, the music and the personalities of the places they'll see, even within the same country.
