Have you started looking at flights yet? We know you have! Inquiries have been coming into Casa Mia daily and it feels so good to be back. We are NOT abandoning our online presence. We repeat, we are NOT abandoning our online presence. We could not do that to you, our beloved community. We could not do that to us either! However, we love our in-person tours as well. So here we are…a compromise of sorts for the time being. Allow us to present to you our August Arm Chair Travel. Real time, live streaming, tours of Italy.
Have you already been to these cities? It’s time to return. You want to go back. If you never have been, this is your opportunity to get a taste! Our guides live and breathe their cities. They know what the locals know, because they are true locals. So brew up a pot of coffee, or uncork a bottle of Prosecco – there is no judgement here. Whatever you choose, take a break from the sun and do a bit of arm chair travel. Andiamo!
