    It was an amazing I look back we did so many things in such a short time. It was a successful genealogy trip with finding more than I incredible that we walked in their town, saw records of their life and visited the church where our grandparents married...all leading to where each of us came from. I don't think we could have asked for much more. Thank you ItalianSide!

    Christine - USA
    Our genealogy tour with ItalianSide was wonderful, wonderful!! We had a great time and now precious memories. What did we like best? Cannot really say? Finding more records of our ancestors, visiting the church where our grandparents were married, walking the roads where they had walked, all very exciting. My opinion - this is a very creative type of tour - the cooking lessons, the winery, the cheese and salami lunch - great experiences. The beautiful scenery and churches all very nice.
