Shirley – USA
“It was an amazing trip…as I look back we did so many things in such a short time. It was a successful genealogy trip with finding more than I anticipated….how 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.”

Christine – USA
Our genealogy tour 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.

“Ciao!! We got back early Monday morning.
We had a fantastic trip. Thanks to ItalianSide for making it so wonderful.
Andrea was wonderful. He was a delight to spend time with. He was a very careful driver. A wonderful translator. He was very very helpful. I have made new family in the region of Italy that my great grandparents came from. This all due to the connection you made for me. Thank you thank you thank you again.
I will continue to suggest anyone who wishes to tour Italy to get in touch with you guys take care and God bless”

Gina – USA
“My family and I had excellent tours in Matera and Irsina. Dora and Eleonora were awesome! I learned so much about my family roots in the short time we had in Irsina. Seeing where my grandparents and great-grandparents were married was a thrill! Seeing the street where my grandmother was born left me speechless. The tour of Matera was amazing! Dora took us to places that I don’t believe we would have found on our own.
Thank you so much for putting me in touch with such wonderful and nice ladies. It was a joyful day!”

Bernadette – Australia
“Thank you for helping me to arrange my trip. It was wonderful.
You took out all the worry about travelling on my own so I could really enjoy myself and soak up the atmosphere.
Everyone really looked after me and was very helpful in the towns I visited.
The itinerary, the local guides, the driver were all wonderful.
I was able to do some great research in my grandfathers hometown and speak with people in the town, the commune and the library.
I saw where my grandfather grew up over 100 years ago and where his family lived. I even saw his ancestors referenced in the local library.
Family research is a long process, but it makes it all the more exciting when you have Italian roots in such a beautiful country.
Someone once said that “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles”.
Through ItalianSide and the many wonderful people I met in Italy I’m absolutely convinced of this.
It’s important to know where you have come from in order to know where you are going.
Thanks to ItalianSide for helping to make this happen.”
