Coaches! Host Your Retreat in Italy!
Host a Retreat
Have you always wanted to host a retreat in Italy, but didn't have the time to do the research to plan it perfectly? Well, we can do it for you. We help badass coaches and practitioners host life-changing retreats in Italy. We take care of the details so you can take care of your clients.
Before starting her business in the Italy tour industry 10 years ago, Kerri was a life coach and offered regular retreats before finding her real passion... Italy!!! Now she has put both of her passions together to help others host retreats in Italy.
Please note: We can only take 8 Coaches per year and it's best to start planning 12-18 months in advance.

Gastronomic Food Experience
This experience is truly off the beaten path. Taking place in the region of Lazio (where Rome is located), we will explore tiny towns and villages from over 2400 years ago. You may be thinking... Why? Why go to these tiny places no one else knows of?
Enter Angela Belli! Angela is a chef and grew up in this area learning traditional recipes from her family and friends. Now, Kerri and Angela will share with you the amazing range of flavors, foods and wines unique to the area and Italy.
You will sink your teeth into pizza by the slice, learn how chocolate is made (and probably get some on your face), visit a buffalo farm (and taste the incredible buffalo mozzarella)... and don't worry, we aren't forgetting the wine. At the end of the week we will celebrate italian style with a huge festa (party) at Angela's friend's home, complete with live music and a cooking class.
Language Immersion Experience
Ciao e benvenuto! If you've ever tried learning a language you know that it can be a difficult task, especially if you aren't surrounded by the language. This incredible experience will not only immerse you into the language, but also the regions of Tuscany and Umbria. Two of the most beautiful regions in Italy.
Daily language classes will be taught by Martina Scattolin, who grew up in a VERY tiny town outside of Venice. No, you haven't heard of it. Each class will be approximately 2 hours and will focus on the activity planned for that day. For example, if we are going to a pasta making factory, we will focus on learning words and phrases you will need to know for this activity.
There will be 2 levels offered. Beginner (must have a very basic level italian, not true beginner) and intermediate. Don't know your level, that's ok, we will have a short quiz to see which group you fall in.
Music fans rejoice! Finally a tour to explore Umbria and Orvieto is here, but with a mind-blowing twist... MUSIC. Think of all the things you want to do when you go to Italy... I'm guessing you'll want to see the countryside, the town of Orvieto and it's underground, wine tasting, possibly a cooking class and maybe even go trekking to farm for some delicious local tastes...
Well imagine you get all that, but each location is accompanied by music from highly acclaimed local artists. Music that suits the mood, ambiance and location for each day.
How did this idea come together? Let me introduce Bartender! Not only are they great friends with your guide Kerri, they are also well known in the area as well as touring much of the world. Between all these minds an idea was born... why JUST see Italy, when you can experience it through music. You'll get to know these artists like family as they share their hometown and area through their favorite locations and sounds.
Secret Heart of Italy
Are you having a hard time deciding which amazing experiences to join?
Well, I have a secret for you! You can enjoy a little bit of all three in this tour that navigates all the most important towns of Italy.
With your trusty guide Kerri, you will explore Rome, Florence, and Venice, as well as a bit of Tuscany and Umbria. Hitting the major sights with exceptional guides. You'll visit the Colosseum, Vatican, Sistine Chapel, the David, Uffizi Gallery, Duomo, St. Mark's, Doge's Palace, Murano (think glass), Burano (think lace), Orvieto, Pisa, Lucca, San Galgano, San Gimignano and so much more.
So where do all these other amazing experiences enter in... While we are in Rome, we will enjoy a beginner language lesson to get us ready for our 14 days in Italy. While in Orvieto, we will enjoy a private concert with Bartender. While in Tuscany, our tastebuds will delight as we sip wine and soak up some cooking knowledge.

What People are saying!
Mark and Rosanne Rixon
"As a novice European traveler, assistance getting to and from the airport/train station was extremely helpful. As well as the pre-arranged metro/bus tickets and instructions you provided made it easier to quickly learn how to use public transportation. We liked seeing the touristy "things" in Rome, but also enjoyed experiencing more authentic Italian life!"
