Thanks to our network of researchers, guides and tour operators we organize itineraries in Italy tailor-made for you.

With the support of specialized genealogists, we reconstruct, if necessary, your family tree, we identify the places linked to your family history, the home of your ancestors and, if the data permits, we trace relatives resident in Italy.

So we organize a personalized travel experience, which can last one day, and in this case the itinerary will touch the country of origin and the places that recall family memories, or several days, also including a series of activities that will allow you to delve into Italian culture with its traditions.

And of course we will assist you if you want to visit other tourist places during your stay in Italy. If you are in search of your roots and want to experience an exciting trip to Italy along the thread of your history, you are in the right place.
