Umbria Tour in Quad

Take a guided tour around Lago Trasimeno in quad or rent quads and go on your own.  This was such an awesome adventure and I’m so glad that we did it.  The tracks were crazy. Luca was awesome, spoke perfect English and stopped and helped us on all of the technical parts.

Here’s a video clip from our recent tour:

Canyoning and Ziplining in the Matese National Forest through the Gole di Caccaviola, Cusano Mutri

A quick drive from Naples, just north of Benevento, is the Matese National Forest.  With clean mountain air, stunning views, deep gorges, tall mountains and beautfiul valleys, it’s a place worth discovering.  Matese Escursioni offers various outdoor guided activities in the Matese National Forest, including horse back riding, biking, hiking, canyoning, parco avventura (kids rope courses) to name a few.   We chose canyoning, suited up with our kids and headed to the top of the gorge “Gole di Caccaviola, Cusano Mutri”.   Continue reading Canyoning and Ziplining in the Matese National Forest through the Gole di Caccaviola, Cusano Mutri

Parco Avventura – Ropes / Adventure courses throughout Italy (for kids and adults)

Throughout Italy, there are hidden gems called Parco Avventura or parchi avventura.  These adventure parks are usually off the beaten path, but worth the stop if you love ropes courses or you need your kids to burn off some energy.  They offer various courses starting with a climb or rock wall, continuing with ropes or elevated obstacle courses and usually end with a zip line. Some parks also have separate courses for archery and go kart driving. We always try to incorporate a Parco Avventura stop when we take road trips, to give our boys something to look forward to.  Each park is different and offers courses of various difficulties for various ages.

SUP Tour Amalfi Coast – Cetara to Erchie

This is the second time I’ve done a SUP (Stand Up Paddling) tour with this company and it is one of my favorites.  The water has been very calm both times and the views are amazing.  They launch from Hotel Cetus (parking is at the hotel) near Cetara and have 2 options to go towards the beach in Vietri or to go around the cape past Erchie.  Both directions take 2 hours are amazingly awesome.  The trip to and from Vietri is a bit easier as you’re more protected and the water is generally calmer.  In the afternoons, the wind picks up near Cetara.  Morning tours are best.  The guides carry insurance, follow along in a boat and take pictures.  The company provides the SUP boards, paddles, life jackets and safety leashes.  Great experience.  I’ve been talking to them about rates, so if you’d like to book, mention me (Julie) when you email or call Giusy for better rates or contact me and I’ll help you schedule a tour.  They do provide a guide that can give instructions.  Amazing and a MUST DO!  Minimum 2 people, maximum 5 people.  Rates vary from €45-55 per person, depending on number in group.

Vino e Vespa Tour Napoli – Posillipo or Vomero

As part of the Wine & The City event in Napoli during the month of May, wine tasting tours are offered via Vespa (with an italian driver).  This only occurs in May each year and is only 6 days, mainly on weekends.  I have to say it was one of the best tours I’ve done in Naples.  If you have to choose, the Posillipo tour is spent more on the Vespa.  The Vomero tour is less time on the Vespa, more time walking.  In fact, people joined our tour as a walking tour.  If I had the choice, I would pick the Posillipo option again.
