Valentina Cirasola Italian born, transplanted in California is an Interior Designer by trade, food lover by passion and author of three books. Her business has evolved into various avenues. She is now taking groups of curious travelers to her native country. She has organized theme trips in the fashion industry; cooking and wine tasting trips; design trips and shopping for antiques or free-spirit trips just for fun. Valentina is NOT a travel agency, she only wants to spread the Italian culture to America and take lovers of Italy to visit her country and her native region of Puglia.
Puglia is a Southern Italian Region situated East on the Adriatic Sea. Here the majestic past is written on the walls of small towns and cities. The past is still so very present and the nights are magical in Puglia! The tones in Puglia are simple and limpid, the air smell of salt from the Sea, pasture from the country and wines from vineyards. Romanic Cathedrals, Baroque architecture, conic shaped homes, along with cozy beaches and caper plants characterize the area.
Valentina’s guests will stay in ancient farmhouses with modern amenities for today’s living and she will take a personal attention to each one. The program include visit to museums and castle, potteries and food in the making; markets, shopping in hideaway boutiques and tasting the wines that “Wine Enthusiast Magazine” raved about in this article:
