I was fortunate enough to visit the Romagna region of Italy with three friends for a scheduled event in late September. We rented a house in Bellaria Igea Marina. We had a couple "free" days at the end of our visit before leaving to depart for Rome and had discussed ideas as to what we might like to do.
As good fortune would have it, the owners of the property are related to Ramona, who runs Buonjourney Italy and offered to put me in contact with her. I reviewed the website and immediately took them up on the offer.
From my initial contact, through our last hours spent together, Ramona and her team provided the best experience we could have imagined!
Ramona crafted a most special, custom, two-day tour full of cultural and culinary experiences. Each day we were comfortably transported by a private driver to one memorable experience after another. We visited Renaissance villages with breathtaking castles, forts and endless views of the region. We toured an award-winning vineyard and enjoyed tasting the fruits of their labor! We enjoyed two amazing dinners, including one at the top of a mountain! We learned about aging cheese and sampled the work! And perhaps our favorite, we prepared our own pasta and piadina under the tutelage of a legendary Italian chef! All of this and much more was done alongside our incredible host Ramona and her team who provided invaluable cultural and culinary history and commentary!
The diversity of activities, the experiences and the tastes were all unforgettable! Each one of us remarked that what we accomplished in two days was amazing and the value unsurpassed from anything we imagined!
For a genuine "Italian" experience you will never forget I HIGHLY recommend Buonjourney Italy!
