Our Living Italy 7 day boutique itineraries began from our home base near Montefalco in Umbria, and involve numerous locals living in the area. We designed the various programs and itineraries initially based on our own experiences living here, and now include activities sourced from our wide circle of friends; cooks, winemakers, artists, potters, historians and musicians. The people you will meet on the programs are all part of an extened team of local residents who have a passion for their specific skills and produce as well as for their homes into which you are often invited.

Hi to Neil and Carol, We would like to thank you both for providing such an enjoyable visit to the region of Umbria. Hope that the trip home was not to stressful in the outcome for Carol. We greatly appreciated the flexibility in being able to see things and visit what might not have been in the original itinerary. Thanks... More

Carol Searle arranged a private tour for us - a couple in our 60s with very specific interests. She worked closely with me in tailoring a week in Umbria. She was available and responsive. She put together a 6 day trip that exceeded expectations. She chose very compatible and experienced local guides who spoke English, were charming, intelligent, and knowledgeable... More

There were only 2 people booked. The owners of the Living Italy company didn't show at all. Thx goodness we had a cooperative guide. Living Italy website impressive but not representative of what you really get. Suggest you look elsewhere and make sure there's company about! Not so good for a lone traveller.

I was the only client, the trip was still on. So I was happily surprised. The programme was true to the advertisements and the accommodation was good.

The owner of Camiano Piccolo Inn and Restaurant has a cousin affiliated with Living Italy who arranged local tours for me and a friend of the Umbrian countryside. We had a guide, driver and van and paired up with two others to experience all that beautiful Umbria has to offer: tours of cities, wine tasting, olive vineyard tours, cooking lessons,... More

I've just returned from my 4th trip with Living Italy in Montefalco, organised superbly and seamlessly as usual by Carol and Neil. I was there for three weeks, my main focus being the Umbrian Music Festival 2015 (and I also thoroughly enjoyed the five cooking classes I attended as well!) Carol organised ten concerts for us to attend. Absolutely divine... More

Fantastic tour. Group was small so was easily tailored to suit what we wanted to do each day. Carol, Neil and Julie are an abundance of knowledge which they share freely.

It's all been said before! The comforting experience of Camiano Piccolo... The incredible knowledge of all that is Umbrian from Neil Moore, Carol Searle and Cristina Tili, the wonderful peeps who choose these tours and the indescribable Magic of Umbria...... Cannot speak highly enough of any of the Living Italy tours! A smile crosses my face at the thought! Definitely... More

Thank you to Living Italy for making our first visit to Umbria so memorable. It was my daughter's chosen destination for her 21st birthday trip and from the moment we were met at Foligno station we were made to feel welcome and amongst friends. To our surprise we were the only two to have booked for the week long tour... More
