General Information About Our Tours
We offer four main tours to the areas in Southern Italy that travelers have favored for years for their spectacular scenery, gorgeous weather, mouth-watering cuisine and variety of cultural events and adventurous excursions. In addition, Tierno Tours creates Specialty Tours every year to satisfy particular interests. All of our tours are custom designed to ensure an authentic Southern Italy experience.
In keeping with the theme of our trips, accommodations are chosen to depict the charm characterizing the southern Italian culture. Where available, they are restored historical buildings - elegant castles or charming villas furnished with period antiques and other accommodations classic to the area. All bedrooms have private bathrooms.
Wherever possible, meals will be in charming restaurants instead of in a hotel. Breakfast is continental (juice, milk, pastries-breads, cheese and coffee-tea). Tierno Tours has planned authentic meals based on the region you are visiting with the option to participate in and learn the making of these century-long traditions or relax with a cocktail and enjoy the beautiful culture around you.
