An Individual Trip in Calabria.

Exclusivity, discovering and traditions.

Viaggio individuale in Calabria, Sud Italia, con lezioni di cucina degustazioni e visite guidate.

When you choose Calabria as your travel destination, the risk is to find wonderful surprises.
That’s happened to Mr and Mrs Wanner, two beautiful people who are from Switzerland. They asked to Le Vie della Perla T.O. of organizing their 2 week tour in Calabria in order to discover the traditions, culture and gastronomy.

Their only request was that they preferred a tour at their own pace for enjoying all their excursions and activities!(Découverte et relax – Scoperta e relax)

This is a brief story of their Individual Tour where our travellers tell their emotions and remember of their tour in Calabria:

“Deux semaines pour visiter un bout de la Calabre.
De notre voyage, nous retiendrons tout d’abord l’accueil sympathique des habitants. L’organisation de la visite a été judicieusement faite par “Le VIE della PERLA” qui, entre autres, communique en Français.
La rencontre d’éleveurs et cultivateurs heureux de présenter leur savoir faire nous a fait chaud au cœur. Nous avons ainsi appris à cuisiner des pâtes faites maison, à reconnaître des plantes aromatiques, à partager les problèmes de fabrication bio d’huile d’olives, de la déguster avec un apéritif gargantuesque des produits du terroir.
Une autre dégustation des produits du terroir au milieu des muriers, nourriture pour les vers à soie, fut une superbe surprise.
Tous ces gens ont quitté leur métier de haut niveau pour revenir sur leurs terres. C’est magnifique de philosophie.
Ces activités ont été réparties dans le temps entre la visite de magnifiques villages souvent accrochés au flan de la montagne, de leurs églises et musées, ouverts pour nous. Sans oublier les parcs nationaux.
La Calabre bordée de mers offre un bon réseau routier et un centre attractif encore peu usité par les touristes souvent Italiens. Même si on ne comprend qu’une infime partie de ce qu’il se dit, la langue est chantante et nous berce.
Madame et Monsieur Wanner”

(“2 weeks for visiting a piece of Calabria.
The main thing that we remember of this trip is the welcoming of the local people. The tour was organized in a perfect way with every detail by LE VIE DELLA PERLA whose staff speaks French, too. The meeting with the farmers, who were so happy to show us their knowledge, filled up our heart.
We learnt to prepare the homemade pasta, how to recognize the aromatic plants and we discovered the problems for producing the organic olive oil, tasting it with an enormous aperitif based on typical products of that area.
A great surprise was a tasting of typical products which was organized under the mulberry trees.
These people left their job for dedicating to their ground and traditions. This is a wonderful philosophy of life!
Al these activities were a part of an itinerary with sightseeing of beautiful hamlets which hang down often the mountains, with their churches and museums which were opened just for us. Let’s not forget the National Parks.
Calabria is surrounded by the sea and provide a very good net of roads and the interior part of the region is less known by the flow of visitors and tourists, Italians too.
Unfortunately we understood just the minimum of what they said, but their language is so musical like a lullaby.)
Mrs and Mr Wanner”

This means “Travelling where hospitality comes straight from the heart!”
