Local Living Italy: Sorrento

Get a taste for Italian life on this one-week Local Living trip to Sorrento, located just around the corner from the Amalfi Coast. Replete with gorgeous scenery and all the fantastic food and drink you’d expect, you’ll unwind on a lemon farm where a local family will be your hosts, giving you an in-depth look at what life at an Italian agriturismo is like. And of course, there will be food demonstrations including limoncello- and pizza-making as well as a walk along the stunning coastline, a visit to the elite island of Capri and a stop at Pompeii. Don’t be a tourist in Italy—live the dream.

      I am going to be in England mid September so was hoping to try to do it while I am there. I think there may be an opening in October if you prefer that. Let me see what there is for space in October and get back to you. I know, it looks wonderful!

      The tours I see right now vary from about 1500 Cad up to 1700 or so. We may have to create our own space as I think they are mostly booked up right now. I am working on it. Pricing includes taxes but not flights. Flights range from about 1200 to 1600 per person also including taxes.

      If that is the best date I can rearrange my schedule. I was hoping to be in France til Sept 29th. I am flexible though.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
