For many second or third generation Italians, coming back to Italy to find living relatives or long-lost family friends or properties is just a dream. We can make this dream your reality.
On this tour, tailored to your needs, you can trace your lineage in person alongside one of our personal guides who will help you weed through documents, translate old records and find your connections. There is a new world to be discovered when you come and visit what your parents may have called the “old world“.
Here’s what your heritage trip would be like:
- Fill out this form to send us your family member’s date of birth and other information.
- We will immediately review your request and get in touch with you.
- We plan your tour and provide you with a quote. You book your airline travel and accommodations.
- After your arrival in Italy, we take you to your ancestral town, look through registries at the city hall, give you a guided tour, visit churches and cemeteries, meet some local people and try to meet relatives. You may bring photos, letters and other heirloom items with you in case you meet relatives or old family friends. You step back in time and imagine the lifestyle of your ancestors. You walk the same roads, gaze at the same mountains and eat the same traditional foods. We provide an English-speaking guide, a genealogy expert and a car service, all in one. We do frequent genealogy tours and we are experts. We know many of the city hall clerks and we get the job done.
