We are a very small company, there is only three of us, but because we are very efficient (!) we can meet the challenge to welcome you with the high standards you require.
20 years ago, when I came back to live in Italy after spending most of my life abroad, mainly Switzerland and France, with a short (2 years) period in the States I started this company mainly because travelling was my passion and the only field I felt I had some skills and opportunity for success. My initial idea which was to take Italian people abroad on adventure tours proved unsuccessful; However, I rediscovered my own country scouting for tours and exploring out of the beaten path trails.I also discovered a different way of travelling with more attention to local realities . at the slower pace of a walker. My life abroad has proven a plus as it allowed me a better understanding of the way of thinking and of the needs of our foreign custumers. Cristina and Beppe have joined me almost since the beginning and now we are a well proven team.
I am the operations manager, the one who, with Giuliana, designs the new tours, discovers new itineraries, deals with the complexities of the logistic which I promise you is not an easy task. This is why is me you meet for a bike fitting when you arrive and it is me you call to solve whichever problem you may incur during your stay with us. Not that I can solve all of them, but I do my best. I try to chose the best bicycles , to make sure the road-books are reviewed every season so that you do not get lost and if you happen to be, I am always within reach on my cell phone to help out. The fact that plenty of you come back is a good proof that I do not do my job too badly!
I have been working with Viadelsole for 15 years now. Although we are very flexible and can replace each other easily, I specifically take care of the accounting, and of the pricing. Because my mother is from Uruguay I spent part of my life abroad, in Montevideo first, then in New York an only later in Rome.When I arrived in Umbria I bought an old stone farmhouse in the countryside near Perugia. I share it with my sister family, my mother and my daughter. Recently we turned part of it into a cosy b&b where we organize cooking classes as for a period of my life I, with a friend, owned a restaurant which was very successful and deserved a mention in the “Gambero Rosso” the bible of gourmet experts in Italy
