HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDED


-SPECTACULAR, EXHILARATING HIKE to the TOP of Mt. Epomeo

- WORLD-CLASS FOODS, FUN AND WINES: 

We ate.  We drank.

We sang.

We danced our hearts out and

We played gigantic tamburros with Neapolitan musicians!


NAPOLI: The people and the city have Lisa's heart.  3000 years of philosophy, of passion, pizza, chaos, color, serenity, myths- both ancient and modern...She can't wait to show you why.  


ISCHIA: For years, Lisa has been visiting the charming and rustic fishing village, described as the "Capri of the 1950's". Now she wants to share it with you.
